It manages to be simultaneously predictable, reprehensible, infuriating and disheartening — no mean feat for a single document. Make no mistake about it: this document constitutes an all-out assault on masculinity — or, to put it even more bluntly, on men. Baltimore Sun. Is Toxic Masculinity a Valid Concept? Men, Misandry, and Suicide Rates. ‘Women Against Feminism’ are mostly just feminists who don’t hate men – NICOLAS KILSDONK-GERVAIS. I’ve been around ‘anti-feminist’ women for some time.
To begin with, I think it’s great that more and more women begin to see the excesses of feminism, but there is one major problem. Women against feminism (WAF) rarely oppose the legislative aspect of feminism, they usually just dislike the man-hating or the obvious lies. The problem is that feminism is an ideology based in the government, and has always been. So these ‘women against feminism’ aren’t really against feminism, they just don’t hate men. Feminism is based in the government I’ve always been annoyed by the fact that the anti-feminist crowd was so obsessed with feminist figures of no importance, like Laci Green. The government is inherently feminist The rights that are made available by the government are either made for women or mostly used by women. This is because men have no use for rights. Women against feminism don’t oppose legal feminism Most women against feminism endorse political feminism Discrimination laws.
Conclusion. There's a Hysterical, Paranoid War on Fatherhood - and It Hurts All Of Us. In the past two days, two stories of respectable, loving fathers accused of impropriety around their own children have crystallised something pernicious in our culture.

First, we have the tawdry tale of Craig Darwell, a widower accused by hotel staff of being a paedophile because he booked a hotel room with Millie, his 13-year-old daughter. Darwell, 46, who was treating Millie to a trip to Thorpe Park, discovered police were already on their way after a Travelodge manager confronted him and demanded he prove he was her father. “He said it was company policy and I had to go onto Facebook to show messages I’ve sent to her,” says Darwell, from Leeds. INTRO – Bias Against Men and Boys in Mental Health Research (1) This is the introduction to a five-part series of articles about the bias against men and boys in psychological research.

There is a short youtube that goes over the very tip of the iceberg of the contents of these articles.
I will paste that in at the end of this post. Teen Violence — When Ideology Trumps Data ( 3 – Bias Against Men and Boys in Psychological Research) The first project we will examine is a study on teen relationship violence from Great Britain.
The study consisted of both a written survey and subjective interviews of selected teens. The survey portion of the study was fairly conclusive in finding that teen relationship violence was experienced by both boys and girls. An “ad campaign” was created as a result of this work. Surprisingly, the ad campaign is designed to help only girls who were victims of teen relationship violence while focusing on boys only as perpetrators. Why does speaking out about the issues men face always trigger a furious reaction? • Why aren't men speaking up on gender issues?
Check out Cassie Jaye's talk at the Institute of Noetic Sciences. It's the narrative of her learning to avoid doing this... and about learning to listen to what was actually being said about men's issues. – ctwii
Speaking out as a man about the issues men face really can trigger a furious reaction.
The most recent example was in response to the author Matt Haig, after he said he wanted to write a book about masculinity. His statement brought down a Twitter storm of contempt in his head before he’d even written a word. The Futurist: The Misandry Bubble. - by Imran Khan Why does it seem that American society is in decline, that fairness and decorum are receding, that mediocrity and tyranny are becoming malignant despite the majority of the public being averse to such philosophies, yet the true root cause seems elusive?
What if everything from unsustainable health care and social security costs, to stagnant wages and rising crime, to crumbling infrastructure and metastasizing socialism, to the economic decline of major US cities like Detroit, Cleveland, Pittsburgh, and Baltimore, could all be traced to a common origin that is extremely pervasive yet is all but absent from the national dialog, indeed from the dialog of the entire Western world?
