What is femprop?
A discussion of the aspects of political propaganda used to promulgate
the feminist ideology, 'men bad - women good'
Various propaganda terms
Etymology: Russian, from
agitatsiya agitation + propaganda

- agitprop adjective
|Agitprop is a necessary aspect of applied propaganda.
Without agitprop, propaganda goes no
farther than a car can go without wheels.

|Propaganda is a tool for the communist
and fascist regimes, primarily used in totalitarian regimes for spreading ideologies.
It is the primary tool for persuading the masses in all totalitarian
Communist and fascist regimes use identical propaganda tactics
but for slightly different aims. In one way or another, we became used to
designating propaganda used by communism as communist propaganda, and that
used by fascism as Nazi propaganda.
We could have saved ourselves a lot of work if only we had found more
terse and economical terms for propaganda that serve either ideology.
Belatedly, two vastly more economical terms could be used to identify
propaganda of either kind, comprop and nazprop. The terms fall into
the same family as, and go hand in hand with,
agitprop, a vital ingredient and aspect of all propaganda.
The reason for proposing the terms comprop and nazprop is that by
adopting these two terms into the general vocabulary we will become
enabled to identify other far less often recognized variations of
propaganda just as concisely. There is, for example, femprop (you
got that right: feminist propaganda).
Etymology: New Latin, from
feminismus feminism + propaganda
: PROPAGANDA; especially :
political propaganda promulgated chiefly to promote the feminist
ideology (men bad - women good) in politics, the judiciary, social
research, academe, the bureaucracy, the education system, the media,
publishing, literature, drama, music, art etc.
- femprop adjective
|Femprop has been around for a long time. It manifested itself in
soft agitprop expressions such as,
"I myself have never been able to find out precisely what feminism
is: I only know that people call me a feminist whenever I express
sentiments that differentiate me from a doormat, or a prostitute." Rebecca West, 1913
from where femprop then progressed to hard-line agitprop expressions such as,
The most merciful thing a large family can do to one of its infant
members is to kill it"
Margaret Sanger, founder of Planned
Parenthood, in Women and the New Rage, p.67
"In order to raise children with equality, we must take them away
from families and communally raise them."
Dr. Mary Jo Bane,
feminist and assistant professor of
Wellesley College and
associate director of the school's Center for Research
"All men are good for is f&%$ing, and running over with a truck".
Statement made by A University of Maine Feminist
Administrator, quoted by Richard Dinsmore, who brought a successful civil suit against the
University in the amount of $600,000. Richard had protested the quote, was dismissed
thereafter on the grounds of harassment; and responded by bringing suit against the
"I want to see a man beaten to a bloody pulp with a high-heel shoved
in his mouth, like an apple in the mouth of a pig."

Feminism and Society As seen through
feminists' eyes (and as seen through the eyes of others who still use common sense), a collection of quotes, by Bill Wood)
|Femprop does not stop at offering opportunities for outrageous
quotes. It reforms society from within. It does that so
all-pervasively and with such insidious persuasiveness that virtually no member
of society is aware of being brainwashed through femprop. When
propaganda becomes as ubiquitous as femprop has become, it will no longer
be noticed much. Therefore femprop is virtually unopposed by anyone
and successfully serves to indoctrinate the citizens of many nations with
the feminist ideology far more thoroughly than either communism or fascism ever
dared to hope.
FEMINISM vs. FACTS
There is a great deal of reckless disregard for the truth in
radical feminism. Some of it is so blatant that it certainly
deserves to be called lying, but some of it appears to reflect
the delusions of paranoia. What is worrisome is that so much
serious misrepresentation passes into the realm of "truth."
One might think that misrepresentations about checkable facts
could not survive long in an open society, but they can and
do [my emphasis --WHS],
probably because the press and the academy are very
pro-feminist. When a sensational report about the amount of
domestic violence against women appears, newspapers, magazines,
and even textbooks relay the news, and it quickly becomes
established folklore. The attitudes formed as a result are
embedded in the culture. Yet the facts, for those who care about
them, indicate that these reports are wild exaggerations or flat

Note: If the term "radical feminism" (a.k.a. Marxist- or
socialist-feminism) is somewhat new to you, you need to expand your
knowledge. After all, radical feminism, the currently
controlling faction of feminism, governs just about everything that
is happening in your life. See,
Carey Roberts column

political correctness. His best-known work is an exposé on Marxism and the roots of radical feminism.

