Fox News has done it again…This time they put an article by Suzanne Venker on their website titled The War on Men.
What?? Now they’re just making this stuff up.
…Or that’s at least what I would’ve thought before I started this website. Since writing about rape culture, I’ve received A LOT of not only negative feedback, but downright hate mail. These comments so full of rage were from MRAs: Male Rights Activists, a group I had no idea existed until just a few weeks ago. I mean, aren’t they just fighting for what they already have: privilege and rights for everything?
I thought about posting a detailed response, but I don’t think I have the time and energy to point out all the ridiculous and fictitious elements to the article. It’s is incredibly sad and misinformed (Feministing has an amazing response to the article), but also disappointing since it’s written by a woman! How dare she tell men and women to adhere to roles that our culture is jamming down our throats:
“Fortunately, there is good news: women have the power to turn everything around. All they have to do is surrender to their nature – their femininity – and let men surrender to theirs.
If they do, marriageable men will come out of the woodwork.”
Fox News can’t be living in the same world as us…they and the MRAs must have been brainwashed into believing in an alternate reality. I don’t get it.
Okay, just wanted to get that off my chest. :-)
