Counter-Feminist presents a case

This is link to excellent (but long 1:37 h:m) compilation by now underground Counter-Feminist Christy0Misty (from I believe the rabidly infested blue/feminist state of Wisconsin).  She makes some excellent points - and ends with an remarkable challenge - and this was in 2009?


Another egregious example of False Allegations jails innocent man 19mths

This terrible injustice was covered in a San Diego CA newscast.

He was facing 35 years because of baseless claims made by a drug-addicted women who was actually 23 with 3 kids and was well known to police.

Official Feminists in Canada - blink

Official Feminists in Canada - blink

68% of Canadian women don’t call themselves a feminist

Of course - even those numbers don't seem right - except that the traditional readership of one of Canada's premiere magazine titles could have stated it smugly as "32% of Canadian Women reaffirm commitment to Feminism".  The actual title represents an effort to "jinn-up" their diminishing readership base and create an opportunity to prop-up that failing brand by repeating the feminist mantra - ad nausium.  Only a few years ago that figure was 20% (although that was from a properly represented sample and not one as self-selectively biased as Chatelaine).

But the cover - 40 almost exclusively white, middle-aged, middle-class women - gave it away - despite the accompanying video with primped and edgy avowels and a few honest, questioning souls.

No, this was a swan song "call to defend" the gynocentric ubercult - which seems finally to be finding itself under cultural siege - despite help from "the Dauphin" Trudeau.  His Chief of Staff'Katy Telfords solution to waning popularity?  Double-down!

More of us should call ourselves Feminists!

NS Dad ordered to pay one of largest Custody Awards ever

Mother wins $13.4 million in child support settlement from Nova Scotia developer after lengthy court battle.

Hard to tell exactly what precipitated such a large award - but clearly the Dad was not incented to litigate the case.  He decamped some time ago and appears negotiated with his Ex from the safety of a foreign country without an enforceable extradition treaty with Canada. 

And he was a millionaire. 

That helps.

Not sure I trust the rather biased article given most commentary was from Mom's lawyer.

What needs to asked is - does this kind of award indicate Canada is no better/worse than other international jurisdiction like London UK or Florida/California USA when it comes to insane child custody awards?

Fiamengo File: Repressive Tolerance and Safe Spaces

Women experience 3x Mental Illness as Men?

I recall this factoid from Louann Brizendine's book "The Female Brain" and it comes back to me whenever I read an account such as this...

Among the interesting clues she was crazy:  She decided to go Sky-Diving and have a Three-some with her Husband just before she decided to become a Callgirl.

Just in case your girlfriend suddenly picks up odd habits.


Courts micro-manage Family


Is this what we have become?

This is the kind of micro-managing that our Courts have fallen too then there is no hope for Canada.  My only question is if the parents will have to go all the way to the Supreme Court to succeed.

Where a sex-saturated culture leads

Michigan Court puts Zach Anderson was put on the sex offender list at age 19 after having sex with an underage girl. Now he is hoping to have his name removed from the registry.  h/t A Voice for Men

Here is excerpt of Indiana Criminal Code on Sexual Assault.

(a) A person at least eighteen (18) years of age who, with a child at least fourteen (14) years of age but less than sixteen (16) years of age, performs or submits to sexual intercourse or deviate sexual conduct commits sexual misconduct with a minor, a Class C felony. 

However, the offense is: (1) a Class B felony if it is committed by a person at least twenty-one (21) years of age; and (2) a Class A felony if it is committed by using or threatening the use of deadly force, if it is committed while armed with a deadly weapon, if it results in serious bodily injury, or if the commission of the offense is facilitated by furnishing the victim, without the victim's knowledge, with a drug (as defined in IC 16-42-19-2(1)) or a controlled substance (as defined in IC 35-48-1-9) or knowing that the victim was furnished with the drug or controlled substance without the victim's knowledge.
(b) A person at least eighteen (18) years of age who, with a child at least fourteen (14) years of age but less than sixteen (16) years of age, performs or submits to any fondling or touching, of either the child or the older person, with intent to arouse or to satisfy the sexual desires of either the child or the older person, commits sexual misconduct with a minor, a Class D felony.

