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.

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.

Concerned for the Girl and Only the Girl

A recent news article published in The Independent about a video of a girl performing a sex act during a drinking game on about 20 men illustrates our society’s attitudes towards male and female sexuality. Read the article and note the concerns. Then ask yourself why all the concern is for the girl and not any at all for the men… Before a woman can truly be liberated, she must not only be empowered to make choices and decisions about her sexuality, she must be capable of taking responsibility for them. If she fails to hold herself (and other women) to the same standards as men, there can be no equality, only inferiority. It is a shame that a movement that claims to be all about equality of men and women consistently places women in a position of inferiority relative to men.
