Feminists worldwide just got their biggest anti-men win in decades

82

Modern feminism is simply about hating men.

They spend all their time complaining about how evil men are.

And feminists worldwide just got their biggest anti-men win in decades.

Following the lead of feminists, the mainstream media and top politicians can’t go a day without chastising men.

Rep. Ilhan Omar (D-MN) even recently declared that people “should be more fearful of white men.”

So when it came time for GQ, supposedly a “men’s magazine,” to declare their “Game Changer of the Year,” they decided to avoid a man.

Instead, they are naming Greta Thunberg — a 16-year-old Swedish girl famous for leading a “strike” from school until radical environmental policies are put into place.

She has supposedly inspired 1.6 million other kids to ditch school as well, making her a hero to the radical Left.

The Independent reports:

Greta Thunberg has been named “Game Changer of the Year” by GQ Magazine.

The 16-year-old environmentalist will receive the award, which was created especially for her, in London on Tuesday evening at the publication’s annual awards ceremony that celebrates achievements in popular culture, politics and activism.

The Swedish teenager has risen to fame thanks to her pioneering climate change activism, which hit the headlines last year when her decision to go on strike from school to raise awareness for environmental issues inspired 1.6 million others around the world to do the same.

The movement Thunberg started is now known as #FridaysForFuture in reference to Thunberg’s decision to continue going on strike from school every Friday until the Swedish government takes action on climate change.

For being a men’s magazine, this is clearly a choice that will anger many readers.

But it isn’t surprising.

With the Left ratcheting up their anti-men rhetoric, anything for men is being demonized.

In order to avoid that demonization, embracing the radical Left is a requirement.

And featuring a 16-year-old Left-wing activist seems to be a good way to appease the feminist mob.

Do you think modern feminism has gone too far?

  2. I wonder how many teenagers read GQ magazine. Seems to me GQ just ditched their lifeline. This is the way of all these established corporations that have been taken over by liberals eager to “educate” their customers. Say goodbye GQ!

  3. People who are full of HATE & INTOLERANCE (Obama’s legacy) do not deserve to be trusted much less respected.

  4. In her 1991 book, The Sexual Politics of Meat, pro-choice feminist theologian Carol J. Adams (she has a Master’s degree from the Yale Divinity School) notes that throughout human history, beginning with the hunter-gatherer tribes, meat has been associated with male violence and masculinity, people with power, the aristocracy, etc.

    Meat is associated with male virility, whereas vegetable and nonmeat foods are viewed as women’s food. “Meat is a symbol of patriarchy” writes Adams bluntly.

    Adams cites a fictional illustration from Mary McCarthy’s Birds of America. Miss Scott, a vegetarian, is invited to a NATO general’s house for Thanksgiving. Her refusal of turkey angers the general.

    According to Adams, “Male belligerence in this area is not limited to fictional military men. Men who batter women have often used the absence of meat as a pretext for violence against women.”

    Adams compares “The Rape of Animals” to “the Butchering of Women,” as well as “Sexual Violence and Meat Eating.” She quotes the organizer of a “Bunny Bop” in which rabbits are killed by clubs, feet, stones, etc. as saying, “What would all these rabbit hunters be doing if they weren’t letting off all this steam? I’ll tell you what they’d be doing. They’d be drinking and carousing and beating their wives.”

    Feminists For Life (FFL) compares the idea that the unborn is merely the property of its mother to the old idea that women were once the property of their husbands. According to FFL, abortion is a form of violence women are forced to turn to in a patriarchal society — a society insensitive to the needs of a new mother.

    Carol J. Adams and Feminists for Animal Rights (FAR) similarly compares the way human animals oppress nonhuman animals to the way the patriarchy oppresses women — rejecting status quo thinking that nonhuman animals are the property of human animals.

    A pamphlet distributed by Milwaukee SOUL (Save Our Unwanted Lives) points out that under current U.S. law, corporations are considered legal persons, while humans in prenatal development are denied this moral status.

    (reprinted in Pro-Life Feminism: Different Voices, 1985)

    In 1989, Presbyterian minister and environmental activist Richard Cartwright Austin similarly discussed proposals to amend the Constitution:

    “It is time to affirm that all creatures within the boundaries of our nation deserve constitutional recognition, and that rights extend beyond the human community…

    “To secure their rights within our legal system they would, of course, require human agents willing to argue their case, just as agents now represent the perceived interests of infants, the comatose, and others who cannot speak on their own behalf.

    “Corporations, which are legal constructions and not natural beings, have standing in court to protect their interests now…

    “A constitutional amendment to recognize the rights of a vast new constituency — all God’s creatures–will not succeed without broad popular support. Animals ask us for considerate treatment and the earth cries for loving care.”

