Three at once!  Just look at their shock and surprise towards the end.  Their body language says it all. That was a great big red pill they ate!

I can't remember ever seeing or hearing something like this before.  I really gotta hand it to Matt O'Connor and F4J they did something I think might be a first in MSM history.  They went on TV, faced feminists, and actually called them LIARS!  Right to their face!  With the camera's running and the public watching.  This is great.  I hope it encourages many others to do the same. Please enjoy and then share:

Main / Feminist admits the wage gap is bunk!
Aug 31, 2013, 08:14 AM
I saw this on MR Reddit today and just had to share it. It's so delicious that we have to frame it for future use.  We all remember the feminist Hanna Rosin, and her nauseating misandric lecture, "The End of Men".  Well, it looks like she has offered us a gift that we can't just let spoil.  Here is a feminist saying that there is no wage gap based on discrimination, but rather the choices men and women make!  Make sure you all get screen shots while you can, pretty soon we are going to start hearing about how Rosin, "..is not really a feminist anymore...".  Enjoy!

The Gender Wage Gap Lie

You know that "women make 77 cents to every man's dollar" line you've heard a hundred times? It's not true.

By Hanna Rosin | Posted Friday, Aug. 30, 2013, at 12:49 PM

How many times have you heard that "women are paid 77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men"? Barack Obama said it during his last campaign. Women's groups say it every April 9, which is Equal Pay Day. In preparation for Labor Day, a group protesting outside Macy's this week repeated it, too, holding up signs and sending out press releases saying "women make $.77 to every dollar men make on the job." I've heard the line enough times that I feel the need to set the record straight: It's not true.

The official Bureau of Labor Department statistics show that the median earnings of full-time female workers is 77 percent of the median earnings of full-time male workers. But that is very different than "77 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men." The latter gives the impression that a man and a woman standing next to each other doing the same job for the same number of hours get paid different salaries. That's not at all the case. "Full time" officially means 35 hours, but men work more hours than women. That's the first problem: We could be comparing men working 40 hours to women working 35.

How to get a more accurate measure? First, instead of comparing annual wages, start by comparing average weekly wages. This is considered a slightly more accurate measure because it eliminates variables like time off during the year or annual bonuses (and yes, men get higher bonuses, but let's shelve that for a moment in our quest for a pure wage gap number). By this measure, women earn 81 percent of what men earn, although it varies widely by race. African-American women, for example, earn 94 percent of what African-American men earn in a typical week. Then, when you restrict the comparison to men and women working 40 hours a week, the gap narrows to 87 percent.

But we're still not close to measuring women "doing the same work as men." For that, we'd have to adjust for many other factors that go into determining salary. Economists Francine Blau and Lawrence Kahn did that in a recent paper, "The Gender Pay Gap."."They first accounted for education and experience. That didn't shift the gap very much, because women generally have at least as much and usually more education than men, and since the 1980s they have been gaining the experience. The fact that men are more likely to be in unions and have their salaries protected accounts for about 4 percent of the gap. The big differences are in occupation and industry. Women congregate in different professions than men do, and the largely male professions tend to be higher-paying. If you account for those differences, and then compare a woman and a man doing the same job, the pay gap narrows to 91 percent. So, you could accurately say in that Obama ad that, "women get paid 91 cents on the dollar for doing the same work as men."

The point here is not that there is no wage inequality. But by focusing our outrage into a tidy, misleading statistic we've missed the actual challenges. It would in fact be much simpler if the problem were rank sexism and all you had to do was enlighten the nation's bosses or throw the Equal Pay Act at them. But the 91 percent statistic suggests a much more complicated set of problems. Is it that women are choosing lower-paying professions or that our country values women's professions less? And why do women work fewer hours? Is this all discrimination or, as economist Claudia Goldin likes to say, also a result of "rational choices" women make about how they want to conduct their lives. 

