Misandry in the Western Society. The War on Men.

Hello everybody

In the light of this post I realized that very few people realize that we live in a feminized and misandrist world today. A world where 'masculinity' is dismissed or confined by the narrowest of definitions. Masculine virtues such as strength, courage and chivalry are ridiculed since the rise of the 'second-wave' of feminism in the 1960's. This “artificial liberated strong masculine woman” created by modern feminism is anything but natural or normal. It runs against nature, femininity and every natural thing. It masculinizes women and femininizes, punishes men.

The Media doesn't address the issue that's why not many people are yet aware of this, however this situation is starting to change. Since recently you can read articles like this one:

http://www.foxnews.com/opinion/2012/11/24/war-on-men/

Even mothers are starting to realize:

Ladies and Gentlemen, it is about time to expose misandry!

There we go again .

Do you really believe that strength is only a masculine quality?

Wow, misandry. Look what happens once you give women the right to vote and let them out of the house to work. Where's my eyeroll and my popcorn.....

Not quite. This happens when the court system is biased against men, men are discriminated in the media, men are ridiculed on TV ads and sitcoms etc

So unrecognized is this form of sexism that the mere mention of it will be laughable to some. Yet women are typically exempt from military conscription even where men are forced into battle and risk injury, emotional repercussions, and death. Males are more often victims of violent crime, as well as of legalized violence such as corporal punishment. Sexual assault of males is often taken less seriously. Fathers are less likely to win custody of their children following divorce, etc.

But.biology.always.wins. There is a reason why the number of childless women over 30 is raising dramatically in the westernized world

Of all media, if you were to give it a bias, you're telling us it's biased against men?

Well there was me thinking that keeping women out of the military was some sort of sexist thing, but now I see that men must have been fighting to get women in the army all along, it's just strident feminists keeping them out, my word.

You rework everything else along the same lines? Most men victims of violence, victims of women I presume, or is it male self hatred?

And sexual assault against men is treated equally as seriously? I mean, if I were to be the victim of sexual assault, I'm pretty sure all women wouldn't be wondering if I wasn't secretly asking for it by wearing a t shirt that showed a bit too much neck line.

Re: Misandry in the Western Society. The War on Men.

Until you've had 30+ years of periods, bore children, given up your livelihood to raise the children, suffered thru menopause and all the while trying to build up a new life again, we'll talk about discrimination against men. And then you'll realize how petty it sounds.

You don't say... most men would pay to be assaulted sexually by women...

C'mon surely you can do better than this (and don't post that video from the other thread 'cos it is a load of pants and stands up to close scrutiny for oh... about 5 seconds at best...)...

To be devil's advocate, that's not really relevant and sounds... erm... petty. With the exception of "given up your livelihood to raise children" - which it has to be said some women do happily - you are talking about biological differences which are somewhat unavoidable. The OP is talking about a conscious decision by the world's - d'you hear me? - the WORLD's media to conspire against men.

I got kicked in the shins once ... by a girl no less ... I'd say the pain and trauma must be comparable.

As has been pointed out, he's had more posts (hint: look at his groan ratio) - but that's OT - as is this thread, hence no post counts.

This is a debate to be had - I'm just not convinced by the OP's arguments.

Anyway, why is this in off-topic? Surely such an important topic should be in the International politics section?!

Yup. We were planning our stirring campaign all the way back in 2007 when the OP joined EF...

Absolutely. It's the insane sort of argument that derails any discussion and no doubt the sort of thing troublemakers are trolling for. About as staggeringly intelligent as the other one that says men can't have opinions on abortions because they can't actually have one.
