As Cathy Young of the Boston Globe so eloquently states,
"Perhaps what the 21st century needs is not a women’s movement (which was once essential to secure basic rights) or a men’s movement, but a gender equality movement."
Really, Cathy? Really??? You think it's just fine for "gender equality" to be defined and dictated by those members of the "women's movement" who now have a death grip on our government, education system, media and culture? The same people who redefined Rape Culture (along with the legal definition of "rape" itself) to almost entirely exclude male victims? The same people who have quietly replaced the phrase "domestic violence" with the phrase "violence against women" in our cultural lexicon? (While simultaneously wringing their hands and crying,"What about the children?") The same people who initiated the Tender Years Doctrine as default policy in the family courts? The same people who are angry at the military because (even some of the strongest and most dedicated) women can't meet the physical standards required for combat duty? The same people who advocate for affirmative action because there aren't enough female CEOs and Senators, yet never complain that there aren't enough female coal miners, mechanics, trash haulers and commercial fishermen? The same people who cheer when a Senator states (with a straight face, no less) that women and children are the primary victims of war because they lose their menfolk? The same people who cheer and laugh when a world-famous TV personality giggles gleefully at the mental image of a penis in a garbage disposal? The same people who rant about FGM in third world countries, while circumcising their own sons? The same people who demand (and demand funding for) endless reproductive "rights" women while telling men to "keep it in their pants" if they don't want to risk becoming parents? Cathy, Are you fucking serious????
If you're a woman who thinks Cathy Young is full of shit, follow the link to A Voice for Men and consider signing your name to this article, because "We are not withering violets, afraid that our words won’t be accepted, our opinions not liked, and our methods not approved."
