  1. My name is Svetlana Voreskova. I am from Rostov on Don in the Russian Federation. I Live now in Dublin Ireland. I work as a teacher of history and languages in a college near Dublin.

    I used to think that feminists were just pathetic, insecure attention seekers who would stage petulant public hissy-fits when anyone said anything they did not approve of. After a horrible incident involving someone close to me however, I experienced the true depth of the vitriolic hatred that is at the heart of the feminist movement.

    Since then I have been studying feminist literature and investigating various feminist groups mostly in Ireland and the UK. I have attended feminist seminars and events and have even reduced myself to engaging in some of their infantile public protests. I certainly know more about feminist theory and doctrine than most feminists do as is confirmed whenever I find myself debating one of them.

    I live in a country where I enjoy equal rights and equal opportunities under the law. I am a strong, independent and educated woman. I don’t need whining feminists claiming they speak for me. If someone commits a crime against me then I will go to the police. If someone says something that offends me then I will either respond, or I will behave like an adult and get over it.

    I am tired of members of the most privileged, pampered, cosseted demographic in the history of human civilisation constantly whining about how oppressed they are, and it annoys me when these people claim to speak for all women. They do not.

    Far from being strong, empowered women demanding equality, feminists are weak, insecure people who cannot handle equality.

      • Strong, independent women don’t need feminism and special ‘treatment’ via work quota’s etc to succeed anymore. We are strong enough to succeed without it now. Feminism has done its job very successfully – we have the vote, property rights, rights to equal education etc Today it has no more useful function other than to seek petty squabbles and imagined inequalities to justify its continued existence and has morphed into a man and children hating ideology.

        • Al those are the perfect words for a campaign and a positive movement for women and men alike! I wonder if we started one how many could we get to support it? I smell success in the offing.

          • It is worth a try, modern feminism is an insult to capable, intelligent women, who as you say are’ free’ and do not feel oppressed nor do they wish to oppress men, whom they are rather attached to!! It is a positive slogan, rather than a negative one, saying we have something of value to celebrate and preserve, rather than whining about something we claim we do not have.

            • Thanks, Vicki
              That was my intent. I like women, and agree that the feminist manifesto is deeply insulting to women.
              I admire strong and independent women, and renounce my membership in the Patriarchy, in favour of just being a member of the human race! You are welcome to use my “positive slogan” anywhere and any way you wish.
              A strong and independent woman doesn’t need Feminism; she is already free.
              Regards

    • Svetlana, I have been a follower of yours on medium for some time. I think you have important ideas and are good at articulating and substantiating them. You need a wider audience and I think a youtube channel would help you to reach more people. I realize this costs money but would happily be your first subscriber and I imagine many of your other followers on medium would support you in this.

    • Glad I found you again! Nasty Medium. They have lost one more and I have religated them to a status of irrelevant.

    • Hi Svetlana
      Did you get banned from Medium? If so that is evil/stupid of them, and I won’t be the only one to follow you to WordPress.
      Regards

    • Hi, Svetlana! I sought you out specifically because even though I call myself a feminist, I agree with about half of what you say about feminism. I agree with you that mainstream feminism doesn’t represent women and in fact insists on victimizing us further. I sought you out because if Medium banned you as it looks like they did, that was so many levels of wrong… Wanted to show my support and keep following you (unlike many women who identify as “feminist,” I actually enjoy reading counterpoints).

      • Hi Jenny. I have not been on this blog since a long time. It was my first time to write online when I set it up, and I am frankly quite embarrassed by what a poor blog it is. Anyway it is nice of you to visit here. I know that we agree on many things and we disagree on other things. That is normal and I do respect your writing on history and your habit of being polite even when you do not agree. I don’t know if I will try to salvage this blog or maybe build another better one; but I hope that we can keep in touch either way.

        • hi Svetlana,

          I just want to say thank you for all the time and effort that goes into your articles / responses. I learned a lot from you and really hope that you can find another platform to reach many people. Your work is very valuable and I really believe that the world needs you. I don’t have a way with words, but may be of help on the IT side if you need it. All the best, and please keep sharing your insight.

        • Svetlana, sorry to hear you are suspended on Medium but I did say before that was too small a platform for you and that your insightful ideas that combine history and biology are too well argued and important not to be heard. As you can see by all the comments here, your followers on medium have tried to locate you elsewhere and agree. Keep going, you articulate the ideas of many ordinary people who want a normal life – happy relationships with the opposite sex and strong families.

