So please explain Misandry and use examples outside of Tumblr. Thanks

Far be it for me to deny myself the pleasure of an intellectual debate, so here we go:

A List Of Issues That Men Suffer In The USA Alone

Men suffer more casualties in war

currently, women are not even required by law to register for selective service, but even mentally challenged and physically disabled men are, in addition to all the healthy ones)


In contrast, women get every veteran’s benefit a man does, yet comprise less than 3% of combat deaths or casualties and a woman makes the cover of Time magazine (person of the year/2003 standing in front of two men.

Men have it rough in the workplace

  • Men are 93% of industrial deaths and accident (NIOSH)

  • Even though murder is the leading workplace cause of death for women, a statistic often used by gender feminists, that number is only a percentage of the 6% of workplace deaths that women comprise.  In other words, a fraction of a small fraction.


Men die more often from unnatural causes than women


Men are the overwhelming majority of rape victims

Other facts regarding men and rape:

Men get screwed over in divorce and custody courts

  • A woman is the party filing for divorce in about 66% of divorce cases.

    “How often was it that many more of women wanted the divorce more than the men?
    2/3. The same as the amount responsible for divorce filings. And yet another study of divorced couples found that the majority of divorced wives and husbands both agreed it was the wife who wanted out.”
  • Women receive custody in about 84% of child custody cases.

    In the spring of 2002, an estimated 13.4 million parents had custody of 21.5 million children under 21 years of age whose other parent lived somewhere else. About 5 of every 6 custodial parents were mothers (84.4 percent) and 1in 6 were fathers (15.6 percent), proportions statistically unchanged since 1994

According to Los Angeles divorce consultant Jayne Major:

“Divorced men are often devastated by the loss of their children. It’s a little known fact that in the United States men initiate only a small number of the divorces involving children. Most of the men I deal with never saw their divorces coming, and they are often treated very unfairly by the family courts.’”

  • Paternity fraud is rampant in the U.S.

    30% of those named as fathers who test for paternity find they are not the biological father.
  • Not only is all this imbalance around marriage and children unfair to men, we must also consider that the damaged inflicted on fatherless children is staggering:

        63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.

        90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.

        85% of all children who show behavior disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Center for Disease Control)

        80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behavior, Vol 14, p. 403-26)

        71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)

        75% of all adolescent patients in chemical abuse centers come from fatherless homes – 10 times the average. (Rainbows for All God’s Children)

        70% of youths in state-operated institutions come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (U.S. Dept. of Justice, Sept. 1988)

        85% of all youths in prison come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Fulton Co. Georgia, Texas Dept. of Correction)

Men are often screwed over in the Justice System as well.

  • There is blatant anti-male discrimination in the criminal justice system and the sentencing disparity between men and women exceeds that between whites and any other minority.
  • Avg sentences for crime by gender:

    Female – 18.51 months
    Male – 51.52 months
  • “Judge bashes Probation Department for gender bias in favor of leniency for girls”
  • The 2006 United States’ rate of incarceration of 751 inmates per 100,000 population is the highest reported rate in the world, well ahead of the Russian rate of 628 per 100,000.

    93% of the prison population is male with over 60% having no High School education.   America has now passed Russia as the country that has the largest percentage of its population incarcerated, yet we still claim to be the freest country on earth.

    The number of persons on probation and parole has been growing dramatically along with institutional populations. There are now 7.2 million Americans incarcerated or on probation or parole, an increase of more than 290 percent since 1980.
  • The problem of sentencing disparities is compounded by an epidemic of false accusations:

    205 (and growing) wrongly convicted people have been exonerated by DNA evidence since the beginning of the Innocence Project.

    204 of the wrongly convicted were men.

    Most of them were falsely imprisoned for rape.
  • As we saw in the Duke Lacrosse rape case  fiasco, false accusers are rarely prosecuted and when they are it is only as a misdemeanor (at most), while rape itself is vigorously prosecuted as a felony. The Duke false accuser, Crystal Gayle Mangum went on to commit assault, arson and finally murder before authorities made a good faith intervention.

    One attorney speaking at premiere for the movie, After Innocence, estimates that there are between 20,000 and 100,000 wrongly convicted still in prison.

