Get Involved with Take Back the Night 2010

It's a brand new year, and if one of your resolutions is to get more involved in Calgary's feminist community, then this is your opportunity!
Take Back the Night is an annual event where women (and men) take to the streets and protest violence against women. Last year Calgary's event was organized by a grassroots group of local feminists. If you are interested in being a part of the 2010 planning committee, please visit Calgary's official Take Back The Night website.


  1. I would love to come on your radio show, here are my views -

    The Pill and Feminism's Future -

    Part 1 of 2
    The Rise of Feminism/Female Domination

    Dec 2009

    The Male Contraceptive Pill; and implications For Men -

    The male pill is on it’s way, and will be with us in less than 5 years, if not from the US or Britain, then from China and India.

    The pill for men will be the biggest step for freedom that men have ever had - freedom from the serfdom imposed by fatherhood. So if the present tyrannical feminist British women want their babies, they will have to offer a far better deal to men than at present.

    For example -

    The present marriage laws, and the infamous and secret ‘family courts’ will have to go, and quickly, and the dictatorial marriage and ‘common law’ marriage expectations drastically changed.
    The constant demeaning of masculinity, particularly on TV in programs such as ‘One Foot in the Grave’, ‘Men Behaving Badly’ and the present ‘soaps’ in general, where men habitually behave in an infantile manner, and are presented in an appalling way, will have to be recognised as highly offensive to men, and dispensed with.
    The most powerful of the British feminist weapons - the wild and malicious accusations of ‘rape’ and ‘child sex’ - will have to be brought back under civilized law where the accuser will be required to have hard evidence and be held responsible for their actions, both in the making of the accusation, and their part in the incident. The male sex drive is an extremely powerful force, and a woman who provokes it to the point where a man loses his self-control that woman must accept some of the blame. The accused will have to be considered innocent until - and if - proven guilty.

    The Rise of Woman's Dominance -

    As far as I know never before in human history has woman obtained such a dominant position in society, and I have puzzled over this for many years. To reason this out I considered that the dominance must coincide with a recent new event, and the rise of science is the most noticeable over the last 100 years.

    It seems that the science events most effecting women’s position in society are the invention of domestic labour saving devices - making the ‘housewife’ redundant, the invention of mechanised work equipment - making the ‘male upper body’ strength requirement redundant in the workplace, and - most significantly - the invention of the female contraception pill which gave a woman political power over men by either withholding sex, which she has always been able to do, or rewarding with sex, which for the fear of unwanted pregnancy, she has never been able to do before. It should be noted that recent social science research has found that giving rewards has far more impact on behaviour than giving punishments, which soon lose their effects altogether.

    The female contraceptive pill in the 1960s Britain gave British women direct power over sex availability without fear of pregnancy for the first time in human history. There was a popular phrase in the 1960s - 'free love', but there was nothing 'free' about the 'free love' of the 1960s. It came at a price, a price controlled and set by women who seized upon this new 'pillow power' with vigour; and some have used this power - unwisely - to disadvantage men in every way possible, thus asserting a position of dominance over men in which she has reduced them to a level of disadvantaged cowed subservience - and infantile behaviour in an attempt to present themselves as children entitled to the protection of the maternal instinct.

    The ‘Mad Maternal Instinct’ - the all powerful evolutionary force in women that regards masculine Men as simple mating objects when in lust, and when not, as dangerous predators to be avoided or driven off and away from the precious family group.

    The Decline of Dominance and Re-establishment of Equality -

    The timing of the 1960’s pill and ten years later, the recognition of the feminist movement is an incident that supports the view that they are connected in a cause and effect relationship, but via a third factor.

    I would argue that the dominance by women is not a result of feminism, but of the 1960’s pill. Feminism developed out of this dominance. Once the dominance is removed, feminism will dwindle and demise.

    The 1960’s pill does give an advantage and dominance via the reward of sex to men. But with an equivalent male contraceptive pill, men can make it quite clear that they are not prepared to have children unless they want to, and are offered a satisfactory position in the family group and society - enforced by law. This would equalise the woman’s power over men’s sex drive with the man’s power over the maternal instinct; and the need to breed. Hence the counter balancing of the power given to women - ironically by male scientists! - by the 1960’s female contraceptive pill.

    Once the power of the 1960s female pill is counterbalanced - equalized - by the male pill this yoke of female dominance is likely to be flung off with surprising speed, and retribution and revenge on the British feminist female - and feminist male - is likely to be wreaked, as some wiser and more sensible women have been aware of for some time.

    I am very surprised that a social event on par with the 1960s social revolution is within a few years, and the media and people in general have not noticed. I do not intent to attack women in general, but simply to describe - what appears to me - to be in the future.

    It appears to me that the combination of -

    1 a general grass roots resistance and resentment by modern men to the belligerents and unfairness of feminism,

    2 the coming worsening economic decline and worsening male unemployment,

    3 the problems of over population,

    4 and the balancing of the 1960s female pill with an equivalent male pill

    will result in a complete reversal of the present situation and the subjugation of western women into exploited work units with little or no rights at all - and given their attitude to Men over the last fifty years, I would have little sympathy for them; and I doubt if many Men would.

    Today belongs to feminism, but tomorrow belongs to Men.
