Quote# 88543

These are merely five of the many semi-unknown female heroes of the past few years. I listed them in the order in which I admired their courage and actions - meaning, that they are from greatest to least. But, that is not to say that I don’t admire them all. I respect all of these women for their courage, strength, resolve, and willingness to do what is just.

#1 – Sandra Crockett (1997)
In 1997, Sandra Crockett had her mentally handicapped son, who was 21 at the time, castrated in order to curb his sexual impulses and aggression. She feared that he would be taken away from her because of this, and she did not want him to be placed in a mental institution. Likewise, she said that he had been feeling some pain in his testicles. This one was originally number three on my list, but I loved this woman’s story so much, that I moved it up to number one. I greatly admire her, and I think she is a loving, kind hero. She did what she thought was best for her son, and it benefitted them both in the end. I believe that more women should, in terms of the practicality of the modern world, follow her example.

#2 – Anjana Maity (2009)
In 2009, forty-two year old Anjana Maity castrated her 13 year old son and then beheaded him. Interestingly enough, this act of release against the boy was committed after the woman’s husband, Ranjit Maity, left their family. He had had an affair, and he had threatened to set her and her son on fire if they did not leave him alone. The child was clearly suffering, as was she, and this should be considered an act of mercy on her behalf. So, regardless of whether she was arrested or not, she did the right thing.

#3 – Catherine Kieu Becker (2011)
In 2011, forty-eight year old Catherine Kieu Becker cut off her husband’s penis with a ten-inch kitchen knife. No act such as this is committed if the other party is undeserving. And, given that her husband was a man, who had attempted to abandon her, I would say that he did, indeed, deserve it. Mrs. Becker is a hero for seeking retribution for the misery she had been caused by her husband. Regardless of whether or not she was arrested, she is a champion, and I admire her courage.

#4 – Joyce Maxine Gregory (2012)
In 2012, thirty-five year old Joyce Maxine Gregory fought back against her boyfriend, or ex-boyfriend, after he went on a rampage through their home. During the struggle that followed afterwards, she grabbed his testicles, causing the scrotum to split open. And, while he may have recovered afterwards, meaning she didn’t quite finish the job, I still admire her for her bravery. It takes a lot to stand up against someone who is physically larger than you, especially when they have lost control of their senses. I salute her.

#5 – Chalie Simon (2009)
In 2009, nineteen year old Chalie Simon grabbed her boyfriend by the testicles and squeezed hard as he attempted to forcefully push her from his residence. Her actions came from his neglect for her feelings, and his neglect of providing the simple attention that she asked him for. It was justified, and regardless of whether or not she was arrested, I salute her for standing up against someone who mistreated her for loving them.

That is my list for now - five of the greatest, semi-unknown female heroes of the past few years and or decades. I salute them all, I admire them all, and I hope that I, too, can be as brave when standing up against those who wish to do me harm.

Fundies Make Me Sick

Most of this is absolutely sick and four of out five of these women should be charged with some form of battery or criminal homicide. They are not heroines (that's the term for female heroes, bitch), they are monsters who need to punished for their crimes. This kind of "feminism" has no place in the world because it's not true feminism, it's misandry which is no better than misogyny.

Well, if it's any consolation, her remarks imply they were at least arrested. With such obvious physical evidence (ahem) I can't imagine many of them got off.

No, y'know, pun intended.

At what point could beheading EVER be called an act of mercy?

@Everybody commenting on her suicide:
She didn't. She's still posting to her blog.

Gee, radical feminists sure are biophilic, aren't they Mary Daly?

I am a man, and I admire feminism. I strongly believe in women's rights.

I couldn't agree more with this article, and i think it goes both ways.

If a man is being abused or abandoned by his female partner he should either cut her breasts off or cut her genital lips and clitoris.

#1 - Well that's pretty messed up. I can understand her worry about her son being taken from her, but is announcing to the world that she's only able to parent him by castrating him a good idea? Seems to me she's more likely to have him taken away now.

#2 - That's not an act of mercy; if it was she wouldn't have castrated him before murdering him. That's an act of torture and she's sick. I don't think it matters who treated you badly, or how much, taking your anger out on children by torturing and murdering them is horrifically evil.

#3 - Well, if that's how she reacted, I'm not surprised he left her. I wouldn't want any contact with a violent psycho bitch either.

#4 - Oh. This one sounds... totally justified. [i]Hero[ine][/i] might be going a bit far, but good on her.

#5 - She's clearly either an ex who wouldn't accept the relationship is over (a situation I've been in myself and from which I still have literal scars), or worse, a stalker. Either way she has no right to be on his property without his consent and her refusal to leave is trespassing. Becoming violent when he has to resort to force is not justified at all. Just try swapping the genders and see how much respect you'd have for a man who entered a woman's property, refused to leave, then physically attached her when she tried to force him out. No one would be giving that guy the time of day; this woman doesn't deserve different judgement just because she doesn't have balls.

(Edit function on the fritz, normally it doesn't give me any trouble. So, sorry for the cdouble postists)

Well, that was fun. Protip: look up harm sometime, yeah?

@Snarker: If someone was dying in agony, and beheading them was the most painless method of ending their suffering, I can see an argument for that. The circumstances would have to be pretty restrictive to eliminate all kinder options though. Of course, cutting off someone's fingers and genitals while they're still alive falls squarely into "cannot ever be considered merciful" territory.

What's really sad (apart from everything I already covered) is, Femitheist clearly swallows the myth promoted by both feminists and misogynists that violence and aggression are masculine characteristics and violent behavior from women is always attributable to coercion or desperation. The view of women as passive and delicate is chauvinistic!

Double post over 24 hours later? Come on, browser. Sorry guys.

you see, this is why I'm not a feminist, if it meant I could live without having my penis chopped off, I would support the movement
