mensrightsactivism:

There is nothing simultaneously sadder and funnier than a bunch of white men’s rights activists comparing their “struggle” to the cosmic horrors of slavery and domestic terrorism endured by black people for centuries:

It’s easy to forget sometimes that not all whites were pro-slavery. Similarly with women and feminism. I really hope we’ll see a female Abraham Lincoln one of these days who’ll set free the men and produce a charter for true equality.

No wait, what makes this even sadder and funnier is that Paul Elam, their leader, seems to support a white supremacist:

If Elam truly does know about Ramsey’s repugnant racial views, why would he support Ramsey’s videos on such a high-profile platform? After all, A Voice for Men is “the most widely read men’s rights website in the world” in Elam’s own words. Does Elam share in Ramsey’s crude racism in addition to his blatant misogyny? If Elam is standing up for all men he should have to answer for that, especially since he’s fresh off the heels of his international men’s rights conference in Detroit — a city blighted by economic turmoil and racism.

One can only hope that all these straight white men get some serious reparations for all the indignities and cruelty they have suffered in America and Europe.
After all, straight white men can get some serious repetitive strain injuries beating and killing people of color, LGBTQ people, and women for daring to not know their place.

And that headline is no exaggeration:

As always, check out Man Boobz for the whole story. He really nails the whole men’s rights “movement” down with just a few sentences:

Doxxing by Men’s Rights Activists isn’t an accident; it’s the inevitable result of the peculiar style of Men’s Rights Activism.
MRAs, you see, seem utterly incapable of engaging in any kind of activism that might actually benefit men in the real world in any concrete manner. What they as a group specialize in is demonizing women, and in the case of too many MRAS, nothing gets their activist juices flowing faster than the opportunity to attack an individual woman.
That’s why A Voice for Men “activists” put up “wanted” style posters featuring their favorite feminist villains of the day; it’s why they started Register-Her.com. That’s why a certain red-haired Canadian activist who yelled at some MRAs once at a protest now finds her image splashed everywhere online as a visual representation of an evil feminist. That’s why MRAs show up at protests with cameras and threaten to expose the women they film — even if they’ve done nothing more than stand there with a sign.
And that’s why they doxx.
The Men’s Rights movement isn’t a civil rights movement.  As it stands right now, it’s a union of abusers, and their enablers.

Rape Culture Is Real -

mensrightsactivism:

Zerlina Maxwell is amazing:

That last bullet point about Occidental College? You can thank men’s rights activists for making that situation even worse by flooding the college’s anonymous reporting system with false rape accusations.

Ugh.

mensrightsactivism:

A core value of men’s rights is celebrating (and upvoting a story about) a judge who victim blames a 13 year old girl who was raped by a 21 year old man.
This is the human rights movement Reddit truly deserves.

Now this is how you do an anti-rape campaign. Great work, Scotland! Via Feministing:

We’ve written about a number of great anti-rape efforts that take direct aim at perpetrators and the rape culture that enables them in recent years. And one of the main differences between those campaigns and the awful victim-blaming ones that simply give women advice on how they can supposedly avoid “getting raped,” (in addition to the fact that the former tend to actually be effective) is that they don’t treat rape as an inevitability. In my opinion, this idea that gendered violence is natural is one of the biggest myths that helps perpetuate the status quo.

In comparison, this is the sad, misogynistic garbage that men’s rights activists have been able to muster up when it comes to their “campaigns”:

We made the list y’all!

guys this is beautiful

Tumblr has come such a long way. I remember when I started this blog four years ago, my dash was all white. As far as I knew, there weren’t many other PoC/Woc related blogs. And I got so much shit for making this. But now, looking at this list. <3 Proud of y’all.

Whoops, reblogged to espritfollet. Anyways. Yay tumblr. If only we could get back the “users recommend” feature. Not just the same eurocentric stuff tumblr recommends.

This was actually said by a prominent member of the Men’s rights community on Reddit who then proceeded to get 24(!) upvotes:

Wearing a skirt has consequences. If we use state violence to protect women from the consequences of her choice to wear a skirt, we remove her agency. This man didn’t assault her, didn’t touch her… all he did was take a picture of what her choice in clothing exposed to the public.
How is that criminal to the point of deserving of state violence upon him?
This is saying that protecting women from the consequences of their choices in clothing is more important than men’s freedom.

Now that’s what I call a real men’s rights issue. Could you expect anything less from a hate group?

Anonymous said: I like to think of myself as an MRA. I would like to know: what is so wrong with a movement that asks for equality for men? Feminism fights for women, MRA fights for men. It seems fine to me.

mensrightsactivism:

Men’s rights activists do not care about men. They are a reactionary hate group that sits around and complains about women and “manginas”. They are the gender equivalent of white rights activists.

They are obsessed with false rape accusations despite claiming to care about how men who are sexual assault victims are stigmatized.

Oh and then they flood a college’s rape reporting system (designed entirely to help destigmatize sexual assault for people of all genders) with false rape accusations.

They also claim that women always get custody of children despite also defending the wage gap because women spend more time with children. They are so dazzled by their own victimizing ideology that they can’t even see the contradiction.

6 charts that show just how white and male the US media remain -

The shadowy feminist campaign to control the media continues to be a resounding success:

Women make up just 36 percent of newsroom staffs–and that hasn’t really changed since 1999.

“What is called the problem of “sexual assault” on campus is in large part a problem of reckless alcohol consumption, by men and women alike.” — WSJ writer James Taranto spews some men’s rights talking points that blame women who have been sexually assaulted. Media Matters provides a nice take down of his noxious rape culture bullshit. (via mensrightsactivism)

What does the men’s rights community consider an important civil rights issue? Over 400 upvotes and 200 comments on the victim-blaming submission pictured above indicates the answer to that question is…doubting survivors of sexual assault. Here’s one example that got over 55 upvotes (screenshot):



So if you get “coerced/pressured” into sexual acts, it is the same a rape? “forced?” Not it is not.She had a choice , and now she is regretting it and trying to ruin someone else’s life.





And in response to that? This below gem got 32 upvotes (screenshot):

You think there’s justice? Try pissing off a pretty girl.

I wonder what the person who initially posted the link to the article thinks. Oh wait, they also posted in the comments and got 129 upvotes for their thoughts (screenshot):



Rape is damn serious, but this woman belittles the crime: “Yes, he was her boyfriend. No, he hadn’t pinned her down, or threatened violence. But Espinosa insists that he coerced her, psychologically and physically, into having sex against her will for most of their three-year relationship.” That’s rape? Only after breaking up?





I’m going to go out on a limb and say what actually belittles the crime are, wait for it, men’s rights activists. For a hate group that is trying so damn hard to prove those pesky feminists wrong about rape culture, the men’s rights community sure seems to be its own worst enemy.
