    Lifetime Tv: A Radical Feminist Lobbying Machine?

    While Don Imus is being thrashed within an inch of his career for making neanderthal comments about the Rutgers Women’s Basketball team, and the real victims of the Duke Rape Case have finally been identified, radical feminists at Lifetime Movie Channel are committing acts of social violence against men that are far worse.
    Lifetime TV (also known as Lifetime Movie Network) has become a major socio-political mouthpiece for promulgation of the sexist agenda of radical feminism. LMN’s show schedule is loaded with sexist and myopic “documentaries” about abused women.
    Some of LMN’s recent hate programming includes “Every Nine Seconds,” “If Someone Had Known,” “Broken Silence,” “The Promise,” “Dangerous Intentions,” “Dangerous Child,” “Fighting the Odds,” “Final Justice,” “A Life Interrupted,” “Lies Of The Heart,” “The Stranger Beside Me,” “Bastard Out Of Carolina,” and “Her Desperate Choice.” Not one of LMN’s shows honestly presents the true facts of domestic violence or holds women responsible for the half of domestic violence they do initiate. [1]
    LMN goes beyond broadcasting unsupportable broad beliefs about men and husbands. It is also a major lobbying mouthpiece of the radical feminist machine.
    The week of March 16th, LMN is fronting a series of events at the National Press Club in Washington D.C., apparently to scare or fool Congress into passing the International Violence Against Women Act (I-VAWA). I-VAWA is an illicit scheme intended to directly entitle feminists at the United Nations. Global feminists intend to use taxpayer dollars to force CEDAW [2] and its array of Marcusian socialist agenda on the United States as well as the rest of the world.

    I watch lifetime everyday.
    In fact, I've learned about 99 ways to protect myself from a man.
    I could burn his bed when he sleeps if he abuses me, whack off his member if he cheats on me, drive through his front door and shoot him and his new wife if he puts me through a helacious divorce ... and more.

    The channel is very educational. And helpful.


    Rest in Peace to my best buddy and baby, Buster ~ He crossed the Rainbow Bridge on Jan. 3, 2011. I miss you, Buster and love you with all my being.

    I always liked to watch the movies on LMN until my husband pointed out to me that most of these movies portray men in a negative light and women as helpless victims.

    Oh come on, without LMN Melissa Gilbert, Melissa Joan Hart, Tori Spelling and half the cast of Melrose Place would not have a career! This is the network that always has room for cheesy C-list actors!
    BTW, I call it the CMQ network, Cheesy Movie Queens!

    Obviously, your husband never sits through the entire movie. The last act is always about the female victim fighting back and gaining victory over her attacker.

    The article with which this thread was started is patently ridiculous. LMN only stands out because almost every other movie made in the past 30 years features a helpless-but-young, thin and pretty damsel in distress who has to be rescued by the "hero" from the "villain." But not before a series of soft porn shots of her bruised and bloody body.

    Lifetime movies may not be sophisticated, but at least the women in them get to be "actors" in their own lives. They don't just sit and suffer and wait for Bruce Willis.

    Don't forget Judith Light, Meredith Baxter Birney, Jacyln Smith, Kate Jackson and Tracey Gold!!
    I saw them each at least three times last week ... yes, EACH!!!

    Why thank you!


    I actually love Lifetime, to be honest. My boyfriend watches it with me, too. We're addicts. More than half are based on true stories.

    Right now, I am not watching Lifetime though
    We're watching City of Angels on cable.
    I am about to cry
    This has to be the worst ending in movie history .... great storyline, terrible ending. How could she die? That just ruined everything.

    My husband was channel surfing and I was watching (excuse not to work.) Flipped to a scene of a young woman jogging in the woods.

    "Hmm, what's this movie?"

    "It's Lifetime..." he said.

    "Never mind, she's going to be kidnapped, attacked, or killed in just a minute. "

    Flip!

    Lifetime is uber soap opera. Unwatchable even when I have had three glasses of wine!
