2017 – Anna Young – Micanopy, Alachua County, Florida











  1. I know other women who tortured others. For the sake of avoiding my own triggers, I'll leave aside those who combined it with violent sexual assault. A strong case for misandry can be made there, but ironically, it was men who denied women could do such things. I owe my life to the feminists who knew better.

    With all that said...

    The woman who did the most horrifying things (slugs, salt, sandpaper...and biting places that shouldn't bleed.) did them with her victims' consent, and was actually a pretty awesome human being. It was weird watching complete strangers run away from her in terror, knowing that her slaves auditioned to be with her, and that her hobbies included saving animals thought to be too violent from being killed. But she looked like a vampire going through chemotherapy, so that may have played a part...

    Also, the safe word she gave her partners was the Gettysburg Address.

    Still, she's proof that even the most violent urges can be tamed and directed in a sort of positive way.

    The one who taught me the ways in which my skin could be a weapon used against me, on the other hand, had a lovely smile, and an underdog story that made complete strangers want to help her. One day, she taught me her secret to being an underdog, when I tried to push her out of the way to escape her - she told me it was abuse. She also assured me that there was nobody who would believe me, if she decided I was the villain.

    So I let her do things. And no, I won't share what they were.


    Pain is pain. It ends. Besides, she left no marks. One day, I just found a way to never see her again.

    I'm just afraid for her daughter. I wish I had never helped her regain custody. If only I had known...

    So please understand, I'm well aware that women are all unique individuals, and sometimes that's the worst possible thing.

    But you're using women who torture to prove misandry. I'm not sure how one leads to the other. Aren't these women outliers?

    What would a list of men who torture look like? Aren't some of them even paid for it?

    1. "But you're using women who torture to prove misandry," you have asserted. This is false. These stories do not "prove misandry." I did not claim they prove misandry, or anything else. They are historical information that other may like to use to help recover from generalizations (memes) that are repeated to them and that cause cognitive dissonance. Ideological indoctrination and repeated false "facts," as well as repeated false historical narratives cause the public to passively accept the increasing tyranny of control-freak government, and to fail to be circumspect in their personal lives. Above all mass indoctrination and false propaganda (beginning in early childhood) undermines the development of critical thinking faculties.

      The propagation of false stereotypes (based on bogus, anti-scientific "gender" ideology) and the deliberate manipulation of historical narratives designed to further marxist-feminist political ends is indeed misandry. "Critical theory" is misandrist. It is the new Lysenkoism.

      The best way to challenge ("transgress") the status quo (which, today is a quasi-religion: fundamentalist social constructivism, with political correctness being its censorship means used to enforce dogma) is to, instead of depending on broad general abstract models and theories, to look closely at reality and think, develop nuanced understanding, and come to one's own conclusions -- but to never be self-satisfied with those conclusions, but instead continue to think, learn and challenge consensus "training" and peer pressure.
