Karen Straughan tackles a one-sided CBC interview about men’s rights

I do enjoy when media outlets bring someone on to discuss an issue the person has zero involvement with. The CBC, Canada’s government funded news organization, invited on professor Rebecca Sullivan to discuss the film The Red Pill. The film was to be screened at the University of Calagary, however, the screening was pulled after the Wildrose On Campus (WROC) “sent out an email inviting people to the screening by saying everyone knows ‘feminism is cancer.'”

The CBC decided to interview Sullivan to get an understanding of the men’s rights movement. They could have interviewed Cassie Jaye or a men’s rights activist, as they would have better knowledge about the subject, but that would be logical. It is instead much better to interview someone abjectly opposed to the men’s rights movement and who has not seen the film. This person would provide the most objective analysis.

Karen Straughan points out the utter inanity of the interview and Sullivan’s points in her recent video. I remain mystified by the feminist response to The Red Pill. I doubt that most of the feminists criticizing the film ever saw it. They certainly do not appear to know the points argued by men’s rights activists in the film. It appears that they are reflexively attacking the film because it does not attack the men’s rights movement. Continue reading

2 Former Penn State Administrators Plead Guilty To Roles In Abuse Scandal — Two former high-level Penn State administrators pleaded guilty Monday to misdemeanor charges of child endangerment, for their roles in covering up child sex abuse by disgraced assistant football coach Jerry Sandusky. Former Vice President Gary Schultz and former Athletic Director Tim Curley each took a plea bargain that — if accepted by the judge — will carry a penalty of up to five years in prison and a $10,000 fine. As part of the plea bargain, the felony charges they originally faced were reduced to misdemeanors.

Battered Men: The Hidden Hurt — Battered men desperately sought help for years in California, but their efforts consistently fell on deaf ears. It took four battered men and a 2008 lawsuit by the National Coalition for Men for the California Supreme Court to recognize that men are entitled to equal protection and advocacy support from domestic violence shelters. Domestic violence accounts for a surprising proportion of violent crime in the United States. Close to one in six murder victims is killed by an intimate partner. Nearly three-fourths of all murder-suicides involve an intimate partner.

Dozens Say Christian Leader Made British Boys ‘Bleed for Jesus’ — Having disclosed his “sin” of masturbation, Mark Stibbe, age 17, was ordered to strip naked and lean over a wooden chair in the garden shed of a lavish Hampshire mansion on the southern coast of England. Then came the first blow from a cane, its impact so ferocious that it sent the boy into a state of paralysis that lasted through at least 30 more strokes that left him collapsed on the floor, blood oozing down his legs.
