“Should the Whipping Post for Wife-Beaters be Reestablished?” Asked of Women - 1921


This post is one of many on The Unknown History of MISANDRY which uses historical newspaper reports to prove that the widely disseminated feminist false claim that, before the advent of 1960s marxist feminism, the problem of domestic violence was not publicly condemned, was not treated as a crime by police and judges and that the problem was treated as a "private family matter" rather than an issue of criminal assault. This lie is spread – with the use of taxpayer dollars – on a daily basis and on a large scale by publicists who knowingly take public money to spread falsehoods.

The five women who answered this question were a secretary, two dancers, a model, and a magician.

Today’s Question: Should a whipping post for wife-beaters be reëstablished?

***

The answers.

Answer #1 – Velda Thompson, 180 West Washington street, secretary – Yes; while there are many women who deserve a whipping, a man who would strike a woman certainly should be sentenced to the whipping post. I think that would stop a lot of men from using their wives as punching bags.

Answer #2 – Florence Carter, 2649 Warren avenue, dancer – Yes. Although a nagging woman is an awful evil, that does not justify a man striking her. We need some good old fashioned correctives in this country. The male sex is becoming too careless in its treatment of women.


Answer #3 – Mildred Hillery, Washington hotel, model – Yes. I would even go farther, I think a wife beater should be hanged. Some men seem to think, when they swear to take a woman for better or for worse, that the latter stands for worse treatment.


Answer #4 – Mme. Verona, 515 North Clark street, magician – Sure. A man who would beat his wife his wife needs a good, snappy punishment. The whipping post would supply a form of punishment he would not soon forget. It ought to be reëstablished right away.


Answer #5 – Labon Summers, 4016 South Michigan avenue, dancer – It all depends on the wife. Some women render a husband desperate. Their tongues seem to be hung in the middle and they never stop wagging them. Maybe we ought to try the ducking stool before we try the whipping post.

Here is an excellent 2010 article that offers an interpretation of this 1921 Chicago Tribune whipping post piece, which deals with the fact that the feminist myth that “only since the 1970s has the criminal justice system begun to treat domestic violence as a serious crime, not as a private family matter” is promoted everywhere at all times to the innocent public:

• You have been told that before the rise of feminism in the 1960s that domestic violence against women was tolerated by society as acceptable behavior and was not taken seriously by police and the courts.

You have been lied to you. The people who told you these lies were paid to tell them you. In most cases you paid your own money (taxes and tuition fees) to be led to.

Here is one of countless pieces of evidence that demonstrate the truth.

• To see more eloquent, vivid evidence proving the lie and giving you the truth, see:

No, the claim that laws created by males were for the benefit of males is false. Yes, the "Rule of Thumb" myth has been proven top be a marxist-feminist hoax.