However, the offense is: (1) a Class C felony if it is committed by a person at least twenty-one (21) years of age; and (2) a Class B felony if it is committed by using or threatening the use of deadly force, while armed with a deadly weapon, or if the commission of the offense is facilitated by furnishing the victim, without the victim's knowledge, with a drug (as defined in IC 16-42-19-2(1)) or a controlled substance (as defined in IC 35-48-1-9) or knowing that the victim was furnished with the drug or controlled substance without the victim's knowledge. (c) It is a defense that the accused person reasonably believed that the child was at least sixteen (16) years of age at the time of the conduct. 

However, this subsection does not apply to an offense described in subsection (a)(2) or (b)(2).


But - it was not his fault. She lied.  Does that matter?
Apparently not.

Just to make it clearer - here is a Feminist to explain the difference.

Hateful Feminist shows true colour

Prominent Feminist propagandaist Julie Blindel who writes for The Guardian Newspaper in the UK has shown her true colours towards the male gender in an interview Aug 29.

Upon being ask the question “Will heterosexuality survive women’s liberation”, Bindel responded as follows:
It won’t, not unless men get their act together, have their power taken from them and behave themselves. I mean, I would actually put them all in some kind of camp where they can all drive around in quad bikes, or bicycles, or white vans. I would give them a choice of vehicles to drive around with, give them no porn, they wouldn’t be able to fight – we would have wardens, of course! Women who want to see their sons or male loved ones would be able to go and visit, or take them out like a library book, and then bring them back.

I hope heterosexuality doesn’t survive, actually. I would like to see a truce on heterosexuality. I would like an amnesty on heterosexuality until we have sorted ourselves out. Because under patriarchy it’s shit.

And I am sick of hearing from individual women that their men are all right. Those men have been shored up by the advantages of patriarchy and they are complacent, they are not stopping other men from being shit.

I would love to see a women’s liberation that results in women turning away from men and saying: “when you come back as human beings, then we might look again.”
Just wow! "When you come back as human beings"?

Notable books

I saw that Katherine Young & Paul Nathanson will shortly be releasing the fourth in their "Misandry" series entitled:  Replacing Misandry - A Revolutionary History of Men.

I am eagerly waiting for it and requested the Public Library buy it as it is a noteworthy collection of academic work by Canadians.   I included them with Lionel Tiger and Steven Pinker - both born Canadians who have made great contributions to academe and even Men's Rights Issues.

(Pinker gave a famous defense of Laurence Summers firing from Harvard after making the not-remarkable statement that women were different from men.)

Last word on Rape Culture Debate - Ha!

In view of Jessica Valenti's attempt to squash the distribution of a debate on Rape Culture between her and Wendy McElroy at Brown University RI on Nov 19, 2014 - I am mirroring the event here. Apparently, Valenti promised to put hers up - but didn't*.

Another comment from Wendy McElroy - 3 rape myths that need sunlight.

* This I have noticed is a common feature of Feminists Events that has been well noted before - their tendency to strictly "control the Agenda" - indeed all discourse if possible.  A few years ago - I intended to record the speakers at a local Feminist Event (seductively entitled "Feminism and Men's Issues") with a small digital camera BUT the organizers stated at the outset that they did not want ANYONE to disturb the event and assured everyone that a full copy would be up on YouTube within a reasonable time.  To reinforce this they had security guards patrolling the Theatre. But they lied and there was never any video of the event released anywhere to my knowledge.

The benefit of this was they had full "plausible deniability" of anyone who disagreed or challenged their comments as false misrepresentations or as being misquoted/understood.  It completely shuts down any debate on the issues outside the tightly controlled venue to their advantage - and they LIKE it that way thank-you.   Lord help them if someone has well-constructed argument for them to consider - it might break their narrative.

Does this Execution make me look fat?

Following up on another example of feminist misandry I came across this writer Sam Allen - who scratches out her free-lance bile for a few publications - in particular this article about the menu choices of Executed Female Convicts and in particular Kelly Gissendaner - only the 16th women executed since the Death Penalty was re-instated in America in 1976.

Please note her degree - a Ph.D from Emory in Women's, Gender & Sexuality Studies under a George W. Woodruff Endowment Scholarship. Woodruff and his brother being Directors of one of Georgia's most well-known companies Coca-Cola Inc - the takeover of which was orchestrated by his father who ran Trust Company (now Sun Trust Bancshares).  Sam also received a John Money Fellowship for Scholars of Sexology from the *Kinsey Institute in Indiana University Bloomington.

