There are lots of misunderstandings about women’s rights, and men’s rights. The infamous ‘battle of the sexes’ goes on and without a good understanding of what both men and women deal with in our culture, it is easy to become biased. If we are all one species, which we are, gender politics must give way to a more comprehensive understanding of gender identity, and how both sexes have been ‘duped’ into believing falsehoods about gender roles.
A young film maker has produced a documentary entitled The Red Pill which discusses, fairly objectively, the need to shift from a feminist, or masculinist, perspective, to a humanist perspective. We are all in this together. There will be no peace, in the home, in the world, without authentic gender equality. The battle of the sexes must stop.
Men’s Rights Activists are not diminishing feminists. In fact, they totally support feminism. Their contention is that men too are under the heavy weight of social and cultural impositions, which need to be heard and understood. The Men’s Rights Movement gained ground in the early 1990’s with the publication of Warren Farrell’s eye opening book The Myth of Male Power.