|Under the heading
Collecting Information for Propaganda is not Research, Eeva
Sodhi put together a few examples of femprop that illustrate the
strategy used by feminists to subvert politics, politicians, the
bureaucracy and Academe to their aims.
Lately the Shari'a made the
news. It is the Islamic code of conduct derived from the Islamic
holy scriptures. The recently elected (Oct. 21, 2003) 30-member
board of the [Canadian] Islamic Institute for Civil Justice (IICJ) managed to get a judicial decision
put through that will launch portions of the Shari'a for arbitration negotiations involving Ontario Muslims, and that they hope will in short
order become spread throughout all of Canada.
A mere two months after its inception, and already a minority managed
to launch a major judiciary coup against the ravages of feminist family
politics. How easy and quick that was; and that is just Round One!
Most people just don't get it. They speak up alright, but they
merely repeat the
feminist concerns regarding Shari'a. Mind you, as of now at least the
long-budding but apparently never emerging men movement has not yet gone all the way and condemned the
implementation of the Shari'a for quite the same reasons as the feminists do.
The feminists fear that the establishment of equitable rules for property division
and other divorce issues as will be provided for through the Shari'a
threatens the rights gained by women, but that is about the only
propagandistic feminist anti-Shari'a hype the men movement doesn't
repeat. However, femprop went into high gear in response to the
IICJ's gain relating to Shari'a, the media engaged in an all-out, no-holds-barred
attack on the members of the IICJ, and nobody in the media or amongst
pro-family activists appears to come to the aid of the IICJ.
They just don't get it, and I doubt it that they will get the more
obvious points that
Eeva Sodhi's analysis of femprop tactics identifies,
About 31% of all female victims of violence in 1997 were attacked by
a spouse, compared with only 4% of all male victims of violence. As a
result, 88% of spousal assault victims were women.
That is one of the cheapest propaganda tricks imaginable (the use of
impeccable calculations performed on misleading or falsified "research"
data without providing the data on which the calculations were
the feminists have been using it all along and with great success, without
anyone ever being able to put up an effective defence, let alone that
society should speak up in unison against such abuses and
misrepresentations of statistics. The femprop steamroller would just
flatten everything anyway. Still, why is it
that society in general and specifically the men movement don't at least
rejoice a little when some men, even if those are Muslims, gain a major
victory against feminism and against femprop?
The function of propaganda is, for example, not to weigh and ponder
the rights of different people, but exclusively to emphasize the one
right which it has set out to argue for. Its task is not to make an
objective study of the truth, in so far as it favors the enemy, and then
set it before the masses with academic fairness; its task is to serve
our own right, always and unflinchingly.
Adolf Hitler, Mein Kampf, Chapter VI
That is no different than to state, as Eeva Sodhi identified in
the examples she cited in her analysis of femprop,
...develop strategies to circumvent the potency of neutrality as a
core bureaucratic value and transcend levels of government and ideology
to co-ordinate and co-operate strategically across government levels.
The integration of gender equality analysis into the research and
evaluation work of the Department implies a departure from traditional
research methodology. It does not start with a premise of neutrality,
nor limit its investigation to sex disaggregated data. A gender research
approach begins with womens experience as they [the feminists] see it.
The feminists don't deserve any credit for aping Hitler so religiously,
but Hitler should be given credit for one thing. He was more honest and
not nearly as mealy-mouthed as the feminists are about how to lie
Since the great advances of radical feminism in the 1960s, society and the men movement had
four decades to create a major
advance like the one that the IICJ now created within the space of two
months, but they still have not managed to recognize the need to unite.
That the supporters of families and the opponents of feminism will be united is no more likely than that it is possible to herd cats.
The differences between liberal activists and Muslims are obvious. The
Muslim activists have a unifying mission and belief, while liberals have
only the light of feminist and homosexualist ideology to guide themselves
by. Other than that, liberalism is about individualism, about
self-centeredness, about self-serving activism, about subjectivity and
relativism; it is not about unity whose foundation would by necessity be
absolute and universal moral standards the very antithesis of
Certainly, many anti-feminist activists don't want to be drawn
the light of feminist ideology, but they happily go where the light of
feminist "enlightenment" shines (which is usually a battleground that the
feminists carefully picked to engage men in), and they love to sun
themselves in that and anything else that is liberal. The list is too long
for this, but a unifying morality for men or society is not part of it. Yet, that is
the only thing that provides a chance of saving anything, anyone and our
society. The Shari'a and the IICJ may just be the life saver
we need. I don't see anyone else even looking for one.
Most people don't get that either. On account of that, we will continue
to founder in femprop and choke on it until maybe someone like the IICJ
shows us the right way out of the wilderness of the chaotic immoral
liberal morass we got
ourselves mired in.
