          and their sources? none of them are credible on their own. either way i agree with the idea that sexism has turned in the other direction and is unequal again in a lot of ways but you try and push these arguments with real combative feminists and you wont win. you need real credible big name sources. theres plenty of good intention websites like realsexism.com but all they are is just big propaganda and they really only take our standing backwards. just like feminists have their idiotic, made up statistic, propaganda bullshit websites who hold them back.

            Really because I had a look at the sources listed and a lot lead to credible sources or sites that list credible sources themselves. There is a TON of data within a couple of clicks and there are over 100 links on that page, newspapers which cite sources, official stats, blogs that cite official stats, etc.

            Eg, in the feminism debunked section the first line that says “The wage gap is a myth” Most words link to different news websites, that’s 7 news site sources in one line of text.

    To be fair, none of these are the fault of feminism – I doubt the figures would have been different before that movement, at least proportionately. The exception: male and female life expectancy were about the same until about a hundred years ago, but women’s gains hark back to the tremendous advances in maternal health care – only a few generations past a venture as dangerous as the riskier male professions at the time.

    What this fails to acknowledge is that the vast majority of these are inflicted themselves by men. Discrimination of women refers to men’s behavioural influence on a situation. Even the ones on custody and alimony probably align somewhere with the rates of domestic violence and abandonment. Most of these have about the same argumentative substance as stating ‘50% of all catfight victims are women’. Pretty pethetic.

    Haven’t read all statements but just wanted to point out the possibility of some biases in these state. For example, as of now many studies on the workforce are male based simply because they are male dominated. As a female (for the most part) you have to receive higher education to go offshore or mining (wherever) to do the same job as a man who is straight out of high school. I understand that many of these position can be based on physical capabilities however, stats wise, these are incomparable. Women tend to hold less ‘high-risk’ positions and the percentage of men to women in ‘high risk’ jobs at the moment and earlier especially are extremely uneven. However, do not agree with women physically or mentally/verbally abusing men simply because they can get away with it and men cannot defend themselves. As a women who has ecountered many forms of abuse I would never wish that on any other. I also know many women who have been physically and sexually abused who would never speak up on it due to worries of : what others think, admitting to yourself that this happened, thoughts of self hate and blame for letting it happen, it was a ‘friend’, to avoid disppointing family and friends <- even though that should never and most times would never be the reaction. There is something within you that believes it is your fault and it's humiliating. I 100% agree that 'feminism' is no longer that at all and once re-evaluated deserves a new, more fair term because there are many woman who claim to be feminists however they do now simply request equal rights, they request higher rights as though it is a competition, a quest to avenge any and all wrong doings from the past. Although I agree with equal hiring and job opportunity, I have also seen Caucasian men who are better suited for the position passed up for a women or men of minority. This is in place now I suppose to ensure that no company can dance around the 'equal rights' situation however it poses a new dilemma concerning our male rights. As much as our black, pink yellow- Asian, African American, female, jewish- comterparts may have suffered, it was not today's workforce that caused such chaos and it is not these young workers who deserve the same oppression now. Hire who is competent, likely to succeed and thirsty for knowledge. Treat others with respect as you would have them treat your mother, father, grandparent or child. Love everyone equally!!!

    i personally don’t see the point of this, because it’s the same as comparing a man to a woman, men are naturally dominant in somethings so of course they”ll be problems. I mean if the male sex where the weaker sex there”ll be men rights not women rights. Men have been “manning up” for centuries so whatever the point of this post is, i don’t think its an excuse to be less of a man.

    As someone who has criticized feminism, intersectionality and equality of outcome for quite some time, I get frustrated when I see an article like this framed the way it is. There are actual appropriate battles that some feminists fight but their movement misrepresents data through exaggeration and argue that collective groups actually conspire against them.

    Here we have a bunch of relevant points but I see it is framed as “legal and lethal discrimination.” Death IS NOT disciminating against men, and if you frame it that way you are taking steps in line with the feminists. The legal system, by and large, prosecutes men and women appropriately based on their crimes, previous offenses and likelihood to reoffend.

    To be constructive, I’d prefer to see all of this framed (all of this being the collective whole of men’s activism) in this way-

    Women, here are some stats on the people you have been indoctrinated to believe are out to get you. We are not, we are overwhelmingly suffering at our own hands and the hands of other men because will fill a role in society that you don’t and the byproduct of our biology has some serious negative side effects. And guess what? Even though we have these collective stuggles we care more about your issues than our own because we care for you, collectively, and realize that you are even more vulnerable in our world than we are. Your adversarial and accusatory behavior is crushing us because we need you, desperately, to work with us and not against us. The longer you treat us as though the worst among us represent the majority, the wider the gap will grow and thats making everyone unhappy.

    Or something like that, I dunno, but as men lets not pretend that we aren’t emotionally and cognitively devastated by being collectively rejected by the group we are programed to care for and protect. We’re men so we should be facing sticks and stones bravely and without resorting to the same propoganda that we’re fighting.
