The current in the unending stream of complaints from feminists is the word bossy. They don’t like it. It makes them upset, and they are now trying to boss people around about saying it. Hold on just a minute, says Dr. Paul
Who’s raped more often, boys or girls? Turns out, it’s boys. And who does the raping? Looks like it’s a tossup between men and women. Don’t believe it? Psychotherapist Tom Golden looks at the research. Please share this article far and wide.
The tell tale sign of bigotry is always there. You see it every time in a privileged class of people who are absolutely certain that their ignorance is enlightenment and their hatred is simply just and for good cause. Nurdy Dancing calls ‘em out.

AVfM welcomes 17 year old Josh O’Brien, who has already figured out that the “Patriarchy” myth of privileging men over women is, well, a myth. When youngsters are already figuring it out for themselves, we have hope that this hateful notion will die within our lifetimes.
Human trafficking: it’s about more than just women and girls, although the headlines you so often seem focus almost exclusively on them. As if the men used as indentured servants and effective slaves are rare and don’t matter.
In a long but brilliant essay, Drs. Paul Nathanson and Katherine K. Young examine the religious, philosophical, and cultural roots of misandry, and its pervasiveness and effects on modern culture. Sit down to explore and digest this one, it’s long but worth your time.
We punish and shame boys on a regular basis, sometimes even for doing the right thing. Then we wonder why boys are consistently falling further and further behind girls in school? Jonathan Taylor looks at two examples.
Military veteran Michael Conzachi has news of the proposed Military Justice Improvement Act in the USA. But it doesn’t look like the Guilty Until Proven Innocent mentality is going to go away, and new attempts to accomplish this same thing are likely to continue soon.
I have a confession to make – I’m scared… but in a good way. You see, 2014 is slowly but surely shaping up to be “the year”. We are literally starting to see the gender zeitgeist starting to come apart at the seams.
First they ignore you,
then they laugh at you,
then they fight you,
then you win
As cliche as this might sound, it just so happens that our movement is reaching the third stage in 2014. We’ve passed the decades of being ignored and the decade of trying to be silenced through mockery. Ladies and gentlemen, 2014 is the year where we finally engage head-on.
The man who started it all
While no movement or revolution can ever really be fully credited to any one person, there is no doubt that one man stands above the crowd when it comes to men’s rights. It’s somewhat ironic and interesting to note that there are few original ideas in our movement.
In fact, if we are to be honest, most of the points MHRAs make today are but variations on themes which were set 20 years ago by one brilliant man. Whether we are discussing male disposability, challenging the “wage gap” or challenging male “power” and “privilege” – we are merely following in the footsteps of one Dr. Warren Farrell.
While today we take it for granted that misandry and feminist attacks on men can be challenged with solid argumentation, facts and data – this wasn’t always the case.
In fact, when Warren Farrell originally came out with “The Myth of Male Power” – it surprised everyone with the amount of buried data and hard-to-find facts it exposed. It literally awoke us to the fact that we can logically argue and prove what we already knew to be true. Male power is a myth, and in many ways the exact opposite is true about the lives of men.
This brings us, and Dr. Farrell, back to 2014.
He has been hard at work producing an explosive 21st Century edition of the book that started it all. In keeping with the times, and the technology, the book (with an all new introduction for 2014) is now available as an instant download ebook.
Every MHRA and everyone else interested in the issues faced by men and boys can quickly and easily own it. As Paul Elam of A Voice for Men says, “It is the most important book about men and masculinity ever written. There would be no men’s movement without it.”
Don’t wait till tomorrow on this one.
