In real life, and as mirrored in media images, boys and men are obsessed with death. Mary Daly referred to this obvious male preoccupation with death as “necrophilia,” meaning the love of death. Men’s necrophilic tendencies are not limited to literally sticking their dicks into corpses, although it includes that; necrophilia refers to men’s obsession with death and all things related to death and antithetical to life, including neglect and abuse, causing reproductive harm, rape, murder, torture, war, inflicting physical and emotional pain generally, and placing themselves and others in harm’s way in every way. Where women are interested in and indeed heavily invested in preserving and nurturing life, often because they have to, or face legal or social consequences if they fail, men are working very hard to undermine women’s efforts to nurture life at every turn.
Necrophilia supports male power.
Obviously, the power to take life or to cause extreme suffering is a form of power, and men embrace this power fully when they torture and kill animals, girls and women, and each other. Where boys and men are obsessed with death and creating destruction, women are left to perform damage control, utilizing all their time, energy and resources on mitigating the harm that men inflict; women are then left with few or no resources to use towards building a female-centered culture or to support our own interests. This diversion of women’s resources away from woman-centered and non-patriarchal ends is deliberate. The unusual man who is even slightly interested in nurturing or preserving life is the beneficiary of enormous false gratitude, but when women make a mistake or are unable to perform caretaking duties at a high level for any reason, we are severely punished by patriarchal institutions which place extreme controls on women’s lives and enforce our caretaking role with institutional violence, including incarceration. Of course, it is frequently men’s necrophilic actions such as PIV-centric sexuality creating unwanted or ambivalent children, or men harming themselves and others, that create the need for women’s usually unpaid, institutionally-unsupported caretaking labor in the first place, and opening the door to patriarchal institutional control over women’s lives. Granting men the power to open the door to institutional patriarchal control over women is critically important to and supportive of male power.

Seriously what the hell was that?

I'm a woman, and I have no idea what the fuck you're talking about.
If you continuously demonize whatever it is that you don't dislike, then you'll never be happy and at peace with those around you. Stop creating some paranoid delusion and join the rest of us here in this not so bad reality.

I once preserved and nurtured life. The damned mutt bit the mailman.

Yes, there are absolutely no macabre female horror nerds, like a number of my good friends.

I don't know where you are meeting the men in your life but let me assure you that you need to find a new venue.
The vast majority of men are not at all like that.
Honestly, that is one sad site.

I love how the wacky feminists like the one above and the MRAs despise each other yet essentially have the exact same world views, substituting male and female of course. They both strawman each other's genders, lie at the absolute extremities of their belief systems, and have an ability to come up with crazy new ways to hate men or women.

As a female necrophiliac (fantasies, not actually fucking corpses) do I ruin your stupid-ass argument?
6/9/2012 8:29:06 PM
Looking at the rest of that list, I'm surprised that I didn't see "Breathing supports male power." I almost think the second block down from the one posted here was more crazy. Then again, there's several metric tons of crazy on that page.

Shagging corpses helps the patriarchy?
Um...no, try getting a corpse barefoot and pregnant. The first part is easy...

"Ew- boys are icky and stinky. Girls are much better than horrible nasty rough boys". That's the level that we're at here; primary school.

What the holy hell? My dad is awesomely caring and nurturing, without that part of my life I can't imagine working necrophilia in there. It's like she's dumped the salt and pepper shakers of insanity.

Speaking as a necrophile I must say you are sorely mistaken as to what necrophilia is. I suggest you educate yourself with a viewing of Nekromantik.
6/10/2012 8:34:01 AM
You know... There are female necrophiliacs as well..
6/10/2012 8:40:16 AM
If you guys think this is crazy you should see their definition of male privilege. Apparently, car dealers just give away sports cars to every man and a guy can just pick a girl off the street and bang her just cause they're men and men get stuff for free. http://radicalhub.com/radfem-101/#entitlement
This just makes me think that every poster on that site is just a rich spoiled upperclass twit who has no real perspective on life or on how the food appears on their table.

Christ on a cracker, you just drank a whole bucket of crazy juice didn't you?

Man I better tell that goth chick back in high school that only men are supposed to be creepily obsessed with death.
@Tatch: The fuck? We can just do that? Hang on I'll be right back.
*@ Ferrari dealer* Bring me an Enzo. *Drops trow* I assume this is all the proof you need.
*Dealer calls police, I get tazed twenty times."
Ok that didn't work out so well. But there's still that thing about us being able to just pick any woman off the street and fuck her. I'll be right back. Again.
*huff* *huff* Hey did you guys know that female cops are allowed to go undercover as ordinary people? I mean it's weird. Doing all the things I should be allowed to do because of male privileged and the patriarchy just ends up getting me arrested. It's almost like there's no such thing at all and this person is bat-shit crazier then half the lunatics we usually get here.

You mean sadism. You're welcome.

The comfy first world kids will call this complete bullshit, I guess, but consider which gender kills the most and which takes up nursing professions or is usually "incarcerated" into child rearing.

Uhhhh... ok... I will have a huge serving of warrrrggarrbbllll and a poisonous word salad on the side with some bullshit dressing! YUM. :3
Stupid fear mongering lying c**t.
My hubby is as tame as a pussy cat and its not due to him being a beneficiary of enormous false gratitude it's just him being the natural loving caring person he is and was raised to be by his parents and grandparents. And guess what? I love that about him because
A it pisses you off
B it proves you wrong!

You know whats wrong with skyrim these days, everyone is obsessed with death.
6/12/2012 9:07:15 PM
You seem to spend a lot of your time thinking about violence and destruction.
6/13/2012 4:50:36 PM
The post is BS. She's claiming that ALL (or nearly all) males, engage in all of the things she describes, and that NO women do any of those things.
Both claims are absolutely & demonstrably false.
Furthermore, traditional gender roles - in which women raise children & men work/hunt/etc. - are eroding, and are largely the result of societal pressure in modern times, anyway.