Dr. John Money was the acknowledged inventor of perverted gender theory still promoted by the sex-obsessed Kinsey Institute that lead to the disastrous treatment of a young Canadian boy David Reimer from a botched circumcision in 1966.

* Here is another article that describes the highly questionable methods of Prof. Kinsey and his wierd influence in American culture.

A Feminist Lynch Mob

Just over 85 years ago on Aug 7, 1930 - two black men - Thomas Shipp and Abram Smith - were lynched and beaten to death in Marion IN for allegedly raping a white women.   The pair had been arrested the night before, charged with robbing and murdering a white factory worker, Claude Deeter, and raping his white girlfriend, Mary Ball, who was with him at the time. A large crowd broke into the jail with sledgehammers, pulled out the suspects, beat them and hung them. Police officers in the crowd cooperated in the lynching. Mary Ball later testified that she had not been raped and the rape charged were dropped.

In 1937 Abel Meeropol, a Jewish schoolteacher from New York and the adoptive father of the sons of Julius and Ethel Rosenberg, saw a copy of Beitler's 1930 photograph (above). Meeropol later said that the photograph "haunted me for days" and inspired his poem "Bitter Fruit". It was published in the New York Teacher in 1937. In 1939 it was performed, recorded and popularized by American singer Billie Holiday.[5] The song reached 16th place on the charts in July 1939, and has since been recorded by numerous artists, continuing into the 21st century.

Almost to the day (Aug 8) a speaker appeared in Montreal to speak about Men's Issues.  As soon as Feminists found out about his planned appearance they moved to have him banned and stopped!  The event in Montreal was infiltrated and a young women attempted to flirt with him until her Mangina White Knights friends could be alerted and show up to support her assault of Roosh V afterwards.

Here was Ezra Levant of Rebel.Media's interview:

Court Orders Treatment for Parental Alienation in Detroit

When three Bloomfield Hills kids, caught up in a bitter custody feud, refused to have lunch with their estranged father, a frustrated family court judge found them in contempt and sent them to detention, a move that made national headlines.
Now the judge is poised to try a new — and some say controversial — tack, ordering the family into a days-long intensive intervention, perhaps with live-in therapists.
Oakland County Family Court Judge Lisa Gorcyca is expected to order the Tsimhoni children, ages 14, 10 and 9, into a “reunification program” to help heal their relationship with their father, Omer Tsimhoni. He and the children’s mother, Maya Tsimhoni, divorced in 2011 and have been involved in vicious litigation since.
The intensive therapy is designed to treat “parental alienation,” a term coined 20 years ago by a family therapist who noticed some children displayed extreme behaviors in high-conflict divorces, developing unnatural aversions against one parent, the result of the other parent’s attempts to sabotage the relationship.

Robin Williams - Aug 11, 2014

Some of his great films (that I certainly enjoyed):
  • Good Morning Vietnam
  • Good Will Hunting
  • Patch Adams
  • Hook
  • Dead Poets Society
  • Fisher King
  • Mrs Doubtfire
  • Aladdin (cartoon)
  • Happy Feet (cartoon)
  • Hook
  • Robots (cartoon)
In addition to countless other comedy shows and appearances - like he did so often for the Military.

Stefan Molyneux asks why the media has not investigated link between Depression & Parkinsons Disease (which he had supposedly been given as a diagnosis) and discussed the link through SSRI drug treatment.  But here was his much more impressive memorial to this incredibly gifted and inspirational actor/comedian.

Bruce Hornsby tune "Lost Soul" in a compilation as a Robin Williams Tribute was very touching.

And here is what I understand was his last film - Boulevard - that Robin Williams had apparently finished around the time of his death.

Operation Jade Helm - groom civilians for Police State ops

Alex Jones was on this months ago - shocking grooming Operation Jade Helm begins in Southern U.S States today.  Now this is fully disclosed I expect a change in how this program is viewed and executed.  On the other hand the MSM will attempt to bury it.

In discussing this exercise with a pal of mine, he reminded me of an the 1964 movie "Seven Days in May" starring Kirk Douglas and Burt Lancaster that is about a Military Coup in America.

