Re: College: Gender Studies
, this pretty much sums you up:
"Activism on behalf of the human rights of men and boys is difficult for several different reasons. One of the most obvious is a public narrative which takes the following form.
- We live in a patriarchy;
- Therefore women, and not men are oppressed;
- Men are elevated and advantaged;
- Therefore anyone advocating male human rights is really driven by misogyny;
- And so, men’s rights organizations are hate organizations".
This narrative is incorrect; that is the point.
We are all the sum of our tears. Too little and the ground is not fertile, and nothing can grow there. Too much, and the best of us is washed away.
