Discuss psych of women
The Fathers’ Manifesto http://fathersmanifesto.net/ (Links to an external site.) is an anti-feminist website oriented toward fighting feminism, ending affirmative action, expelling African Americans and Jews from the U.S., and restoring responsible fatherhood. The website is virulently racist as well as sexist, presenting muddled, emotional thinking. This site presents a great deal of “research” to demonstrate that feminism is the cause of many of the problems in modern society. An analysis of their information would make an interesting exercise in critical thinking concerning research and the interpretation of statistics. Their site includes many position papers and collections of statistics with many conclusions that provide good opportunities for critical thinking. This particular section presents the argument that feminism has raised the mortality rate http://fathersmanifesto.net/feminismortality.htm (Links to an external site.) and another argues that the campaign to curtail drunk driving is misplaced; female drivers are more dangeroushttp://fathersmanifesto.net/madmadd.htm (Links to an external site.).
Reactions…? (For many of you, this might be difficult to look at — but it is a very good exercise, especially when you get to express yourself about the material presented.)
