Feminist Cover Up of Male Art Rejected by Public

Posted on 10/11/2018

Literal Cover Up

Notice to Customers

Visitors hoping to admire Lord William Armstrong’s celebrated collection at a National Trust exhibition were furious to find ‘room after room’ of artwork covered with white sheets.

The trust, which owns his Lordship’s former home of Cragside, covered up paintings and sculptures depicting men to highlight the ‘lack of female representation in art’.

It meant visitors who had paid up to £49 to view the famous collection found almost half of the paintings hidden behind white sheets, while sculptures of men had bags placed over their heads.

 

Thing Not to See

 

 

One said: ‘It was ridiculous. Whole corridors and room after room were completely covered.’

It was so unpopular that staff reportedly had to empty the visitor comments box three times a day because it was overflowing with complaints.

The trust initially defended the ‘thought-provoking exhibition’ but later admitted: ‘Sometimes it doesn’t work as we intended.’

 

CHIMES COMPLAINT TO NATIONAL TRUST

Dear Sir/ Madam

As a life member, I am absolutely appalled by the report of covering up art at Cragside because the creators were male.

Who on Earth thought that was ever a good idea? I would have hoped the NT was above identity politics and misandric behaviour that has become all too prevalent in many areas of life.

Your sincerely,

James Williams

REPLY FROM NATIONAL TRUST

Dear James

Thank you for your email.

Thank you for your email and for raising your concerns about our recent exhibition at Cragside.

As part of this year’s national programming ‘Women and Power’, which marks the centenary of some women being awarded the right of the vote, we are highlighting the history and important stories of the women who shaped the properties now in our care. The exhibition ‘The Great Cragside Cover up’ was a continuation of this programming, created by students from Newcastle University. The exhibition saw a small number of statues and portraits of men covered to help shine a light on the women who shaped Lord Armstrong’s work and home.

This temporary student exhibition (which ran from 13 October until 5 November) was not about censoring art or being politically correct, but to encourage people to look at the collection differently and to stimulate debate. We know it is not unusual for some people to dislike or disagree with what they see in contemporary art. We’re glad that our members and visitors have had the opportunity to debate this exhibition and to feed back their thoughts, which shows that our exhibition has been successful in drawing attention to the way our collections are presented and for highlighting the history of this important property.

We are always looking at ways in which we can bring the history and stories of our places to life for visitors and your feedback about the exhibition will help inform and shape our plans.

Conservation remains at the heart of what we do and thanks to the support of our members and donors, we are spending more than ever before on conservation work. Part of conservation, however, involves understanding and communicating why these places are important to protect so that future generations will continue to care for them.

I hope this is helpful and thank you for your support.

Kind regards

MGTOW – Middle School Boys Speak Out Against Feminism

Posted on 03/10/2018

Degradation of Males

After decades of degradation of boys and men of all ages is society starting to wake up to the vile abuse that men and boys endure from the mouths and behaviour of entitled females? Has toxic feminism turned females into loud mouthed narcissists?

The next generation of MGTOW men will likely emerge at an even younger age as the years go by. This belief was corroborated by a conversation that I had with my sister the other day as she was working at her job at a middle school. Middle school boys were asked about their frustrations with the girls at the school. A MGTOW moment ensued. #hoodiesup

Shit a few years ago there was a kid making mgtow videos. They called him the son of sandman. I can’t remember his channel name but his message was on point. I remember when I was a kid I was aware of the gender double standards. The boy’s use to get top of the play set and yell no girls allowed repeatedly. The women teachers scolded and shamed us hard, giving us detention and making sure our moms knew that we didn’t respect women. The girls would do the same thing yelling no boy’s allowed and those same teachers would walk by and give them the nod of approval. Boys even in kindergarten already know the feeling of being the bad guy by default. I’m sure every guy had that female teacher or teachers that hated his guts for nothing more than just reasons.

I though it was bad in the 1980s when I was in middle school and it was. What these boys are going through today is simply Hell on Earth. I pulled my son out of public school and began to home school him by grade 3. By grade 3 the misandry and complete incompetence of the entirely female staff of his “teachers” was simply out of control. Every day I watched the fire in him fade a liitle more. Fast forward a dozen years and my son is now a happy, intelligent, well adjusted adult MGTOW, pulling down 5 figures and living comfortably. Home schooling was the only option these misandrist indoctrination barns left me with. It was also the easiest and the best thing I ever did. You’re welcome, son. Public school is no place for young boys and men.

My son at age 14 this year cane to me and said “dad, there’s no point in marriage.”. I was “what do you mean?”. He was went on to say “well look at you, you work, have us full time, do all the cooking and cleaning and even did it all when you were married to mom. Women don’t do anything.”. I was floored. He figured this out in his own. Part of me does wish I could find a decent woman to be ina relationship with. No not marry. I will never give a woman that much power again. But I do wish my son could see a healthy relationship between a man and a woman.

 

 

Janet Bloomfield: Preparing Boys for War

Posted on 21/03/2018

 

Vox Day has a post that begins with an aphorism: good fathers hope their sons know peace, but prepare them for war. This is one of those moments when I truly love and yet loathe the internet. Day’s post leads to the Federalist, where Jesse Kelly writers about teaching his son to handle guns responsibly,…
