Why I Am A Men’s Rights Advocate

The Men’s Rights Movement is seen as a toxic group of sexist and misogynistic men who hate women and see any progress in feminism as a threat as they don’t want equality. However, these are false. To understand the men’s rights movement is like trying to understand a snowstorm, one snowflake at a time. The Men’s Rights Movement (MRA’s) campaign against the inequality for men that feminism and the media attempt to silence by spreading the well-accepted myth that males have all the power, are the most privileged and are the oppressors. These inequalities are issues facing men in the biased family court system, they are the majority of the homeless, the majority of suicides, the majority of drug addicts, the majority of the unemployed, the majority of school drop outs and the majority of those in prison. And when these issues are brought up, feminists either drown them out with the words “patriarchy” and “sexism” and “oppression”, typical buzzwords or blame men for those issues but won’t help to fix them.
Even though they, rarely, give MRA’s a platform to speak, in which all their points are ignored and are painted at sexists, they are also violently protested by feminists who have even resorted to violence to stop them speaking publicly. Funny how feminists say they are oppressed but when they protest, everyone is behind them, especially the media who say how amazing the “Slut Walks” and “Women’s Marches” are. But when men do the same, they are protected, labeled as sexists and ultimately shut down. They also spread lies about the men’s movement, saying how it’s been classed as a hate group which is a fabricated lie and say how violent they are and pro-rape, which again, completely fabricated.

Some of the best people to research about the men’s rights movement are people like Erin Pizzey, Dr. Warren Farrell, Paul Elam, Karen Straughan and The Honey Badgers. However, don’t expect any public appearances from them as they always get picketed, protested and shut down by feminists who wanna silence them, even feminist forms of media like ‘Ms.’ Magazine, encourage the protests. If they are just sexist liars, why not encourage them to speak so people could see their lies and expose them? Because what they say is truthful and logical and makes the argument for feminism almost pointless. And they don’t want that. To me, anyone deserves a platform to speak how they feel, whether its feminism or men’s rights, both can have a platform so when I see people wanting to silence another, it’s sickening to me.

Some issues that feminists either ignore or silence is that 95% of workplace fatalities are men, 4/5 suicides are men, more men are dropping out of higher education as 38% of college students are make in the US and is continuing to drop every year. 1 in 4 men experience physical violence by an intimate parter in their life time, men are sentenced to 63% longer prison sentences then women for the same crime and if you include prison, more men get raped then women. They are less likely to see a doctor, less likely to get health insurance, the pro-choice movement is exclusively for women as men almost have no say in that, and the family court system is heavily biased against men. And when feminists hear this, they simply say “Cry me a river and grow up” because they don’t care. They only care about women’s issues and about painting society as sexist and a patriarchy so more young women, uneducated on this issue, which believe it.

While society does see women as sex objects, it also sees men as success objects. People attack men for dating women for their bodies yet are more quieter when women date them for their money and power and if men are poorer or not very successful, they are seen as less desirable in society’s eyes. Also, they are seen as strong and brave, willing to sacrifice themselves. Like, on the Titanic, they had the infamous decision of “Women and children first” because men should sacrifice themselves for the women and children, even if they didn’t want to and even today, that practice still happens. In WW1, women gave men, like their father, brothers, uncles, and husbands, the white feather as a sign of cowardice if they didn’t go to the front lines to be slaughtered in the trenches. Because it’s almost like men are expendable, they’d rather send them to die because men are the protectors and if they didn’t wanna stay on a sinking ship in the middle of a freezing cold ocean or didn’t wanna get mowed down by German machine guns by the hundreds, you were no man, you were a coward.