    (Austin’s words reflect the rising tide of environmental concern in America and the emergence of an animal liberation theology in the United States.)

    Both movements (FFL and FAR) have a common agenda on feminist issues: opposition to sexual discrimination, sexual harassment, the feminization of poverty, lack of affordable childcare or healthcare, wage differences, the diversion of resources from social services to the military industrial complex, etc.

    The Feminists for Animal Rights newsletter (Vol. VI, Nos. 1-2, 1991) for example, cites vegan author John Robbins’ EarthSave Foundation as stating that taxpayer subsidies to the livestock industry in California for 1991 totaled $24 million, while the yearly budget for child welfare was only $125,000.

  5. There is an agenda to rid the word of humanity. Why? Because the old man downstairs wants God to create no more Souls, so no more Saints. It’s always the good versus evil. Today the eruption of hated among all groups is a great sign of his presence and he has been getting bolder. Pray, pray, be obedient to all God’s Commandments is the only way to rid the world of him.

  6. The amount of hatred growing in this world is trying to rid the world of all humanity. It is the same old game of the man downstairs to rid Souls to be created by God to one day fill the Heavens out of His Love. Pray, pray and be obedient all God’s Commandments is the only way to rid the world of the evil one’s presence.

  7. Feminist movement is a disgrace. Young women are a disgrace. Brain dead fools. All they care about are themselves. Useless stains on humanity. Spoil brats . Thank you parents are raising ungrateful uneducated fools . These feminists have destroy what real caring feminists started years ago.

  8. Absolutely true modern feminism is disgusting it’s just pure HATE it’s sickening and politicians are low life’s with no backbone and liars.. If you so called feminists want to really be someone then do something without trying to destroy anything because of a man!!!! I am a woman and I think the way you go about trying to change things is DISGUSTING!!!!! What you are doing is absolutely NOTHING

  9. I am in awe of this movement. So we are now celebrating uneducated youth. Next we can say stupid people are to be honored.

  10. Why do we give these idiots any air?
    I guarantee you she will not be remembered a year from now.
    Even the Nike Kneeler has faded somewhat. He was white hot for a moment. Now he’s dull red.
    Ignore all this chatter. It’s all a distraction.

  11. Feminists should boycott all “man” made inventions, starting with feminine hygiene products. Without the “toxic masculinity” built into every male, which has through war, brought us modern civilization, democracy and freedom of choice – women would all be slaves to tyrannical dictators the world over.

  12. THE ALMIGHTY GOD MADE A DIFFERANCE BETWEEN MALE AND FEMALE THAT NO ONE CAN CHANGE.HE WILL DEFEAT ALL EVIL.VENGEANCE IS MINE SAYETH THE LORD I WILL REPAY. SOCHILDREN OF GO D STAND STEDFAST IN LORD JESUS CHRIST. THE END TIME IS NOT YET BUT GETTING CLOSER.PRAY FOR ALL TO TRULY GET SAVED INTHE NAME OF JESUS CHRIST.

  13. Without men, there would be no women! Think about that for awhile, feminists. Join the ranks of the right. It’s like when God made the church. He said, now we are no longer Jews or Gentiles, men or women, etc. because we all were Christians. That’s how we treat EVERYBODY, equal. But we still have our own characteristics that make us each unique. I am a white woman, yet I embrace the existence of men and other women of every size, shape, and color.. But we all have our place. Boy’s clubs belong to boys. Girl’s clubs belong to girls. If a girl doesn’t like the activities at their girl’s club, go to your leaders and ask that other activities be added. Don’t force your way into a boy’s club, where you don’t belong. Any conservative can see this. Sorry you liberals can’t.

  14. How appropriate! An ignorant child decides to protest by skipping school – and becoming more ignorant! Greta Thunberg might be the best possible example of what to teach your children not to do. I really pity children who become tools of ignorant adults; it is a peculiarly abhorrent form of child abuse.

  15. What about having the PARENTS be responsible for their children attending school and leave the teaching to our teachers…..If the CHILD does not want to go to school, let the PARENT suffer any kick back because their CHILD didn’t get an education…..let the CHILD live with his parents the rest of it’s life….This would allow the teachers to TEACH the students that want to be there and not have to handle the child and disturbances that may occur doesn’t want to be there!!!!

  16. “the yearly budget for child welfare was only $125,000.” That statement is an out right lie !! The total spent on child welfare in the state of California has to be over 24 million and I would not be surprised if it was not in the billions. School lunch programs alone are probably in the billions

  17. Sweden is a lost cause! This ignorant child thinks we can change the climate/weather? If that were humanly possible we would have already halted hurricanes, tornadoes and violent tropical storms. Please also make that big destructive Hail go away!! No matter how much money they throw at climate change, humans can’t change it, get that into your head!!

