January 29, 2012

A growing number of commentators are now describing the movement to end domestic violence as hateful:

1. “[I]t seemed alarming that feminists could potentially abuse their role as providers of refuge for the vulnerable and damaged people because of an agenda to bolster a movement born out of hatred of half of the human race.” – Erin Pizzey: This Way to the Revolution: A Memoir. Chicago: Peter Owen Publishers. 2011. Page 106.

2. “The Verizon Foundation’s [Monsters video] ad encourages hatred of men.” – Barbara Kay: A New Front Opens in the Hate Campaign against Men, December 6, 2011. http://fullcomment.nationalpost.com/2011/12/06/barbara-kay-a-new-front-opens-in-the-hate-campaign-against-men/

3. “Each year the federal government spends $84 million on domestic violence education and training programs that spew flawed statistics, one-sided claims, and undeserved stereotypes. It’s time we stop the misinformation and hate.” – Carey Roberts: Violence Against Women Act Must Stop the Hateful Stereotypes. August 15, 2011. http://www.renewamerica.com/columns/roberts/110815

4. “VAWA funds the re-education of judges and law enforcement personnel to teach them feminist stereotypes about male abusers and female victims.” – Phyllis Schlafly: Time to Defund Feminist Pork — the Hate-Men Law, October 2005. http://www.eagleforum.org/psr/2005/oct05/psroct05.html
