"Why the Men's Rights Movement Is Garbage"

Article here. Excerpt:

'I need to take a moment here to talk about the Men's Rights Movement, because there seems to be some confusion. Actually, there seems to be a whole lot of confusion.
...
Second of all, let's get one thing straight: men, as a group, do not face systematic oppression because of their gender. Am I saying that literally no men out there are oppressed? No, I am for sure not saying that. Men can and do face oppression and marginalization for many reasons -- because of race, class, sexuality, poverty, to name a few. Am I saying that every white cishet dude out there has an amazing life because of all his amassed privilege? Nope, I'm not saying that either. There are many circumstances that might lead to someone living a difficult life. But men do not face oppression because they are men. Misandry is not actually a thing, and pretending that it's an oppressive force on par with or worse than misogyny is offensive, gross, and intellectually dishonest.'

Why Anne's take on the MRM is garbage:

"Condemnation without investigation is the height of ignorance."
-Albert Einstein

I guess she won't understand until her genitals are altered against her will, or until she is the gender that gets 60% longer sentences for the same crime.

Naturally, the claim that men do not face discrimination for being men is demonstrably false.
