Here I am not talking about man, as in mankind, but men, i.e. males.
In the German state of Bavaria, children of the advanced secondary schools, aged 13-14, are required to take a reading comprehension test. The text used to do this is a report about climate change titled: “Ist der Klimawandel ein Mann?” (Is Climate Change A Man?)” Hat-tip German blog site info.kopp-verlag.de.
The main message of the text is that men, with their macho lifestyles, produce far more CO2 than women and thus the planet is suffering because of it. The text cites scientific studies (from women) and presents claims made by the studies as fact.
The text begins:
Is climate change a man?
Steaks and cars, both as big as possible. That is – precisely typical male. ‘Thus climate change is a man.’ This is how provocatively Ines Weller, a professor in Bremen, formulated her arguments: On average men eat more meat and drive swankier, fuel guzzling cars, preferably fast. In the end, both increase the global emission of CO2. What’s worse, says Weller, is that men often do not want to change their behavior. Therefore the contribute more to global climate change than women. Women eat more fruit and vegetables and drive mostly small, fuel-saving cars and they drive less kilometers each year. They use, Weller says, public transportation considerably more often.”
That’s just the first introductory paragraph. Right from the start children here learn that men are worse for the environment, are more wasteful, and they are unwilling to change. It gets worse. The text continues:
Gotelind Alber, environmental expert and physicist, confirms the Bremen study almost completely. In addition one could say that women, even though they contribute less to climate change, are often hit harder by its impacts. This is especially true for women in poorer countries, where they are busy with providing for the family. And that will become increasingly more difficult as environmental conditions become more acute.”
Not only are men being made responsible for climate change, but they are also getting blamed for the hardships women in poor countries have to endure.
Men drive bigger cars
The text then asks just how much is the contribution to climate change made by men and women. This is a difficult question to answer, the text says. This is why the researchers studied single-person households. The text provides some results:
On average male single households produce more CO2 than female single households. In Sweden, for example, its a plus of 30%. Namely Swedish men almost always drive the bigger car. That was the case for more or less every European country, said Alber.”
Men eat more climate-killing meat
The German children learn from the text that men’s eating habits are also posing a big problem for the climate and environment.
And how does it look with nutrition? Studies conducted by an Austrian environment institute have shown that more than 20% of global CO2 emissions come from the production and transport of foodstuffs. The biggest share here is clearly from the production of meat. Studies further show that men eat far more meat than women. The ‘beef calculation’ made by climate experts yields: The production of one kilogram of steak alone causes 36.4 kilograms of CO2. Thus also in this area men appear to be the climate violators.”
The fourth paragraph of the text serves as a fig leaf in an attempt to hide the text’s obvious attack on the male gender, adding that women are producing more CO2 in their consumption of milk products, cosmetics and clothing. But in total, men are much worse.
The text ends with:
Moreover: women think differently than men; they tend to be more open to doing something for the overall public good. Women, who are more often there for the family than men, are used to thinking of others,’ says Alber. Men on the other hand are environmentally conscious when it does not cost anything.”
Clearly the text conveys that men are less desirable than women, and that they are more to blame for the world’s ills. But this is not to say that the world would be a better place without men. The real message is: “The world would be a far better place if women ran it. Men would be better serving as their slaves. 🙂 The environmental movement is not a war on humanity – it’s a war on men.
German blog sites react to the text
Gerhard Wisnewski of Kopp online here writes:
The indoctrination in German schools is already well advanced and no longer even holds back with with-hunting propaganda. […] here kids are learning that the world would be much better without men. […] this is all about pure gender fascism. […] Our state ‘educational institutes’ don’t hold back in denouncing and defaming an entire half of the population.”
Dr. habil. Heike Diefenbach and Michael Klein here:
The blatant method in which hate is being funneled to German schoolchildren age 13-14, the perfidious manner in which distrust is being generated between the genders among the youth at German schools where they are being told: You as a male person are faulty, but you have the chance to purify yourself and to become unmanly, no longer borders on indoctrination. It goes far beyond that and reminds us more of the education camps where Nicolae Ceaușescu drilled his body guards. It reminds us of the initiation rites that Heinrich Himmler conducted in his dream palace Wewelsburg. […] This has absolutely nothing to do with the educating and upbringing the youth to be independent and critical members of their societies.”
Diefenbach and Klein add that this type of indoctrination is a “primitive form of manipulation and conditioning of the youth.”
Western education system hostile to males
Years ago it seemed that Germany’s advanced secondary education (Gymnasium) was about 50/50 male-female. Today I can’t help but notice that this has shifted markedly. In my son’s and daughter’s class it was more like two thirds girls and only one third boys. I don’t know what the situation is like in other European countries. It just seems that education system is becoming increasingly hostile to males. In the USA, if I’m not mistaken, more women are completing higher education than men.
So men, get back to the books and do your homework. Otherwise you may wake up one day soon finding yourself in shackles, in the servitude of women. Heck, I know plenty of men who today are perfectly content with that! 🙂