  18. How wonderful! I can’t wait to hear what everyone must do from a 16 year old! Don’t bother to finish high school or go to college, she obviously knows everything already. If she is able to read, I suggest the book by Senator Inhofe: “The Greatest Hoax”, then explain why the so called “scientists” hid their data from peer reviewers, and took action to suppress any scientific studies that provided evidence of a different cause for “climate change”, and even blacklisted any scientific journals who dared to publish such reports! I guess that is the new “scientific method” – shut down any opposition thought.

  19. Those “feminists” should boycott all men even having sex with them then maybe they’d stop having all of those unwanted pregnancies and wouldn’t feel the desire to murder another human being.
    They hate children and want to ruin everyone else’s.

  20. It is said that half of the world’s scientists blame global warming for issues and the other half of the scientists say global warming is pure BS. My thoughts on global warming is not very compelling either way because there is not enough definite, persuasive information either way to throw the red alert signal. Even though this girl is 16 and a liberal, what does she know that supports global warming and how can she prove the other half of the world’s scientists wrong who think “global warming” is bunk? A sixteen year old going to school for 5 days a week, I would think she and the other 1.6 million teens around the world to “skip school” on Fridays for another day out of school. There is a simple fix here. Every day these kids skip school they have an unexcused absence. Those days will add up to an expulsion eventually or, in America, legal action will be taken against the parents of the child who has missed to many scheduled school days. Who can say that 1.6 million kids skipping school is nothing more than kids getting out of school instead of #FridaysForFuture.

  21. Modern feminism is nothing more than a smoke screen until these women act and do everything the same as men including being able to be ridiculed and shamed without having a hissy-fit . Sorry if you want to be on the same level then get on up here and stop making excuses that your treated unfairly so are men climbing the ladder. It is about intestinal fortitude . It is how many times you get back up not why can’t I be there I deserve it. Your movement will eventually fail if everything is granted to you. Without the learning curve placing you on top means nothing other than someone will eventually come along and knock you off and if you don’t have the ability to shrug it off and start over your destined to stay on the bottom. Have I offended you Too bad

  22. The media is filled with one moron after another today telling us the divisions and intolerance in society and government must come to an end…so GQ just demonstrated they are far more interested in magazine sales and women then coming together as a society to work in cooperation instead of resorting to more hate speech and intolerant… to do what… elevate a 16 year-old village idiot to superstar status? I have a friend who graduated from a prestigious college here in Los Angles last year—he received his Ph.D. at 32-years of age and in spite of an excellent job resume, every one of the women in his class have obtained jobs, he has had 40 interviews and no one will hire him…WRONG COLOR, WRONG GENDER is that were this leads? A society in which an inexperienced 22 year-old woman gets a job but a men with a higher degree and job experience is cast off as worthless because of his sex? Be careful what you wish for little girl…better keep in mind most of the world’s wealth is held by men and men owned companies, you may be creating a hideous backlash that you have not planned on …now go dye your hair green and try to remain relevant until you grow up…as a COMPANY OWNER for over two decades I have finally succeeded in orchestrating an “all male” staff as a direct result of this hideous female thinking and behavior, including the increase of sexual law suits in the past decade… my company has never run so smooth—accomplished without a single females’ hands screwing up the works and an environment of being compulsive about their rank, their pay, their hair, their looks, their clothes without a single thought of their JOB “PERFORMANCE.” We all speak freely in the office these days without that ugly fear of saying something that leads to a woman in tears in which her “Feelings” are more important than getting things done to earn the money that gives her a paycheck…in over 20 years of business I have never been able to deposit “Feeling” into the company bank account…

  23. Well nothing new here about todays ” society”. We spend all our time on facebook learning how awful having and USING common sense is. We have folks offfended by what they can’t control, skin color, gender, history, foods, weather, fat, thin, tall, short you name it. Thank God I’m 77, and about ready to leave the Valley of the Crazies! Breaking folks: There are just some things we mear mortals have no power over, get over it and move on!

  24. Seeing as this 16 year old brat wants to skip school on Fridays, she needs to be expelled and not able to return to school until further notice. All this junk about climate change is a bunch of hooey!! The only climate change I have seen in all my 54 years on this earth is watching it change from winter to spring to summer to fall! And…if they would read their Bibles then they would see that yes the world is getting warmer and it is because Jesus is coming soon and very soon, and God is getting ready to destroy the earth with fire and brimstone. don’t believe me? Then read Isaiah 24, and 2 Peter 3:10.