    Valid research puts the estimated false rape reporting rate at 41%

Capital Punishments Target Men Almost Exclusively

  • Since the death penalty was reinstated in 1976, there have been over 1,200 executions in the United States. Eleven of them, or less than 1%, were women. This stands in stark contrast considering women commit, by DOJ estimates, 10% of all murders, are involved in 35% of all domestic homicides (are involved often means they get other people to kill for them) and nearly 30% of murders where the victim was another family member.

Other:

  • We hear a lot about the historical oppression of women’s voting rights, but few if any women who were born in the 20th century were every without the right to vote in their lifetime, upon reaching legal voting age.  On the other hand, around 2400 hundred California men (42% of CA men killed in Vietnam) gave their life for their country without being allowed by their country to vote.  The exact number is 2,381.  Four of the twelve Iwo Jimo flag raisers died for their country without their country ever allowing them the right to vote.
  • “The youngest Vietnam KIA is believed to be Dan Bullock USMC, at 15 years old.
    At least 5 men killed in Vietnam were 16 years old.
    At least 12 men killed in Vietnam were 17 years old.
    There are 120 persons who listed foreign countries as their home of record.
    At least 25,000 of those killed were 20 years old or younger.
    The oldest man killed was 62 years old.”

    If you do a full count on all the men in the 20th century who died for their country without being allowed to vote the numbers will be staggering.

    In America there are over 270 women’s commissions, but only one for men in New Hampshire.

    There are over 700 Women’s Studies programs on colleges and universities throughout the United States teaching thousands or tens of thousands of classes from the gender feminist perspective, but not one program or class, teaching men’s studies from the masculist perspective.

    Men are fully half of the victims  of domestic violence (26% of intimate partner homicides), yet are denied service at most tax payer funded domestic violence shelters.

    The CDC reports that in cases of non-reciprocal intimate partner violence (one directional) that women are more than twice as likely to be the aggressor. The report cites that women comprise 70% of perpetrators, men 29%.

    In the largest collection of studies on intimate partner violence known, Martin Fiebert of the California State University, Longbeach offers the following:

    SUMMARY:  This bibliography examines 286 scholarly investigations: 221 empirical studies and 65 reviews and/or analyses, which demonstrate that women are as physically aggressive, or more aggressive, than men in their relationships with their spouses or male partners.  The aggregate sample size in the reviewed studies exceeds 371,600. 
  • In another study the CDC lists male victims of domestic violence at more than 34%, but men injured in Iraq (and all other men) are by law in California excluded from domestic violence shelter services. Only one shelter in Lancaster, CA accepts men and it has been extensively harassed for doing so.

    That harassment is a systemic problem with origins that emanate from academe. Dr. Murray Straus, an internationally recognized expert on intimate partner violence published the following paper outlining the various ways that feminist ideologues suppress data and research on IPV that demonstrates gender symmetry in its incidence.
  • Men are subject to extreme discrimination in healthcare.

    Men today die on average 6 years sooner than women.  In 1920 the variance was one year.  The death rates for prostate and breast cancer are similar, but because men die of other things more frequently-accidents ,war, heart disease etc., there are fewer men left to die of prostate cancer.  This is akin to saying people from a nation like Zimbabwe are immune to Alzheimer’s- but in fact they die of other things before they can get old enough to contract Alzheimer’s.

    To date, there are numerous federal offices on women’s health, and not a single one for men. Also, the lion’s share of gender specific medical research is done on behalf of women.

    Men and boys are suffering decline in the educational system. Department of Education graph:

    Boys are facing a significantly harder time in early education than girls. Yet girls, from primary education through college still benefit from many more special programs designed to help them gain “equality” with males.

Some info on the wage gap

  • The wage gap myth based on the “comparable worth” paradigm:
    • The wage gap myth based on the “comparable worth” paradigm:
  • While men make more money than women on average, women control and spend vastly more money than men.
  • Women as an economically disadvantaged group is a myth that negatively affects men.

