[TRIGGER WARNING: EXTREME MISOGYNY, CISSEXISM]
Believe it or not, I still get people coming to me to say that Men's Rights Activists don't hate women and are just trying to help men with their issues.
This is really hard to back up when perhaps the biggest voice in the Men's Rights community literally hates women and think they should stay out of the workplace because we're ruining everything with our whining. Also he's totally cissexist, constantly conflating vaginas with femaleness.
Actual literal quote from head of one of the most popular Men's Rights websites:
“There’s just a different way that men do things with each other, and it results in excellence,” Elam said on something called the ManStream Media. “In civilization. In the aqueducts being built. To people landing on the moon and cures being found to disease.”
“I’m sorry, ladies,” he continued, “but if we want society to advance, we need to leave men alone to do their work — to do their thing and be with each other to get things done. Because that’s how it works.”
Apparently there have been no great advances in science and technology since women brought their women brains into the mix. Throw out your smart phones, they're useless.
Elam agreed that women in the workplace is the pits. In his best feminine voice, Elam said, “‘Hi! I have a vagina and a whole new set of rules! Never mind what’s worked for thousands of years, because I’m female and I know how to make 9,000 people work together to build a bridge across two miles of river!’”
If your idea of helping men is to say that we should get those useless females out of the workplace, that's still misogyny. Not sure how much clearer it needs to be.
