“Return of Kings” is a site devoted to the idea that manly men should be manly and do manly things. Sometimes they have interesting things to say. Sometimes, they’re just plain goofy. B.R. Merrick has a look at the soi-disant “Kings.”
In a hilarious takedown of everyday pseudo-logic, B.R. Merrick says it takes an education in idiocy to believe men ever oppressed women and that, as a result, feminism has accomplished great things for women or men. We think he has a point.
At A Voice for Men we put stock in the value of reasoned dissent, and to taking hard, often uncomfortable looks at our even our most cherished beliefs. B.R. Merrick makes his offering in that spirit here, with a reaction to a piece on Mormonism and feminism by Nicholas Alavherdian.
B.R. Merrick walks us across the bridge that spans the gulf between men and women, noticing the cracks and conflict stressed supports along the way. And he shows us weak portions, stressed by the weight of unrealistic expectation.
