mra-uk: Boko Haram (Nigeria)

Another excellent piece from mra-uk.

About Mike Buchanan

I'm a men's human rights advocate, writer, and publisher. My primary focus is leading the political party I launched in 2013, Justice for Men & Boys (and the women who love them). I still work actively on two campaigns I launched in early 2012, Campaign for Merit in Business and the Anti-Feminism League. In 2014 I launched The Alternative Sexism Project, aiming to raise public understanding that the sexism faced by men and boys has far more grievous consequences than the sexism faced by women and girls.

  • Very well written and makes the point that the very fact that as soon as a groups of girls were in danger the “west” leapt into some sort of action while there had been months and months of killings of boys . In fact a complete disproof of the notion that girls are not valued. Either the burnings of boys are so “routine” that they don’t warrant notice or it is deliberately sidelined as it doesn’t fit with a narrative that only females can be victims. ” Actually both explanations are true. A public with little compassion for male victims is the loam in which feminism has taken root.” And here is the paradox that the power of the feminist project is that it relies upon the much heightened concern our society has for women and girls compared to boys and men. If it’s ideologues were true to their own ideology they themselves would be pointing out this “pedestalling” of women and girls as more precious.

    Just watched Frozen. Apparently, Disney still thinks it’s ok for women to punch men but I don’t recall ever seeing a Disney film showing a man punching a woman in the face for whatever reason. No wonder women operate within a different framework of acceptability! I understand that it’s an animation but it’s still undisputedly a double-standard.