          • Thanks for your kind words Vicki. I will definitely keep going. I just need to decide where to do it. I don’t know if this old blog is worth saving or if I need to find another platform but I will definitely link you wherever I decide to go.

        • Hi Svetlana
          We followed you here when you disappeared from Medium. After posting this address on Medium, I noted that it hadn’t been used since 2013, so I’m glad to see you still reply. After some of your opponents said you had been banned for personal attacks on Progressive members, I recovered what I could from Google cache, and posted it here: https://medium.com/@abs4fr/svetlanas-insults-744a78890236
          I hope you don’t mind me republishing your words, in your defence.
          Regards
          Al

          • Hi Al.
            Thanks for the supportive article you posted on Medium. It is irritating to see lies printed about you when you cannot respond so I do appreciate your attempt to set the record straight on my behalf. I don’t know if I will try to refurbish this old blog or not so I will think about it for a while.

            • Hi Svetlana
              No pressure, but Let me know what you decide. I’d like to follow your unique insights if I can. When you were banished, it felt like losing a friend. Glad to make contact again.
              Regards
              Al

            • Svetlana
              It has actually been several articles on https://medium.com/@abs4fr/
              I have noticed that I have received no notifications from Medium since 17/03/2018, after reposting as many of your posts as I could rescue from Google cache on 15/03/2018. I suspect that this is the first step in banning me. Did you ever export your Mediun posts to a zip file? I have which means I will keep my words even after being banned.

            • Hi Svetlana
              This post went directly to the CEO of Medium:
              Medium’s role
              “We’re proud of Medium’s role in promoting intelligent viewpoints and new ideas no matter who they’re from.” Tell that to Svetlana Voreskova, banned from Medium for her uniquely well expressed conservative views on social issues, delivered with reason and humour. I think her crime was to have over 1000 followers while saying things like “The feminist manifesto is deeply insulting to women.”
              For a woman to be banned from Medium on International Women’s Day because some Social Justice Warrior disagreed with her exercise of free speech goes well beyond irony. I have viewed her posts and the most “offensive” comment I have seen was this:
              “I live in a country where I enjoy equal rights and equal opportunities under the law. I am a strong, independent and educated woman. I don’t need whining feminists claiming they speak for me. If someone commits a crime against me then I will go to the police. If someone says something that offends me then I will either respond, or I will behave like an adult and get over it.
              I am tired of members of the most privileged, pampered, cosseted demographic in the history of human civilisation constantly whining about how oppressed they are, and it annoys me when these people claim to speak for all women. They do not.
              Far from being strong, empowered women demanding equality, feminists are weak, insecure people who cannot handle equality.”
              Telling the truth to feminists does risk offending them, but this is well within the bounds of civil debate. If you believe what you say about promoting intelligent viewpoints and new ideas no matter who they’re from, you should find out who banned Svetlana, fire them, and restore Svetlana’s access.
              Regards

                • I’ve since left Medium and deleted my account. Liberals have ruined it with their garbage and fascist handling as a whole.

                  • Quite right. Ever other article seems to be about how bad “dear white people” are written by semi articulate pseudo intellectual purveyors of “race theory” or just plain old fashioned racists pretending to be SJW’s. No point being there when pretty much the best contributor appears either to have been suspended or given up….I’m talking about Svetlana of course!!

    • Amazing site, great writing Svetlana! Watching monkeys, bees or ant colonies you can get an idea of the social structure, but it is harder with humans because we are in the middle of it all.

      • Yesterday I spent time writing a response to Svetlana on Medium that was published. I then paid $50 for a year’s membership of Medium. Today I couldn’t access the articles because Svetlana’s account has been suspended. Medium won’t tell me why and I have requested a refund of my $50.

      • Hi Russel. Yes I got banned again. This time they managed to somehow find “incitement to violence” in a silly joke between Louis Weeks and I. There was nobody else on the thread and we were not “targeting” anyone and the conversation was so ridiculous it was quite obviously a joke.

        • You can’t joke with those who have no sense of humor. I don’t know why you go back to that garbage site but there has to be something different. You try Reddit?

        • You’re just a lot of trouble aren’t you? 🙂

          Sorry to hear you got banned. Many of us miss your posts and responses; we’d login and look forward to see who was getting a history lesson that day.

          I’ll pay you a compliment: You’re one of the reasons my Medium membership is worth it. If one or two others (mainly in tech) leave, I’ll be gone too.

          Will keep checking this site to see where you eventually land. I’ll say this, for the time and effort you spend in creating content or responding to other’s at Medium, you can easily expand this site to reach your objectives. Soon others will show up here, link from other social sites to content here and you’re on your way. Medium is not Facebook; people have options.

