A Voice for Men boldly opposes respect for women

Hardly a controversial message, you wouldn't think.
Hardly a controversial message, you wouldn’t think.

If you live in New York state, you may have seen the poster above plastered on a bus shelter; or you may have seen it posted somewhere on the internet. The message is pretty simple, and it’s sad that it has to be said: kids are pretty impressionable, so teach your sons to treat women with basic respect.

The purpose of the ad campaign, sponsored by the New York state Office for the Prevention of Domestic Violence, is pretty clear as well: teaching boys respect for women lessens the chances that they will abuse women as adults.

Numerous studies have found that men with sexist attitudes towards women are more likely to try to control their wives or girlfriends with physical abuse. Indeed, one recent study even found that brief exposure to sexist jokes made men more inclined to brush off violence against women, at least amongst men with sexist attitudes to begin with.

Speaking of which, the sexist jokes over at A Voice for Men have unveiled a hilarious new “meme,” which just happens to be inspired by the “awaiting instructions” PSAs we’ve been discussing. And here it is:

From A Voice for Men. I've blurrred the women's faces.
From A Voice for Men. I’ve blurrred the women’s faces.

The logic here is airtight: because some women get drunk and urinate in public, women don’t deserve respect.

I guess men never get drunk and urinate in public, or ever do anything vaguely embarrassing that gets caught on camera?

Is it really asking too much to respect people as people, foibles and all?

What does an upper class Aussie accent sound like? Example?

Thanks. Wow, though, can’t say I like the speaker very much.

Upper class Australian? Sort of English – but not with the kind of class distinctions that the Brits themselves used.

The only detectable regional accents are fading recently – basically the easy air travel plus television started using “vernacular” rather than classically trained actors and BBC imitating newsreaders on the ABC plus the increasing population of non-British backgrounds. There used to be a quite detectable Queensland accent compared to everyone south of there. That’s where I thought the rising terminal eh came from – until I also heard it from NZedders. And some particular east coast versus SA, NT, WA – we used to remark on their pules and skules for our pools and schools.

Upper class? The biggest difference about SA/WA that east coast people remark on is our clahss, grahss, Frahnce, dahnce, photograrph, footparth, carstle in words where they use the flat ‘a’ of stand, pack and hat. And that often led to accusations that we were “up ourselves” meaning pretending to be upper class by some standard that they set and we didn’t really get. (Though we were also, in the past – pronounced pahst, guilty of sniffily claiming that South Australia wasn’t founded by convicts unlike ‘over there’. Since it’s become more shameful to have Rum Corps ancestors than convict ancestors, that’s subsided over the last 30 to 40 years.)

Oh heavens. The ugly Australian personified. Talk about the true daughter of a ghastly father.

And I’m not talking about her speaking voice.

I mock my boyfriend (from Melbourne) every time he pronounces castle with a short a.

RE: Kiwi Girl

I’m scratching my head over that one as NZers are well known for our “lazy vowels” (and high rising terminals, I’m soooooo guilty of that). In that, when we say “beer”, “bear”, and “bare”, they’re all pronounced “beer”.

Maybe it was a regional thing? All three of my housemates did it, and we were all in Welly at the time. But unless all three of them were having me on, they were pretty insistent on it.

I can tell various Southern accents apart in the USA, but I’m about useless for anything north of the Mason-Dixon line. I can tell Boston from New York though!

Outside my country… heh, forget about it. When living in Welly, I pretty much lost all ability to tell apart accents, even other US ones. I can USUALLY tell an Australian from a Brit by their vowels, if I’m paying attention, but a lot of the time, I’m not. And NZ from Aussie was kinda a lost cause.

I am the worst linguist. It is me.

Suicide is when you kill someone named Sue.

Fratricide is when you kill someone at a frat party.

Genocide is when you kill someone named Gene.

And parricide is when you kill a parrot.

Fuck you’re stupid… it’s not about “women get drunk and urinate in public.” The point is these women are pissing in front of ‘fathers4life.com.’ 9/10 fathers can’t see their children thanks to the great family courts we have!

how about a poster saying “respect your parents?” wouldn’t that show a boy to respect both men and women? why… it cause it doesn’t buy into the media making men out to be monsters (pedophiles, murders, rapist, etc..) hence why they only said “respect women.”

i love living in a matriarchy society where people are 2 dysfunctional to see the truth like the loser that visit this website!

The government want to keep the people of their society stupid so it’s easier for them to control!

If he’s what it looks like when people are 2 dysfunctional then I’d hate to see what happens if they’re 3 or 4 dysfunctional.

If you want to sell us on the notion that you are functional, you might want to try writing a comment that is somewhat coherent.

It’s always fun when they call you stupid, and then proceed to post a poorly reasoned and hideously punctuated mass of bad grammar.

I wonder what nine-tenths of a father looks like. Wait, that sounds gory. No I, don’t want to see that.