Furthermore Alex Jones correspondent John Whitehead explains a number of key terms to be aware of in the growing Police State apparatus we face.

Crass Obama supporter CodePink disrupts Republican Forum

Toxic Obama supporter Media Benjamin - self-styled leader of rad-feminist group CodePink - purposefully disrupted a Q&A forum where Republican Presidential hopeful - Sen. Lindsay Graham was speaking. After the mic was finally rested way from Media and Sen Graham graciously stating that in America such political disagreement is possible - the discussion continued.

Of course such a display would never have been allowed by the Obama camp

Alberta Attorney-General steps down over DV Charges

Last week a block buster announcement swept over the news during the Provincial Election Campaign.  The Provinces Attorney-General - Jonathon Denis - resigned from his post on Sat April 25 because he was due to appear in court over an un-specified charge.

All of this was news because the details were not spelled out and a publication ban was in place.  Even Premier Prentice - when asked about the resignation - would not provide any details except to claim it was a private matter.  Well during a Provincial Election Campaign that was not going to fly so it took the PC Party about a week to cut Denis lose.

After the publication ban was lifted, we all found-out that his former wife - Breanna Palmer - and he were having "marital problems" that led to her requesting an EPO (Emergency Protection Order) against him.

Here is Rebel.Media's excellent report on the issue.

Ivan Henry wins right to sue Crown for 27 yrs wrongful imprisonment

On Fri May 1, 2015 the Supreme Court ruled on the case of Ivan Henry wrongful imprisonment lawsuit.  He may proceed with suing the Crown prosecution for not disclosing many important facts that would have cast doubt on his sexual assault convictions in 1983.  The major question to be considered in this case was if this failure by the Crown prosecution was intentional and therefore malicious - or just negligent, incompetent or unintentional.

It is a point that has hamstrung many similar appeals in the past as the test for maliciousness is so high as to almost impossible to meet - given that one would practically require an email or video of the prosecution discussing, planning or knowingly executing ways to deny justice to the defendant. Of course such proof is virtually impossible to obtain without some very lucky breaks or terribly incompetent prosecutors (but one never knows how an opportunity will present itself).

This case is one on many that has been successfully brought forward over the years by the Canadian Association for the Wrongfully Convicted.

Memorable Quotes

François-Marie Arouet (November 211694 – May 301778), famous using his pen nameVoltaire, was a French writer, deist and philosopher.

One always speaks badly when one has nothing to say.
[On parle toujours mal quand on n'a rien à dire.]
"Commentaires sur Corneille, Oeuvres complètes de Voltaire (1827)."

It is dangerous to be right when the government is wrong.
[Il est dangereux d’avoir raison dans des choses où des hommes accrédités ont tort.]
"Catalogue pour la plupart des écrivains français qui ont paru dans Le Siècle de Louis XIV, pour servir à l'histoire littéraire de ce temps, Le Siècle de Louis XIV (1752)"

Those who can make you believe absurdities, can make you commit atrocities.
[Il y a eu des gens qui ont dit autrefois: Vous croyez des choses incompréhensibles, contradictoires, impossibles, parce que nous vous l’avons ordonné; faites donc des choses injustes parce que nous vous l’ordonnons. Ces gens-là raisonnaient à merveille. Certainement qui est en droit de vous rendre absurde est en droit de vous rendre injuste. Si vous n’opposez point aux ordres de croire l’impossible l’intelligence que Dieu a mise dans votre esprit, vous ne devez point opposer aux ordres de malfaire la justice que Dieu a mise dans votre coeur. Une faculté de votre âme étant une fois tyrannisée, toutes les autres facultés doivent l’être également. Et c’est là ce qui a produit tous les crimes religieux dont la terre a été inondée.]

Formerly there were those who said: You believe things that are incomprehensible, inconsistent, impossible because we have commanded you to believe them; go then and do what is unjust because we command it. Such people show admirable reasoning.Truly, whoever is able to make you absurd is able to make you unjust. If the God-given understanding of your mind does not resist a demand to believe what is impossible, then you will not resist a demand to do wrong to that God-given sense of justice in your heart. As soon as one faculty of your soul has been dominated, other faculties will follow as well. And from this derives all those crimes of religion which have overrun the world.
"Questions sur les miracles (1765)"

It is difficult to free fools from the chains they revere.
[Il est bien malaisé (puisqu’il faut enfin m’expliquer) d’ôter à des insensés des chaînes qu’ils révèrent.]  
"Le dîner du comte de Boulainvilliers (1767): Troisième Entretien."

