Sorry, guys....she's taken
Bringing it up in the midst of a discussion about women's issues is just another form of "whataboutism".
It's always deflect, distract, and derail...that way you don't have to talk about something you don't want to talk about. That way you can ignore a problem and behave as if that's the same thing as solving it.
I recently attended a two day workshop about male victims of domestic violence. It was very enlightening. One of the topics that came up is that male victims of DV are often brought to attention just to derail conversations about DV toward women. This has done little to help bring awareness, as many people (professionals, even) take this attempt to derail as evidence that DV toward men is a myth. Very interesting! 🤔I do agree with you 100% though.
Rurite? I'm not even sure what you said.
No one should be made to feel like they are any less important or valued than the next person. The problems men face are just as serious, but often I see them made fun of or not taken as seriously as when women face the same problems. Bashing and abusing others just needs to seize altogether. I've had to deal with many stereotypes on my son, who is sensitive and caring, with a sense to know and express his likes and dislikes. I think it is utterly ridiculous that a boy has to explain his hair length, or that it's considered so dang wrong for a boy to have a baby doll. Expectations of gender roles put too much unnecessary pressure and stress into an already chaotic world. Irregardless of who, people need to be held accountable to their heiness acts of assault, abuse and rape. Stop shaming, name calling, and minimizing real issues. I always get a bit heated when any person is treated less than such.