One example of seeing men as expendable is Boko Haram, an Islamic terrorist group in Nigeria, who became well know after kidnapping over 200 girls from school. Politicians, celebrities, The United Nations and the media said that this group wanted to deny girls education, which sparked protests world-wide and started the popular hashtag #BringBackOurGirls. However, that was not the reason why they kidnapped those girls. It was for attention because, they aren’t against girls being educated, they are against anyone getting a western, secular or Christian education and, for a long time, they had slaughtered men and boys and let the women go and no one cared as the mass murders were barely reported. When they attacked villages and killed hundreds of men and couple of women, they were called “people” or “villagers”. And when they attacked school previously, they let the girls go by separating them and telling them to live by Allah, get married and have children. The boys were all burnt alive. And no one cared. And this wasn’t an isolated incident, this happened all the time and thousands of men and boys were killed, one year they killed 2,037 men and boys, and we only cared when the girls were kidnapped. That is what sparked them wanting to send aid, equipment, and resources to help find these girls and stop Boko Haram. Well. Maybe if they cared and did something the first time they struck, those girls would have been safe in their beds. But they didn’t. They didn’t bother with the campaign #BringBackOurBoys because they were already dead, so never mind. If those girls were boys, they wouldn’t have been kidnapped and sold into marriage or slavery, they’d be dead.

I mentioned before that 1 in 4 men are physically assaulted by an intimate partner in their lifetime and with women, its 1 in 3. So the numbers are very similar. In fact, in 2014, the CDC released a report revealing that 5.4 million men and 4.7 million women had experienced physical violence by an intimate partner within the past 12 months. However, physical violence is painted a women’s issue inflicted by men. In the US, there are over 2,000 women’s shelters which, combined, get $1.5 billion dollars in funding per year. Feminists say this is nowhere near enough shelters, which I do agree with as the numbers don’t reflect the demand. However, there is only 1 shelter for men, which was protested by feminists who saw it as cheapening violence against men. And for a long time, there were no shelters for men and no women’s shelter would help men. The first women’s shelter was opened in 1971 in Cheswick, London by Erin Prizzey. However, she saw that 63% of the women she helped had been just as violent towards their husbands and violent towards their children. She said this was an issue about violence in their childhood and not a men’s problem and even wanted to make a shelter for men. When she announced that, she was kicked out of her refuge and banned from all feminist conferences and other refuges and even had to leave the country due to the death threats she and her family received. Feminists have turned physical violence against women into a business and they refuse to share that with men because, to them, men are the problem.

Feminists use just one thing to remain relevant and needed and something to convince other women and even men to become a feminist; Patriarchy. The invisible force that is ruled by men and is used to rule women’s lives and dictate everything they should do, the root cause of women’s oppression and suffering. The enemy of not just feminism, but all women. Their Devil. And they describe feminism as the liberating force of good and justice that’ll show you the way to live. It sounds like a cult, a fundamentalist religious cult that brainwashes you into hating the outside world. They say feminism is all about ‘equality’, they sure do blame men for everything and women are always the innocent victims in any situation. They name the force of oppression after men (patriarchy) and the force for good after women (feminism). It’s a movement very concerned about language like if you call a firefighter a “fireman”, you are somehow discouraging little girls from aspiring to be firefighters. But they can call the force that causes women’s oppression after men. Feminists don’t wanna blame men, they just named everything bad after them.

I agree that both sides need a dialog and a platform to speak, both feminists and men’s rights activists, to vocalize their concerns and bring light to issues bother genders face. But it’s the feminists who are stopping that, the ones who only want their issues to be heard and if they admit there are issues men do face, it’s somehow linked to patriarchy.
Feminism is what is really holding women back, not patriarchy or men. It’s feminism. Feminism is the force of oppression women wanna fight.

That is why I am not a feminist. I am a men’s rights advocate.


Why You Are Wrong About The 2nd Amendment

A well regulated militia being necessary to the security of a free State, the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.

As someone who is British and doesn’t live in America, you may wonder why I even care about the 2nd amendment. Well, I am so sick and tired of people attacking it and trying to change it after something like a mass shooting, ignoring any other problem or issue. Here is some of the most common arguments against the 2nd amendment and why they are dead wrong.

“The 2nd amendment was for things like single shot muskets, not assault rifles.”

