Re: College: Gender Studies

And junxon, 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.