  25. I agree with you! But then of course I had the same husband for 43 years ! Didn’t change husbands like clothing. Was he perfect ? Probably not , but then neither was/am I. We spent time RESPECTING each other for his/ her opinions and their feelings not trying to make each other our individual ideas of “perfect”. Did it take time and effort by us both? You betcha! Was it worth it? More than I could ever tell you! Thank you God for having given me a man of character and faith!

  26. #Fridaysforfuture. Very catchy phrase. Hmmm how many Fridays will be missed, I wonder. Just another childish excuse for a long weekend from a child whose parents are allowing this because she’s cute, or maybe they see no stupidity in their child, or maybe they are only 30 years older than their child and are still children themselves. Most people under 55 still can’t fathom what it’s all about. Most people over 55 can’t fathom what it’s all about either, but we, at least, have learned to keep our mouths shut!

  27. Stupid liberals don’t seem to realize that most people don’t swallow their load of crap. All they’re doing is separating themselves farther from those who make and spend money.

  28. I think they know they can’t change anything, even if it actually needed it.

    It IS about throwing money at it which wnds up in the global warming scammers’ pockets.

    They’re nothing but con artists, and not too artistic about their scam.

  29. I am a man. I can see being treated the same. Work wise, health. But if you want to die lonely that is on you.

  30. We’ll if you read just a small part of that you can see feminist are a bunch of IDIOTS who do not know how to use the brain that GOD gave them and since I didn’t read the whole thing, it probably tells us that they don’t believe in GOD either! I have no use for anyone who murders and I especially don’t have any use for those who murder thier own unborn child or living child and the world should have no use for them either!

  31. Yes we should all be praying and following God’s Laws but only GOD can and will destroy satan not US praying and following the commandments!

  32. Giving up their education will make them wishing they had listened and got their education, but education today has been filled with so many lies, and so much untaught, to bring them and America down. They have to think for themselves and not follow the crowd. God put man over woman and He knows what works as He rules, and if you don’t think He exists, seek Him with all your heart and you will find Him close as air you breathe. People can’t find true Love, peace, Love as they leave the Lord God out of their life. This has been a plan to get people away from God as He blesses obedience and we get what we deserve when disobedient to Him.. Read the Word of God the Holy Bible inspired by Him. Not one changed to what man wants, as God said not a word to be changed. Some may tell it in different ways, but the message has to be there, the truth.

  33. Expel her from school.
    Her actions don’t hurt anyone except perhaps herself. But who cares? Not me!!!

  34. The only one who has been preaching HATE & INTOLERANCE is Trump and the fools he’s hired! He rants about everyone, makes fun of disabled people and uses every disparaging word he can think of toward people of color. And if you think that it’s okay to value a person less because they were born female, you’re as uneducated as he is, and as much of a LOSER as he will soon prove to be. Because he will lose, and you can kiss your dream of whites being a majority in this country goodbye. I think it will be good for us whites to find out what we’ve been putting everybody else through all these years. I bet they’ll be a lot kinder to us than we were to them!

  35. Without men, there would be no women!

    How silly is that? Do you really believe that Adam’s rib nonsense? Do you realize the Bible was written by MEN? Did you ever hear of Lilith? The Bible has some good ideas, particularly the New Testament, but to live by only the parts you pick out (or that your minister picks for you) is half-assed, and why should your life be ruled by books written by men anyway?

    You sound like you believe everyone should “fit in”. But without the rebels, many things would not have been tried, or discovered. Open your mind!

  36. I thought that is what they just did.

    The vast majority of those “following” her actions most likely just wanted an excuse to ditch school and have no real idea about the political agenda behind her actions or ramifications if the policies are actually imposed.

    Most likely many of them ditched got caught and used this excuse to avoid the normal punishment for skipping/ditching class.

    Like that one interviewed a while back who was protesting wanting to abolish all agricultural use of land because that’s what someone apparently told her to say since she could give no valid reason for wanting to end all food production.

    When she was asked where she thought she would get her food if they did this she gave the response those completely ignorant of where food comes from always give and replied “from the super market”.

    Apparently they think the supermarket magically fills its aisles with food as if that supermarket could still supply food when they can no longer buy it from ranches and farms, package and resell it to their customers if they shut down all agricultural use of land like she wanted.

  37. In her 1993 book, Animal Scam: The Beastly Abuse of Human Rights, Kathleen Marquardt writes: “The typical animal rights activist is a white woman making about $30,000 a year. She is most likely a schoolteacher, nurse, or government worker. She usually has a college degree or even an advanced degree, is in her thirties or forties, and lives in a city.”