Wrong. To even accept this argument, you’d have to think that the founding fathers were idiots, never thinking that weapons could become more advanced. Weapons have advanced since the dawn of mankind. So they knew weapons have gotten more advanced and knew that they would continue to do so in the future, but they wrote the amendment anyway because they wanted America to have access to those weapons and protection against anyone who would stop them from doing so. Also, people forget that there was a lot more than just single shot muskets back then. They had Belton Flintlocks, which could fire 20+ rounds with the pull of 1 trigger in roughly 5 seconds. The Girandoni air rifle, which 22 rounds could be fired in 30 seconds. The Puckle gun, an early machine gun that held 6 to 11 shots and pepperbox revolvers which held anything from 5 to 20 shots. And the founding fathers knew these gun existed as they had used them in the Revolutionary War, don’t forget that the founding fathers debated the Constitution endlessly, if they wanted to exclude these guns, they could have but didn’t. Also, the 2nd amendment didn’t just apply to guns, but full on artillery, President James Madison allowed a private ship owner to own cannons in case of piracy, and the founding fathers agreed with it.

“You only hear ‘the right of the People to keep and bear arms shall not be infringed.’ Why do you always forget the part about the militia?”

I doubt they forget as the people who will mostly likely have read the 2nd amendment a lot are gun owners who are required to learn about their 2nd amendment rights if they want to be licenced and they are even given pocket Constitutions on concealed carry and firearms courses . Wouldn’t it stand to reason that they do know the whole amendment and in fact, the entire Constitution then you do? Stop talking to these like they’re idiots because it just makes you look like the dumb one.

“The founding fathers meant to give the right to own guns to the militias, not the people.”

The founding fathers debated this amendment to no end and they carefully put in both clauses, one for the militia and one for the people. If they didn’t want the people to own guns, why did they leave that in? Also, who was the militia in that time? The people. They had just fought a tyrannical government for the past two years and to ensure that there was no more tyranny, they gave the people the right to bare arms to they could protect themselves. Sometimes, those militias rebelled against the government and George Washington had to fight them, what would have been an easy way to stop this from happening? Ban guns. But, Washington knew that this was needed to stop any kind of tyrannical government in the future. Also, some may argue that the militia is now the police, who are armed. Firstly, they did have police back then, not like today but they did have people who would punish you if you broke the law. Second, I think its funny when people say the police should be armed as they are the militia but then say they should be unarmed after a protest by BLM.

“The government was actually giving itself the right to own guns with the 2nd amendment.”

…What? Why would a government need to give itself the right to own anything in a founding document? Wouldn’t this mean that the government also gave itself the right to free speech, not the people?

“Screw the 2nd amendment, that was written in the 18th century, we need new laws.”

So you only wanna get rid of parts of this 18th founding document that you don’t like? Also, because of the way it’s worded, the people given the right to bare arms as part of a well regulated state militia and nothing else, if this was scrapped, it would mean a complete ban on guns. Not a blanket gun ban or banning assault weapons, a complete ban on all weaponry. This would be wildly unpopular and this might be interpreted as government tyranny by the people and many people would defend their guns with their life, possibly leading to an overthrow of that government. People could say that the government could give people the right to own guns to some but the actual right itself would be non-existent. Liberals don’t want people to know this as it would totally destroy their gun-control argument and they’d lose too much support for it to continue.

Please, for the love of god, stop trying to mis-inform America, you filthy hippies.

People Don’t Understand The Men’s Rights Movement

Men’s Rights Movement

A group similar to the Nazis, according to some feminists, The MRA’s are often victims of assault, whether it’s physical, verbal or online, every gathering of their members are protested aggressively by feminists, who label them as sexist. misogynistic bigots who think that women deserve rape and women are men’s property. Now, is that true? No, you idiot. That is what they’ve been labeled as by feminists, ask anyone what the Men’s Rights Movement is about and they’ll say some rant by a misinformed feminist they read on a Facebook post. I’ve asked people this question and they say the same thing, sexist liars who hate women. However, some of them have admitted that MRA’s have good ideas and are well informed. How can you call a movement who raise good arguments and have good ideas on issues like gender inequality ‘misogynistic’? Wouldn’t that make you a misogynist for admitting that? Really, MRA’s make very good arguments and are very intellectual when it comes to discussion, but suffer from actual sexists who claim to be an MRA. People get mad when a radical feminist says something like “Every man should die” and that is seen as what every feminist believes, so why doesn’t that apply to this movement? That is a massive double standard that is endorsed because no one wants to listen to the MRA’s or their arguments.

