I feel this is very important.
It’s been apparent to me for a while that most men can’t really imagine “equality.” All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted.
I cannot decide whether this shows how unimaginative they are, or shows how aware they must be of what they do in order to so deeply fear having it turned on them.
"Most men can’t really imagine “equality.” All they can imagine is having the existing power structure inverted."
No way, man. Shouldn’t the responsibility to justify a course of action/belief/system rest with the status quo? In this instance, that’s you. You’re the one towing the patriarchal line, whether you like it or not. You seem entrenched in your particular dogma and I don’t think it’s worth my time or words to write you an essay. If you really wanted sourced and cited answers, if you wanted to gain a more nuanced perspective on gender equality (because that’s what we both advocate, I hope!), you could look up the myriad sources across tumblr or the rest of the internet, and do some research yourself. Don’t be the typical MRA who ignores hard evidence, and the lived experiences of real, live women. Me? I have more effective ways of helping my cause than throwing facts and figures at an irrational person who doesn’t want to change their mind.
isn’t it strange how most of the MRA issues are actually feminist issues taken from a different angle? For instance, women being characterized (by the patriarchy!) as inherently nurturing plays into men being denied custody.
This article is really upsetting. I think the situation is better in Canada, but I know some of the same pressures (to stop working to look after family, to work extra, unrecognized hours to gain favour, etc) exist, and are much stronger for female academics than for male ones.

Academic philosophy is an outlier within the humanities, with fewer than 20 percent of full-time faculty positions occupied by women. Commentator Tania Lombrozo discusses some recent findings that might help us understand why.
This is interesting.
Philosophy majors are not my favorite people. But this is interesting.
i never took philosophy because i thought it wouldn’t be useful, and i worried the readings would be too dense and dude-heavy.
Is this what the golden age of publishing should look like?
this so much.