If God did not exist, it would be necessary to invent him.
[Si Dieu n'existait pas, il faudrait l'inventer.]
"Épître à l'Auteur du Livre des Trois Imposteurs (10 November 1770)."

Virtue supposes liberty, as the carrying of a burden supposes active force. Under coercion there is no virtue, and without virtue there is no religion. Make a slave of me, and I shall be no better for it. Even the sovereign has no right to use coercion to lead men to religion, which by its nature supposes choice and liberty. My thought is no more subject to authority than is sickness or health.

[La vertu suppose la liberté, comme le transport d’un fardeau suppose la force active. Dans la contrainte point de vertu, et sans vertu point de religion. Rends-moi esclave, je n’en serai pas meilleur. Le souverain même n’a aucun droit d’employer la contrainte pour amener les hommes à la religion, qui suppose essentiellement choix et liberté. Ma pensée n’est pas plus soumise à l’autorité que la maladie ou la santé.]
"Canon Law: Ecclesiastical Ministry" (1771).

A revolution is an idea which has found its bayonets.
Napoleon Bonaparte.

Methods That Police Use on the Mentally Ill Are Madness

Via Carpe Diem blog at AEI:
Why do so many American cops believe that shooting a schizophrenic man dead for failing to drop a screwdriver is an acceptable outcome? In the disturbing and graphic video below, watch Dallas police officers use excessive deadly force to shoot and kill Jason Harrison, a black man with schizophrenia and bi-polar disorder, who was holding a small screwdriver. His mother has called the police for assistance getting her son Jason to the hospital because he was off his meds. Maybe they could have used a stun gun or pepper spray?

Boyhood is not a Pathololgy

The key to this wonderful ode to boyhood is action.   I believe this is a core attribute of maleness - young or old.

Recently I read this article "Is the ‘Female Way of Learning’ Destroying Boyhood?" in which she identifies 1990 when feminist Carol Gilligan identified boys as defective girls who needed to be changed - that the beginning of the end for boys was neigh.

For millions of years, males have been perfecting the art of “maleness,” and this maleness was considered throughout historical time to be extremely valuable to the functioning and maintenance of society (Stolzer, 2005). What are we to do now that, for the first time in the history of humankind, we have defined these ancient and uniquely male traits as pathological? The answer is that we have constructed a myriad of disorders (i.e., behavioral disorders, learning disabilities, and so on) that are currently rampant in the education system and in many instances require that male children use pharmaceutical drugs in order to alter their behavioral patterns so that they will conform to the scripts set forth by their female constituents (Stolzer, 2005). Ethical Human Psychology and Psychiatry, Volume 10, Number 2, 2008
Taking that incidence to its conclusion is feminism - including this (supposed) story that also popped up in Feb - a feminist bragging how happy she was that she had aborted her boy fetus.
Last week social media jumped on the story of a woman who supposedly decided to have a late-term abortion specifically because she found out she was having a boy. Based on a near-anonymous comment posted on an Internet forum, the story is highly questionable at best. Nevertheless, both pro- and anti-abortion advocates pounced on the missive.
If true - this is proof that we are - literally - creating another gendercide.

It another article this mother notes:
True to their own biological nature the boys talked a bit less, but hugged twice as much. The simple reality of gender (one that we often tend to ignore) is that what boys don’t express verbally they express physically, emotions being at the top of the list.
Women can have a three hour in-depth conversation about an issue that would inspire a man to sit, listen, absorb and respond with a hug and a “I’m sorry.” Depending on the situation it can be enough to drive a woman nuts. We dig words. Quite often, a man’s words are in his deeds. 
It’s a biological communication gap that contemporary feminism, with its disregard for biological gender cues, tends to ignore far too often at the peril of both boys and girls.
Again - it is actions that are important - not words.

