equal rights AND equal responsibilities between genders.The main contrasts between feminism and masculism is that masculism does not embrace victimhood, doesn’t want more privileges, doesn’t deny the other genders needs and doesn’t try to blame others for everything. Meaning no one is bad by default.They want equal rights and equal responsibilities and neither a “patriarchy” nor a “matriarchy” but a democracy. If you dont want to steal from others , realize your shortcomings are not everyone else’s fault and want to share burden and privilege between genders you are in essence a masculist (= gender equalist)
Masculist: This propaganda again. Ok then. Let me toss some masculism your way. Why is it that we have to ask the women out on the date? Why is it that we, frequently, have to pick up the bill for you self-sufficient females? How about the fact that women seem damn near unapproachable now bc we can’t even say “hi” without consent because it constitutes some form of sexual assault in their imaginations? The reason you gals can’t compare to men is bc you don’t let them in your lives & learn from them. That’s why you all end up lonely or reluctantly pregnant. Then you turn around & blame the men for that as well. We can just sit around & toss a few back without a care in the world. You feminists envy us for that bc your minds can’t stop. You want that peace of mind but the gears in your heads will never stop. When was the last time you ever heard a man yell out “stop sucking my dick or I’ll yell rape.” or say “Help me! This female is talking to me & I feel uncomfortable!”? Not very often. In fact, never. Why do divorces almost always end up with the mother having custody a majority of the time when it’s often the woman who is the problem? By all means, take my children. I’ll just have my free time filled up with other things.
Masculists argue men are negatively portrayed in the media and rubbish certain radical feminist claims that ‘the majority of men have the potential to be rapists’ or the portrayal that men are violent and are always the aggressors in conflicts and that women are victims and that any violence from women is a result of male abuse. They state that depictions of violence towards men in the media is seen as humorous, yet is taken more seriously when the abuse is directed at women.
They also address other issues regarding menÃ¢ÂÂs rights in areas where they are discriminated such as child custody, health expenditure, insurance costs, spousal abuse perpetrated against males by females and rape of males by females both not being taken seriously, male genital mutilation (circumcision) being socially accepted in many countries as opposed to female genital mutilation and other concerns such as suicide rates amongst men, education and employment and further criticisms of the media such as lack of positive reinforcement and role-models for young boys in the media, while presentation of positive female figures is a large aspect of much of the media.
Katie: Of course, thatÃ¢ÂÂs why I believe in a lot of the ideas in modern Feminism as well as ideas in Masculism!
Johnny grew up seeing white men dominate leadership positions and, as a fellow white man, felt entitled to wealth and power. He thus developed an inflated ego and a very poor work ethic, expecting success to be handed to him on a silver platter. Thus, when his much more hardworking and competent female coworker was promoted over him, Johnny exploded into a fit of rage, burning with self-righteous indignation over a woman taking “his” job. In response, he began spreading masculism memes on the Internet in an effort to salvage his bruised ego.
