Remember, folks: whenever a woman says "die for me because you are a man," just look her in the eye and say "my body, my choice."

It's Official

I'm now a Senior Editor at A Voice for Men.

I've become one of those "Crusaders!"  I've never been politically active; how the hell did that happen???  Two and a half years ago I started reading blogs for research.  The plan was to maybe write a novel, a project to occupy my mind through the transition into my newly "empty nest."  I started out in the Cop/Military/2nd Amendment community, because I wanted a better grasp of how men think, and I kept bumping into the "men's" community; that darn Cappy Cap kept linking to interesting articles written by interesting men!  I then spent months immersed in relationship discussions at Dalrock's place, and his articles are still at the top of my "to read" list, although I no longer spend as much time in the comments section.  I now have at least a dozen books about men's issues, and I donate money to a handful of "Manosphere" sites:

...even when I disagree with the authors and/or the commenters.  These are voices that I believe should be heard.

I think my primary focus at AVfM is going to be "outreach" (Why not?  That's what I did as a bookmobile driver, and I guess I'm pretty good at it) in the form of email campaigns.  Not only will I be calling, faxing and emailing "government officials" and the press regarding individual cases, I will be emailing ordinary citizens to inform them of misandric corruption in their own communities.  And of course I'm going to gather my courage and start doing some "poster runs" - there are a LOT of college campuses (and other community bulletin boards) within a couple of hours' drive!  Unfortunately I will probably have even less time for my personal blog, but I'm still reading the 200+ sites I follow!

p.s.  If you would consider volunteering to do some very tedious work on a few email campaigns, please speak up!

  3. Dear Ms McCarley,
    Congratulations on your appointment. You will do a superb job. I'm in the midst of moving to a new address, so crazy busy right now, so not much time to comment much this week.
    Good luck.

  4. Congrats Suz but don't get involved with all the whining over there, that's definitely something that I've always liked about your writing and something that needs to be addressed on that site.

    1. It's an issue we're trying to address. It's hard to find a balance between "victim politics" and giving a voice to genuine victims. We know full well we're never going to satisfy everyone...