Therapist Tom Golden has made a point of studying the grief process of men - and written about it in "The Way Men Heal" and "Swallowed by a Snake"

Freedom of Speech controversy erupts on a U.S campus

Last week I heard about this incident of a male student (Jerimiah True) being ejected from a University Humanities course by his Prof on account of his disruptive behavior over a debate about Rape/Sexual Assault in the U.S.

Here is image of student, Mr. True.  

And his Prof. Pancho Savery - at Reed University in Oregon.

True now says that despite Savery's strong support of Free Speech - he did not believe it what he debated but how he debated.

Children of Feminist Icons

I still recall reading about the shocking childhood of Rebecca Walker - who's mother Alice was a  prominent feminists icon & writer.

It would appear that this trend of child neglect/emotional abuse appears to be a recurring theme for Feminists and I point to AVFM contributor/commentator - Janet Bloomfield's article on the topic here.

A UK contemporary of US Abortion Movement founder Margaret Sangster was Marie Stopes. While not a strident advocate of abortions she was a strong supporter of birth control methods - and most controversially, Eugenics.  Her first marriage ended badly but by 1917 she had a son Harry - with second* husband Humphrey Roe in 1924.  Humphry Roe was a well known WW1 Flying Ace and Industrialist of A.V. Roe Aircraft - who were a primary supplier of aircraft to the UK Government in WW1.  Marie Stopes was also known to have a "strong personality" -which lead to the breaking of both husbands.  Her son - Harry - seems to have suffered continuously as a child from her feminist theories and general eccentricities.

This sad treatment continued even after Harry married Mary Eyre Wallis - daughter of noted engineer Barnes Wallis.  Marie did not favour this choice of bride as she feared that it introduced a genetic flaw of "nearsightedness" into their family line that would effect her grandchildren - and so she removed Harry from her will before her death in 1935.

Harry became an well-known advocate for the British Humanist Movement and indeed was still its Vice-President when he died in May 2014.

* Stope's first husband was rather surprisingly a Canadian Geneticist - Reginald Gates.

Ex-Premier Alison Redford reflects on her resignation 1 year ago

One year ago on March 19, 2014 - Alison Redford announced her resignation as Premier of Alberta - launching a leadership contest that will soon lead to a Provincial Election under new PC Alberta leader, Jim Prentice.

She gave an extensive interview to the Globe & Mail yesterday.

It seems that after 1 year self-reflections were accurate.  Although she did not say her gender was the reason for her people disliking her, she admitted to being "polarizing" and fact she had very little support at the start contributed to her failure.  Gender was not a factor except she felt that there was a double standard in her being a mother when it came to having her daughter accompany her on various trips around the province.

There has not (yet) been the critical feminist chorus as there was when former-Australian Prime Minister Julia Gillard was ousted.

International Parental Abductions

I recently read about this case that the CBC TV Investigative Team "Go Public" reported upon.

RCMP removed mom from plane, then let her go; Craig Johnstone blames them for loss of his child

Craig Johnstone distraught over police handling of alleged parental abduction

Here are some hilights from RCMP Child Abductions Study:
  • In 2005, there were 349 Canadian parental abduction incidents reported to Canadian police agencies; 157 of the parents had a custody order and 192 did not. Parents without a custody order abducted most often (Dalley, Reference Report 2005).
  • In 2014, there were 122 Parental Abductions. (Fast Facts 2014)

Catholic Deconstruction of Feminism

I can across this interview with Dawn Eden after reading an article she wrote in April 2008 entitled:

Eve of Deconstruction: Feminism and John Paul II by Dawn Eden.  

I encourage everyone to read it.

Here are some interviews with Dawn Eden about her two books, Thrill of the Chaste and My Peace I give You.

Theory of Cultural Collapse

Recently I read this post on the Return of Kings blog - The Theory of Cultural Collapse.

Bang on!

Most Western nations are looking at such a catastrophe and there appears to only be minor concern about it - we are facing a blue pill vs red pill moment if you will.

But - what can we do about it?

Here is the overview.

What Is A Cultural Collapse?

Cultural collapse is the decline, decay, or disappearance of a native population’s rituals, habits, interpersonal communication, relationships, art, and language. It coincides with a relative decline of population compared to outside groups. National identity and group identification will be lost while revisionist history will be applied to demonize or find fault with the native population. Cultural collapse is not to be confused with economic or state collapse. A nation that suffers from a cultural collapse can still be economically productive and have a working government.
First I will share a brief summary of the cultural collapse progression before explaining them in more detail. Then I will discuss where I see many countries along its path.

