When I was in college, I spent the summers working for the local police department in the town I grew up in - a fairly popular beach resort.

We basically managed the jail, handling the intake, processing and release of prisoners on the overnight shift. The vast majority of prisoners were arrested and released in less than twelve hours, with the only exceptions being those who had committed serious crimes and would be sent to the county jail, or those who had an open warrant through another law enforcement agency.

In my time working there, I was “assaulted” (officially - to the point of charges being filed) the better part of ten times. Every single “perpetrator” (for lack of a better word) was female.

There is nothing - NOTHING - on planet Earth more obnoxious and entitled than a drunk woman.

Mind you, none of these “assaults” were particularly serious. I was never injured, nor was any blood ever spilled (a drunk, belligerent specimen of white trailer trash did do her level best, though, when she decided to use my inner thigh as a chew toy).

What struck me about these interactions was the complete, wanton lack of consideration or thought as to the potential consequences of their actions on the part of the women committing them. Their actions very deliberate, and almost reflexive.

In short, they were all way, WAY too comfortable putting their hands on people.

Of course, none of the charges ever amounted to anything. After the first occasion, where the charge was flatly dismissed by the presiding judge, I decided that it wasn’t worth my time to show up to court at 9 a.m. after getting off at 6 a.m. and having to be back at work at 6 p.m.

I’m not a drinker, so I can’t attest to the changes in behavior that come with heavy alcohol consumption, but I do think that there’s some level of merit to the notion of drunkenness and/or massive wealth revealing an individual’s true character. If that’s the case, some of these women may be irredeemable.

As an aside, on the subject of the police chief attempting to curb the release of these videos, there may not be anyone or anything more gynocentric than a “Girl Dad.” Granted, he may have other, unrelated motivations for this, but his statement certainly reads like someone who is more than a little afraid of his own daughter(s) appearing in one of these videos.

Of course, in the world of 2024, a DUI arrest video is hardly the most salacious thing a father has to worry about his daughter appearing in on the internet.

So many women being way too comfortable putting hands on people makes me sympathetic not only to you, but to any men who become romantically entangled with such women, and especially any children in their custody.

I don't agree with this.

It's a common opinion, that men are less catty because cattiness results in violence.

But I think men are less catty because men simply have less social and emotional aggression. I don't think it has anything to do with wielding death over others.

By this logic, guns, knives, pepper spray, should make women eschew their cattiness altogether, but this is not what happens.

I think women are just generally more emotionally machiavellian. You also overstate the strength of the average man. Men's average testosterone is down 50% from 100 yrs ago. Most men are fat and unhealthy. Most men cannot kill an adult male or female with one blow.

Men are not more socially and emotionally aggressive than women. Although, I suppose it depends how you define aggression.

Women immediately seek to define an in group and an outgroup in any social environment they are in. Women immediately make an us vs them. Men do not do this. Men don't form an in group/out group. Men just kind of all hang out together. In this way, women are more socially aggressive. They seek to ostracize more than men do, and they also engage in more character assassination and rumor spreading. Why is parental alienation something that only mothers do? Heightened social aggression.

They are also more emotionally aggressive. Women engage in pretty intense shaming techniques to get people to do what they want. Fake crying, playing victim, making someone feel guilt. All of these are forms of emotional aggression. Not to mention women are actually more violent in intimate relationships. Women are engage in greater vioent emotional outbursts counter to popular belief. They initiate 70% of DV, commit most of the child abuse, etc etc. Women commit all of the infanticide as well.

Mens aggression is more overt and up front than women's, but women have greater aggression than men in more covert ways, and sometimes even no covert ways. "Hell hath no fury like a woman scorned". Male competition is, like you stated, ritualized. Men's competition is upfront physically or verbally and it's goal oriented. Once the competition is over, it's over.

Men are actually studied to be more cooperative than women as well. Civilization is built off of male cooperation, which stems from men's lacking of the instinct to ostracize and character assassinate.

Women dont cooperate, they just leech off male cooperation.

