Camille Paglia: The War on Men, Masculinity & the Family

War on Men

The war on men is silently killing society. Masculinity is often defined by ‘Tel Lie Vision.”  But the emasculation of men is happening in many ways. Take a look below:

“This PC gender politics thing—the way gender is being taught in the universities—in a very anti-male way, it’s all about neutralization of maleness.” – Camille Paglia

Camille Paglia is an ideal feminist.  A lesbian and self-proclaimed “dissident feminist,” she has written a number of books and taught as a professor at the University of the Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, since 1984.  Her role models were women like Amelia Earhart and Katharine Hepburn, who were confident, strategic, and capable of competing with men while also wearing their beauty on their sleeve.  She’s outspoken, independent, feminine and a warrior for humanity. She is easy to hate, maybe even harder to love due her complexity, but she is a refreshing alternative to the brand of feminism that wishes to castrate, emasculate and bury men. Camille Paglia has basically said in her own words their is absolutely a WAR on MEN!

Below are some random bits of information regarding “conventional” feminism, along with a few quotes from Ms. Paglia on the matters.

The Footstools of Female Ferocity a Serious War on Men

After watching any reality TV show named “___(fill in the blank)___ Housewives” you will clearly see how men have become cartoonish characters for feminine sexual manipulation and ferocity. Reality TV portrays women’s faults as feminine power on the rise and sex as a means to manipulate. Camille Paglia, a firm feminist and advocate for all humanity, states, “What you’re seeing is the primal battles going on among women. Men are marginalized on these shows — they’re eye candy, to use Obama’s phrase, on the borderlines of the ferocity of female sexuality.”

“When it defines man as the enemy, feminism is alienating women from their own bodies.”  – Camille Paglia

Minimizing Male Role Models – Hollywoods War on Men

Twenty years ago you had several positive shows that highlighted not only women, but also men:  The Cosby Show, for one.  Or what about “A Different World,” that showcased positive young educated black women and men.  There was “Family Matters,” “The Fresh Prince of Bel Air,” “Friends,” “Full House,” “Home Improvement,” and others. TV showed examples of positive masculine role models that young men could look up to. Today, however, TV is filled with dysfunctional reality TV shows minimizing men.

The Legal System Discriminates Against Men – The Government’s War on Men

In both divorce and child custody cases men are statistically the ones left with the bill and limited access to kids. Yet when issues arise with the children, the father is the first and only one blamed for the child’s issues. Men are penalized with enormous alimony and child support payments, regardless of the time length or circumstances regarding the relationship.  Men only receive custody of their children in around 10 percent of divorce cases in the United States.

Hidden Abuse Against Men:

In the UK for example, 44 per cent of domestic abuse victims are male, while more married men suffer abuse at the hands of their spouse than married women.

“Be a Man”

Still don’t think their is a war on men? How many times have you heard a women chat with friends about a boyfriend or husband and use the statement, “be a man”? I always want to interrupt and say, “if he was being a man you would not like him very much. Your statement would then be, ‘he’s an asshole.'”

“A woman simply is, but a man must become. Masculinity is risky and elusive. It is achieved by a revolt from woman, and it is confirmed only by other men. Manhood coerced into sensitivity is no manhood at all.” – Camille Paglia

Feminism at its best should simply wish to empower women, without the need to dis empower anyone else.  We should think of our sons and our daughters, how we want them both to feel free to express themselves in healthy ways and strive to reach their fullest potential.  Recognize their differences and embrace them for those differences.  Encourage them to be strong and stand up for their beliefs.  And most importantly, teach them how to relate to one another with love and respect, so that hopefully someday we can see an end to the way dysfunctional gender wars are being played out in society.
