    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&quot. 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.

    I, Dan Perrins, have ended my hunger strike, as of today, Saturday May 16th at 3:00PM here at the Canadian Centre for Men and Families. Many of you have supported me throughout this period while some have questioned my motivation and goals. So let me offer some reflection.
    My decision to begin my hunger strike was not taken lightly. It was a decision I came to at the end of my 120 km walk from Dundas, Ontario to Queen’s Park as I considered what I could do next for those in need. It was motivated out of a deep sense of injustice at the lack of social support for men. I know this well as I am a victim of PTSD brought on by abuse and trauma. When I needed help there was nothing for me. I hoped that a shocking act like a hunger strike might firstly jolt people out of their complacency and secondly, earn a commitment from our government to open the province’s first shelter for male victims of abuse.
    I end my hunger strike having made a real breakthrough in opening up a frank discussion about ...

    Dan's Hunger Striker from Queen's Park in front of Ontario's legislative assembly continues. Now on Day 6, Dan reports that he is feeling OK, but is a bit tired and will look at shoring up his body with a multivitamin supplement.

    Despite wide support from the public on his walk, whom Dan reports as being fully aware that male suicide was a serious issue, the politicians he has encountered thus far in his protest have been entirely dismissive. Any attempt to engage them has apparently been shut down immediately with a universal response of "not interested", despite Dan reporting that it would be easier to get shelter from abuse for his dog Jeb than it is as a man. Speaking of Jeb, a number of anonymous allegations claiming Dan is mistreating Jeb (who is well fed, watered and exercised at the present time) have been made, no doubt with the aim of having Dan removed (so far without success).

    To re-iterate, Dan has stated that he will end his hunger strike when assurances are made that men in Ontario will receive equal funding ...

    At the conclusion of his walk for Men's Mental Health, Dan Perrins has elected to go on hunger strike outside the Ontario Legislative Assembly until his demands are met. They are:

    1) Full funding for male domestic violence shelters

    2) Prosecution by the DPP under Section 300 of the Canadian Criminal Code against those who have heretofore libelled non-feminists without consequence.

    For those with questions, there will be a Google Hangout with Dan at 7pm EDT this evening (10th May). To join you will need to add Dan Perrins on Google+ and download the Google Hangout plugin for your browser.

    I woke up at 6:00am again, fourth line and Lakeshore. Jeb and I had some breakfast, had a look around, did a little video ,then got packed up and hit the road. I spoke to a bunch of people today — a lot of industrial workers. I heard the same stories repeated again and again and again, "I lost this friend to suicide, I lost a brother, this guy, this friend to suicide..." It's been the same story for four cities so far and I don't see it changing for five and six.

    I had an interesting opportunity when I went up to Oakville Town Centre — I stopped by Sheridan and spoke with someone from student services who was impressed with how well I knew the topic, the stats and what have you. We spoke about the possibility of going in to give a talk — we'll see which way the wind blows I guess.

    I want to give a shout out to the transport, trucker trailer group there in Lakeshore on the east side of Oakville; they were great. We had a great talk and they let me use their outlets. I spoke to one of the engineers there who took over

    My day started at 6:00am. Jeb and I got up, repacked, and walked from near Stoney Creek over to Burlington. We overshot City Hall a little which meant we had to double back, but I got to hang more stickers, so that was cool. City Hall was a little trying to say the least, but I'll talk about that later, after I'm done with the walk. I also got to speak to some Firefighters—and man—they totally get it; they're the ones who are often responding to the calls. They see what happens when someone commits suicide. Not only that but they regularly see all kinds of carnage that the average person is just not used to seeing or even geared towards seeing. That has a serious impact on a person, so you know, they really understand. I also met a gentleman who lost three friends to suicide, and he told me how one had called another friend of his and his exiting message was “I can't take the wife any more. I can't take my job.” Then he drove his car into a teed-off street and that was that.

    As for me, the physical stresses are starting ...