Also, women don't eschew cattiness when they are able to wield death as well. They dont suddenly start showing more manly upfront, aggression. They remain set in their catty ways, even with a gun. Feminism wouldn't exist if guns got rid of the female desire to be catty.

Men are more violent towards men (not really towards women contrary to popular belief). However, I find this caricature of men to be vastly exagerrated. There's a degree of truth in it, but it's taken to the nth degree and makes men seem like hyperviolent rape hungry mongrels and, frankly, seems like an idea born out of the feminist movement as an excuse to engage in ostracizing and character assassinating men. It seems to stem from a victorian view of men as "brutes". And I just don't find that to be a complete picture of what men are really like.

I'll just add as well that I'm not aware of this genetic and archaeological evidence. In fact, I was under the impression that the agricultural revolution allowed the creation of bigger populations, and therefore bigger armies and more vast empire building.

Of course, it's true to a degree, but I'm skeptical that there is any archaeological evidence that shows men to be as violent/aggressive as described. Men did evolve to be prosocial animals, contrary to the popular belief that any prosocial behavior in men is learned, and that men are essentially innately all pyschopathic.

Janice, how could you? You know very well that those women are fragile and vulnerable girls and are made of sugar and spice and all things nice and would never do anything wrong and if they do it's never their fault and if it is they couldn't help it and if they could some man made them do it and even if no man made them do it it's all patriarchy anyway. Stop blaming women Janice; whatever it is, it's always men's fault and the channel owner is just perpetuating sexist tropes, or something.

I have actually been watching such videos for some time, in an attempt to better understand the source and nature of the aggrieved entitlement that many young women feel these days. I agree with you, Janice, that the reaction against these videos comes entirely from the exaggerated empathy and perceptions of victimhood that we bestow uniquely on women and not on men.

Essentially, feminism is an agglomeration of double standards, all of them echoing the nursery rhyme description of little girls being made of “sugar and spice, and all things nice.”

Showing females as they actually behave, because it runs counter to that narrative, has to be defined as evil, as sexual exploitation, and as misogynistic precisely because it is the truth. The combination of hypocrisy and gynocentrism is a stinking pile of lies, distortions, and deceptions.

The fact that cowardly men are unwilling to defend the truth, and eager to show how subservient to feminist cowshit they are, is one more example of true toxic masculinity, demonstrated by assuming that everything women say about themselves and men isn’t a tissue of lies, half-truths, and delusions.

Or is greater control of women an evolved feature of societies that have been civilized for a long time? The Middle East, China, and India are probably some of the oldest urban-commercial-literate regions on earth. I would bet on women having more freedom and respect almost anywhere in the world where written history is short.

In most primitive societies ( eg Hawaii, Papua, Yanomamo ) women didn't get more freedom and respect. One of the few exceptions are eurasian steppe pastoralists (scythians, mongols) where high status women were more respected before the spread of islam. Probably the legend of the amazons was based on scythian noblewomen carrying weapons, or at least being buried with weapons.

I agree. Females have a higher reproductive value than males. Pre-Neolithic revolution it helped humans to survive as a species to evolve gynocentric instincts into males, however in a post industrial modern society the instinct is redundant and needs to be countered with education.

In the 70s, I went to a primary school with a male headmaster. At the end of break times, girls could go straight inside from their playground whereas we boys had to line up outside in our playground until we were still and silent.

What's really interesting is that there used to be a program on one of Oprah Winfrey's cable networks called "The Bad Girls Club" that basically took a group of young ladies who were proud of such behavior put them all in a luxurious house in Hollywood, and televised the mayhem. Nobody complained that program was damaging to vulnerable women.

Police body cams were demanded by activists who believed that they would thus acquire video proof that police are racists, especially toward unarmed black males. Now that they're revealing that American police officers are some of the most patient, even-tempered and unflappable humans ever to exist, I figure it's a matter of time before police bodycams are demonized for showing the horrible behavior police endure every day.

