Feminism is the definition of sexism. It the female version of chauvinism and no less acceptable. You spout off about equality? How dare you, you dont want equality. All women do is try and fix problems for themselves, despite equality being an issue for everyone.
If you werent sexist you would be campaigning for equality and rights for all, not just your gender. Shame on you.
You do realize how powerless you are right?
Whenever a woman wants equality, they have to ask men to give it to them. It can be taken away at any time of our choosing and you can all be dominated again with ease, with women have no power to stop us. Tread carefully.
I hate men so much, and I'm a male myself. Only 5 percent of murders are committed by women, while 95 percent of murders are committed by men.
Also I'm pretty sure the gender statistics for murderers is most likely nearly the same statistic for how many men and women are rapists.
And also I'm pretty sure the gender statistics for murderers and rapists is most likely nearly the same statistic for how many men and women are domestic abusers.
Another reason why I hate men is because a lot of them are misogynists, and thus they are the reason why sexism exists.
Women generally have a more loving nature than men do, and they have more compassion. So that's why women are better than men are. So I think the world would be a better place without men.
For the past 50 years women have been saying, "A woman needs a man like a fish needs a bicycle," "I'm a strong independent woman who don't need no man," "Anything a man can do women can do...better," and "A woman has to work twice as hard as a man to get half the credit; fortunately it's easy." (((Katz))) needs to stop being a sexist and let womyn handle this.
Yeah, but what about when these "victims" were the ones who started the violence/abuse? Then after years of it the man snaps and becomes the abuser? The woman gets off free and wrapped up in cotton wool.
Fortified Mentality nobody is denying that men can be abused. What they are pointing out is that although men can be abused they very rarely are. That doesn’t mean they should be ignored however of course the issue of the majority needs to be addressed and will be addressed more.
Fandar, and that means that women aren't guilty of domestic abuse? Or that we should ignore the abused men "until" they respond in kind? Or that because men are physically stronger, that means that it's alright for women to be abusive, but not the men?
Good speech. I like how he said both men and women need to start working together instead of being in opposition. Much of what I see today regarding this issue is both sexes in opposition to one another.
The majority of these "monster men" were victims of abuse as kids. They are doing what was done to them. That's where we need to intervene and if we REALLY want to fix this problem then we would have to violate some rights of people. There are probably hundreds of thousands of kids locked away hidden that are being abused and that sickens me! I wish I could do something. I wish I was able to assist the cops in some way!!
Why are men so angry of women?! what did they ever do to you?! other then wanting to be treated as equally as men not as a second class citizens .
Women are not born to serve or be under men.
Iv giving up on men but this guy gave me some hope.
What a shame that women birth such a creature as men who hate us so. Men have built religions and gods, whole societies and cultures that outright attack women and promote femicide and mutilation - for centuries, globally. Then, because women finally accomplished some human rights recently, and call out the male BS, men hyperbolically feel like they are under assault by women, lol. They cry "gynocentrism!" Pathetic, weak, hysterical males.
That's one of the problems I have faced... The victim shaming. It makes me feel like I deserve it and that there is something wrong with me. The abusers weren't like that with me in the beginning, and they aren't like that around other people... It makes it hard to look for red flags when there weren't any there in the beginning, and it becomes incredibly confusing once they are present later.
I was hoping it was more focused on self improvement. Like if a man is abusive, how should such attitude be improved. However, I agree with his message that men need to help women to fight against abuse.
A woman in the UK stabbed her boyfriend in the back 13 times, and got a suspended sentence. A woman in Canada shot her boyfriend in the back six times, and claimed 20 years of domestic violence (for which there was no evidence whatsoever) to escape harsh sentencing. She got six months. A female medical student got a suspended sentence for attempted murder of her boyfriend because 'it would affect her career'. I can cite thousands of similar cases without even breaking a sweat. Women NEVER speak out against women who instigate or undertake violence against Men, and (like Men) make excuse after excuse for the woman doing so. I simply don't care what happens to women anymore, and more and more Men don't!
I have never blamed the victim and I have rarely met a man that does. All the people I am close to blame the abusers... In terms of shouting down domestic violence, never done that either. The only thing I've been critical of is assuming all men are oppressors/never victims and victimised hysteria...
In saying that, I do get his point, great lecture but possibly needs a 2018 update.
WWYD...violence in public men on women vs. women on men. Women are seen as the victim men are seen as deserving the abuse. Helping abused women in our society is actually quite healthy...this guy needs the red pill. Don't get me wrong, I hate violence towards women...and against men too.
In India i had never heard a new about any woman killing her husband. But today its quite common even in the villages, and in the next 25 years i think number of women prisoners will be more than male prisoners. Because in India woman is just an other word for jealous.
