MRA Bunny? Nooooooo!

MRA Bunny? Nooooooo!

Friends, a week rarely goes by without me seeing someone repeating the line that “40% of domestic abuse is suffered by men” or “men experience domestic violence just like women do”.

This irritates me.

Not because domestic violence against men isn’t a problem that we need to address, it most definitely is.

But because the only way one can believe that statistic is if one is a pedantic robot, with no understanding of the research literature as a whole.

Sadly, I dug all the way to Margaret Thatcher, who is in hell, and this doesn't seem to be satire.

Friends, I’m a feminist, and have been one for over a decade.

Yes, I’m a dude, we’ve been over this.

And I am constantly confronted by people who don’t know what feminism is, but have strong opinions about it.

I’m sure you know the type. There the ones who think that feminism is an attempt by women to dominate men, that there is no need for feminism because women and men are now treated equally and so on.

Those of us who read up on feminist issues know that this isn’t true. But the fact is that in every social movement there will always be a certain number of people who are just plain nuts, and feminism is no exception.

In feminism they make up a small percentage, but they’re still there.

The page is called ‘Radical Wind’ so I shall call her ‘RW’ for simplicity’s sake.

RW is arguing that heterosexual intercourse is always rape.

So-called “pick up artists” are a growth industry at the moment.

This is largely because the world is full of insecure people who feel that they need to trick othersĀ into liking them.

But I’ve recently realised what ‘pickup artist’ groups are actually about: they’re about reinforcing patriarchy, on men.