    Marquardt cites studies indicating that animal rights activists tend to identify with liberal causes such as feminism and environmentalism. “Every year,” writes the Reverend Andrew Linzey, an Anglican priest, Oxford theologian, and author of several books on Christianity and animal rights, “I receive hundreds of anguished letters from Christians who are so distressed by the insensitivity to animals shown by mainstream churches that they have left them or are on the verge of doing so.” It is not surprising, therefore, that Marquardt reports that “Most activists share a bias against Western civilization and its Judeo-Christian foundations.”

    According to Marquardt, the “political clout” of the animal rights movement “is surprisingly bipartisan. But most of the leading politicians working with the animal rights movement are liberal Democrats.” Marquardt makes mention of Senator Barbara Boxer of California, Nevada Congressman Jim Bilbray, Charlie Rose of North Carolina, Tom Lantos and Gerry Studds.

    Marquardt admits, however, that “some Republicans are animal rightists, too. Senate Minority Leader Bob Dole of Kansas often supports animal rights causes—except, of course, those pertaining to cattle, a major business in Kansas. Senator Robert Smith of New Hampshire was a founder of the Congressional Friends of Animals. Bob Dornan of California, one of the most conservative House members, is an animal rights advocate—he cosponsored legislation banning the use of animals in testing cosmetics and received a PETA award. And Manhattan Congressman Bill Green promoted legislation that would have shut down over 90 million acres of federal land to hunting, fishing, and trapping.”

    Marquardt states further that “Although he’s not an elected official, a conservative political figure who, surprisingly, is on the other side is G. Gordon Liddy, author Will and a key figure in the 1972 Watergate uproar. When I went on Liddy’s radio show, he and PETA’s Ingrid Newkirk greeted each other with hugs and kisses and lots of warm words.

    “With allies in both political parties and across the ideological spectrum,” concludes Marquardt, “the animal rights movement has been able to score some great successes, regardless of which party controls the White House or Capitol Hill.”

    You’d think the unborn-right-to-lifers would immediately understand the animal-right-to-lifers! The case for animal rights should be readily understandable to the millions of Americans opposed to abortion on demand.

    “Although I may disagree with some of its underlying principles,” writes pro-life Democrat Karen Swallow Prior, “there is much for me, an anti-abortion activist, to respect in the animal rights movement. Animal rights activists, like me, have risked personal safety and reputation for the sake of other living beings. Animal rights activists, like me, are viewed by many in the mainstream as fanatical wackos, ironically exhorted by irritated passerby to ‘Get a Life!’ Animal rights activists, like me, place a higher value on life than on personal comfort and convenience, and in balancing the sometimes competing interests of rights and responsibilities, choose to err on the side of compassion and nonviolence.”

    The animal rights movement, representing a cross-section of mainstream secular American society, is NOT “officially pro-choice,” but IS divided on abortion. In a 1992 interview on Dennis Prager’s conservative talk show, when specifically asked about the animal rights position on abortion, Ingrid Newkirk, co-founder of People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals (PETA), admitted, “We’re divided.”

    Former television game show host Bob Barker is a conservative Republican and an animal activist. Tony LaRussa of the Animal Rescue Foundation is a political conservative. Vegan labor leader Cesar Chavez was pro-life. Vegan civil rights leader Dick Gregory was pro-life. Former Washington Post columnist Colman McCarthy, a devout pacifist, has expressed opposition to abortion, and in the 1980s was critical of Reverend Jesse Jackson for having changed sides on the issue.

    Dixie Mahy, past president of the San Francisco Vegetarian Society, has been vegetarian for sixty years, vegan for forty of those sixty years, and identifies herself as pro-life-and-pro-animal Matthew Scully, a conservative Catholic and former speechwriter for George W. Bush identifies himself as “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life.” Catholic Concern for Animals is pro-life-and-pro-animal. Reverend Frank Hoffman’s http://www.all-creatures.org Christian vegan website is pro-life-and-pro-animal Compassion for animals is a fundamental tenet of the Baha’i faith, which endorses vegetarianism, says abortion is more a matter of individual conscience, but concludes, without taking a position on abortion, life should not be destroyed.

    John Stuart Mill wrote: “The reasons for legal intervention in favor of children apply not less strongly to the case of those unfortunate slaves — the animals.”

    Animals are like children. Henry Bergh, founder of the American Society for the Prevention of Cruelty to Animals (ASPCA), successfully prosecuted a woman for child abuse in 1873, at a time when children had no legal protection, under the then currently existing animal protection statutes. This case started the child-saving crusade around the world.

    In Christianity and the Rights of Animals, the Reverend Dr. Andrew Linzey writes: “In some ways, Christian thinking is already oriented in this direction. What is it that so appalls us about cruelty to children or oppression of the vulnerable, but that these things are betrayals of relationships of special care and special trust? Likewise, and even more so, in the case of animals who are mostly defenseless before us.”

