These last few days I have been thinking about why I dislike the MRA and Feminists so much. Although I agree with the points that both groups bring, at the end of the day, it is the things they share three annoying traits.
1. I am a victim of circumstance, I am being oppressed by 'the other', and there is nothing I can do about it except bitch about it online.
2. I am socialized. My behavior is beyond my control because of this socialization.
3. People do not appreciate how powerful 'the other' is in life.
In a full circle, we see the MRA and Feminists making the same pity-whoring arguments. I would like to be clear that I am for equality - that means treating people equal. I do not expect men to do something that women are unwilling to do. I take men's issues seriously, and I take women's issues seriously. The life of a man is as valuable to me as the life of a woman. It is not 'fence-sitting' to value BOTH genders. Who the hell said on must take a side? If both sides are wrong or unfair, I am not taking anyone's side.
I have been picking on the feminists a lot, and only started on the MRA. Today I found the most hilarious video. It made me think that this is how the MRA see life. Just watch the video.
