I want a Raven Moon Dragon t-shirt. I’m serious!
Raven Moon Dragon, Tumblr Feminist: Pietriarchy!
Paul Elam issues a statement regarding the recent meltdown at MRA London and where A Voice for Men will be going in the aftermath. This is one of those issues that comes up in the MHRM from time to time, and from which there is literally no escape. All opinions on it are welcome in this thread.
John the other searches though the burned down remains of a Jake Pentland article on masculinity and feminism, looking for meaning. He found some of sorts, though not the kind that was intended when Pentland wrote the article. No clues, though. You have to read it for yourself.
Some AVFM articles are the gift that keeps on giving. Paul Elam shares one of those from the past and also treats us to a review of why it was and is such a successful piece of writing. He also shows us how we have feminists to thank for it. This one will be fun for the old timers on the site.
We were recently in a conversation with someone who is very pessimistic and tells us he just doesn't see people, women in particular, coming out of the woodwork to ask for change. We told him we see otherwise. And almost by magic, yet another HoneyBadger appears...
A Russian video that you may not actually want to watch, but which you may want to send to the next dipshit who utters the words "misandry doesn't exist" to you.

For those following the University of Toronto debacle involving Warren Farrell and a gaggle of violent protesters against the human rights of men and boys, we have our first investigative winner.
Everyone once in a while we examine what passes for wisdom on the pages of the Good Men Project Magazine. The only thing for sure on this one is that it doesn't pass for wisdom here.
You want to help men? Grasp what it is like to be one with women like you for five fucking minutes. Then we can sit down and have a little chat.
Abortion is highly polemicist, with the mainstay of its opponents squarely on the neoconservative religions right. Socons, as we call them.
It also calls into question whether the concept of “consent,” where it relates to sexual activity, is antiquated. Indeed it calls into question whether the concept of “rape,” in the literal definition, is just a cultural misconception for a male tendency to fulfill women’s desire for sexual excitement and thrills and women’s collective desire to see this accomplished.
The Southern Poverty Law Center has placed AVfM and other related sites on a list identifying them as "misogynist" and "woman hating." Paul Elam responds with a letter to the SPLC president.
