Gender really does not tell you anything meaningful at all about what forms of oppression or discrimination any given individual is likely to face. A homeless male war vet up on a felony charge of assault is both legally and socially at a huge disadvantage over someone like me. To simply point to his gender as if that confers an advantage is not only deeply inadequate, it’s worryingly reminiscent of fascism. When facts and realities cannot penetrate deeply held prejudice, it’s time to start dismantling the source of that prejudice. - Janet Bloomfield
Violent crimes? Only a few examples. One of which is their violent protest against Warren Farrell when he spoke in Toronto: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iARHCxAMAO0
Another would be this mob of pro-abortion Feminists in Argentina: http://www.lifesitenews.com/horror-mob-of-topless-pro-abort-feminists-attacks-rosary-praying-men-defend.html

Other than that, I’ll list some occasions of Feminist groups fighting against equality.
Father’s rights group want shared parenting (equal custody) to be the default if both parents want custody and neither parent is unfit.
Men want protection against false rape allegations. They feel that a man’s life should not be ruined simply on the allegation of a woman who may be a vindictive liar. Currently, a woman can accuse a man of rape for no reason, and the man’s name is splashed in the paper and his life is ruined. So, they fought for laws granting men anonymity until charged with the crime of rape—not convicted, just charged.
Feminists fought against this as well.
Men want an end to the justice system favoring women simply because they are women, and giving men harsher sentences simply because they are men.
Men want equal treatment when victims of domestic violence, and to not be arrested for the crime of “being male” under primary aggressor policies.
Feminists fought against this by trying to suppress evidence showing that half of domestic violence is done by women, by threatening the researchers with bomb threats, death threats, etc. Modern, younger feminists are doing it as well.
And sadly, they were successful in this effort of propaganda. For decades, and continuing today, violent men are (rightfully) convicted and punished by the state, while violent women are left to freely terrorize and harm their partners.
Men want female rapists to be arrested, charged, and convicted with rape. In Western countries, women are rarely punished when raping men, due to the biased legal system. In some countries, women cannot be punished when raping men, since rape is defined as a male-perpetrated crime.
Feminists fought against this in India, arguing that “there is a physicality [in] rape” and that it would make things “more complicated for judges.”
Feminists fought against this in Israel, claiming that changing the law would result in men filing false rape claims.
Men don’t want to be thrown in jail because they lost their jobs and temporarily cannot pay child support.
Feminists fought against this, trying to lower the amount to $5000 before a man is guilty of a felony for not paying child support. If a man loses a decent-paying job, he will now be a felon, go to jail, lose his right to vote, AND be unable to find future jobs—if he cannot regain an equal-paying job within a few months.
Men want equal economic support and help from the government. When the recession hit, male-dominated fields like construction lost millions of jobs, while female-fields like education and healthcare gained jobs. So the government proposed an economic stimulus for those fields.
Feminists successfully fought against this, arguing that it was discrimination to support men, and caused the government to give money to women who didn’t deserve it. Hundreds of professional feminists complained against the “sexism” of helping men (who had lost jobs) and not women (who had gained jobs).
A representative of the Michigan National Organization for Women testified in opposition to the Revocation of Paternity Act, which stopped the old law which stated that if a woman was married and cheated on her husband, the resulting child is considered to be legally the husband’s and the biological father had no legal rights to fight for custody or parenting time with his biological child.
In other words, the amendment would have “taken away” women’s rights, by treating women exactly the same as men.
Some may argue that these cases of feminists harming men is not “representative” of feminism. I ask you: Are there any cases of feminists helping men? No. Yet, there are many cases of feminists harming men.
It is reasonable to conclude from these facts that feminism fights to harm men.
Something feminist don’t seem to understand.
I am unable to stop reblogging this.
Um as if tyrion lannister wouldn’t be a feministUm as if most feminist dont act like Joffrey.
Feminists who get upset when women don’t identify as feminists:
Universities across Japan are beginning to offer balanced breakfast options for only 100 yen ($0.98) to students so they can show students the importance of breakfast on their health and well-being.
can this be a thing here and at jobs. even 3 dollars would be great.
slowly were seeing in the media the fact that very few women consider themselves Feminist because of current fourth wave ideology that says “boys and men are being trained as soldiers in the war against men” (feminism today Article) still waiting on feminism to start pushing a equal rights amendment. still 3 states away from being ratified after removing the expiration clause folks.
After a lifetime of training in gynocentric etiquette, Jonathan Bornstein explains why he is coming out of the closet as a visible mens’ rights activist.
Clearly a Misogynist male right? similar situation in my life born in one of the most diverse cities always had female best friends and though everyone equal regardless of sex or ethnicity. went to some of the most diverse schools in the united states and graduated in human services with intern ships. this year i was called a misogynist behind my back when i called out her prejudice comment about MRA’s and that they had nothing to do with Pick up artist let alone that many of them are women like girl writes what who deconstructs issues properly. On top of that faced indirect ostacization from the rest of the group who didn’t want to deal with the situation or have them be in any way responsible for their actions. this motivated me to actually spend time studying the issues and the industry of money there is in painting women as victims, yellow journalism that edits videos to claim someone is a misogynist when they were talking about female empowerment and not wanting to be seen as victims 30 seconds prior. let alone the fact no one brings up the Equal rights Amendment as a solution to these problems. So maybe someday equality but until then I will sit back and defend people like karen straughan who bring up things with actual examples and evidence.
This isn’t to say that women haven’t been courageous. There’s Joan of Arc, Harriet Tubman, and many women in the police and military today. The difference is that unlike men, women have a choice, and society does not shame women for not taking up these roles. Not now, not in ancient Greece, not in…
A Navy submariner is in the battle of his life trying to keep his little girl in a custody dispute. A judge has ordered him to appear in court or face contempt despite the fact that he’s out at sea. There is an act that’s supposed to help those who are deployed.
