Men are worthless — pity mothers

Men are worthless — pity mothers is not an odd statement, regarding the discovery of the body of a dead soldier, just a boy, after it had been covered by ice for almost 100 years. It is a common reaction, when observers express their sadness caused by the loss of lives, not in relation to the fallen boy soldiers but to the pain that the mothers of the boys who died must have felt.

“Dr Nicolis, who watched the autopsy of the most recent bodies, told MailOnline: ‘It was very emotional. The first moment I looked at the boy I thought about his mother, who would have seen him for the last time and never heard from her young son again.'”

It is speculation that their mothers may have mourned on account of the uncertainty over having lost their sons.  The pain felt by the fathers of the fallen doesn’t matter, I guess, although that is speculation, too, although with far greater conviction.  After all, it’s not just that men don’t matter, people don’t want them to matter.  To deny that fathers may feel pain over the loss of their sons makes it certain.

What are such speculations based on? Do the pains of the boys who died not matter? Boys will be boys, and as they are predestined to die painful deaths, no need to mention that they had been the primary victims, that they had suffered? Fathers will be fathers, and they don’t matter, as they feel no pain when they die and, anyway, they are incapable of mourning the losses of their sons?

Angry Harry had a pretty good take on that.

Warriors of the White War emerge from their frozen tomb

Almost 100 years after losing their lives in ferocious First World War battle, melting ice reveals the bodies of the fallen.

Frozen in time: Mummified remains of two teenage Austrian soldiers were found in the Presena Glacier in 2012. Dr Franco Nicolis, Director of the Office of Archaeological Heritage in Trentino, blamed global warming
My note: Glacier ice flows downhill. How fast it flows depends on a number of things, one of which is that a warm climate may cause more snow to fall on a given glacier. —WHS

“Ah yes. Those were the days when the women had it worse.

… so much so, apparently, that while tens of thousands of British men were being killed on the battlefields every month, the Suffragettes were disrupting the British war effort by smashing windows, firebombing homes and engaging in acts of civil disobedience because, apparently, women were being hard done by compared to men.

And they were also handing out white feathers, signifying cowardice, to men who were not wearing military uniforms.” —Angry Harry

This is what Hillary Clinton expressed about that men are worthless:

“Women have always been the primary victims of war. Women lose their husbands, their fathers, their sons in combat. Women often have to flee from the only homes they have ever known. Women are often the refugees from conflict and sometimes, more frequently in today’s warfare, victims. Women are often left with the responsibility, alone, of raising the children.” — Hillary Clinton, in a speech at the First Ladies’ Conference on Domestic Violence, San Salvador, El Salvador, November 17, 1998

The point made by Hillary Clinton, namely that men are worthless (or not worth enough), was made even more forcefully by Louise Arbour, former Canadian Supreme Court Justice.  She was then involved in the persecution of Bosnian war criminals at the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague.  She commented on the mass murder of Croatian men:

“My mental image of a mass grave was that it would be more of a trench, where the bodies would be lined up almost in file,” she recalled last week. “But these bodies were thrown together indiscriminately in a hole. Then I noticed their clothes. They were young men, and the first thing I thought about was their mothers.” Arbour is a mother of three herself, although “it would be too corny, too sentimental, to suggest that you go back to work suddenly fired up. But it made the tragedy very human, and that’s not something you get here in the office every day. I watched the bodies come out of the ground and it was like they were coming alive again. They were demanding to be identified. They were demanding,” she said, and there was not even a hint of sentimentality in her voice, “that their mothers be told.” (Full Story —2018 08 13: The link is now broken.)

There you have it, from an ‘impartial’ source, Louise Arbour, former Canadian Supreme Court Justice, involved in the persecution of Bosnian war criminals at the International War Crimes Tribunal in The Hague: men are worthless.
