    What is 'misandry' and what is 'anti-misandry'?
    Misandry is the hatred of males as a sex, as opposed to misogyny, the hatred of women; or misanthropy, hatred of the human species. Misandry comes from misos (Greek μῖσος, "hatred" + andr-ia (Greek anér-andros, "man". Those holding misandric beliefs can be of either sex. Thus it holds to common sense that Anti Misandry is to work toward removing misandry from our culture.

    Can you give me some demonstrations of misandry?
    Sure. Have a look at the second-wave feminist view of men for an example. Valerie Solanas, the radical feminist who shot Andy Warhol in 1968, provides a famous example of misandry in her self-published SCUM Manifesto. In case you're wondering, SCUM is an acronym for 'Society for Cutting Up Men', practically a call for gendercide, the culling of men. Quite literally, Solanas expressed her desire to "institute complete automation and destroy the male sex."

    Wow, this is pretty bad stuff - what can I do about misandry?
    For one thing, you can stop accepting it as a 'way of life'. Once upon a time, respect was a two-way street. These days it is more a one-way street where men are demanded to be respectful to women (even those who do not earn, or even try to earn it) while simultaneously disrespect of men is expected, condoned, perpetuated and even taught. You can make a difference by refusing to live this way.

    Did you just say misandry is 'taught'?
    Yes, that's right! The next time you switch on the television, count how many programmes have the token 'stupid boyfriend' or 'abusive husband' or 'paedophilic father' figure. Switch over to a children's channel / time window and watch how many cartoons or programmes reflect 'silly daddy' characters or 'bullying big brother'. Don't forget, of course, nearly all the women in these same programmes will be smart, sexy, sassy and full of beans, capable of juggling a career lifestyle with children, a husband and a social circle - let's not forget that she's undoubtedly a wonderful cook and always remembers everybody's birthdays. If these images are being constantly spread out over our airwaves, what does that tell our children who are growing up watching & learning daily, hourly, that men are just so stupid, abusive and ... well, useless?
    definition of feminism
    So is it more feminism's fault, or the media's fault?
    A lot of both, but neither would be able to indoctrinate our youth without the support of.... the government.

    Ahh - yes. The government. Tell me about their involvement?
    Well, they positively support and enforce feminist programmes of anti-male bias.

    Uh? Think 'Violence Against Women Act' - notice something wrong in that? Notice how violence against men or children is not mentioned? VAWA implies, through it's title alone, that men are the primary perpetrators of violence - despite 30 years of research and in excess of 130 scientific studies proving that intimate partner violence is roughly mutual. Time and time again, the results say the same "men and women are equally violent towards one another". And yet, when feminists demand preferential treatment or additional 'rights', the government promptly delivers, like a good boy.

    Forced Real Injustice in The Name Imaginary Social Justice
    By, Tomás Allende Conte

    When I started writing, I was a nobody, just a guy from Chile with shit to express, I’m not the most articulate writer nor the most elegant, but I seem to get my points across. I always start my pieces on a personal note (As I am metaphysically doing now) and given the topic of my articles, I tend to write something about my experience as a gay man. This is mostly a way to give some structure to the article in a way I can relate back if needed, but it’s also a trick. You see, most people will feel pity for a poor 3rd world spic faggot being ‘’oppressed’’ by the religious right. I can get that sympathy, rather easily, call it a privilege if you may. So when it comes to talking about straight men and the issues they are facing, I imagine the hypothetical reader, not an MRA, red piller or anti-feminist, just the average person that has been indoctrinated (as I was) to feel no empathy for straight white males, and by showing my personal hardships as a parallel to the hardships of men in general in today’s society, I hoped I would be able to humanize a group of people that we have been taught are somewhat less than human.

    I was extremely naive. While ...

    Not only is the Ontario legal system actively fighting against video recording, they are breaking laws to prevent audio recording being made by lawyers, parties acting in person, journalists to supplement their notes pursuant to S 136.2b of the Courts of Justice Act.
    Closed courts are corrupt courts of injustice reducing the the public's faith in the legal system.

    I am probably the very last person you’d expect to write a piece for this publication. Why?, you ask. Because I’m what is commonly called an MRA, or a men’s human rights advocate. (I’ll give everyone a moment to put away the pitchforks and torches. No, seriously, put away the pitchforks and torches. Bear repellent too, folks.)

    If you’re still reading, I’d like to make a few opening statements before I explain my reasons for writing, concepts I hope we can all agree on (even you in the corner with the itchy trigger finger on the bear repellent): we’re all human; we all have family and friends; they love us and we love them (most of the time); we come from all walks of life — male, female, old, young, theists, atheists, black, white, gay, straight, bi, trans, tri … you get the idea.
    I’d also like to touch upon two other concepts I hope we can agree on: 1) human rights apply to us all, universally, without exception; and 2) open, honest discussion is best.
    With all those ideas agreed upon (and the safety locked in on the bear repellent), let’s get to the meat of this ...

    This is an interview I did sometime ago regarding acid assaults.
    As I've said before no excuse for this deplorable behavior and it should be called out for the vile act that it is.
    I am posting this now as I believe it to be relative considering the recent opening of borders to some who may engage in this crime.

    Miss Zulfiqar,

    Please call me Dan, no need for sir. I am just a human like yourself.

    Interview Questions
    Q 1: What do you think about the violence which is done from Man to Man?

    I, and I believe I can speak for the Men's Human Rights Movement on the whole, abhor any violence. It matters little who is inflicting the violence or who the victim is. When you engage in violence, you are morally and ethically in the wrong. I will add that self-defence should not be considered violence, as every person has the right to defend themselves when attacked. I would also like to add that Men's Rights Activists sometimes do employ literary tools such as satire to highlight the hypocrisy of some articles about violence that we respond to.

    Q 2: Some Cases in Britain are quite the opposite; attackers are throwing acid at people without any hidden agendas. What do you have to say about these kinds of cases?

    Many of you know I'm a big supporter of the Canadian Association for Equality.
    I attend many of their events and on occasion do help out when asked.

    Right now they have a unique opportunity and are asking for some help.
    There is a generous offer to match donation dollars by a very giving supporter of theirs. So I urge you to spread this around and if you are able donate.
    Remember donations will be doubled.


    Happy Holidays,
    Did You Hear Ryerson is Aiming to Ban a
    Men's Health Support Group?

    Send them a message. Contribute to our human rights challenge and make 2016 a break-out year for men's issues on campus

    University of Toronto. Simon Fraser University. University of Guelph. McGill. Queen's. U of Waterloo. U of Ottawa. And now Ryerson.

    The list of campus men's issues groups is growing steadily. And with six CAFE branches now in Vancouver, Calgary, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal we are positioned for an explosion in 2016.

    Imagine all across Canadian universities and colleges major speaking events like we've had now for 3 years at the University of Toronto on fatherlessness, suicide, violence against men and the status of males in post-secondary education.

    But there is one major obstacle we must overcome first.

    Student governments and some university
