LOOK. IT’S EVERY SINGLE STEREOTYPE ABOUT MEN’S RIGHTS ACTIVISTS PUT INTO ONE HANDY-DANDY DEMOGRAPHICS SURVEY SO IT CAN BE STATISTICALLY VALIDATED!! [x]
You know what’s awful? As a feminist, I would have no problem with a men’s rights activist… if men’s issues were what they actually fought for. Unfortunately, the only thing men’s rights activists seem to be doing is fighting against feminism and against women by derailing women’s issues and invalidating them… They use men’s issues as reasons to invalidate women’s. And isn’t that just a wee bit sad and pathetic Especially since there are real issues men are facing. But the only thing I’ve ever seen MRAs doing, is bringing up the issues as reasons to be against feminism. As reasons to hate women. That’s not a movement for men. That’s an anti-women movement. I mean, lol, look at the above chart. Their main issue is the legalization of marijuana, over and above the rights and equality of marginalized people. Majority of white men already have no problem getting away with smoking weed as often as they want, without the blatant fear of prison that black men and PoC face with partaking of pot smoking. Heterosexual White men ARE a privileged class of people. They control the vast majority of power WORLDWIDE. This is not to say white men do not EVER face oppression. It doesn’t mean they don’t have problems (this is often the argument I hear coming from white hetero men). It just means they do not face oppression based on skin color, gender, or sexuality. Their oppression is not based on the fact that they are white men… Classism is an issue for EVERYONE. But then when you add on to that race, sexual orientation, gender identity, this is what we mean when we talk about privilege. It doesn’t mean all white men are rich douchebags with no problems. As a white cisgender woman, I can admit I have a heck of a lot of privilege and more opportunity afforded to me due to that. Why do so many white men deny this very obvious fact?