    When told the animal rights movement is divided on abortion, Serrin Foster, Executive Director of Feminists For Life, said understandingly, “The Children’s Defense Fund is also divided on abortion.” Feminists For Life has many vegetarians and vegans. Serrin identifies herself as a vegetarian.

    From 1992 through 2003, James Dawson, raised Catholic and now a Buddhist, published Live and Let Live, a pro-life / animal rights / libertarian ‘zine. The ancient eastern reincarnationist religions Hinduism, Buddhism, and Jainism all predate Christianity, all oppose abortion, all teach ahimsa, or nonviolence towards humans and animals alike to the point of vegetarianism, all are vegan-friendly, and all teach that abortion and war are the karma for killing animals, and that therefore, we cannot end abortion nor bring about world peace until first we abolish the killing of animals.

    This knowledge, however, does not rest with everyone. Not all pro-life-and-pro-animal people advocate the reincarnationist strategy for ending abortion and bringing about world peace. Shay Van Vlieman, founder of Vegans For Life in the late ’90s, said she doesn’t expect to see a vegan president in her lifetime: she would just be glad to elect a president who will work to overturn Roe v. Wade. And she insists she is not a Republican, but a libertarian!

    During the late 1990s, Rachel MacNair, a Quaker pacifist, feminist, vegan, past president of Feminists For Life, moderated an email list for pro-life vegetarians and pro-life vegans. Rachel is now a psychology professor, and has written several books on nonviolence. In 1998, the Animals Agenda ran a cover story on the debate within the animal rights movement over abortion. Vegan congressman Dennis Kucinich (D – Ohio), one of the most liberal members of Congress, was pro-life throughout most of his political career.

    Pro-life vegetarians and pro-life vegans are found within the “consistent-ethic” movement: pro-lifers opposed to capital punishment. A significant number of “consistent-ethic” Christians were / are vegetarian or vegan: Rose Evans, Ruth Enero, Rachel MacNair, Albert Fecko, Carol Crossed, Bill Samuel, Mary Krane Derr, Mary Rider, Father John Dear, etc.

    Mary Rider, a practicing Catholic, wrote in Harmony: Voices for a Just Future, a “consistent-ethic” periodical in 2002:

    “So we teach our children to walk softly on the earth and to embrace nonviolence as the only legitimate means of conflict resolution, on both a personal and a global level. We are aware of the excessive, privileged life we lead as educated, first world U.S. citizens and of the responsibilities to which our privilege calls us. We try to live simply. We eat low on the food chain. We try to buy nothing new… We try to respect all life and carry that message forward in all we do… Because we value people and relationships over things… First world consumption kills people around the world… Pollution, environmental devastation, corrupt governments, war, sweatshops… all are a are a result of our desire to buy more at a lower price… We believe each person has a right to live a valued and respected life free from hunger and discrimination…”

    The threat of overpopulation is frequently used to justify abortion as birth control. On a vegan diet, however, the world could easily support a human population several times its present size. The world’s cattle alone consume enough to feed over 8.7 billion humans. Even if abortion advocates argue shifting to a plant-based diet, a vegan diet, isn’t enough to stave off overpopulation, in light of the data showing the depletion of energy, food, fresh water, land space, raw materials and resources as well as the heavy contribution to air and water pollution, deforestization, and global warming caused by a meat-centered diet, how do abortion advocates — warning about overpopulation consuming the world’s resources — justify consuming animal products?

    If vegetarianism were merely about “fit” or following a peculiar set of “dietary laws” why are pro-lifers offended by pro-choice vegetarians and pro-choice vegans? Clearly, they’re offended because they know vegetarianism involves the animals’ right to life, and thus these pro-choicers appear to value animal life over human life under some circumstances. And issues like animal experimentation, circuses, and fur have nothing to do with diet, eating, nor food, but do involve the animals’ right to life. Leonardo Da Vinci, Count Leo Tolstoy, Mohandas Gandhi, George Bernard Shaw, Susan B. Anthony, Percy Shelley, Rosa Parks, etc. were all vegetarian, and none of them were Jewish nor Muslim.

    For Love of Animals: Christian Ethics, Consistent Action offers an introduction to animal rights ethics within Christianity alongside directly related sanctity-of-life issues, like the possible rights of unborn children. The book’s foreword is written by Mary Eberstadt, senior fellow with the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, DC, a Catholic who identifies herself as “Pro-Animal, Pro-Life.”

