  1. Danny, in case you haven’t had the pleasure of meeting him, is an active and vocal MRA (Men’s Rights Activist). He is one of two MRA’s we have helping with comment moderation.
    Actually just to clarify I don’t identify as an MRA. I can understand thinking that way but I’m not. Just for the record.

    (Back to your regularly scheduled programming.)

    • Quadruple A says:

      I can understand your reluctance with that label. The Good Men Project glossary defines MRA as an anti-feminist. I disagree with that strongly, but there is that label with its connotations. I think you can work to break the glass ceiling for women while also opposing prejudices against men that harm both sexes.

      • Yeah that’s a part of it. But beyond individual reasons for not taking on individual labels (because I also actively refuse to identify as feminist despite being called one of those before as well) I’m not too much of a fan of claiming labels.

        I think you can work to break the glass ceiling for women while also opposing prejudices against men that harm both sexes.
        Even simpler than that. I think its entirely possible to oppose sexism against men or sexism against women without denying or downplaying the other.

          Thanks for clearing that up Danny, and sorry, I didn’t mean to give you that label if you do not identify with that group.

          I think its entirely possible to oppose sexism against men or sexism against women without denying or downplaying the other.

          That is great. So totally agree. I think we could all do well to embrace that sentiment.

      • You can. But you’ll have damn few allies in that fight. Misogyny scored a real coup when it coopted men’s rights, and it’ll probably take a generation to change that.

  2. “The other is Peter, who, residing the in the UK, helps with our quest to have comments moderated 24/7.”

    Oo Peter’s in Ireland…you’r soooo gunna get in trouble for that. LOL. ;)

    Really though, looks like an excellent call.
