Why we need Men’s Rights (aka, why Feminists should stop dismissing the MRM and ask a few questions)

I’m going to, for the moment, put aside the issues that feminists and MRA’s dispute, fight, insult and any other form of nastiness that one can convey over the medium of the internet. This time I’m going to play nice. I want to ask the feminist the same question I asked my self that caused me to seek out and find the MRM a few years ago. That question is this:

Who represents men?

There are organizations for Blacks, Latinos, Asians, Native American, Gays, Women; but where is male experience represented?

I’m not exactly a fan of the way politics works these days, maybe it’s the way it’s always been, but it seems to me that only way to effectively be heard by our elected officials is through gigantic lobbing organizations. Perhaps you would argue that because of the “patriarchy” that  was in charge that it automatically represents the male perspective. Even if this was true* this is not the case now with lobbyists being the primary avenue trough which voters influence policy, it only makes sense that there is a lobbing group that represents men.

How about one more question. Is the pain, frustration and anger that is demonstrated by many in the MRM real? I hope that you are able to recognize that these emotions are real, and honest and looking for a place where they can be expressed.

That all I got to say, from here on out I would imagine it’s going to get a little more confrontational. So let’s touch gloves, go to our corners and when the bell rings, come out swinging.

*I don’t believe it is, but that’s for another time
