Are We Not Men?
by Patrick K Martin

Exclusive to TLE

"If you prick us, do we not bleed? If you tickle us, do we not laugh? If you poison us, do we not die? And if you wrong us, shall we not revenge?" -- The Merchant of Venice, by William Shakespeare

Well the Supreme Court has done it again, in a case against a deadbeat dad with nine children and $25Gs in back child support, the court has returned, without comment, a ruling which will see him thrown in jail if he should father another child. Now, forgetting the fact that this industrial-grade sperm-donor is nothing but your run-of-the-mill scum-bag who lacks the guts to take responsibility for his offspring, or the intelligence to use contraception. The fact remains that we have here one more example of the state asserting its right to determine the course of our lives. It's bad enough that the state will enslave a man for 18 years because he fathered a child, despite the fact that the decision to bear the child is made without his consent. Now we are informed that the state may now incarcerate us for impregnating the woman in the first place. What is next, compulsory sterilization?

When did men become second-class citizens? At what point did our lives become the playthings of any woman we happen to come in contact with? Let me see if I have this straight, if you look at a woman, or heaven forbid, speak to her, she can charge you with sexual harassment. If she goes to bed with you, she can change her mind about it later and charge you with rape. Assuming you checked her I.D. to determine that she is, in fact over the age of consent (although the parents can still charge you with rape if she is over the age of consent, but under the age of majority). If she gets pregnant, no matter what efforts you took to avoid that outcome, she, and she ALONE, decides whether or not the child will be carried to term (subject to change at any point almost up to the point of actual delivery) or aborted. If she aborts, she can sue you for mental anguish (I haven't heard of it yet, but it's coming), and if she delivers, you're on the hook for eighteen years, even if you find out later that it's really not your child. Let us not forget also that the state will decide what you can pay for the privilege of seeing your child on some bullshit schedule decided by the state. And now the state will decide if and when you have had too many kids and/or how many you can support.

When are we going to say enough is enough? When are we going to stand up against the femi-nazi crowd and their pet politicians? When are we men, REAL MEN, going to refuse to be tarred with a brush wielded by women who refuse to accept the responsibility for what THEY do with their bodies? I refuse to accept that women are helpless victims of our male dominated society. Women are supposed to be liberated aren't they? They insist on being treated just like men, so when the Hell are they going to take on the same responsibilities? When are we going to stand up and say, "If you don't want to worry about some bum knocking you up, close your damn legs!" I for one am damn sick and tired of listening to the whining about the need for men to take responsibility from a bunch of self-centered sluts who are getting more action than my hand did in high school.

It's time we started acting like men again, and it's time for the real women in this world to start supporting us. You women out there, you real women who want real men, men who act like something better than biker-trash, who will treat you with respect, and who view you as something other than a handy receptacle for lust and bodily fluids, you need to get off of your butts and help us regain the rights we deserve. I know you are out there, I know you don't like the tramps who give you a bad name, and your neighborhood a new pack of screaming banshies, because they feel that their sex lives should resemble something out of Wild Kingdom. You are the ones who are hurt the most by the irresponsible actions of your sisters, because you are the ones who get smeared in the eyes of the men hurt by these bitches. You are the ones who fail to find good men because they have been crushed by these insensitive, uncaring harlots who think they have a right to shit on men, just because.

The day is coming when one of two things will happen. Either men of goodwill will stand up for their rights with good women right beside them, or women will find out what the world will be like run by the male animals that they are breeding. Regardless, men will one day reach down and find out that they have a pair, the question is, what will they do about it?