The Cultural Collapse Progression

1. Removal of religious narrative from people’s lives, replaced by a treadmill of scientific and technological “progress.”
2. Elimination of traditional sex roles through feminism, gender equality, political correctness, cultural Marxism, and socialism.
3. Delay or abstainment of family formation by women to pursue careerist lifestyles while men wait in confused limbo.
4. Decreasing birth rate among native population.
5. Government enactment of open immigration policies to prevent economic collapse.
6. Immigrant refusal to fully acclimate, forcing host culture to adopt external rituals and beliefs while being out-reproduced.
7. Natives becoming marginalized in their own country.
The details are on the blog here.

Ten + 9 years after

On Jan 25, 1996 Alberta QB Justice Joanne Veit issued her ruling on the case of Leilani Muir - marking the end of an unsavory era in Alberta history - the period of eugenic sterilization that began in 1928.  By 1928, forced sterilizations were performed in over 30 U.S States and various countries. Such eugenics programs suffered negative publicity during the post-WWII Nuremberg Trials and many such programs were abandoned throughout the free world after that - except for Alberta that continued until 1971.

Leilani herself was sterilized on Jan 19, 1959 at age 11 after being told (falsely) that she was undergoing an appendectomy that was needed.   Her mother had abandoned her as an unwanted burden to the Michener Institution for Mental Defectives in Red Deer - and due to a series of mis-communications by various doctors and bureaucrats, Leilani was never properly evaluated or tested.   Soon after she was sterilized it became clear to staff that she did not have below-average mental ability and that she was closer to normal than credited and could have been properly educated and integrated into society.

Leilani did not find out about her sterilization until she was unable to conceive during her first marriage.  This led her first marriage to fail and in her second marriage, attempts at adoption were sabotaged by false insinuations of child abuse due to her presence at the Michener Institution.

Here is the Wikipedia background noting that three of the "Famous Five Feminists" who advocated for the right of women to vote (Emily Murphy,  Henrietta Edwards and Louise McKinney) were also major proponents of this Alberta Government legislation to protect against "the scourge of moral laxity" promoted by "mental defectives", "male drunkeness", unwanted non-white immigration, "prostitutes" and other inferred moral criminals.  It should be well noted that it was the United Farmers of Alberta - (Brownlee Liberals) who designed and introduced this legislation and not the Social Credit Party (who under William Aberhart inherited a conservative mantle but with a unique brand of populist monetary theory and swept to power in the August 1935 Provincial Election). 

The Bill was sponsored and introduced by the then Minister of Agriculture and Health for Alberta, the Honourable George Hoadley.   During Second Reading of the Bill, Mr. Hoadley referred to the "need for the state to be protected from the menace which the propagation by the mentally diseased brings about" (Edmonton Journal, 1928a).  Likewise, during Third Reading of the Bill, Premier Brownlee is reported as stating that the Bill applied only to those who were a "menace to the community" (Edmonton Journal, 1928b).  During Second Reading, Mr. Hoadley stated that: 
"If it is quantity of production of the human race that is desired, then we don't need this Bill, but if we want quality, then it is a different matter" (Medicine Hat News, 1928)
Likewise, when the National Council of  Women passed a resolution in 1925 calling for the sterilization of mental defectives, the greatest support came from its members in Alberta and British Columbia. These included such prominent women as Nellie McClung and Emily Murphy, who were at the forefront of the campaign for eugenic sterilization in Alberta (Christian, 1974; McLaren, 1990). 
The same connection between sterilization laws, marriage laws, and the eugenics movement is evident in Alberta and British Columbia. A provision prohibiting a marriage where one party was "an idiot, insane or mentally incompetent" was first introduced in Alberta in 1925 (Solemnization of Marriage Act, S.A. 1925, c. 39, s. 29), only three years before the Sexual Sterilization Act. Likewise, a similar marriage prohibition was enacted in British Columbia in 1930, three years prior to that province's Sexual Sterilization Act (Robertson, 1994).
It was the perceived benefits to society, rather than the interests of the individual, which were the driving force behind the Act (Alberta Institute of Law Research and Reform, 1988; 1989).
Among the discredited academics involved in this case was Prof. John M. MacEachran who was founder of the Department of Philosophy and Psychology at the University of Alberta, and served as its first Head. He also served as the University of Alberta’s first Provost. He retired from the University in 1945, and died in 1971 at the age of 94.  He was Chair of the Provincial Alberta Eugenics Board from 1929 to 1965. 

