Mens rights movement, of which encompasses mens rights activists.

What do you think they are? Consider

Cool. What rights we fighting for? The right to make $1.00 to $0.75 for the woman who dared to came out of the kitchen and do my job better than me? The right to control my own reproduction by buying a condom from a machine in a truck stop bathroom? What is our charter? Our mission statement? What rights do we need to fight for?

Do you presume me an MRA? I have no problem with it - I just don't participate in their social circles. They have a subreddit you can browse. There are a couple dedicated boards for mens rights, too.

I oppose dogma and falsehoods, thus I play the role of anti-feminist. I'm not an MRA.

I never presume shit. Do you presume to presume that I presumed you are an MRA? 'Cause Girly don't presume. .... But I do want my man rights back. What are they again?

I am curious, what part of feminism is dogma and faisehood to you? Is it a specific group of feminists or any specific part of what you consider to be feminism? What do you consider feminism? Is it different to you according to culture? Do you think it is not needed any longer?

I'm a bit embarrassed just by association of being a human being. Fortunately, we're probably not being watched by creature more intelligent than ourselves.

This new "Feminism" seems to be mostly comprised irrational young liberal women. Their agenda does not seem to be promoting equal rights for women. It seems to be insanity. If you don't know what I'm talking about, then please look through a few articles of one of their more popular ezines.

http://everydayfeminism.com/

It is not just a few crazies making youtube videos: though there is not shortage of that either.







It's gotten so stomach-turningly rotten that there are groups popping of which women can (and apparently do) join to show their contempt of this brand of feminism. https://www.facebook.com/WomenAgainstFeminism/

So - what the fuck, Chuck? Why did this happen, and what's your opinion?


Just asking to be clear.

Is this question USA related or world related?

It's definitely fueled, or at least fostered on the internet first and foremost. The most prominent of these nutjobs are from America, Canada, the UK, and Australia, as far as I've seen. I'm sure there are supporters from other corners of the world, but it seems to be Western phenomenon. I invite others to correct me as I'm not an expert and this is not my scene.

The custody system, for one, is heavily biased in favor of women. Smartass

I do not know anything about this,and am curious ... I looked online a little to see what gender bias occurs in family courts during divorce- did not find anything worthwhile- what do you have to show me?

How so? Most opt for joint custody.

I really do believe that whoever is in the best interest of the children should be the bar.

It shouldn't be about the father or the mother, it should be what's best for the kids. I've seen too many times the kids get stuck in a virtual tug of war between people they shouldn't have to pick between.


But as if to knock me down, reality came around
And without so much as a mere touch, cut me into little pieces

Patriarchy theory. Wage gap (as caused by sexism.) God of the gaps fallacies ("disparity thus sexism.") Childish behavior like going to mens advocacy meetings, (or any meeting that has a prominent MRA speaking at it) and screaming at them with megaphones.

I'm speaking about people, though. I oppose dogma and falsehood in people, and many (seemingly all) feminists are people that hold dogma and falsehoods.

Look at the past 4 pages here:

You have a group of people (RoK) who reject another group (MRM.) They don't identify as, and indeed oppose the MRM. They are a group that exists due to the common interest of being traditional conservatives and pick up artist; not discussing mens rights.

They are conflated. People so eager to be wrong if only it helps the narrative applaud in droves; "Gotcha! Looks like the MRM really are scum!"

That's why I despise feminism. It's a religion, plain and simple. Feminists hate facts.
