I Was a Men’s Rights Activist
As Told to MEL

While the article wasn’t a particularly enjoyable read, at least it was polemical enough to merit a few responses — this one in particular.

What I found most endearing about your prose is how you juxtaposed MRA and feminism from the get-go; placing an assumption that they were born of the same inequality, albeit with different agents.

You supplement this with a claim that some MRAs believe the movement to be “akin” to feminism, then you quickly rebuff this with an outright factual: “this is incorrect”. You offer no evidence or rhetoric to substantiate this ‘fact’, however you offer an alternate explanation that borders on the inane.

If MRA truly is — first and foremost — an anti-feminist movement, do you accept the logical deduction in that feminism is, first and foremost, an anti-patriarchal movement? If not, then you have committed the same logical fallacy two-fold.
