    Any man who feels like he's being treated unfairly because of his gender might be confused about either the treatment or the gender.
    Or both.

    Not just an attack on men, though that's probably how it's intended. It is really an attack on humanity as a whole; by way of the divine distinction between male and female, and the role that this distinction serves in the formation of marriage and family and society.
    The five great lies of the Left Wrong:
    We can be Godless and free. • “Social justice” through forced redistribution of wealth. • Silencing religious opinions counts as “diversity”. • Freedom without moral and personal responsibility. • Civilization can survive the intentional undermining of the family.

    No. I see law that is set up to automatically blame the male as an attack on men.

    I agree with you and I think it's very unfortunate and dangerous.

    What people are given to misinterpret as 'war' is merely the cumulative effect of a historical process that operates interdependently at several different levels, whereby phenomena we recognise as 'current events' are driven by generational, ideological inertia in turn lent impetus by broad shifts in awareness that occur across significant eras. That these surface ripples are mistaken for conflict rather than equilibrium (or even feedback) testifies to personal bias. What the majority understand as 'progression' is no more than projection of self-interest, as if to believe that the scales could be tipped via ego alone.

    Of those men who believe themselves to be thus engaged in said 'war', I can only suggest that in believing such, they align themselves, however unwittingly, with the one-dimensional, brainless femiclowns they might otherwise have managed to undermine. It's a little disheartening, if expected. Still, the learning curve allows for self-delusion.
    I disagree. I think that effort and integrity are functions of being situated such that one can be satisfied in the fulfillment of ones reasonable desires. For instance, a man who is hungry is much more likely to steal than one who is well fed. I think there have been efforts by some intellectuals that have resulted in men and women suppressing feelings that have led to neurotic behavior and is destroying the social fabric of society. Although in the ultimate scheme, things do level out. But that does not mean that one should not endeavor to correct localized disturbances.

    If the effort is to make the world "genderless" then how is it an attack on just men?

    Although is not exclusively an attack on men, it is an attack nevertheless. Furthermore, the rhetoric of such persons can at times be hostile to men specifically.

    Sorry but I think that's ridiculous. Like I've said before, every group has extremists and I'm sure there are some individuals that use hateful language but they don't represent the majority. Overall the evolution of what defines a man as a man I see as a deeply positive thing and of great benefit to men in general.