    Not too long ago, legendary adman David Ogilvy chided his peers for talking down to women. He berated those who ignored women or discounted them, misconstruing men’s higher paychecks to mean greater spending clout. And he was right. According to the Bureau of Economic Analysis, women–who comprise just over 51 percent of the U.S. population, making them the largest consumer segment in the country–control six trillion dollars in buying power annually. Statistics show that:

    Women make 88 percent of all U.S. retail purchases. Some experts even predict that, by 2020, women will control most of the money in America.

    Women control 88 percent of all purchases.

    Women handle 75 percent of family finances. 43 percent of those with assets over $500,000 are women.

    Women influence two out of every three of the 3 trillion dollars spent in the U.S. each year!

    From the Sisters4Sisters Yellow Pages:

        Women are starting businesses at twice the rate of men.

        One out of every 11 American women owns her own business.

        Currently there are over 10.6 million women-owned businesses employing 19.1 million people and generating $2.5 trillion in sales.

        Women make or influence over 85% of all purchasing decisions.

        In 2010, women have the majority of wealth in America.

    Men pay the majority of social security taxes and are outlived by six years by women, but the government makes no fair adjustment to how those funds are distributed.

    In summary, men experience systematic discrimination in parenting, domestic violence policies, education, criminal sentencing, paternity, forced labor, military conscription, public health policies, genital integrity, false accusations, reproductive rights, portrayal by the media and in the coverage of their issues by the news media.

    Misandry is often expressed through racism.

    From Scottsboro An American Tragedy.

    “The protection of white womanhood, it might be the pivot around all Southern culture. Of the 5,000 people who were lynched from 1880 to 1940, most were black men accused of raping or sexually assaulting white women.” – Robin Kelly, Historian

    From American Man

    “In 1931, two white women stepped from a boxcar in Paint Rock, Alabama to make a shocking accusation: they had been raped by nine black teenagers on the train.” … ”- a poor white woman whose lie lends her respectability…”
    PBS Home Video

    Scottsboro An American Tragedy
    The case that sparked the civil rights movement

    As we have seen with the “war on drugs,” legislation like VAWA, primary aggressor laws, mandatory arrest laws and the like have a disproportionately negative effect on minorities and other low income populations.
  • Or the differences in healthcare for men and women in Obamacare program
  • Young men will be the biggest losers in the transition to Obamacare. Reports estimate that males as a whole will see:

        11% increase in insurance premiums compared to 9% drop in females

        Men under 40 will face 18% - 31% insurance hikes compared to females under 40 13% to 19% decrease

        Young men ages 25-36 will could face insurance premiums of 50% or more compared to young females 25-29 who will see 4% increase

Feminists don’t give a shit about anything I’ve read.

If men aren’t Feminists, they’re scum. Hell, if men ARE Feminists, often time they’re told by RadFems to fuck off anyway. If women aren’t Feminists, they “don’t love themselves” or suffer from “internalized misogyny.” Feminism only gives a shit about advancing their dogma, and other Feminists. I’ve yet to see any way, shape, or form they’ve demonstrated otherwise.

Special Thanks to Alicia for retaining information here. I can expand with something entirely original if you like, to elaborate on why I despise the current incarnation of Feminism and several of it’s backwards ideals.

I’ve compiled a list of my most frequently asked questions over the past few weeks in a new video :D.  One of the questions I get the most is: “What are the cheapest materials I can use that will still produce good results?”

Everyone has their own preferences when working with dolls, whether you use pencils, paints, airbrush, or other methods to create the faceup.  This is just the simplest list I could come up with while also being safe, hassle free, and good beginner quality.

1.  A respirator and gloves ($16.99, $1).

  • These pieces of equipment just can’t be fudged.  Your health is more important that saving a few bucks.  You need a respirator that will effectively filter out fumes, vapors, and particles.  You can get a NIOSH approved respirator for about $16.99 here.  Remember to change your filters as often as needed (indicated in the instructions for your respirator) and follow the instructions for fitting your mask properly.  Using a mask without a good seal on your face = not really using a mask at all. 
  • Gloves can be latex, latex free, plastic, etc, as long as they create a barrier between your skin and the chemicals you’re using.  You can find a small pack of gloves at any dollar store for a buck.

