Vermischtes vom 6. Mai 2016

1. Der Gender-Hype versperrt den Blick auf die eigentlichen Probleme des Wissenschaftsbetriebs argumentiert Marcel Schütz in der ZEIT.

2. Gestern ist ein neues Presse-Interview mit Monika Ebeling erschienen: "Männer haben einfach keine Lobby" (Gut, die Lobby gibt es schon, aber unsere Leitmedien geben alles, um sie machtlos zu halten, indem sie nicht oder negativ darüber berichten).

3. Der Verein "Väter ohne Rechte" berichtet von einem Vortrag, den Johannes Meiners in Wien über Geschlechterpolitik für Männer gehalten hat. (Bei Gelegenheit müssten wir uns allerdings mal über für Online-Beiträge günstige und ungünstige Schriftarten unterhalten.)

4. Eine Aktivisten-Gruppe im US-Bundesstaat Colorado fordert, dass weiße, heterosexuelle Männer aufhören sollten, sich um öffentliche Ämter zu bewerben.

5. Der Comic-Autor Scott Adams ("Dilbert") hat sich die Überzeugungskraft der US-Präsidentschaftskandidaten Donald Trump und Hillary Clinton angesehen und prophezeit, dass am 8. November eine Rekordzahl von Männern für Trump stimmen wird. Trump attackiert derweil sexistische Sprüche Clintons. Und die Feminismuskritikerin Camille Paglia kommentiert:

Despite their show of bravado, most savvy Democratic strategists have surely known for months that Trump was by far the most formidable of Hillary Clinton’s potential opponents — which is why they’ve been playing the race and riot cards against him to the max. Hillary has skimmed along in her bouncing gender bubble, virtually untouched by her too chivalrous Democratic rivals. Far from Hillary (in this election cycle or the last) having a harder time as a woman candidate, she has been habitually shielded by her gender. At the early debates, for example, Martin O’Malley was paralyzed by his deference to her sacred womanhood and hardly dared raise his voice to contest her brazen untruths from three feet away. Meanwhile, in debate after debate, unconstrained by the sycophantic media moderators, Hillary rudely interrupted, talked over both O’Malley and Bernie Sanders, and hogged airtime like it was going out of style. Not until CNN’s April 14 debate in Brooklyn on the eve of the New York primary did moderators forcibly put a lid on Hillary’s obnoxious filibustering.

(...) And is there anything creepier than that current Hillary meme, the campaign slogan "I’m with her"? The blurred borderlines of those pronouns ("I" numbly dissolving into "her") and that ambiguous preposition ("with" her like a child, a lover, or a nurse’s aide with a geriatric patient?) are close to pathological. The Hillary acolytes are joined at the hip to "her", the Great Leader Who Needs No Name, the Maternal Tit daubed in wormwood, the bitter toxin left by men – those spoilers of the universe who created the master structures of modern civilization that provide us put-upon gals with jobs, transportation, abundant food, clean water, housing, electricity, and a magical disease-spurning municipal sewage system that only men seem required to clean and repair.

Hillary’s anti-male subtext, to which so many women voters are plainly drawn, flared into view last week when she crowed to CNN’s Jake Tapper about her proven skills in sex war: "I have a lot of experience dealing with men who sometimes get off the reservation in the way they behave and how they speak ... I’m not going to deal with their temper tantrums or their bullying or their efforts to try to provoke me." The prestige media tried to suppress Hillary’s gaffes here (which breezily insulted both men and Native Americans) by simply not reporting them. (...) The bloody Apache wars in Arizona were one of the darkest chapters in American history. But there you have Hillary’s gender theory in a nutshell: men are bums and bullies who belong in internment camps under female lock and key.
