I can’t believe it is so ingrained in our society that feminists can fight for equal rights, but masculinits must be misogynistic assholes.
Seriously, what the actual fuck?
99% of people will agree that masculinists must be sexist bigoted oppressors, but a feminist? oh no, they just want to make things equal.
masculinists are sexist bigoted assholes
how many more fucking power and privilege could you possibly want?
isn’t it enough to be on top of everything all the time?
Men’s rights activism is like activism for the rights of white people, straight people, cisgender people, able bodied people and rich people. Men are a part of a privileged class (they own most of the world’s property, control most of the world’s wealth, control and own most media outlets and make up nearly all world leaders), HOW MUCH MORE POWER COULD THEY POSSIBLE NEED!
In other words, they already have, socioeconomic, sociopolitical and sociocultural superiority, in this case, to be a “masculinist,” can’t possibly be advocating for their equality through “empowerment,” but is actually is just reinforcing the powerful position they already have.
Excuse me, women control 60% of the countries wealth. Women outpace men in universities and graduation rates, For the first time in american history there are now a million more female college graduates than male. Men are oppressed in the legal system in both sentencing and child custody issues. Women start 2 businesses to every 1 business created by a man, childless women in their twenties make 113% of what childless men in their twenties make. in the nations largest cities, women make up to 20% more than men for the same job, with the same title. Women are at a huge advantage in the education system when applying for scholarships. Any time a male gets off on a rape charge the pity always falls on the woman assuming she was actually raped instead of any sympathy towards the man who was arrested under presumably false allegations.
Inaccurate. According to the World Bank, women only control 1% of world wealth.
Also, the gender wage gap does not work in our favor. At all: “Salaried women workers earn 62 cents for every $1 that men earn in Germany, 64 cents in India and about 80 cents in Mexico and Egypt. Women entrepreneurs fare far worse, earning 34 cents for every $1 men earn in Ethiopia and just 12 cents in Bangladesh relative to every $1 for men.” [ http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2011/09/19/women-make-only-1-percent-wealth_n_969439.html ]
The United States Bureau reported that in 2010: “the earnings of women who worked full time, year-round were 77 percent of that for men working full time, year-round.”
According to the Center for American Progress: “Women earn less than men within all racial and ethnic groups,…Even though women are outpacing men in getting college degrees that’s not enough to close the gender pay gap,…More than 40 percent of the wage gap cannot be explained by occupation, work experience, race, or union membership,…[and] Mothers earn about 7 percent less per child than childless women.”
According to the World Economic Forum: Women make up less than 20% of world leaders: “
According to the Global Campaign for Education UK: 53% of the 67 million children missing out on school are girls
According to UN Women: There are only 117 countries that have equal pay laws and women still earn 10-30% less than their male counterparts.
According to Amnesty International , the US Census Bureau and the
Women’s Learning Partnership: Women perform 66% of the world’s work, but receive only 11% of the world’s income, and own only 1% of the world’s land. Women make up 66% of the world’s illiterate adults. Two-thirds of the world’s children who receive less than four years of education are girls. Girls represent nearly 60% of the children not in school. About 75% of the refugees and internally displaced in the world are women who have lost their families and their homes.
How can women be at a HUGE ADVANTAGE in the education system, when women are more likely to be impoverished and more likely to be illiterate?
Not to mention, that I’d more likely side with a potential rape VICTIM than potential perpetrator of rape.
