| Now consider this. What if the act of simply earning money didn't automatically earn you the dominant role in a relationship? What if the mere fact that you're a housewife or househusband didn't automatically make you less important of a person? This is part of what third-wave feminism is about, and the MRM represents third-wave feminism as it affects males. In short, for going on a century now we've been saying: "Go, women, go, pursue your wildest dreams!" And this has been awesome. We're seeing more women in positions of power, more female CEOs, etc. |
The only problem is, many people interpret this as women gaining power in society and men losing power. Don't think this. Men are not losing power because their relationships (which we will assume, for ease of discussion, are heterosexual) still have the same earning potential, because they are composed of 1 woman and 1 man. And because of third-wave feminism, if a man doesn't work he's not looked down on.
Except for one thing. If a man doesn't work (even worse, if he calls himself a househusband) he is ridiculed by society. He's given his manhood to his wife, he's signed his cock away.
This is what the MRM is about.
Reddit user (second reddit comment post in as many days. Sorry, I find these kind of interesting to read) explains
what the Men's Rights Movement is supposed
to be, rather than the cesspool of misogyny that ignorant "members" make it perceived to be.
If you use reddit (as I assume some of you do), r/depthhub
is where I've gotten these. r/truereddit
are both excellent as well. They have a much higher percentage of good content than most subreddits.