    Author Charles Camosy responds to criticisms from academicians Peter Singer and Lynn White, Jr., that the misinterpretation of “human dominion” (versus compassionate stewardship) is responsible for the current ecological crisis. Camosy indicates that Christianity cannot be blamed if humans with their imperfections distort their own religious teachings, that Christianity did not give rise to the industrial revolution, and that real Christianity — as it was meant to be practiced — is at odds with market-driven ethics and mass consumerism (a point made decades ago by liberal Protestant theologian Dr. Harvey Cox). Camosy concludes: “I became convinced that, if I wanted to be authentically and consistently pro-life, I should give up eating meat.” Dozens of books have been written on Christianity and animal rights. Camosy merely provides an overview of animal ethics in Christianity.

    Steve Kaufman, head of the Christian Vegetarian Association, was raised Jewish, and is now serving in the United Church of Christ, America’s largest pro-choice Protestant denomination. Steve expressed interest in Democrats For Life, his only reservation was whether Democrats For Life favors criminalizing abortion. Some animal advocates and activists (like Catholic vegan columnist Colman McCarthy) oppose abortion, but don’t think criminalization is the answer.

    In 2004, on the Democrats For Life email list, Maria Krasinski mentioned a poll which found animal activists evenly divided on abortion. This either indicates animal rights really are a bipartisan cause which conservatives can support alongside liberals, or it indicates many liberals are uncomfortable with abortion!

    In 2014, Kristen Day of Democrats For Life said: “Roughly a third of the Democratic Party is pro-life. And while many do not call themselves liberal, they share the values which seem to identify with liberalism, particularly a commitment to helping the vulnerable and providing a social safety net.”

    The Democratic Party platform should support: Animal Rights, Defending the Affordable Care Act, Ending Citizens United, Ending Marijuana Prohibition, Giving Greater Visibility to Pro-Life Democrats, Gun Control, Net Neutrality, Raising the Minimum Wage to $15 an Hour, Responding to the Scientific Consensus on Global Warming, and a Sustainable Energy Policy.

  38. Stop coddling these immature young girls. They need a reality check. Worse than their ignorant actions are those that are influenced by them and promoting this garbage……media, magazines etc really?…where is your head?

  39. just a little bit obtuse and brain washed aren’t you. I would not admit to being Caucasian if I were that stupid.

  40. You should call yourself Rhode Island DUMB. Your comments are without merit. Lowest unemployment rate among colored and Hispanics. Created about as many if not more jobs than Obama lost. He is the only Presidents with B,,.s to stand up to countries that hate us and take advantage of us. Do I like everything he says or how he says it? NO. But I do like what he has done for this country. Bring God back into it for one. I suppose you would like to have ‘Crooked’ Hillery as your President. She should be in jail, not in the Oval Office.

  41. I bet half those skipping school don’t have a clue what all the feminists garbage hoop la is all about, they just skipping school because they can. They have gone to far.

  42. This crap they have now is not feminism, it is man-hating dykeism, and a slap in the face to the actual feminists that have worked for equal rights.

  43. So she is sixteen and not an adult yet, wonder why kind of man she will choose to have a relationship with when she wants one, or will she choose to be a lesbian, maybe when she wants to marry someone he will remind her of off when she was sixteen and walks away from her in disgust, you can’t have your cake and eat it too

  44. She’s not even in America and this magazine is for American males! She’s also under 18! Whoever made this choice needs to be MOONED! We all should go to the culprit’s office and MOON him or her or whoever it is!

  45. So called modern Feminism is a Joke! The left is always looking for a way to eliminate any authoritative figures . White men are clearly on their list of must go threats for their sick agenda . The Radical Left is trying to eliminate the existence of Man , In this case White man , from the face of the Earth so that they can easily take over the World . They want to eliminate the existence of Gender . Right now they are targeting White men , But eventually all men will have to go! They want a World with no limits or rules and no Religion whatsoever! Then they can take over the World under Homosexual Rule . This is a sick fantasy that would only lead to the extinction of the Human Race!

  46. Free, open her mind?? Try following your own advice. You have closed your mind to the truth. God created us whether you choose to believe it or not. And the Bible was written by men through God, who told them what to write. God gave us His book to tell us about Him and His great love for us. Jesus loves us so much that He came and died for us so we can join Him in Heaven. But you have rejected Him because He is a man??? You are a very sad creature. There are many women in the Bible and two books excluxively about a woman: Esther and Ruth. You have no clue at all what the Bible teaches. Yes, my life is ruled by a Book written by men THROUGH God who created and loves me. I know that I will go to Heaven. You have the same chance as everyone else to follow Jesus to Heaven or satan to hell. You have chosesn satan. sad.

