Another incisive blog by Kat Haché.
The men’s rights movement is nothing new. Once women formed the women’s suffrage movement, men began to rally against them. When the two movements first formed, women were not allowed to vote, own property, have custody of their children, work in any significant jobs, or be educated equally to men.
The counter development of the men’s rights movement was to force women to leave their forward thinking, and force them back into the home, and give men all the power over them. Suddenly, men felt like the victims, because they could no longer force their wives to cook, have sex, take care of the home and be silent and property.
Since then society has come a long way, and while it would be true to say that some things have changed for the worse, for men, it would never be true to say that men have always been oppressed.
