Good mangina project says men should be punching bags for toxic women


Good Men Project takes down controversial post regarding male victims of DV

The Good Men Project, a publication that ostensibly focuses on the interests of men, took down a highly controversial post on August 25 titled, “When Girls Attack” which instructs men on the receiving end of violent attacks from women to absorb the abuse and “find their inner gentlemen.”

A . link to a .pdf copy of the article has been supplied to us from an outside source and can be downloaded here.

“If inappropriate behavior is continually received you have to handle it.  We are adults and whilst we don’t always act our best, mature conversations when things are not always quite right are what we need to strive for whether it is in the workplace, home or social setting” reads the article written by  TaLisa, a Tasmanian blogger and contributor to the Good Men Project. “Manipulative or snide comment behavior needs to be confronted with a calm approach.”

The article was heavily criticized by Men’s Rights Activists and also prompted scorn from feminists on the FeMRADebates subreddit where a heated discussion thread was posted about it.  Even readers of the GMP itself spoke out against the idea of holding men responsible for the bad behavior of their partners and advising them to maintain abusive relationships.  “I’m sorry but if she is punching you she is a violent douche bag and needs to be dropped like a hot potato….after you call the police on her,” said the very first response in the comment section of the article.   “Violence is never ok and no man should ever put up with it just because it’s coming from a woman.”

While the Good Men Project did not say why it pulled the article, there is speculation that it was due to an extremely bad reception from readers.

“It speaks well, somewhat, of The Good Men Project, that they were smart enough to pull this article” said Dean Esmay, Managing Editor for AVfM.  “It speaks volumes about their hateful misandrist agenda that they published it in the first place.”

“I am not surprised” said Paul Elam,  AVfM’s publisher.  “Despite touting themselves as a publication about and for men, GMP regularly urges men to remain silent about their own pain and the abuses they experience. This time, they even managed to cross the line with their predominately female audience, which was not ready to accept that men are women’s default punching bags.”

another hollywood whitewashing: Margot Robbie Circling ‘Ghost in the Shell’ Live-Action Movie

The Wrap is reporting that Margot Robbie has begun “early talks” to star in Sander’s Ghost in the Shell movie. Robbie’s potential role isn’t specified in the article, but presumably her character would be based on the Major Motoko Kusanagi character from Masamune Shirow’s 1989 source manga (and Mamoru Oshii’s 1995 anime film adaptation of the same name).

Ghost in the Shell, for those not familiar, takes place in a future (the year 2029 in Oshii’s anime feature) where much of the world is interconnected through a massive electronic network via cybernetic bodies known as “shells.” Major Kusanagi, an agent for a public security service known as Section 9, is tasked with tracking down an elusive hacker known as the Puppet Master, which leads to her uncovering a far larger conspiracy at work.


New Jersey man sues car dealership for firing him over refusal to take part in Bible study

The former manager of a New Jersey car dealership accused his ex-employers of firing him for refusing to take part in religiously-themed activities ordered by the store’s owners, the New Jersey Law Journal reported.

Joseph Haughey’s civil rights lawsuit argues that his termination from the CarSense dealership in Mount Holly in January 2011 was connected to an awkward encounter with company president Eugene Niconovich three weeks earlier.

According to the lawsuit, Haughey was attending a Bible study group meeting at the dealership when the company’s owner and CEO, Francis McGowan, told him he “could not wait for that glorious day” when he died, because it would enable him to “spend eternity in heaven with Jesus.” The lawsuit stated that the meetings were led by Niconovich, who was disturbed when Haughey did not respond to McGowan’s statements.


Haughey’s reluctance to engage in religious discussions with co-workers had allegedly been a source of tension between himself and Niconovich since October 2010, when Niconovich urged him to be “more outwardly religious” in spite of an “outstanding” performance as the dealership’s manager.

Haughey, a Roman Catholic, allegedly said he could not lead a prayer session at an upcoming employees’ meeting and did not attend church often. Niconovich fired Haughey for allegedly yelling at employees in two separate instances.
The suit argues that Niconovich’s reasoning for his dismissal was used as a “pretext for religious discrimination.”

While Haughey did admit in the suit that he yelled once at an employee, he stated that he apologized the next day. The second incident, the suit argued, involved Haughey asking a salesperson from across the dealership to instruct a customer to stay on the premises while police arrived. Haughey had contacted authorities when the customer’s dog bit the salesperson.

Niconovich, McGowan and CarSense are all named as defendants in the suit, which was moved to the U.S. District Court for the District of New Jersey on Aug. 29.