If women r not controlled, then the male's population will go down, there after terrorists will kill the remaining males, and women will be sold, abused, and will be used to produce the population of terrorists.
According to the police statistics in india, married men's suicide is much higher than the women.
AMEN!!! Caring is not enough!!! LEADERSHIP is what is needed in our communities and country. We owe it to ourselves to stand up for change. Being a public servant all of my life has shown me that we need a cultural shift in the direction towards respect for all. I wish everyone would simply begin by watching this and truly listen!!!! We can no longer simply wait for the world to change. It begins with each of us.
HowiGotCustody domestic abuse physically or mentally is WRONG and damaging regardless of which gender is committing the crime. Our children must be protected from it all. Being a single parent whether you are male or female is very difficult and single parents need support from the entire community to help make a difference. Your children are important and whoever is granted custody must realize what a beautiful gift you are receiving but also know that whenever you need help it's okay to ask for a little help from others without risking the loss of custody. Gender does not determine the best parent. Only a loving kind and patient heart is really the only qualifications. Being there for your child and protecting them from harm is the most important job one can ever have. Good luck and bless you for taking this position on with love and passion.
I beat my wife and daughters for years. I want to thank this man, Jackson Katz, for making me realize that I was wrong for doing so. I'm now in prison for the next 8-15 years, but this is worth it. Thank you!
It is gobsmackingly astounding to hear this endless rant, analysis, and lint examination about violence against women, yet you can find endless videos on YouTube by women and feminists defending women assaulting Men with almost savage physical violence, protesting Men fighting back, and these women defend it to their very core because women aren't as physically strong. It is these endless female hypocrisies that leads to Men quietly lauding women getting a 2 by 4 beating, and Men refusing to come to their assistance.
In Australia a male ran his ex off the road and beat her to death with a drain cover. Understandable outrage, endless violence against women statements from media and politicians. Then, also in Australia, a women ran over her ex, leaving with a packed suitcase, walking down the side of road, ran over him again to make sure he was dead. Not one comment about how terrible domestic violence against Men was. You could hear crickets. In Canada, a woman stabbed her boyfriend THIRTEEN times and got off with parole. Another woman shot her husband in the back six times, and got off the hook by claiming 20 plus years of domestic violence. My point is, STOP TELLING US THIS ISN'T MASSIVELY GENDER BIASED. That this is equality, that this not discriminatory? Stop treating Men like complete idiots! We are now clearly aware, through clearly researched facts that women instigate, perpetuate, and physically assault Men over 50% of the time now. Women should understand that unless YOU speak out against violence against Men, Men will continue to remain indifferent to women getting beaten to death.
Jackson - great vid. The only error is your comparison to whites and race, then correlating that analogy into "power and privilege" The denial of "whites" being a race is being promoted to try and dis-empower whites. The exact opposite. It is hurtful to whites. Also, diversity in white countries is very new, as we were primarily living only among ourselves for millenniums. In Japan we expect to see Japanese people in charge and running things, and it is unfair to call that power and privilege if they suddenly started to invite foreign people to come and live in Japan.
A lot of the commenters here didn't watch, or may not have comprehended the meaning of the video.
Nobody here (who understood the video) is suggesting that all men are abusers or that all women are victims. And just as anyone can choose to be an abuser, anyone can be a victim of abuse. This isn't a specifically gendered issue.
There are lots of great people in this world and they come in male, female, and anything in between or outside of the binary. Nobody is, or should ever be arguing that, because this isn't about dragging the good folks in any group of people down, it's about encouraging them to continue doing what they do to make the world a better place for everyone, as well as go a little beyond that to try and instill the desire in others to do the same.
It's about encouraging our leaders of all genders, sexes and orientations to speak up against all abuse and take action against it when the opportunity to do so arises.
Most importantly it's about the obligation of all people, regardless of anything, to try and work together to solve our society's problems, so that the people of the future will be able to live a better life, as all good human beings have done throughout history.
Changing the way a society thinks is a long and difficult task that nobody can do alone, and nobody is expecting you to. What this video means to say is that you should always try to be mindful of yourself, and be prepared to hold your peers accountable for harmful behaviour, as well as encourage the people around you to be /better/ than that. And, for men especially, we're going to need to let go of our pride in order to make that happen.
In the end, taking a closer look at and raising questions about the harmful aspects of masculine culture across the globe can only benefit /everyone/- because it's not only women who suffer for it.. And I can definitely say that I'd like to live in a world where all people are free to live without pressure to conform to harmful stereotypes. I want the world to be a better place- and to get there, we're all going to have to work together.. And I can get behind that.