          All the best Svetlana, we miss you.
          Russel

        • I was banned too but they won’t give a reason. They sent me a generic email saying they don’t allow

          content that promotes violence or hatred against people based on characteristics like race, ethnicity, national origin, religion, disability, disease, age, sexual orientation, gender, or gender identity.

          I pointed out that they allow people to post things like this..

          ” If I were black.I would hate white people.I would hate them with fire and brimstone in my belly” or..

          “I DON’T NEED GUN CONTROL LAWS, I NEED WHITE PEOPLE LAWS”

          But of course they didn’t care. If you posted ” If I were white.I would hate black people.I would hate them with fire and brimstone in my belly”, or ” “I DON’T NEED GUN CONTROL LAWS, I NEED BLACK PEOPLE LAWS”they would ban you in a heartbeat but the people who post hatred against whites are never banned.

          Medium actually loves to promote violence and hatred, as long as it’s against white people and others who disagree with the far left agenda

          But the good news is, we now have time to start planning our wedding 🙂

  2. Мне нравится ваш новый сайт моего друга. Я подозреваю, что многие не будут. Говорить правду не пользуется популярностью. Тост за вас на Рождество.

    • Hi Alex I would be happy to answer any question about my blog but I could not find an email address to mail you. If you want you can just ask me whatever it is on this blog.

  3. Lana,

    I must say I enjoyed reading through all your articles, it is refreshing to see a strong, independent, and intelligent woman who has commen sense and logic on her side as well as a great sense of humor and witicism. WIth your permission, I’d like to direct folks over at A Voice for Men here in the US to link some of your articles; they are excellent reads and you seem to have a wealth of knowledge and experience on feminism that many others there could benefit from. Thanks again for your well written material, and I look forward to reading more!

  4. Hi Amanda.

    That blog is a result of a run in with some radical feminists. They put up a series of blogs using my name and my photo. They’re were several different ones casting me as a prostitute, a terrorist or a right-wing fanatic. They sent links to my employers and family. I managed to get most of them taken down but they keep popping up again.

    • Hi Lana.

      Thank you so much to answear.

      I already suspect that, because is very inconsistent. I follow your scripts and one feminist put this link to me. I ask directly to you to stop this dirty defamation. Sorry by my english. I’m a Italian woman sick of feminists and its good to see another inteligent woman debunk the feminists lies.

  5. I read where you and a male friend of yours on exp…. project threatened to use weapons on other members there that are feminst.

    • Her feminist enemies have posted fake blogs to damage Svetlana’s reputation. If it doesn’t sound like Svetlana, it probably isn’t Svetlana.

  6. Respected ma’am i like whatever you wrote in your blogs.
    Ma’am I have a small request may i please ask you for one help to me please ma’am may i say?

  7. hi svetlana – are you still aound? and blogging somewhere?
    It’s so great that there are still women who can see form a holistic point of view rather than just through the eyes of ones sex

  8. Just stumbled across some of your writings. Undoubtedly some women have had horrible experiences. However, confusing “assault” with “inappropriate” so that everyone can be included is counterproductive. At this point, I can’t imagine even trying to date someone. What a nightmare.

    So refreshing to see well written, thoughtful answers in the face of shrill and strident closed minds.

    You go, girl.

  9. Greetings Svetlana,
    Since you were banned from Medium, I have been searching for other forums where you might still be writing. I am pleased to have discovered this one.

    I have always enjoyed your writing. Your stories about your life growing up in Soviet Union are particularly interesting to me.

  10. Hi Lana!

    Disappointed you’re off of Medium. Really enjoyed your writing there. I’m TheLizard there and on Twitter.

    Please let me know if you settle on another place to write! I’ll follow and support you.

  11. Banned once again?! I was reluctant to leave Medium because I didn’t want to be part of an echo chamber and no “progressive” will ever write on a media outlet, like Republic Standard, that grants equal voice to conservative points of view. But I also do not want to be part of an outlet, like Medium, that purposefully stifles the most thoughtful writing simply because it so effectively debunks much of the SJW narrative (meaning you, among others). Have you found another outlet for your writing? If so, I would greatly appreciate a heads up.

    BTW, I write under the moniker ewrxroads, maintaining some degree of anonymity due to previous identity theft as well as my disfavored status among “progressives” who, as you know, make no secret of their willingness to use methods other than reason and discussion against those that oppose their ideas.
