New Book on Female Serial Killers – LADY KILLERS, by Tori Telfer


Unknown History of Misandry is pleased to announce that a diligent researcher/author and reader of our modest website has produced a series of columns based in part on cases which for the first time have been included in a female serial killer collection and now, in October 2017 has collected them in a book published by Harper-Collins.

The book, Lady Killers, includes these important cases which UhoM has brought to public attention as examples of Female Serial Killers: Lizzie Halliday, Elizabeth Ridgway, Oum-el-Hassen (“Moulay Hassen”), Alice Kyteler.

Tori Telfer has made an intelligent, if small, collection of 14 cases, dating from the fourteenth century to the twentieth. In addition to US and British cases there are Female Serial Killers from Egypt, France, Hungary, Morocco, Russia. It is regrettable, however, that among the numerous Eastern European Female Serial Killer rings of the mid-1800s through the mid-1900s, Tefler selected the only one that is well-known while dozens of like cases, equally interesting cases (from Hungary and surrounding regions) could have been related in its place.

Here is the list of Lady Killers with links to the posts on the same cases on UHoM. We’d like to point out that the Elizabeth Ridgway [old spelling] case is one of UhoM’s more important discoveries of a forgotten early Female Serial Killer case.



PS: And its extremely well-written.

The Great Equality Hoax - Exposed by Kurt Vonnegut Jr.


What on earth does the simplistic mantra of “equality” as it is used by the adherents of “social justice,” really mean?

“Social justice” is a collectivist concept, which is, in many ways the opposite of plain “justice,” which promotes the ethos of group guilt – just as so many collectivists of the past are recorded have done: in the spirit of social justice for “the public good,” of course, as exemplified by Joseph Goebbels (and his mustachioed pal), Pol Pot in his Khmer Rouge regime and the slave labor camps and the genocide of the Russian Socialists.

“Social justice” true believers are known for their promotion of the vague and undefined idea of “equality.”

Kurt Vonnegut knew the answer. He brilliantly explicated what the cryptic “equality” notion means in the minds of the collectivists who repeat the mantra, in alternately starry-eyed and scowling ejaculations. It was in 1961 that Vonnegut published his short story “Harrison Bergeron,” which provides us an accurate and crystal-clear picture of the paradise envisioned by the cult-followers of  the “equality” utopian philosophy.

***

Here is the first paragraph of the 2,185-word story:

“THE YEAR WAS 2081, and everybody was finally equal. They weren't only equal before God and the law. They were equal every which way. Nobody was smarter than anybody else. Nobody was better looking than anybody else. Nobody was stronger or quicker than anybody else. All this equality was due to the 211th, 212th, and 213th Amendments to the Constitution, and to the unceasing vigilance of agents of the United States Handicapper General.”

And here is a link to the full text, free online.

Half a century following Vonnegut’s prescient creation, Harrison Bergeron, we have the brilliant work of Neel Kohlhatkar, showing us the current stage of the intellectual and cultural decline dubbed so innocuously “equality.”

Franziska Tyka, Polish Bandit Queen - 1927


FULL TEXT: Berlin. – American women gangsters might well take lessons from Franziska Tyka, notorious Polish bandit.

The Bobbed Hair Bandit was a piker compared to her. But ambitious American women criminals who might like to receive instruction will have to wait. She has just been sentenced by the Criminal court Rybnkik, in Polish Upper Silesia, to seven years’ hard labor. It was proved that in the last five years she and her gang of about 20 men committed 31 robberies, and they are suspected of countless more.

Franziska was no ordinary robber chieftain. For her life was a pleasantly varied but pleasantly interwoven of love and loot, or, rather, loot and love. Franziska’s motto was “business first, pleasure afterward.” During the last ten years she and her gang were the terror of Upper Silesia, and she was both the terror and idol of her gang.

