I just can't believe that this kid is mine. The shit that he links to, the stuff that comes out of his mouth, it's as if he absorbed nothing.

This is the latest steaming turd on his timeline, some whiny fucking victimology screed by a genuine Libtard 0[SUB]2 [/SUB]thief.

[h=3]The short of it...[/h] December 20, 2017
The short version of this story is that I am a privileged person: a highly educated white male, who has survived abuse at the hands of a self-identified fat, neuro-atypical, queer woman of Native American descent who had suffered immense trauma in her life. I am also a member of various social justice communities who identifies as a feminist, an anarchist, and a radical. I am choosing to be more public about surviving abuse because I believe that visibility matters. However, I also know that people like me are inconvenient survivors: there is not an easy way to understand and deal with those who have had social justice weaponized against them and who are privileged people who have been abused by the less advantaged.

I have no idea how to maintain the ethical imperatives of believing survivors and rightly privileging the voices of women, POC, LGBTQ+, and other minoritarian subjects while recognizing that there are some instances, such as mine, when the situation gets far more complicated and can be weaponized as a form of abuse and manipulation. I am writing this because I want people to know that this happens and to be aware that this is a part of our radical communities. I know men who live in terror of this happening (or happening again if it has; or continuing to happen if it is happening) to know that they are not alone. Dangerously, the loneliness that comes from such experiences may push men toward “men’s rights” communities, which are regressive, reactionary, and potentially fascist pseudo-movements of frightening misogynists and rape-apologists. We need to find alternatives for men who survive abuse if we want to offer something better. We need a place for those of us who are inconvenient survivors. I don’t know what that is though. I hope this post contributes to a conversation about figuring that the fuck out.
If this matters to you, I hope you will read "the long of it" to get the big picture. But first, I must be abundantly clear about something: this is not a "men's rights" page. Men's rights activists are an abhorrent group of misogynists, rape apologists, and fascists who should be rightly banished to the furthers recesses of the internet.

I love when the kids say "we don't like labels" but then proceed to throw out labels, letters and terms I've never heard before. I feel like I need a translator to talk them.

    I'm just getting a prime seat ready to watch for the day they let in enough of their Muslim "peace loving" buddies and "Undocumented freedom seeking immigrants" till their "friends" decide they have had enough of the useful idiots and don't need their "help" any more..... So much snacks to be eaten watching them get used to Muslim "Gender Identity" teachings HA!

    I see why your son did this.

    1. You came on SH to bitch and not confront him.

    ​​​​​​2. Your response is to stop reading his FB feed.

    You are getting the crop you sewed.

    I don't believe that's the case . Reality is that once our offspring get a taste 9f adult freedom they can sometimes run wild in the field of ideology . They are influenced by friends , and college and no matter how loud , long or hard we call them back home they are enjoying their freedom . Values and upbringing sometimes don't kick in until the troubles of adult life and freedom push back .
    The naivety of youth is at it's root a beautiful and untarnished thing . It would truly be great if we could unconditionally welcome and support everyone in the world . I did not watch the video or read other than the comments . Trying to keep the pressure on the backs of my eyes in check for Christmas .

    My last communication with my son was to tell him that I wasn't any too happy with some passive-aggressive, dumb-ass typical millenial shit that he pulled on me.

    Fuck you and the draft horse you rode in on, mister. I put blood, sweat, and tears into trying to raise him right, and for all my effort, I got a special snowflake out of it.

    Shit happens, and he's well beyond the point where I'm going to put any more spin on him to keep him from being a gutter ball.

    Honestly you have a smart indoctrinated millennial kid who hasn't had to grow up with a hard-knock life yet. He needs some good old fashioned life-lessons that will shake his liberal "white privileged life." The article reads like he swallowed hook, line, and sinker what the university professors told him he should feel. Too bad he hasn't used his intellect for a better purpose other than trying to portray his life as a victim. That is how you get extra points in liberal land - become a victim of whatever is bothering you for that moment.

    Veer, I think he actually has a lot of you in him based upon your writings on SH - he is smart, writes well, can communicate well; just in a different, albeit annoying way.

    The author of that tripe isn't my son. He simply linked to it in his FB feed. Frankly, my son couldn't write Dick and Jane material for Scott Foresman.

    Veer; The wife and I are in a similar boat. We have a 29 year old daughter. We’’re all in the greater Seattle area, but haven’t heard from her in a year. Comms prior to that were spotty, under the best of conditions. Finally gave up on trying to communicate with her. After no response to V/Ms, texts, e-mails, we’ve concluded it’s best to move on with our lives. We both worked very hard to provide for her and she grew up in a very good home. The basic, fundamental problem ? She was subjected to non stop liberal “education”. The wife and I are conservative fossils and it appears we are the enemy to her. We have gotten beyond the “being hurt” stage and for the most part, don’t feel much of anything towards her. We still love her, but it’s mostly love of the memories of when she was little. It’s kind of fucked, but you just have to do what you need to in order to move forward. The silver lining is that the wife and I appreciate each other just that much more. When your kids are being selfish little asshats, it brings the two of you closer.

    As far as your response to the other rude and obnoxious post ? Right on. If one doesn’t have a dog in the hunt, just shut the hell up and don’t go around shitting in other people’s messkits for no good reason.

    Happy holidays, wishing you the best.....

    Don't worry Veer, I thought it was pretty clearly spelled out in the OP that this wasn't authored by your boy.

    LOL this fucking guy.. "the social justice community has been weaponized against me! What do I do?!! I'm a SURVIVOR!" What a fuckin calamity. A cis-man(that means fruity/gay right?) in a relationship with a dyke squaw. I wonder how accepting his cis-booty was of her red skin strap-on...? Pathetic. I would pay to see someone like Jocko Willink get this dude on his podcast.

