Most misogynist man Wellington

I'm not guaranteeing that J Sanders is the most misogynist person in Wellington. But I sure hope he is. This is his letter to the Dominion Post about the police rape trials, my comments are in italics:

Once again we read of someone (Letters, April 4) applying today's way of thinking - the political correctness - to the events of last century.

It's a way of thinking that has no logic or justice, let alone morality.

Why pick on the morals of men who just happen to be policemen?
Possibly because the police officers raped women.
What about the morality of teachers, doctors, bus drivers and politicians?
I hate rapists no matter what profession they are. I hate cop rapists, and teacher rapists, and doctor rapists, and bus driver rapists, and politicians rapists, and activist rapists. I hate men who rape.
What about that of women who never marry but have children, each by a different man, and of couples with children but not the guts to marry?
Of course consensual sex outside marriage is a far greater problem than rape.
Feminism changed women into sluts. By embracing feminism, women lost the right to judge the morality of men
To which I quote Pat Roberston, one of my favourite commentators on feminism: "The feminist agenda is not about equal rights for women. It is about a socialist, anti-family political movement that encourages women to leave their husbands, kill their children, practice witchcraft, destroy capitalism, and become lesbians."
It takes two to Tango
Given that the Tango is only ever performed consensually, it's not a particularly good metaphor for rape. Generally rape just takes one person.
Policemen are paid to deal with crime - nothing mroe nothing less. Instead of condemning the three men acquitted in the Louise Nicholas rape case, we should ask her to refund taxpayers the $14 million that was wasted because of the fantasies she has about her sexual deeds

We want our money back
This reminds me of the biblical law about getting raped in town. I guess it's a step forward that he wants to charge her, rather than stone her.

If you want to read something sane about rape check out The Maria Blog's post on a terrible advice column in the same paper.

    Sicko troglodytes are a sorry but minor fact of life.
    Seems the issue is, why did the DomPost consider this slab of excrement worthy of being printed?

  2. I like your favourite commentator on feminism, I think he's friends with mine, Peter Zohrab, guru of NZ fathers' rights movement, author of the book Sex, Lies and Feminism and involved with the horrific Men for Equal Rights Association. He says: Feminism is the state enforced ideology that gives women rights, men responsibilities and ruins the lives of children.

  3. Maria, how many men are in Men for Equal Rights Association? Peter Zohrab is no more spokesman for fathers than you or Maia are although I think unfortunately Maia has a bit bigger following than Peter Zohrab

  4. Unfortunately sicko troglodytes make great reading in the letters page - it's like NZ's answer to Jerry Springer. The Capital Times' letters page is usually two thirds filled up by the same two old trolls riffing on the theme of "in my day".

    Thankfully, Zohrab is in no way a spokesman for fathers as such. The Fathers' Rights movement is a different thing - a scary little subset of general antifeminism. At least none of the protestors about the Rickards/Schollum/ Shipton case picketed the lawyers' houses and scared their kids.

  5. Anyone who quotes Pat Roberston as an intelligent view on feminism can not be taken seriously in my opinion. Then again, the person's argument is completely silly anyway. Biut honestly

  6. That is FUCKING disgusting. How can someone actually think, let alone write that?