Also, a misogynist is someone who hates women just because they are women, like a racist is someone who hates someone based solely on their race. But the MRA’s are seen as being self-centered and only caring about men and men’s issues. Where is the hatred for women? I don’t know if you realize this but most men like women, a lot actually, that’s why they date them, marry them and have families with them and guess what? MRA’s do like women. Just because you disagree with someone or some some group or are more concerned about you then someone else, doesn’t mean you hate them. If I don’t give money to a charity because I need that money to buy food, doesn’t mean I hate that charity. Another argument about MRA’s being misogynists is that they attack female privilege while ignoring male privilege. By what you’ve just said, feminists are just as bad as they attack male privilege while ignoring their own. But they want equality, right? Then they’ll say that women don’t have privilege, then I’ll say that women always get custody of children during divorces, get rape and sexual assault accusations taken seriously and women get 63% less prison time then a man for the exact same crime. Then they’ll either ignore you or admit that is privilege but say it’s not as bad as male privilege, which is such a ridiculous argument because you say there is no privilege then say they do but not as bad because they “rule the world” while 99% of men will never have that level of power and the world has had female leaders.

Another argument is that MRA’s are minimizing concerns over domestic abuse, just because they that men can get abused too, by female partners. I don’t get how that’s minimizing concerns, I see it as quite the opposite as it isn’t letting female abusers get away with it. They then say that, if that is true, that it is a tiny percent and females get it much more. That doesn’t mean it doesn’t happen, to me, it sounds like you are minimizing the concerns about domestic abuse as you only care about the female side of it. There are studies like chapter 4 of http://www.cdc.gov/ViolencePrevention/pdf/NISVS_Report2010-a.pdf that shows the numbers of male domestic abuse victims are at roughly the same number as women in relationships, which mean its in the millions. Not such a tiny percentage now, is it? All we ever hear is the “1 in 4 women in college are sexually assaulted” nonsense which has been debunked many times. Read the report and you’ll see that the numbers of men being abused are roughly the same as women, yet there are no men’s shelters for abuse victims because their told to just man up. People say that women abusing men is extremely rare when in reality, it’s pretty even, it’s just that men being abused isn’t taken seriously by most people so no report is filed. Why aren’t feminists, who want equality, not speaking up about this? Oh right, because really, you don’t care. You wanna be the victims and never wanna lose that. You are minimizing domestic abuse by valuing women’s experiences over men.

Social Justice Is Secretly Winning

As we all know, Social Justice or SJW’s, are a disease plaguing our society and culture, infecting and manipulating it into their own twisted ‘dream world’ where everyone is equal, except “the oppressive white cis male scum” who will become the oppressed while somehow still being the oppressors. Now, it’s easy to look at Social Justice and say that it’s pathetic and transparent and is losing this so called Culture War, looking at their stupidity on their social media pages and their ability to be easy destroyed in any debate as they believe their feelings matter more than facts. On YouTube, there is channels hosted by SJW’s who always get a massive amount of dislikes compared to likes and their comments are full of people debunking every argument they say, which some results in the channel disabling comments and likes. Also on YouTube, there is compilations of SJW’s/feminists/BLM supporters getting “Rekt” as their points and arguments that they assumed were watertight as they’ve never had anyone challenge them, are easily picked apart and they are left in a silent ‘triggered’ mode. So, I forgive you for thinking they are a losing group that no one cares about.

However, the truth is that they are actually winning. Behind the stupidity and triggered, Social Justice is becoming popular in schools/colleges/universities, government and both public and private institutions. Most colleges and universities are catering to these triggered students who have been fed bias garbage by their feminist teachers in gender studies class, shaming both students and professors who don’t fit their agenda. And increasing pressure from these idiots on companies are forcing them to comply with their cult of diversity. I have experienced this first hand, getting punched several times by a group of protesters after I said “Intelligence is more important than diversity.”
And the thing that’s concerning is, no one is challenging it on this level. It’s one thing to call out these SJW YouTubers for the lies and misinformation, but we do that while it takes over our education and employment. Even certain governments like Canada are signing in new laws that forbid you from doing things like criticise Islam or not calling someone by some made up pronoun they found on Tumblr. Our society is slowly what George Orwell wrote about in his book 1984.

