I care about the problems of men. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they have to be stoic beasts incapable of emotion. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they are lust-filled monsters incapable of controlling their own libidos. I care that the patriarchy tells men that they cannot be raped or assaulted because the patriarchy believes women are too weak and inferior to be dangerous.

Feminists did not do this to you, other men did

The thing about -isms is it actually does effect all parties yet in different ways. To not acknowledge the effects is quite blind sighted. One does not and should not invalidate the experiences of others. Yet should understand the difference effects they have on different communities. To be aware of this and put in the work to combat all types of violence with the needed amount of effort and action for each issue is the way in which we all can be protected by our society.

No one systematically benefits from The Oppression Olympics nor does anyone characteristically benefit from The Privilege Pedestal.
