There’s an industry based on what can be described the misandry axis. Misandry is the hatred or dislike of men or boys.
Incidentally, the better class of prostitute in the title is not intended to refer to the evolving and artificially intelligent version s of sex robots that I’ve written about elsewhere, see the website: “The Robot Who Loved Me,” and the science fiction book “House of Clockwork Women.”
And it definitely does not refer to the fictional stereotype; “hooker with a heart of gold.”
No, the axis of the misandry industry extends from Women’s Studies Departments in universities to domestic violence shelters in the inner cities.
Both ends of this axis seem, on the surface, to be drawing their incomes, and their influence, from the abuse of men. They are immensely protective of that money and that power.
Suggest a “Male Studies” program for a university and watch the defensive fireworks. (No, “Gender Studies” as sometimes offered is Women’s Studies with a different label.) The possibility of balance in the curriculum is greeted with screams of pain. Of course; at a stroke they would lose half their funding, along with all their scapegoats.
At the other end of the misandry axis is the Women’s Shelter movement, which has as an article of faith that women don’t abuse. They do, and at least as often as men. (Bring that up in a conversation and watch those defensive fireworks. Don’t bother bringing up the research, your audience is now focused on getting you to shut up.)
As an aside, a part of the weird history of the research on women's share domestic violence is here.
Restricting domestic violence intervention is to one gender is like putting all your police protection in the northern half of a town. It might be said to work… for that part of town.
Women’s Studies exploit unhappy women. In fact they create new ones every day. So they sustain that condition.
Domestic violence shelters exploit unfortunate women. They refuse to prevent, they refuse to admit, any female contribution to domestic violence. So they sustain that condition.
In both of these situations, if effective methods of solving the problems were used, the problems would be reduced. However the incomes and influence of the leaders would be reduced.
Prostitution exploits women who are both unhappy and unfortunate.
So both ends of the misandry axis are forms of prostitution, dependent on extending the exploitation of women. A more accurate term might be “procuring.”
Those who make their living in the misandry industry are in the position of doctors who specialize in a particular disease, unethical doctors who discover a cure, but a cure that would put them out of business. Partial cures, or non-cures are more profitable.
Two out of these three forms of prostitution are legal in most states. One of them is even taught in most states.
Procuring will never be an ethical business model. Not in any of these forms. Unfortunately it is profitable in all of these forms.
A strange outcome; that the hatred or dislike for men or boys winds up abusing women.
Adam likes the company of small domestic animals and 82% of women. Enjoys long walks in the rain (in the Pacific Northwest, he'd better).
