Heres what one of the greatest linguist, paradigm architects of the century has to say about the current state of women-as-victim propaganda..and the lace curtain against male friendly media attention!!
<b>"Our hypothesis is that worthy victims will be featured prominently and dramatically, that they will be humanized, and that their victimization will receive the detail and context in story construction that will generate reader interest and sympathetic emotions. In contrast, unworthy victims will merit only slight detail, minimal humanization, and little context that will excite and enrage."</b>
—E. S. Herman and N. Chomsky, Manufacturing Consent:1
I know Ian can disagree with me, but with Noam Chomsky.........?!?!?!?!
What do i have to say? (I have mostly cut and pasted).......I simply say that men (and boys) have become the designated 'unworthy victims' that chompsky refers to........
Dissident Domestic Violence Experts Announce Ground-Breaking Conference: 'From Ideology to Inclusion'
As I've noted on many occasions, <b>the domestic violence establishment is not telling us the full truth about domestic violence, and many destructive family law and criminal law policies have been based on misinformation. </b>
Research clearly establishes that <b>women are frequently the aggressors in domestic combat, often employing the element of surprise and weapons to compensate for men's strength. Yet arrest and prosecution policies are stacked against men, as is the public dialogue on this important issue. Perhaps worst of all, misguided women's groups' distortion of the domestic violence issue has been the leading impediment to passing shared parenting legislation.</b>
"The founding members of NFVLRC have recognized for some time that <b>current polices are politically driven rather being based on scientifically sound information, and are seeking to change them. As a result of flawed policies, many children are being denied the same range of services simply because of their victimized parent's gender.</b> Current policies have in many instances also resulted in a loss of civil liberties, and research indicates that they have sometimes resulted in increased danger to victims...NFVLRC believes that unless domestic and family violence policies are reformed, victims, children and future generations will continue to suffer from this social problem."
<b>Last year over 50 of these authorities signed a letter urging the California legislature to stop the state's policy of excluding male victims and their children from domestic violence services. </b>

"It should be pointed out that <b>the National Violence Against Women Survey was designed, conducted and analyzed by feminist researchers, </b>whose intentions from start to finish were to make the case that violence against female intimate partners is a serious social problem, and one that is much more serious than violence against male intimate partners. This, I believe, lends quite a bit of added credibility to Felson's findings."
