Feminist alleges the Father’s Rights movement is supplying iFeminist Wendy McElroy with illicit drugs in exchange for positive publicity.

July 26, 2011

Catalogue – Wendy McElroy writes here.

“Consider a recent incident. In an article last month, I expressed skepticism over the Battered Woman Syndrome — a legal defense used to exonerate women who kill abusive men in the absence of imminent danger. The article is the last in a series that questions the prevailing domestic violence policies. How did feminists react?

The head of a feminist organization created a vicious lie about me and circulated it. The lie: I am a drug addict who supports the father’s rights movement because it supplies me with drugs. Her exact accusation was that the father’s rights movement is “providing you with drugs in exchange for positive publicity and a steady stream of attacks on their adversary.”

“This is not an isolated incident. Three weeks ago, I talked with a younger woman who wants to become an established columnist. She advocates political incorrectness, and does it well. Well enough to receive threats to her safety that make her father fret. She now has to weigh her freedom of speech against possible assault and damage to her father’s health.

How many other women have been battered into silence by PC feminists? Especially in academia, where political correctness holds sway…how many women have feminists intimidated into never speaking out at all?

At times I wonder whether the feminists who write harassing and threatening e-mails to other women ever pause and question their own decency. They claim to care passionately for women and to speak for womanhood as a category. But, to paraphrase Sojourner Truth:

“Aren’t we all women?”

When I contemplate such questions, I remember an e-mail I received from another prominent feminist. She responded to an article in which I described having lost sight in my right eye due to being battered. She literally crowed with pleasure, declaring that now she understood my political blindness.”

    It comes down to the fact that no matter how intelligent, how accomplished, or how ‘credible’ you are, if you’re a woman who supports mens rights….or strike that….is even just NOT a feminist….you get accused by other women of being some kind of weird self hating, submissive, stupid, brainwashed “MRA whore” with some bizarre hidden agenda to suppress all women every where.

    These are the same women who, if you lied and said you were a feminist would hug you and call you ‘sister’.

    • Welcome to the catalogue tasha415. Your story sounds familiar, I think that experiences like yours are common enough. You know I think Wendy at one point said that her employers were given a story about he working for fathers rights in return for drugs too.. I must have a look for that article.