~ A False Halo. ~

A false halo of romance surrounds her crimes, which outshine the most imaginative efforts of the writers of the most lurid fiction. When Franziska stood before the judge in Rybnik she lifted her small soft hands – an alluring figure for all of her forty-one years – and begged for mercy for those of her band who were captured with her. Coquettishly throwing back her golden blond bobbed hair, she told him: “I committed all these robberies in the full confidence of the unshakable love of my men and in the belief that they were loyal to me to their death.”

Her life of crime began 22 years ago, when she was nineteen. She said she was driven to commit her first breach of the law. She conceived an intense hatred of society, which she indulged by her crimes. She led a life in which no demoralization was strange to her. Yet still she retains her feminine charm. No judge would have suspected, without the evidence submitted, that with these small and soft hands she had herself thrown the torch into peaceful farmhouses to start the fire which preceded the pillage.

Twenty men, between the ages of twenty and fifty, followed her command in the forests around Pless and Rybnik. A word from her and they would sally forth to attack and plunder peaceful settlements. The terror done, they would hasten back to their encampment. For ten years they worshiped her – her courage, her criminal brain and her sex. For Franziska had been mistress of them all in turn. That was her ultimate power over them.

~ Led Band in Person. ~

The fact was fully established at before she and her gang started on their raids, after all preparations were complete, she undressed completely and thus led her band to battle. Jealousy between the members of the band she kept down by feminine tact and kindness.

But fate at last overtook Franziska through one of her latest lovers, one of her gang who was fifty. For some time he believed he was unduly neglected by her. At last his jealousy drove him to betray her to the Polish police. Surrounded by a cordon of police and soldiers in their forest retreat, she and most of her band were starved into surrender.

With this capture the robberies around Pless and Rybnik have ceased. Those few of the band who have escaped have scattered to the four winds. Without their sweetheart and captain they are helpless. They are waiting impatiently the end of the weary seven years to come when she will be restored to liberty and to them. But will she be able to charm them seven years hence?

Catherine Muthoni, Accused Cannibal Spree Killer – 2015, Kenya


February 17, 2015, Korogocho, Nairobi, Kenya – Murder victims: Muthoni’s baby boy (1 week); neighbor’s children: Nyambura Gatei (4), Peter Gatei (10 days).

No news reports dating from after the arraignment of the suspect in early July 2015 have been found.

***

FULL TEXT (Jul. 9, 2015) – A woman accused of murdering and eating her son has denied the charges in a city court. Catherine Muthoni, 20, has been undergoing psychiatric evaluation for more than two months after she was accused of killing her son and two other children belonging. The court heard that Muthoni had attempted to strangle her aunt in their house following disagreements with her husband.She reportedly had just delivered the baby boy and had lived with her aunt for a few days. Police said that the Muthoni turned her anger on her son who was asleep after her aunt sneaked out of the house. She allegedly slit the toddler’s belly with a kitchen knife, ate his intestines and part of his heart before drinking his blood.

The accused is said to have gone to her friend Nelius Muthoni’s house where she killed her two children. Police arrived in time to save the Muthoni from an angry mob that was baying for her blood. She was arraigned in court on February 19, but was taken to Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital in Kayole after she appeared weak and unable to talk or walk without support.

The accused, according to doctors at the Mama Lucy Kibaki Hospital, used strange terms to communicate and recommended further psychiatric evaluation. Muthoni denied the charges and was remanded in custody until November 2, as she is also facing murder charges at another court.

Natalia Baksheeva, Russian Confessed Serial Killer – 2017


News reports appeared September 25, 2017 about the arrest of a cannibalistic serial killer couple in Krasnodar, Russia, Natalia Baksheeva, 42, a nurse at a military academy, and Dmitry Baksheev, 35. Neighbors reported that both were frequently seen in public in an intoxicated state.

Investigation of the pair began on September 11 when a discarded phone was discovered by road construction worker Roman Khomyakov containing gruesome photos of severed human body parts, including “photos of a man with different parts of a dismembered human body in his mouth,” according to the Russian Ministry of Internal Affairs. Police were able to identify the phone’s owner.A day after the phone’s discovery a bag containing dismembered, female believed to be Elena Vashrusheva, was discovered a military aviation school dormitory near the couple’s home located within a military base.

