I see hostility too these days from feminists. I have no doubt that women deserve equal right as men, I'm a gay man, I understand. But these days, what is their version of "equal"?
It used to be, about voting rights, education rights, etc. which I fully support 100%.
And now, if there are activists try to bring up issues in men, feminists will shut them down.
Feel free to correct me if I got the facts wrong.
Example: father's rights. I forgot what year where a woman from Nation Organization for Women Florida refuse to sit down with men on the same table. They were trying to extend the same equal child custody rights for fathers and made it into law. NOW Florida would not have it. So they demanded to have a another meeting, all women, no men allowed. Imagine if the gender is reversed. The media would have a storm.
Example 2: University of Toronto 2012, a convention where people talk about male suicides. Feminists gather outside the building, harassing the people who went there, the male feminists violently blocked people from entering the building, and the other shout at the police.
I would love to see what happen if they try to shout and scream at the cops, in United States.
What happened next, in spring 2013, this student union consist many Canadian universities, banned any group that talks about men's rights. It's not allowed in there.
And Toronto Pride 2014 banned this men's right group because they think they're misogynist.
Example 3: UK has made it into law last year, that any domestic violence center who receive federal grant cannot turn away male victims. Several centers would rather close their doors completely rather than allowing men.
While domestic violence victim are 40%-50% male, they said it's different, because men do not need it. It should only be for women.
Example 4: Search for article "No Country for Burly Men"
When Obama tried to revive the people who lost jobs during the economic crisis in 2009, he wanted to make some kind of stimulus plan in infrastructure and manufacture section. That's the section where it got hit the hardest, many male workers lost their jobs. More than 80% are males. knowing this, National Organization for Women and Feminist Majority were appaled. So they hold a meeting and tried to make Obama skewed that plan, and shift the money toward sector where jobs are held by majority women, namely education and health care section. Where actually were resistant during the crisis, and during the period even generated more jobs. So at the end, the stimulus went to women 42%.
those are just some examples. Feel free to comment, disagree, or anything.
