Anti-Pornography Lecture - Part 1:
The lecture begins with 10 Main Arguments Against Pornography as excerpted from chapter 2 of Domination is Abomination: Man's Oppression of Woman by Dr. Catherine Mann, Psy.D. The lecture states simply that pornography harms women, men and children. Dr. Cat argues for the abolition of pornography in U.S. society as analogous to the abolition of slavery in U.S. history. Ultimately, porn is misogynist propaganda that graphically depicts female degradation in the service of male domination so as to maintain the social order of patriarchy and oppression. See drcatwoman.com for more info.
Anti-Pornography Lecture - Part 2:
This lecture begins with a discussion of Playboy magazine and the dehumanization process of turning women into bunnies. The lecture proceeds with statistics of sexual assault within families, of the percentage of sex workers who were assaulted in childhood, and of the phenomenon of repetition compulsion in survivors of trauma. Material comes from chapter 2 of Domination is Abomination: Man's Oppression of Woman by Dr. Catherine Mann, Psy.D. See drcatwoman.com for more info.
Mind Control Tactics:
This lecture discusses the tactics of mind control and brainwashing as practiced by male abusers and cult leaders, both of whom use nearly identical methodologies which have been absorbed through the oppressive culture of patriarchy. The 10 Main Methods of Male Abusers & Cult Leaders comes from chapter 3 of Domination is Abomination: Man's Oppression of Woman by Dr. Catherine Mann, Psy.D. See drcatwoman.com for more info.
This short video discusses the language of patriarchal culture which is centered in the male gender and phallus. For example, women are often greeted with the phrase 'hey guys,' and if someone is brave, we say 'that takes balls.' The video argues for women to take back the use of language with phrases referential and deferential to their own gender and culture, such as 'oh my goddess.' Material comes from chapter 3 of Domination is Abomination: Man's Oppression of Woman by Dr. Catherine Mann, Psy.D. See drcatwoman.com for more info.
THEORY OF OPPRESSION:
Dr. Cat's Theory of Oppression is outlined in her upcoming book titled Domination is Abomination: Man's Oppression of Woman, which is based on her dissertation for the doctorate of psychology. Dr. Cat spent over a decade researching studies from the past century in multiple disciplines including psychology, sociology, anthropology, history, feminist theory, and women's studies. Her new theory can be applied to members of all oppressed groups but focuses primarily on the experience of women in global culture. The theory states that oppression is systematically carried out on three separate levels of the body, mind and spirit. Assaults upon the body include physical and sexual violence such as battery, rape, and molestation; assaults upon the mind include indirect directives, covert hypnosis, mind control and brainwashing; assaults upon the spirit include the disparagement and destruction of spiritual practices and iconography relevant to the victim. If all three levels are methodically addressed, the oppression becomes total. The term used to define this condition is Totalism.
DOMINATION IS ABOMINATION: BOOK:
Chapter 2 (on the body) will examine sexual trauma & recovery, and includes the work of Judith Herman, the leading authority on PTSD and Complex PTSD (CPTSD), and of Linda Williams, who studied recovered memories of victims of sexual assault. Chapter 2 will also examine prostitution and pornography using the work of Laura Lederer, Andrea Dworkin, and other outstanding feminists. The chapter offers 10 Main Arguments against porn, including evidence that it incites men to commit acts of sexual violence against women & children, and that it is catalyzing an epidemic rise of sexual addiction in men.
ABOUT DR. CAT WOMAN:
Dr. Catherine Mann, a.k.a. Dr. Cat Woman, is thinking of changing her last name to 'Woman.' The very fact that she has not met a person with the last name of 'Woman' -- but many with the last name of 'Mann' -- speaks volumes about global culture. Dr. Cat has dedicated her life's work to examining the experience of women in a global culture of patriarchy, defined as "rule by the father." Her purpose has been to identify the means by which any oppressor dominates the oppressed & forces them to submit to his dictates. Although her Theory of Oppression can be applied to all oppressed groups, it focuses primarily on the experience of women.
Dr. Cat earned a B.A. in English with high honors from Princeton University, and an M.A. in English from Stanford University. Thereafter, she completed a Doctorate in Psychology. More at DrCatWoman.com