2.  Removing the faceup ($5-$6).

  • The easiest and cleanest way to remove default facepaint is with 100% acetone or Windsor and Newton Brush cleaner.  Don’t fool with ‘nail polish remover with acetone,’ it will only smear and stain your doll.  Both contain pretty potent vapors, so remember to use a respirator and gloves to keep them from irritating your skin and lungs.  If you’re particularly sensitive, goggles can also be used to lessen eye irritation.  A 16oz bottle of acetone will run about $6 and can be found in most any big box or beauty supply store.  A 4oz bottle of Windsor and Newton brush cleaner runs about $5 and can be found in any art supply store.

3.  Priming and sealing your work ($5-$9.98)

  • The absolute cheapest, sort of effective spray for vinyl or resin heads is Testor’s Dullcote.  I personally hate using it.  It doesn’t provide enough tooth and has yellowed before.  However, if you’re strapped for cash and just need a primer/sealer it -will- work and won’t turn your work sticky.  You can grab a can at pretty much any art/hobby store for 5 bucks or less.
  • Mr. Super Clear Flat is my personal favorite and isn’t as expensive to find in the US as it was in previous years.  I get my cans here for $9.98. 
  • Always, always, ALWAYS wear a respirator and gloves and work in a well ventilated environment when using any aerosol spray.  Don’t fudge this and risk damaging your lungs, vocal cords, or worse.  Follow the instructions and heed the warnings on your can.  It’s not worth causing permanent damage to yourself over something that’s supposed to be a fun hobby.

4.  Paints ($11 or less.)

5.  Pastels ($6.99 or less).

  • Royal Langnickel has a good set of artist grade chalk pastels (never use oil pastels) for $6.99, but you can use any set of chalk pastels you like.  The price difference between a cheap set and a more expensive set is the difference between the amount of fillers used to create the pastel stick versus the pigment you get.  Cheaper pastels are typically less pigmented, meaning you have to use more between layers of sealer to get a vibrant color.  Sometimes it’s more cost and time effective to invest in a hand picked set of high quality pastels in the colors you use most frequently.

6.  Watercolor pencils ($17 or less.)

  • There are cheaper pencil sets you -could- use, but you’ll probably waste more pencil that it’s worth.  A good set of Derwent pencils runs about $17 or less, depending on where you purchase it.  Save yourself the frustration of trying to figure out why your pencils won’t draw/aren’t bright enough and just get this set, lol.

7.  The best sharpener ever ($8 or less).

The Alvin Dux inkwell sharpener is my favorite sharpener ever for watercolor pencils.  It creates a nice, sharp point and wastes as little pencil as possible.  You don’t necessarily need this sharpener, but it will save your pencils and your sanity.  Depending on where you get it (online or in most art stores), it will run about 8 bucks.

8.  Brushes ($1-$5)

  • A good set of basic acrylic brushes runs about $5 pretty much everywhere.  These will get the job done, but for more detail and control, you’ll probably want to invest in a few specialized brushes to go along with your workhorses.  I snag the brushes I go through like candy from Jerry’s Artarama’s dollar aisle.  I think most art stores have a cheapo option for brushes that run about a buck a piece.  I use these for blending, mixing, applying pastel, accidentally leaving in acetone overnight, forgetting to remove acrylic paint >_>… etc. 
  • For teensy, tiny details, I like Reaper’s fine line brushes.  They range from kinda small to practically microscopic in terms of line thickness.  They’re a bit more expensive per brush, though.  Just remember that the higher the number (IE: 1/0 versus 30/0), the smaller the brush and the finer the detail you can get with it.  Also keep in mind that some brushes have different shapes (filbert, round, liner, etc) and that effects both the way they paint, as well as how much paint they hold.

9.  Gloss! ($5)

10.  Last, but not least, the best freakin’ erasers ($4)

Soooo… if you bought the cheapest/most effective options from this list, a starter kit for faceups would run about $70-90, depending on where you get your materials and which materials you decide on.

This is by no means a definitive list or the list to end all lists, this is just what I came up with after years of trial and error :).  I hope it helps you find the best options for your repaints :D.
