Yes, it is pretty disappointing that the straight white cis men’s rights movement cares so little about men and are instead obsessed with harassing and harming women.
However, it is pretty cool that we’re at the top of the search results for men’s rights!
What does A Voice for Men, the premier men’s rights activism site, publish on 9/11? Well, Nicholas Alahverdian, one of their employees, compared his losing a sexual assault case to a horrifying act of terrorism where thousands of innocent civilians were killed.
You can find the full article here (apologies for cutting it up for the above images) and more information here and here:
Background: Alahverdian lost a sexual assault case, which of course had evidence, including expert testimony that he had manufactured fake evidence. He waived his right to a jury and right to testify (which is common, saves defendants from cross-examination).
And courts have ruled against him on related matters so many times I’ve lost count. Rejected each of his appeals. At one point he fled the state and at another he violated court instructions not to publish his accuser’s name.

But any attempt at an honest discussion of our feelings and experiences is treated with mocking derision. Which I'm sure you all find quite hilarious, but the reality is that all it does it foment more hatred. I don't know if you don't think men have feelings also or just don't care, but the end result is the same, you feed hatred between the sexes and that will only lead to more rapes

Wow. Is there a subtype of Godwin’s law for white men’s rights advocates where, in any conversation ever, they just feel the need to talk about how something is going to cause men to rape more and more?
Ah, sweet schadenfreude! The gamebros at 4chan have been insisting publicly that the whole #GamerGate campaign — you know, the vicious attacks on game developer Zoe Quinn and other women in gaming — has been a spontaneous grassroots uprising against corruption in the world of game journalism, not a targeted campaign by misogynistic 4channers and their allies to ruin the lives of Quinn and everyone even vaguely connected with or even just aligned with her.
Well, it’s just become a lot harder to make that argument with a straight face. Last night, Quinn announced that she’s been lurking in the IRC where 4chaners have been diligently and often quite deviously planning this “spontaneous” uprising. And she’s started posting screenshots that seem to offer pretty incontrovertible evidence of just how duplicitously 4channers planned every element of #GamerGate.
When men’s rights activists are asked which gender they would choose if they could choose their gender, this is the top response:
I would totally choose to be a female without a second thought.
I’m a 47 year old male spending my life working until I am able to accumulate enough money so I don’t have to work anymore. If I were a woman, I could get married, quit my job and let my husband support me… and no one would bat an eye.
And if I grew tired of him, I could divorce him, get half the marital assets and have him cut me a check for the rest of his life while I had absolutely no further obligations to him.
Basically, as a woman, I could have everythingright nowthat, as a man, I have to work my entire life to achieve.
Anyone else get the feeling that men’s rights activists get their entire worldview from 90’s sitcoms?
Anonymous said: I see a lot of MRA s talk about how unfair it is for women to be able to get an abortion and the fathers to have no say in the matter... do you realize that every state has a law were the father can sign away the rights to his child - he does not have to pay child support but also has no legal right to come into contact with the child ever - Basically, having what I like to call a 'male abortion'. so, really, the whole argument surrounding that 'issue' is invalid. Thank you and good night
It’s easy to forget sometimes that not all whites were pro-slavery. Similarly with women and feminism. I really hope we’ll see a female Abraham Lincoln one of these days who’ll set free the men and produce a charter for true equality.
If Elam truly does know about Ramsey’s repugnant racial views, why would he support Ramsey’s videos on such a high-profile platform? After all, A Voice for Men is “the most widely read men’s rights website in the world” in Elam’s own words. Does Elam share in Ramsey’s crude racism in addition to his blatant misogyny? If Elam is standing up for all men he should have to answer for that, especially since he’s fresh off the heels of his international men’s rights conference in Detroit — a city blighted by economic turmoil and racism.
One can only hope that all these straight white men get some serious reparations for all the indignities and cruelty they have suffered in America and Europe.
After all, straight white men can get some serious repetitive strain injuries beating and killing people of color, LGBTQ people, and women for daring to not know their place.