"Keeping Up With the Kardashians" is an even more famous reality show. All members of the family, especially Kylie and Kendall, are worshipped by most teenage girls and young women for their (exaggeratedly plasticized) physiques. There was this one clip that went viral in which one of the sisters was going to jail for some DUI, and while driving in the car the matriarch Kris scolds her other daughter for taking selfies: "Stop taking pictures Kim, your sister's going to jail". The show is the intersection where Barbie style vanity meets trash culture and occasional criminality.

"They show what the culture denies: that women not only do bad things, but do them with a smile on their face and an apparent lack of shame." Yep. Fani Willis started off storming into the courtroom, holding up documents shouting "lies! lies!" in great dramatic defiance. Looks like they now have her dead to rights. The question remains if she is going to pay anything like the normal penalty for lying to the court. If not, expect the bad behavior to continue.

I suspect that the judge may wimp out in the Willis case. I think he is deeply afraid of her. Her performance in the courtroom shows that she is high on power, unashamed of her evident lies and unethical behavior, and full of fury against anyone who might try to hold her accountable.

"Showing that is not exactly a public service," I disagree, Janice. I think it's definitely a public service and meant to be. After all, in TV ads, on NetFlix, Hulu and essentially everywhere, we essentially never see a female figure who's anything but smart, clever, brave, accomplished, etc. And they are usually those things specifically in relation to male figures who are all but invariably the butt of the joke or the character whose sole purpose is to point up the woman's superiority. So yes, it's a public service to demonstrate the truth - that women have no monopoly on virtue, smarts or good behavior. Thanks as always for the fine work.

Roger that. I've been misfortunate in encountering many such catty, cruel, and vulgar female specimens throughout my middle and secondary school years. Most of these girls had no saving grace except for their beauty and popularity (although I don't consider the second one to even be an attribute), and were some of the basest, most mediocre, and two faced of tarts. I could write a novella purely on the topic of my 5th grade friendships with a group of girls who made the greater part of the year a living hell. The ringleader was the epitome of the aforementioned characteristics, and she was only 10. Not only was she constantly making fun of us (her favorite insult for me was "fat Katie", never mind me being thinner than her) but she was incredibly depraved and dirty minded. I will never forget how horrendous it was to hear her tell me she wanted to "suck the dick" of a classmate she had a crush on (I remember being so traumatized by having had this information imparted to me that I became paranoid and had many a sleepless night worrying that some covert microphones on the field would have recorded that conversation and the principal would have us expelled lol. Not yet having read 1984 I was already (senselessly, at least in the case of the microphone delusion) afraid of Big Brother surveillance techniques it seems.

For reasons unknown to me, YouTube recently started recommending to me these videos where unruly women on the verge of arrest are fighting with the police. I've watched several of them hoping that they are harbingers of a new era where women can be held accountable when they behave belligerently, show contempt for law enforcement, and proclaim themselves to be above the law. It shouldn't surprise me that the discussion would turn to the victimization of these women. Of course, one of the primary reasons for body cam footage was to protect law enforcement officers from false allegations of misconduct. It's bitingly ironic that feminism would now want to claim that these women--many of whom do shout "rape" and "sexual assault" even as the video shows that they are not being raped or sexually assaulted by the officer(s)--are being victimized when their criminality, including their attempts to make false accusations, is revealed to the public. Feminism has always wanted to have its cake and eat it, too; now it seems they also want to smash it in the face of anyone who violates the fundamental rule that women must always and only be portrayed as victims.

Notice the shaming language, "vulnerable young women", "exposing their criminal behaviour will cause them harm", "sexualisation", and "voyeurism".

Humans by their very nature are voyeuristic, gossiping is a form of voyeurism and women's magazines have it to fine art.

The attempts to prohibit the publication of body cam images of females either engaged in bad or criminal behaviour are I believe aimed at protecting the perception of female innocence by keeping these displays of behaviour out of the public sphere.

Yes, it's a surprisingly Victorian, paternalistic attitude towards women that feminists are happy to exploit when it suits them. Feminists have no qualms about hypocrisy, which is what makes them difficult to counter. One can only hope that over time feminism will become synonymous with hypocrisy as it becomes hopelessly entangled in its own contradictions and outright lies. The only trouble with that idea is that it assumes that young women are capable of independent critical thought. I'm not so sure that is true, judging by my daughter's female schoolfriends. I hope that young men have the good sense to shun them.

