A Feminist Comes To Terms With The Men's Rights Movement

Submitted by: boredhuman 2 months ago in News & Politics


In this TEDx talk, Cassie Jaye talks about her documentary Red Pill (2016). Critics (29%) and audience  (91%) were split about the documentary. 

This video isn't really about gender issues. It's about listening to opponents and self-reflection.

I sometimes catch myself getting into this argumentative mode, where I'm so focused on my points that I completely fail to listen to the counter-points. The other issues is pride - unwillingness to admit to yourself and to others that your views are being shaken. Changing, adapting own views is difficult, but that's where the most learning takes place.

that was all right, but truth be known, it was light years behind me.  When you can see all as equals you're getting close.

 Misogynist:  A man who thinks women are intelligent,
rational, accountable human beings and expects them
to act that way.

Excellent short.  This should be required viewing for a number of people I know.

So, the biggest difference between feminists and MRAs is the 'activist' bit. Feminists, as a group, are activists. Whereas MRAs, as a group, do very little when it comes to actually creating the services they ask for. The bulk (not all, but the bulk) of MRA activity I see online is just to score points in an argument, and there is no organisation to actually do something about the problems.

Yes, men have problems, but MRAs use them mostly for point-scoring, rather than trying to get them addressed in real terms.

That was great. I've long been an egalitarian because of pretty much the same reasons.
