Mary Daly, An Embarrassment To My Gender

In reading Bernard Goldberg's '100 People Who Are Screwing Up America' I ran across Mary Daly, a feminist activist. To quote the book:

Mary Daly, an important feminist academic, when asked what she thought of the idea (put forth by another feminist) that the male population should be reduced to cut down on violence, she responded: "I think it's not a bad idea at all. If life is to survive on the planet, there must be a decontamination of the Earth. I think this will be accompanied by an evolutionary process that will result in a drastic reduction of the population of males. People are afraid to say that kind of stuff anymore".

Did you hear that men? Ms. Daly believes that you no longer need to exist in mass numbers. That you are something that needs to be 'decontaminated'. That an evolutionary process needs to occur in order to cleanse our planet of the male gender.

Excuse me Ms. Daly, would you be including my husband in this idea of yours? Would you be including my three male offspring in this idea of yours? Please ma'am, just exactly who would you like to see exterminated?

"Attention men, if you are of coward heart please contact your local sperm bank so we can milk you; after that you will be gathered up with the rest of the testicular homosapiens where you will then be transferred to a containment camp. From that point we will separate you into groups based upon your level of violent tendencies. Those of you who are indeed violent will be transferred to an extermination camp, but the remaining men will be allowed to live out their natural lives in one of our many holding camps."

Feministas believe that the violent nature of men will eventually destroy mankind. What I find ironic with this theory is what the actual statistics show. Inner city violence most often occurs with young men who have been raised WITHOUT a father. Many criminals, whatever their crime, have been raised in the same situation. The presence of men is vital to a healthy upbringing for both genders. (No, I will not be jumping into successful single parenting, that's not what this is about.)

Her ideology is mostly based upon violent acts towards women caused by men. She also believes that the actions of war are brought on upon violent men. I'm going to take a blind step here and guess that she's anti-war. But if she's so adamant about ridding our planet of men it would seem the common sensical approach would be to indeed send them off to war. After all isn't it young men who are dying in mass numbers?

Ms. Daly, I love men. I especially love my man and the men we have created together. I love how men are willing to give their own lives to protect WOMEN from other men. I love how men are willing to sacrifice precious time from their families in order to support them. I love men who take pride in their home and their family. In all honesty Ms. Daly, I prefer men to women. What you see is what you get; how much more honest can one be than that? Of course there are deviations from that general idea, but that exist with women as well.

For centuries men have been saving women from men; and now women will have to save men from women. The full circle, hmmm.

Unbelievable. I can't believe any woman would say something so... stupid... Yep. Stupid. Can't think of a more appropriate word. Shortsighted? Shallow?

Do you think we as women married to wonderful men could start a movement to wipe out the feminazis off the planet? They are more a danger than any supposedly violent male. Speaking of which, after spending 15 years in law enforcement, no one sex is more violent than the other --

So men should be exterminated because of violent women who, obviously, are showing violent tendencies.

Do these people ever get tired of swallowing their own feet?

And an evolutionary process to lower the number of males? There can't be an evolutionary process if the males are gone. Oh wait, that's called extinction.

Someone give me a board to bang my head against. It's getting downright painful to hear about these idiots.

Oh girlfriends, I LOVE YOUR OPINIONS!!!! So correct.

Posted by: Stacy at August 22, 2005 03:18 PM

Substitute "blacks" or "gays" for "men" and see the furor it creates. Things like this initially make me just want to shake my head, but then I get furious. What absolutely irresponsible speech.

Remind me to have this boink regrooved this week. She needs it.

Posted by: bob at August 22, 2005 05:09 PM

She seems to have issues. I believe that with years of therapy, dating kind honest and able men, she may be returned to society as a viable human being.
But it's iffy.

Substitute "women" for "men" and see the furor it creates...

Daly is sick, literally. It's hate from people like her that will destroy the species, not the "violent nature" of men.

I believe that with years of therapy, dating kind honest and able men, she may be returned to society as a viable human being.

Do you think you can find a man who hates himself enough to date her? ;)

Until the fem-bitches learn to shoot, they'll remain out of power.

Well, then you've nothing to worry about. There's not a chance in hell that these women would ever handle a weapon. LOLOLOLOLOL

Sounds like a waste of an honest and able man to me...

One hell of a good book, eh?

I remember reading about her, thinking "what would happen if a man said that about women?" He would be beat down to snot. And rightly so.

Ken's gotta point. LOL

Teach-she really does have a gender discrimination problem,doesn't she?

"I believe that with years of therapy, dating kind honest and able men"

it's a good example of just how nice men are.

Stacey, "there you go again" with that handling weapon shaame.......

And where is the man that helped spawn her? Probably, in hiding.

"And where is the man that helped spawn her?"

Answer: Anonymous in a sperm bank.

Feministas believe that the violent nature of men will eventually destroy mankind.

The funny (?) thing is, I could show this woman study after study that shows that it's almost always the woman who throws the first punch in a domestic dispute (about 80% of the time). My own experience backs this up.

The problem is, men are usually bigger and stronger (gasp!) and when they retaliate, it usually does a lot more damage for the police to see. Guess who gets hauled to jail?

No, I never retaliated. I found that laughing at their puny blows had a much more satisfying effect. Besides, I was brought up to never hit a woman. So far, so good.

So what's going to happen when boys are finally feminized? Will they then be able to hit girls because they are now equals? Or do ya think that the old double standard may still be in effect?

The Exile: I'm shocked and appalled you'd suggest women were capable of such patriarchal violence! For shame! ;)

Posted by: ratan at August 24, 2005 10:44 PM

My poor men, so discriminated against.

Posted by: Stacy at August 25, 2005 12:21 PM

Not sure if this is permitted but here goes.

Someone explain how aborting one million plus babies a year is not violence.

If anything you ladies are worse than men.
Very few men could, with all their sadistic potential complete that act and live with it.

Doing it multiple times would steal part of our souls.

"People are afraid to say that kind of stuff anymore".

ANYMORE? When did they "used to" say it? Back when she was in "The Home," receiving electroshock therapy? Just another fringe lunatic. I'll try not to sweat this "threat" too much.

I have come to the same conclusion myself as Mary Daly - you guys have contaminated the earth with your aggression, cutting into it and women and all creatures for the sake of your bonding initiatives and so now we are at the brink of nuclear catastrophe with our neighbors...

I heard there was a decline in the birth of male babies, which was then confirmed by a book out on the subject, the theme being that because of male aggression men were dying out since the Y chromosome seemed to be destined for destruction, so now it seems men are slowly being weeded out, as they have now become the weed...endangering everyone else's food supply, soaking up all the excess water, invading other people's space and trying to take it over as their own - kind of what Rawls and Kant talk about in their philosophical vindication of rights, that only workds for men

hooray for Mary Daly!!!!!

the comments made above are referring to a natural evolutionary process, which is what Mary Daly was referring to - perhaps you should all brush up on your science and listen to Mother Nature, and you would also see the writing on the wall

and if you knew your history and prehistory, you would know that extinction is not a concern just because men would be in much smaller numbers, as it only takes one man to fertilize many women - and we also have the "Virgin birth" to hold to as some saving grace dont we?
