Women helping the MRM.

It seems women are turning up on various websites saying they want to help men with men's rights issues. These same women also proceed to tell men how they should fight their battles and use the typical shaming language that a feminist uses. The problem is that these women are condescending, thinking they have qualifications they don't really have to help men.

Women may be becoming more aware of men's rights issues, but it is usually when it begins to affect their own lives, through their sons, brothers or husbands. For many years, men have been treated unfairly in court while women said nothing. I am all for women helping if they are sincere, but it seems some women become activists only when the corrupt system affects their own bottom line. It seems women are only noticing these issues now that enough men have become angry; I have to ask, do women want to help or is this damage control?

I think women should offer help in men's rights action when they can, and I welcome their sincere input. However, since women don't go to jail for twenty years for rapes they never committed, I think the leadership of any men's rights work should be in the hands of men.
