The following ignorance was published in the Edmonton Sunday Sun
and represents the views of a prominent fascist Canadian of right-wing
persausions. It seems timely so I thought some of you might find
food for thought from it.
Violent Nature Normal For Boys
The real enemy, said the feminists of the 1960's, is man. Through
patriachy and patriarchal religion, he has enslaved the woman. Escaping
bondage means escaping man.
The real enemy, said the feminists of the 1970's and 80's, is the child.
The child is the means by which man enslaved woman. Escaping bondage,
therefore, means escaping the child.
The real enemy, say the feminists of the 90's, is nature itself.
Escaping bondage means changing nature.
The first endeavor, escaping man, was difficult though possible, and the
attack on the traditional family was the result of it.
The second, escaping the child, was even more difficult, and the demand
for easy access to abortion and state-reared children was the result.
The final goal, escaping nature, is plainly impossible, but the attempt
is nevertheless being made. We saw the latest Canadian instance of it last
week in the report of Quebec's SOW, meaning the province's Status of Women
Lobby. The "scourge of violence" against women, said an SOW report, has
now become so appalling that a "concerted, coherent and sustained" effort
must be launched against it.
They urged all the usual things - more shelters, a crackdown on
"harassment" under the human rights law rather than the Criminal Code
(because, of course, the commissions needn't bother with the traditional
protection afforded defendants), vigorous prosecution of husbands whose
wives accuse them of abuse, etc. But the main effort, said SOW, must be
directed at children. Sexual equality must be taught from pre-kindergarten
through high school.
Promoting non-violence must begin in day-care centres and "become an
integral part of education." Now how, you wonder, are you going to
"promote non-violence" among little boys? The problem is that, unlike
little girls, violence seems to be a part of their nature. Indeed, it's
part of the nature of all male animals.
Fighting with one another, physically challenging one another,
clobbering one another, is something nearly all little boys do, always
have done, and always will be prone to do. So how do you somehow abolish
The answer has always been that you separate the boys from the girls,
and you give the boys violent games to play, but always according to the
rules. "Playing the game" becomes an important moral imperative with them.
Bash, race, fight, yes, but always according to the rules.
They are also introduced to an ethic that is embraced by the sentence:
"Don't hit girls." They are taught from the beginning, that is, that girls
are different, and should be protected against the kind of violence of
which they know the male is altogether capable.
But the difficulty in all this for the feminists lies in the
segregation. They don't want the boys separated and directed into violent
pursuits that concur with their nature. They want both sexes treated
"equally" meaning the same. Nor do they want them taught to "protect" the
other sex because would mean that the other sex is inferior.
Rather, say the feminists, they must be kept with the girls, and raised
to abhor violence of all manner and kind.
And this, no doubt, is what we can soon expect to see unleashed within
the school system, which seems particularly vulnerable to feminist
So what will happen? Will little boys become more like little girls?
Will they stop playing with toy firearms and begin playing with toy babies
instead? Will they become "less violent?" No, they will not.
What they will do is become surly, rebellious, hard to control and
psychological mess. Soon they will be bashing worse than they ever have.
And as they grow older, rather than becoming less "violent," they will
become far more violent. More of them will become rapists and
What SOW will have accomplished, is profound and permanent damage to
thousands of children. That's because you can't change nature. But you can
pervert and corrupt nature. And when you do that, little boys can grow up
to become large monsters.
