    Now I know this isn’t my post – and it is by a man – but it is very good and I strongly recommend having a look at it.

    Men’s Rights Activism: A Tale Of Rampant Misogyny And Powerful Insanity


    He raises a number of issues about men’s rights activism and its misogyny.


    “The Men’s Rights movement seems to be born from the idea that feminism has turned all males everywhere into victims. As we all know, being a man is tough these days. Sure you get paid way more, have lower costs for health insurance, don’t need to worry about being attractive during a job interview, and can play whatever sports you like without needing a court case, but that certainly evens out. I mean, can a man show cleavage to get out of a speeding ticket? Nope! Take that, feminists!”


    He then goes on to talk about their activism around divorce and custody issues:

    “One branch of the Men’s Rights movement is an activist group of divorced dads called Fathers 4 Justice. Their aim is to stop courts from both making them pay child support, and keeping them from having custody of their children. The idea that their group’s cornerstone is wanting to see their kids and simultaneously not wanting to pay for their care is left suspiciously unmentioned. That said, who wants to pay for all the things they want? Wouldn’t everything be better if all the cool stuff in life was just free for everyone, all the time?”


    And then about male violence and rape:

    “They make the weak point that it’s sexist to frame rape as a male crime, but considering the fact that the overwhelming majority of rapes are committed by males, that’s kind of the equivalent of getting mad about someone saying all men who procure prostitutes just want sex. Some of them might very well just want to play a rousing game of Yahtzee with their hooker, but you’re only making yourself look like a dipshit for getting bent out of shape about it.”


    A worthwhile read.