The thing that makes me the most angry is that these SJW’s have convinced people who decide who gets into university or people who give you careers and jobs, that they have a unconscious bias towards straight white men and must overcome that bias by hiring more women, gays/lesbians, trans, black and asians etc. Now, on paper this sounds good, just one thing, White people are usually that vast majority in these countries like the UK, USA, Canada and Australia so naturally, the people who are more qualified are statistically gonna be white people since they are 70-80% of the population. This means universities, companies and corporations are taking people who aren’t the best for the job because they want a more diverse group. An example of this was the student who got into university by writing “#BLM” one hundred times on his reference letter, they didn’t care about his grades or education, just that he would fit in with their agenda.

This is spreading throughout the public service and industries. A study has shown that one third or 33% of people being employed are not the best suited for the job. Now, these companies have combated this by saying that the more qualified white males only have “perceived merit” and they are not actually better for the job because that’s how you overcome your bias. This does not just make me mad, it’s very dangerous. Will they be hiring police officers, paramedics and pilots who aren’t fully qualified but their skin is black or they have a vagina so that automatically makes them the best pick? Would you trust a doctor who was hired just because he was black? This is outrageous and dangerous and people need to speak up against this and stop focusing on diversity and hire the people who are the best for the job, no matter what their skin or gender is.

My Opinion On Abortion

This is without a doubt, one of the most controversial subject to discuss. Half of the people think it’s a woman’s right, the other half think its bloody murder. This subject itself to me, is a sensitive topic as I am kinda split down the middle.

I am pro-choice.

I believe abortions should be available, however, not only do I not agree by the way feminists want it normalized, I understand where most pro-life people are coming from. I also think it should only be allowed under certain circumstances, like rape, underage like school girls, the baby has a high chance of dying mere hours after birth or could kill the mother. The main reason I think it should be allowed is that women throughout history have died from getting illegal and dangerous abortions, so a safe alternative should be available. That’s me generalizing a lot of my points so I’ll get a bit more specific.

I believe the fetus is alive after 20-21 weeks, which is when it can survive outside the mother’s womb. After that, its called a ‘partial birth abortion’ as the baby is pulled out in pieces. That I don’t agree with, once you go beyond 20 weeks, you cannot abort it. Now, some feminist could say “Partial birth abortions aren’t a thing!” Except sweetie, they are. They have been a thing for many years. Admittedly, it was made illegal in 2003 but that law was fought by many feminists, and Hilary Clinton. Today, most feminists and pro-choice people would say that was a horrible thing, so they say it isn’t a thing, forgetting that they defended it after it was banned.

Now, they will say that they don’t defend late term abortions but rebuttal that by saying that only 1.3% of abortions are late term, and they are because the baby could have a fatal birth defect or serious risk to the mother’s life. Now, I did defend that but lets look at what a birth defect is. I said that as it may die days or hours after birth, but under the law, a birth defect is a disability. It doesn’t cause a risk to the mother’s life, at all. They just don’t wanna go through having a disabled child to they choose to abort it. That, I do not accept. According to studies, 90% of down syndrome babies in America are aborted. In the UK, 53% of prenatally diagnosed fetuses/babies are aborted. Half of them are aborted because they may have a birth defect. Will they die after being born? No. Would the birth kill the mother? No. So it should be illegal.

Now, what if the baby is a serious risk to the mother’s life? That is a decent point, if they both will die, why not save one? That is something I agree with as a mother shouldn’t have to die to have a baby. Some would do that and some would not. However, what is a serious risk to the mother? To me, its that they will die. But, abortion laws don’t include anything about the mother’s life, only their health. Health is different from life as anything can be filed under health, it can be small things like stress or anxiety or loss of appetite, they could even fake a health risk to get an abortion. That shouldn’t be allowed. Also, lets look at that number of late-term abortions, 1.3%. That is still 13,000 per year, 350+ per day. Doesn’t seem like such a small number now.

Anyway, thats my position. I know its unpopular but it is mine.