A Police raid on the couple's apartment building turned up over half-a-dozen body parts, canned flesh, body parts in saline solution, frozen meat (possibly human, and 'recipes' for cooking a human. In the courtyard and basement were additional body fragments.

“Dmitry Baksheev has reportedly confessed to two murders – that of the woman photographed on the phone and an additional 2012 killing.” Yet Natalia “has reportedly confessed to being involved in preying on, kidnapping, killing and eating at least 30 victims since 1999.”

Natalia had apparently cooked remains of victims into meat pies which she sold around the military academy.

“Women Hold Up Half The Sky,” it is said.


What does “Women hold up half the sky” mean? And where does this saying come from?

***

The saying is attributed to Mao Zedong (1893-1976), Chairman of the Chinese Communist Party. Although no documentary source has yet been identified, one scholar, Perry Link, asserts that the words appeared in 1968 in China (which was the most brutal period of the Communist China’s mass murders and tortures under the guise of the Glorious Cultural Revolution). “Historians believe somewhere between 500,000 and two million people lost their lives as a result of the Cultural Revolution.”

In the US, the phrase seems to have originated with a 1972 Communist Party paperback.


A good short overview pof the Cultural Revolution:
Tom Phillips, “The Cultural Revolution: all you need to know about China's political convulsion,” The Guardian, May 10, 2016 https://www.theguardian.com/world/2016/may/11/the-cultural-revolution-50-years-on-all-you-need-to-know-about-chinas-political-convulsion

***
In Wikiquotes editors’ notes it is wrote:

Perry Link, in An Anatomy of Chinese: Rhythm, Metaphor, Politics, notes that it should actually be "Women can hold up half the sky", Funü neng ding banbiantian 妇女能顶半边天, and says that it was said "apparently in 1968."

Also: “Haven't found any contemporary source, though it appears that the phrase was used in the early 1970s - for instance, 1975 publication from Beijing.-- [From: Wikiquotes, Talk page; Larrybob, Sep. 18, 2015]

Mao’s plan: “Our objective is to struggle against and crush those persons in authority who are taking the capitalist road... so as to facilitate the consolidation and development of the socialist system,” one early directive stated.

Frank Dikötter, the author of a new book on the period, says Mao hoped his movement would make China the pinnacle of the socialist universe and turn him into “the man who leads planet Earth into communism.” Tom Phillips, “The Cultural Revolution: all you need to know about China's political convulsion,” The Guardian, May 10, 2016

From the book Women Hold Up Half the Sky (1972):

To make a revolution, we will need to activate the entire working class and all progressive people in this country. Women make up half the people and only with the active participation and support of the greatest number of women can our revolution win victory. We seek to build a powerful women’s movement now – to answer the crying needs of women and to combat the discrimination and degradation that all women suffer under the capitalist system.

. . .

- Welcoming Speech by Micheal Klonsky Chairman of the October League International Women’s Day Celebration Los Angeles, March 11, 1972 -

On behalf of the October League, I would like to warmly welcome everyone to this International Women’s Day meeting which is being held to express our solidarity with the oppressed women of the world, who are heroically fighting against imperialism and its male supremacist policies and ideology.

International Women’s Day has become a great part of the revolutionary tradition of the working class around the world. This week in the Peoples Republics of China and Albania and other socialist countries, militant celebrations are taking place stressing the unity of men and women in the struggle against exploitation and oppression.

Female War Criminals


This is not a complete list, by any means. It attempts, however, to be more diverse than the typical list of female war criminals. There are many more German National Socialist Workers Party female war criminals than are listed here. Because Germany was defeated at war it was possible to conduct full investigation into war crimes. Such is not the case for Communist regimes such as People’s Republic of China, Soviet Union, North Korea and others, where archives have not accessible.
