Melissa Kite: ‘I hate this insidisous trend for belittling men’

Our thanks to Doris for pointing us to this. I doubt many women will either read the article or respond intelligently to it, however. Too many of them have become addicted to bolstering their self-esteem by belittling individual men – usually their partners – as well as men in general. For many years popular culture has been feeding their addictions. I no longer watch drama on television, because so many of the characters are utterly unbelievable.

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.

  • This is the same Melissa Kite, who couldn’t convince her partner to commit to parenthood with her and hence blamed the immaturity of modern men, for the fact that she will never be a mother.

    Like many women of her generation the penny seems to have dropped……………..but too late.

  • It is one of the minor but irritating little myths that men somehow have fragile egos. When all the evidence is, as you say, that women have such a fragility. Personally I think the tendency for men to be the butt of the joke reflects the assumption, and mainly the reality, that men are more secure. Hence the rarity of female “stand up” or comedy characters. Having been a watcher of “Friends” I think Ms. Kite’s estimation that the female characters (prom queen brat, ditzy hippy, OCD weight issues) were well-rounded reflects badly on her understanding of what a well-rounded adult is. My suspicion would be she sees herself in one or all three and erroneously believes this to mean they’re exemplary.
