    Is There A War On Masculinity Going On In The United States?

    I was looking for some background information on another topic when I stumbled across a website. I thought it was very interesting. Here's the link

    http://womenformen.org/mission/

    Mission Statement

    America is at war with masculinity. For years, prominent women in media and government have used their perch to belabor the false notion that women are in need of perpetual justice and focus. It’s actually males that need attention.

    Women for Men (WFM) is committed to providing much-needed support for the American male who’s tired of being told there’s something fundamentally wrong with him—and mentally drained from being shafted in family courts and college tribunals, where men are assumed guilty until proven innocent. Decades of feminist propaganda have landed us in a place where women are hailed as heroes, and men are viewed as perpetrators—or just plain losers. That’s what WFM seeks to remedy.


    The battle of the sexes will begin to erode only when America stops making men pay for the modern woman’s so-called oppression. If we do, marriages and relationships will improve—as will the health of the American family.

    In the meantime, men are dropping out of college, out of the workforce, and out of marriage at alarming rates. Recognizing this, and understanding how it affects the well-being of women, children and families, is the first step. Too many people are afraid to disparage feminism because they think they’ll be labeled backward, rather than forward, thinking if they do. And you might be. But that doesn’t make it true.

    “I used to consider myself a feminist but mistakenly thought feminism meant equality between the sexes. In today’s culture, it means female privilege, and I believe discrimination against men is every bit as bad as discrimination against women—and I want no part of it,” writes Dr. Helen Smith in Men on Strike.

    That’s the attitude every woman should have.

    So what do you think? Is there a war going on against masculinity in the United States?

    Sure there are certain women in the media who are biased and attack 'masculinity', but I wouldn't call it a war, or an epidemic, or anything of the sort.

    Oh there is. Big time.

    We're five years away from the straight white male getting pelted with rotten fruit when walking in public.

    Unfortunately, everything masculine is being made synonymous with misogynistic, overly macho and ignorant.

    Do you have any opinions on why that is the case?

    There is no "war" on masculinity as they describe it. What they appear to be describing is the development of non-traditional views on men and masculinity. The development of such views is not a "war" on masculinity so much as it is a "war" the types of masculinity that have historically harmed society and its members.

    Related to this general notion of a "war on masculinity" is the fact that our white supremacist society has always and continues to wage "war" on black masculinity in addition to the masculinity of other groups of color including Asians and Middle Easterners. Black masculinity is consistently characterized as overly aggressive to the point of being animalistic in comparison to white masculinity (which is considered 'normal'). Asian masculinity is consistently characterized as meek and mild in comparison to white masculinity.

    I think it's because of the long history of males dominating the cultures of the world. While civilization was advancing beyond the stereotypical male/female roles in family and society, many men were suppressing any and all opposition to those standards.

    Sounds like the OP is reading too much of conspiracist Henry Makow (.com and savethemales.ca) who, among a myriad of other beauties, thinks there's a Lesbian/Marxist plot to take over the world.
    I'm personally sick of not being able to dunk a basketball because of racism.
