On the Men’s Rights Movement and Feminism

31 Aug

I have written a guest post for the Angie’s Anti-Theistic Thoughts blog, which you can view here. In it, I tackle many of the issues that concern the Men’s Rights Movement, and why feminism is an even better, more logical, more consistent approach to gender equality issues.

Here is a snippet from my post:

Listen, I’m not saying that men’s rights issues aren’t important. They are. All I’m saying is, think carefully about where they come from. It’s hardly the case that there’s some sort of new matriarchy in control of everything that nobody but you is aware of. It’s much more reasonable, and demonstrable, that it’s still the patriarchal nature of our society at play here.

    So true. The men who try to claim this is not a patriarchy have no idea of the literal definition. In patriarchies, men hold most of the positions of governmental power (women and minorites make up less than 26 percent of the senate and congress) and the children carry on the last names of the father’s…Men also become bread winners and providers whilst women take care of the kids. The very oppsite is true in he scant few Matriarchy’s we see in the world.. I have deflected many of the so called “This is a matriachy’ outcries by simply posting the WEBSTER’S definition of a patriachy. Just because women have a few unfair advantages socially, does not mean that the US is a matriarchy…sad how misagony and hate can cloud realities.