  47. Feminists crossed the line right at the beginning in my viewpoint. They created an atmosphere where moms were expected to work full-time AND do all cycles connected with maintaining a family home. They are selfish and hateful, having no consideration at all for real women. On top of that, what they are doing to men and boys is despicable!

  48. well – when I was involved in the feminist movement, only 2 Ivy League schools admitted women. The one I attended did not allow women to matriculate in any of their engineering schools or the business school. My undergrad roommate went on to law school & was one of 5 women in her law school class. I also went on to graduate school & was a TA at a major university. Generally, the post graduation careers open to women were nursing & teaching. The women I knew were definitely not anti male – it was a desire to change our society. so that they had more options. Please note the word OPTIONS. When I had my 1st child, I opted to stay home because I preferred his being raised by an educated person. I continued to be involved in the women’s movement despite being unemployed. One of the mottoes of the women’s movement was that every mother is a working mother (because it is work to take care of children & a home) so women with outside jobs were considered employed. Not one person ever faulted me for the choice I made to stay home & I never ever felt demeaned in any way. One of the interesting & helpful topics discussed was how unemployed women could work in each other’s homes & be paid for the work they were doing anyway so they could eventually collect social security for their work in their own names. This was a way to give credit to women for so called “women’s work.” again – helping women -not demeaning them or men. Another thing this organization did was establish a safe house for victims of domestic violence.
    I assume that many of the people commenting on this site really are very personally unfamiliar with the women’s movement.

  49. Real men don’t read fashion magazines..GQ and the like are for the “alternative lifestyle”type of man who wants to know what to wear to look “pretty”.Basically all magazines are brainwashing tools for the vain.All GQ really did here was step out and show it’s true colors…not surprising and certainly not worth the attention.

  50. Why is a 16 year old girl on the cover of GQ? The feminist movement has gotten so ridiculous men need to dust and up and start marching for their rights. Women wanted to be like men dress like men (power suits) be able to do anything men can do in the end it cost our feminity. And men not knowing what to do to not insult us. I prefer the days when men were men and women were women (I am sure I am going to catch flack for these views) Also I don’t care that a 16 Year old starts a movement at 16 she has a long road ahead and a lot of knowledge to gain

  51. These feminists don’t seem to understand anything about nature. If you eliminate all of the men there won’t be any families, these women won’t ever give birth to a child so what will happen to the world as we know it. We have known throughout history that 10% of the population is Gay or Lesbian, this was accepted and these people lived among us normally without incident. The current feminist program is unfathomable don’t these women have parents? or are they taught by them to eliminate MEN from our world?

  52. Nasty language. This is how you liberals always reply when you don’t like what is said. You need to grow up or you one of the ones still living in your parents’ basement?

  53. “Rhode Island Smart”?? Isn’t that an oxymoron? Minus the Oxy, maybe? A state that’s largely in receivership, think Cranston, really shouldn’t be commenting on much of anything. This is a place that wanted to elect a mobster back into office…good ole Buddy Cianci in case you are too young to remember…after he served a prison sentence. Rhode Island is the poster child for the statement “You can’t fix stupid”.

  54. GQ needs to rename itself NGL for “No Good Leftists” magazine! Wow! Really sucks but I encourage all right of center men to cancel their subscriptions immediately! A real shame on them!

  55. yes and no. I grew up in the decade that women’s rights was in its infancy. Before the 1970’s, women were in the home and were to answer to the man. Men provided and had tge final say. Divorce and economy war time dictated the woman to move into work force and the independence grew. Women are still lagging in equal pay as well as men being allowed custodial parent over the women where the best interest of the child may be ignored in the court system. Men and wonen each have attributes that are related to body mass and strength but one can not replace the other.

  56. A group of women who hate men what a story ask every women if she does not like car door being opened for them doors held let women go first when walking or in a line my wife of 38 years loves it her needs come first and our marriage has never been better. These women have been whipped up to hate men and omar of Minn. we should hate all white men that women needs to be thrown out. These women think man should be on their knees serving them and all their needs

  57. Just read am article that her mom and dad did not support her activism initially since she was already suffering from depression and autism. They only came on board once she got all of the publicity and money when CNN became aware of her cause which is unfounded. She may have good intentions but she is wrong in so many ways and even her own parents were against her until the dollars started rolling in. Funny how that works isn’t it ?????

  58. GQ magazine is way way too gay for me. Their clothes adds look more like women’s wear than men’s. I stopped my subscription after receiving the first magazine.

  59. Road Island SMART ??? That is a joke for sure. Without Trump we would all have to buy new towels to wrap around our heads. We would have Sharia law that stones their wives, daughters, etc. etc. to death by crushing their heads and bodies. Just imagine your loved (supposedly) one being killed for the joy of watching them bleed to death.
