MRAs: THEY’RE WATCHING YOU by Jon-Wood
What I like about Men’s Rights Advocates is how paranoid tumblr feminists are about them, while simultaneously claiming they don’t matter.Seriously, it’s hilarious. One second they’re a tiny bunch of insignificant, whiny dudebro fedora wearing friendzoned Nice Guy™ neckbeards,  the next they’re a serious threat to women and feminists, who deserve talks and protests and people pulling fire alarms to try and shut them down and an entire website mostly devoted to mocking them. In fact, the guy who runs that website claimed a few months back that MRAs are insignificant.This would be hilarious even if the single most popular MRA on Earth wasn’t a woman, and the talks that the fire alarms got pulled at were actually held by MRAs, instead of just being supported by ‘em. Again, the guy who runs that website I mentioned? Described MRAs as white men. Despite having a whole category on his website for that female MRA. It’s pretty common for even tumblrfems who know about female MRAs to conveniently forget about them when they want to paint MRAs as nasty, dangerous men.Heck, the stereotypes don’t even make sense with each other. Supposedly MRAs are always trying to make it “all about” male rape every time someone tries to talk about female rape (since, y’know, it’s impossible to talk about both male and female rape). They also allegedly support “the Patriarchy”. “The Patriarchy” that largely erases male rape victims and female rapists on both a societal and legal level that MRAs complain about all the dang time. Also, they apparently believe there’s some sort of Matriarchy and its biased against men.Another example is the way Pickup Artists keep getting called MRAs, even when they’re people who have explicitly said MRAs are morons, or “pussy betas” or something. In fact, MRAs and PUAs don’t seem to like each other very much, since MRAs want to expand men’s gender role, and PUAs want to exploit it. This is because some article from years back said that they were both part of the “manosphere”, and that got turned into “they’re exactly the same”.My absolute favorite part is when anyone, anyone at all, who disagrees with feminism and doesn’t have a female avatar or username gets called an MRA. Apparently, the only people who criticize feminism to any real degree are MRAs. Which is weird, because last time I checked, feminists were perfectly aware that most people consider the movement a bunch of man-hating bra-burners. In fact, there have been popular tumblr posts whining about how people don’t realize that feminism is for equality and how it’s all the Patriarchy’s fault. I have yet to find a single feminist explain how calling rape “(men’s) violence against women” doesn’t sweep male victims and female rapists under the carpet. Heck, I haven’t even got one to acknowledge the question, unless you count the ones who go “well, most rape victims are women and most rapist are men” even when we were just talking about how male victims and female rapists are much less likely to report. It’s especially when feminism is itself always going on about gendered language. Is it wrong to call firefighters “firemen”? Yep. Is it wrong to ignore rape victims and rapists? Not if they’re the right gender, apparently.I’m not even an MRA (I don’t think gendered advocacy is the way forward), but it is really hilarious to me how scared they are of them. MRAs, despite not having a fraction of feminism’s power and visibility, are now apparently the Boogeyman. And The Commies. And The Terrorists. All wrapped up into one.Hence this parody of that WW2 “He’s Watching You” poster./rant