    Good for you and not trying to tell you how to raise a kid but don't give up on him yet.
    My two went completely off the rails for a while despite my guidance. Sometimes you just have to let them fail.
    One came back fairly quickly although not quickly enough for me. The other is still a little shaky. All in all I'm not unhappy with them. They both married, have decent jobs, did their school and gave me grandkids that are pretty cool. I wouldn't have bet on any of that ten years ago.
    The source of the quote is a little vague, whether Churchill or Edmund Burke. "If you're not a liberal in your 20s you have no heart. If you're not a conservative in your 30s you have no brain."
    FWIW, the guy that posted the FB post is just another vapid idiot screaming victimization when he knows nothing about it.

    In what's going to most likely be seriously misinterpreted or misunderstood "that this is humor to distract" from an otherwise angst thing.... no offense veer, clear?

    When i was in my educational stage, I had a professor Dr. C. Carter, affectionately known as Dr. CC, but Clarence to his friends, who taught us life coping strategy. Dr. Carter had some outstanding ideas.
    So, instead of being hide verbal cunning linguist, if perhaps you were to talk your mate into cunnilingus the following stroke wouldn't be bad at all, per Dr. Carter, and for a while, u might not give a shit about Facebook, or even looking at it, just sayin...

    I hope this brings a smile to some of you on this holiday eve...

    I know you dont but you cannot blame yourself. From your posts here, though a pain in the ass at times, I can tell you take your responsibilities seriously and did the best you possible could. I think youre that kind of individual. All yuo can do is be a strong stable light yourself and hope he in time sees it. And pray to the supreme, how ever yu conceive of him. Sometimes it just takes time and sometimes a bit to a lot of pain for them fo learn. It did for me though my digressions were certainly in a different direction.

    Many a 35 year old Conservative started out as a Liberal. If he works for a living, sooner or later, he'll learn.

    This is the absolute truth. For many the Socialist ideal sounds great until you have things of value that you will have to share with all of the goofs who do less than you. I was raised by soldiers and cops. The odds of me me ending up a liberal were slim.

    My 13 year old son was a liberal. He was raised in a methlab - a situation brought on him by the liberal feminism of the state.

    I did not try changing his beliefs all that fast. I just gave him this:

    http://www.oxfordtutorials.com/logical_fallacies.htm

    i told him every person who does any of these things is intellectually dishonest. In fact, these forms of intellectual dishonesty are so old most have Latin phraseology associated with them. Some people do not understand them well enough to know they are dishonest - but many do and use them anyway.

    i worry he became too conservative...

    I'm with Maggot on this: as parents we all do the best we can with what we've got. My two sons are home for the holidays (26 & 22) and after a day of picking up after them I mention " I won't charge you guys extra if you put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher..." The oldest one retorts "Here we go... You say the same thing everytime..." and I end it with "No shit sherlock: why do you suppose that is?"

    The author is one Edward Avery-Natale, a PhD in Sociology (wow, who'da thunk?) from, *SIGH*, Philadelphia.

    https://malesurvivorssjw.blogspot.com/2017/12/a-male-survivor.html

    "Eddie" is pretty much run-of-the-mill, mover target SJW standard Libtard issue, although a bit of an academic gypsy, peddling his crap here and there until he finds tenure.

    Looks to me like he preys on freshmen girls (and boys??) as well... POISON. Get's piercings to experience pain in his otherwise coddled life.

    Give him a rifle and put him on the front lines. Perhaps an additional piercing from enemy rifles will open his eyes.

    I'm with Maggot on this: as parents we all do the best we can with what we've got. My two sons are home for the holidays (26 & 22) and after a day of picking up after them I mention " I won't charge you guys extra if you put your dirty dishes in the dishwasher..." The oldest one retorts "Here we go... You say the same thing everytime..." and I end it with "No shit sherlock: why do you suppose that is?"

    You bring into this world, work like a dog to feed them and keep a roof over thier head, and hope like hell as adults they can cross the street without getting killed....

    great post, bud...

    Veer; The wife and I are in a similar boat. We have a 29 year old daughter. We’’re all in the greater Seattle area, but haven’t heard from her in a year. Comms prior to that were spotty, under the best of conditions. Finally gave up on trying to communicate with her. After no response to V/Ms, texts, e-mails, we’ve concluded it’s best to move on with our lives. We both worked very hard to provide for her and she grew up in a very good home. The basic, fundamental problem ? She was subjected to non stop liberal “education”. The wife and I are conservative fossils and it appears we are the enemy to her. We have gotten beyond the “being hurt” stage and for the most part, don’t feel much of anything towards her. We still love her, but it’s mostly love of the memories of when she was little. It’s kind of fucked, but you just have to do what you need to in order to move forward. The silver lining is that the wife and I appreciate each other just that much more. When your kids are being selfish little asshats, it brings the two of you closer.

    As far as your response to the other rude and obnoxious post ? Right on. If one doesn’t have a dog in the hunt, just shut the hell up and don’t go around shitting in other people’s messkits for no good reason.

    Happy holidays, wishing you the best.....

    Jesus.......

    That's one reason why my daughter has not and will not set foot in a public school. It's no guarantee but it does stack the odds in my favor.

    .....they only had five years to fuck with her head.

    And those were the worst five years (high school) they could have been given. Absolutely not criticizing your decisions, just making an accurate observation.

    You got that right. Although, she has always been smart. She has made (and continues to make) her own decisions. I do place at least 50% of the blame on her. I probably shouldn't have that attitude towards her, but I also refuse to be a victim. The door is always open for a relationship in the future, provided she puts forth some effort. But, I'm just not interested in one under the present conditions.
