» The War On Men: 10 Ways Masculinity is Under Attack Alex Jones’ Infowars: There’s a war on for your mind!.

Something of a decent point is approached in 8 and 10- those are real issues that should be fixed.  Women do get too much of an automatic edge in custody, and male victims of domestic abuse are often treated like they don’t exist, even moreso than women.

The rest is total crap.  Well, the pay gap one also amost reaches a decent point- there are many factors other than workplace discrimination that lead to the pay gap.  Of course, most if not all of those other factors are themselves the result of discrimination- news flash: It still counts as discrimination if it happens somewhere other than your workplace.

And back to the domestic abuse thing- Yes, domestic abuse against men could probably use some more attention, but the best information we have suggests the problem is much worse for female victims.  Looking at just male domestic abuse, yes, it needs more attention.  Looking at all of it, the overal balance should tilt towards women.

But it’s just as bad, the writer is likely to say- Maybe.  Maybe men are abused just as much as women.  You know what would really help in getting a better picture of this problem?  Stop promoting this hypermasculinity garbage that makes men feel lesser if they are victims.  More men would report, we’d get a more accurate picture of who the victims are and be better able to allocate resources to deal with the problem.  Articles like this will only make the problems faced by male victims of domestic abuse worse.