Retrospectively - Prof. MacEachran was heavily criticized for how he handled a number of these decisions. It was noted that over 2800 sterilization decisions were made while the legislation was in force from 1928 - 1972 (44 years or 64/yr) and that each took 10 minutes on average.
One of the most dominant and recurrent themes of eugenics philosophy in the late 19th and early 20th century was the emphasis on this link between mental retardation and criminality, and the consequent "menace" which mental deficiency posed to society. For example, in his influential book published in 1914, Feeble-Mindedness; An Inquiry into its Nature and Consequences, Henry Goddard, a leading specialist in delinquency in the United States, emphasized the correlation between mental retardation and crime, noting that "the Moron ... is a menace to society and civilization ... he is responsible to a large degree for many, if not all of our social problems" (Linn & Bowers, 1978: 627). 
The link between feeblemindedness and crime, and the resulting "menace" to society was also very much alive and well in Canada in the early part of the 20th century. For example, E.W. McBride, the Strathcona Professor of Zoology at McGill University in the early 1900's and a leading proponent of eugenics in Canada, called for the weeding out of prostitutes, criminals and drunkards by means of sterilization. Similarly, the work of Carrie Derick, a professor of botany at McGill and a prominent Montreal feminist, purported to show a high degree of mental deficiency among criminals, which she concluded indicated the need for society to free itself of the "menacing shadow of the mental defective" (McLaren, 1990: 24). 
The same themes are evident in the work of Dr. Helen MacMurchy, a medical doctor and a government inspector of the feebleminded in Ontario from 1906 to 1916. Professor McLaren  describes MacMurchy as the "best-known Canadian defender" of the argument that sterilization was better than segregation as a way of dealing with the menace of feeblemindedness (McLaren, 1990:42). In one of her annual reports, MacMurchy concluded that mental defectives were responsible for up to 60% of society's alcoholics, 66% of its juvenile delinquents, 50% of its unmarried mothers, and possibly 97% of its prostitutes. She expressly endorsed the view originally coined by Henry Goddard, that "every mental defective is a potential criminal" (McLaren, 1990:40). This was also a favourite phrase of Emily Murphy in 1996 (CanLII 7287 (AB QB)) the many speeches which she gave throughout Alberta in the 1920's, espousing the benefits of eugenic sterilization (Christian, 1974).
The emphasis of eugenics philosophy on preventing criminal behaviour is also apparent from the famous judgment of Mr. Justice Holmes in Buck v. Bell, 274 U.S. 200 (1927), a decision of the United States Supreme Court upholding the constitutional validity of the sterilization laws of Virginia. In the words of Justice Holmes (at 207):
"It is better for all the world, if instead of waiting to execute degenerate offspring for crime, or to let them starve for their imbecility, society can prevent those who are manifestly unfit from continuing their kind. The principle that sustains compulsory vaccination is broad enough to cover cutting the Fallopian tubes ... Three generations of imbeciles are enough."
The Law Reform Commission of Canada described the decision in Buck v. Bell as having validated the "foundation of the eugenists' argument - the belief that mental illness, mental retardation and criminality are inherited" (Law Reform Commission of Canada, 1979: 26). Buck v. Bell unquestionably had an influence on the enactment of the sexual sterilization legislation in Alberta and British Columbia (Alberta Institute of Law Research and Reform, 1988).
The Suffragettes/Feminists including Murphy, Edwards and McKinney were also strong supporters of Liquor Prohibition that was introduced into Canada with support of the Christian Women's Temperance Union (CWTU) as Wartime Measures in 1916-17.

However once the soldiers returned from WWI, the end of formal prohibition was neigh and most  Provincial Liquor Controls Boards were established by 1924.  But a booming trade in illicit, cross-boarder "rum-running" to our American friends took up the slack until U.S Prohibition finally ended in Dec 1933.
