Misogyny Hurts Men Too?

I have recently begun reading a blog called Inside Man which claims as its mission to “[pioneer] conversations about men and boys.” I have found that many of the articles posted there are quite though-provoking. Many of those articles are written by authors whose work I have seen elsewhere and whom I admire. But as with any site, I do not always find what they post to be agreeable. One such article is Misogyny is man’s worst friend and ending it is good for everyone written by Chris Flux from Men Against Violence which claims to be “a men’s campaign to end violence against women.” Flux’s arguments are based on false premises and assumptions, logical fallacies, and erroneous definitions which is why his conclusions are wrong and his suggestions will not achieve his goals.

Saving Room for Cats

There has been a lot said about men taking up too much space on trains and/or other forms of public transportation and how this is a demonstration of male entitlement. I found the above photo and the one below used as examples of said male entitlement. If one takes a close look, they may not be examples of this at all. Before I point out why this may not be the case, I’ll also point out how I haven’t seen any of the articles of this type mention or even discuss the female equivalent: the expectation that men will offer their seat to women.

The Right to Choose

The right to choose only applies to women. Men are permitted no such right. Despite claims that feminism is about equality, men can expect no help or support from feminists because it is really all about the women, fuck the men. If men are to achieve equal rights with women, men need to support the Men’s Human Rights Movement which is concerned not only with men’s rights, but also with human rights.