This reminds me of Lorena Bobbitt - the woman who cut off her husband's penis and threw it into a garbage disposal. Initially, media coverage (e.g., The View) treated the event like a joke and displayed zero sympathy for the victim. It was only after heavy criticism that pundits admitted the severity of the crime.

To be fair, Lorena claimed that her husband was raping her and the courts found her not guilty by way of "temporary insanity." Lorena herself mentioned the "battered woman syndrome" in a later interview, though the validity of that concept is dubious at best.

author

Many years ago, I did a video about Bobbitt. An Amazon Prime documentary at the time turned her into a feminist heroine, someone who claimed that cutting off her husband's penis and throwing it into a field was "an act of survival" because of her repeated rape trauma. It didn't matter that one witness at the trial alleged that Lorena simply wanted to punish John because he had been unfaithful. Her husband claimed she was always angry because he was unable to give her the lavish 'American Dream' lifestyle she wanted. She served only 45 days in a psychiatric hospital.

I clearly remember the conversations around the incident when it occurred; there was a great deal of sympathy for Lorena, none for her husband. There have since been a number of copy-cat crimes, often celebrated as acts of justified feminist revenge. "I Spit on Your Grave" (about a woman taking revenge on men for a gang rape, including by cutting off a man's penis) is a popular series of feminist revenge porn.

Just from looking at the photos of the two of them at their wedding, and knowing the opportunism and ambition of marrying him to come live with him in America, I can sense a smug satisfaction on her smiling face. Almost as if she was thinking: "I've snagged the man of my dreams and now I'm living the life of a princess in a fairytale with him fulfilling my every wish." I just read that her words to the police when arrested were: "He always have orgasm [sic], and he doesn't wait for me ever to have orgasm. He's selfish." Tell me, do those sound like the words of a traumatized victim of abuse? It looks to me as if she cut his penis off because she was mad about the fact he was not pleasing her sexually, not because of some heinous abuse.

The pioneer of the women/gender studies programs in the US, Sally Miller Gearhart, a lesbian feminist professor gave a talk with the title, "The Future-if there is one-is female." One of her points was this: "the population of men should be reduced to, and kept at, 10% of the world's population." She preferred eugenics and abortion as the means but I think the only reason she didn't suggest outright murder was the probable backlash. Of course, there wasn't much backlash: Mary Daly, another lesbian feminist professor called it "decontamination of the earth."

Today, if that policy was implemented, it would require the genocide of 3.5 billion men.

Those women/gender studies programs also teach "The SCUM Manifesto" by another lesbian feminist wannabe mass-murderer, Valerie Solanas. SCUM stands for Society for Cutting Up Men and actually discusses industrialized mass murder of men and boys.

Since I first heard of this case, I've been horrified by Lorena's actions. What makes it worse is that, since the 1960s, there have been so many efforts to inform young women about domestic violence (which all leave out the part that, for married couples, the rate of violence within the marriage is about 5%, with men and women equally participating), plus the creation of domestic violence shelters, special super-fast mechanisms for obtaining restraining orders with no evidence.

I can't for the life of me understand how a supposedly innocent and gentle woman can go the point of mutilating a man's genitals because he was abusing her. A gun shot is a different thing, but going to the completely unnecessary (what good is castration of a defense; you'd be better of escaping him) length of cutting off his member (with all the blood and gore and gruesomeness the act entails). I think any sane woman would consider that to be horrifying and disturbing, as I did. To be able to do something so grisly requires some kind of inner violence, inner densensitization akin to someone who does not feel much inside. The fact that she is celebrated in the media to this day, being featured on talk shows all dolled up with perfectly coiffed blonde hair, outwardly content and bearing no traces of trauma over her supposedly abusive ordeal is puzzling.

You're absolutely right. Even if Bobbitt's husband was as abusive as a man could be without killing a woman, she chose assault and mutilation over escape or police intervention. She truly is bloodthirsty in her own way.
