Why Do We Need a Men’s Rights Movement

August 1, 2013

I need men’s rights because I am more likely to die young, and much less money is being spent on my health problems;
I need men’s rights because, if I am killed in an accident, people will care less than if a woman or a child is killed. News readers make this clear every time they utter the phrase “women and children”;
I need men’s rights because society believes that my life is worth less than a woman’s;
I need the men’s rights movement, because I am a human being.
And finally, I need the men’s rights movement, because when I attempt to address any of these issues, my co-workers, my government, my media, my peers, my family, and the larger society I am a part of rises in unanimous voice to condemn me as a monster – simply for claiming my humanity.

Men are human being too- and they have a right to fight for their rights as much as any group of people.
