At what point will men stand up and fight the sexism and descrimination against males in our culture?
People are always very fast to point out how women earn less than men, and highlight how they have it so hard, but I am yet to see men stand up for their rights, and fight the gender discrimination that is aimed at them as men.
If you are a man, in many instances you will be treated as expendable, for example, men are expected to go down with the ship, while women and children climb in to the life boats. This policy would have made sense in the past, for procreation reasons, but with the overpopulation problem in the world, there is no longer any justification for women and children to be saved first.
You also have all the other discrimination, be it in divorce cases, child custody cases, and so on.
Men are also objectified just as much as women, all you need to do is watch a few perfume advertisements to see how this is so.
Men are also generally punished more for their crimes, serving longer jail times than women who commit the same crime.
So where are the complaints? where is the movement for male rights?
There was a time, when a man would go down with the ship, or go off to fight a war, and they would be respected and thanked for doing so. However now days, the most gratitude and respect they can expect for accepting the label of being expendable people that society has given them, is to be told what a pig they are.
Should men fight back? and if so when?
Or perhaps we should all just admit that life is not fair, do away with feminism and male rights, and just admit it is all bullshit, and concentrate of the rights of everyone, regardless of their gender?
What say you?