Goldin and Lawrence Katz have done about as close to an apples-to-apples comparison of men's and women's wages as exists. (They talk about it here in a Freakonomics discussion.) They tracked male and female MBAs graduating from the University of Chicago from 1990 to 2006. First they controlled for previous job experience, GPA, chosen profession, business-school course and job title. Right out of school, they found only a tiny differential in salary between men and women, which might be because of a little bit of lingering discrimination or because women are worse at negotiating starting salaries. But 10 to 15 years later, the gap widens to 40 percent, almost all of which is due to career interruptions and fewer hours. The gap is even wider for women business school graduates who marry very high earners. (Note: Never marry a rich man).

If this midcareer gap is due to discrimination, it's much deeper than "male boss looks at female hire and decides she is worth less, and then pats her male colleague on the back and slips him a bonus." It's the deeper, more systemic discrimination of inadequate family-leave policies and childcare options, of women defaulting to being the caretakers. Or of women deciding that are suited to be nurses and teachers but not doctors. And in that more complicated discussion, you have to leave room at least for the option of choice--that women just don't want to work the same way men do.

Main / Please help Anti Misandry.com!
Apr 16, 2013, 10:51 AM
Hello all.  The owner of Anti Misandry.com is asking for help in the form of donations to cover the operating costs of the web site.  He usually does most of it on his own, but lately he has come under financial pressure and can no longer shoulder the burden  himself.  Anti Misandry. com is one of the most highly trafficked MRM websites on the internet.  Thousands upon thousands of readers visit it each day. If we lose it, we lose them as well.  The MRM cannot allow that to happen. If you can afford to do so, please give as much as you can.  Thank you.

Main / AntiMisandry is losing it creator!
Dec 22, 2012, 12:14 PM
For those who don't know, Karl Mathews, aka Marx, is the creator and owner of Anti-Misandry.com.  AM is one of the most frequently visited sites in the MRM, if my observations hold correct. Last night, he announced that he was stepping down from running the place.  This is terrible loss for the Men's Rights Movement!

Main / AVfM starts a new show this week!
Nov 12, 2012, 01:07 PM
As some of you may know, AVfM is debuting a new radio program this week.  It aims to
be a more lighthearted program than their other weekly shows. It's about analyzing entertainment from a red pill perspective.  While it runs the gamut from TV shows, to movies, video games, music and even comic books, all of the subject matter is on fictional works only.  Listeners are encouraged to share their thoughts and reviews of these works for discussion by the show hosts.  Please remember when doing so to give your website affiliation here at SYG in order to help grow this site and help bring the MRM together as a whole.

Greetings to you all.  Some of you may be familiar with Jade Michael.  He's a member of the MRM and is affiliated with Artistry Against Misandry and A Voice for Men.  Being a musician he's written songs for many of AVfM shows and has just released an album with MRM style lyrics.  Now not all the songs include the MRM theme, but one that did really got my attention.  It's called, "Regret This Song."  It's a story about what a man goes through after discovering his wife has suddenly decided to divorce him.  It's a country/western style ballad that gets down to the nitty gritty of life for men during and after divorce in the USA.  Please give it a listen and if you like it, share it with others. Think of it as way to spread the message of the MRM in a non-threatening sort of way.  We all want others to know about what men are going through, so they can help us. And this musical story just might be a great way to do it:

Hello everyone! As you all know, Mary Kellet is a low life feminist prosecutor.  She deliberately tried to ruin Vladek Filler with false charges and it blew up in her face.  Now, she is facing some serious charges of her own and is trying to put Mr. Filler behind bars during her disciplinary hearing in which he set to testify against her.  The implications of this action are staggering, she hopes to keep him quiet and possibly physically intimidate him as well in order to prevent him from the telling truth. A truth which could quite possibly result in the end of her career.  Naturally, after all that has transpired, the MRM would like to see Mr. Filler exonerated and Ms. Kellet held accountable.  To that end, I am asking anyone reading this message, lurker and member alike, to write to the one person that might able to stop this unthinkable act from going forward.  There is a reporter covering this case for a newspaper who can put enough public spotlight on this issue to stop it from happening.  The details, and a video outlining all of this in detail, follows below:

Corrupt Asst. District Attorney: Marry Kellett
