Abolish Father’s Day? Is Misandry (man hating) Killing Our Men?

Article here. Excerpt:

'If you were to suggest abolishing Mother’s Day, there would be a hue and cry of ‘misogyny’. If you were to suggest renaming Mother’s Day to ‘Special Person’s Day’, thousands would march in the streets in protest.

But abolish Father’s Day? Hmmm, yes. Let’s have a conversation about that. What a jolly good idea. (I jest of course.)

This morning Good Morning Britain hosted a segment seriously discussing the abolishment of Father’s Day. But it’s not a new discussion. Two years ago, Judy Finnigan on Loose Women, thrilled the largely female studio audience by saying, ‘I think mothers deserve a day rather more than fathers.’ She got away with it. Had a man mumbled, ‘I think fathers deserve a day rather more than mothers,’ the nation would have screamed ‘Misogynist!’ and his career would have been summarily over.

But it’s perfectly fine, apparently, for the shoe to be on the other foot. What is it called? Is there a word for it? Actually, there is: misandry defined ‘dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against men (i.e., the male sex).’ But that’s okay, apparently.

It’s perfectly acceptable for women to hate on men without being labeled a ‘misandrist’.'
