Re: Men should not have rights...
@vociferous I didn't "forget" that, I didn't mention it because it's not true, and MRAs do not think it's true. However some good research has shown that 40% is a far better estimate than 2%, which anti-men's-rights people use. The 2% figure was an anecdote from an area of New York, and is not statistically significant. Much higher figures have been reported by the military and certain police jurisdictions in studies where false claims were positively identified (not just where the truth was not established, as anti-men's-rights people claim).
Men are not persecuted in every area of life, and nor are women. But for both sexes there are areas where we suffer. Men in the west have more such areas than women, but everyone (including Emma Watson) ignores them (which is a type of oppression in itself). Anti-men's-rights people want to paint a picture of a society where everyone is either in the oppressor class or the oppressed class (inherited from Marxism and based on gender to create a permanent state of revolution), and a beautiful young woman worth £30 million who has a global podium at UN Women is in their "oppressed" class whereas a homeless man is privileged. So she gets attention and he gets nothing. If you want to call that matriarchy, fine. But let's just agree that it's a bad way of looking at the world if your goal is "equality" (we both know you have no interest in equality).
Why deny men equal rights? And when will Daniel Radcliffe speak up for men's rights at UN Men? Not for a long time, because men don't have representation at the UN.
