Feminists claim to fight for gender equality by abolishing or compensating for what they call “male privilege” and “patriarchy”. While society has historically been run primarily by male leaders, this has never translated into being run FOR men. Unless it’s a privilege to be vastly more likely to be:
- Accidentally killed at work
- Dead by suicide
… then there really is no privilege in being male. And before you make the argument that feminism is about equality, or women’s rights, take a look at the following statements:
“Females don’t have to kill baby boys. Just not nurture them. Females are forced to ‘birth’ baby boys, but beyond that, a female’s physical actions are her own. Males will die without the constant infusion of female energy that they get from our wombs & from our lives. They are perfectly welcome to take the male infants from the hands of the midwife, & what they do with it is from that point is *their* decision. Females need not be emotionally & intellectually invested in a male future.”-Mary Syrett, feminist, writer & member of the City of Kingston Arts Council in Ontario, Canada.
“My gut reaction to this was to mentally pick him [a 9 year old boy] up & throw him out the window - without bothering to open it first. Nine years old & already ruined for life by the other males in his sphere of influence.”-Lorraine Allen, feminist, a special education teacher at The Center for Discovery Hurleyville, New York.
“No woman should not be authorized to stay at home and raise her children. Society should be totally different. Women should not have that choice, precisely because if there is such a choice, too many women will make that one.”-Simone de Beauvoir, feminist.
We in the Mens Rights Movement recognize Feminism as a hateful, bigoted, and destructive ideology which undermines the civil society by pitting women against men and against their own interests.
Critics of the MRM say that we really don’t fight for men’s rights and are just an anti-feminist movement. In the words of Paul Elam of A Voice For Men, “there’s more to being an MRA than just being anti-feminist”.
