I've been watching the Men's Rights movement, such as it is, for some time, with a mixture of amusement, horror and disgust. It's a movement that's bad for everyone -- for men, for women, for children, and probably even for my cat, though I haven't yet quite worked out how. The best thing you can say about the Men's Rights Movement is that it doesn't, and hopefully never will, have anything near the impact on the world that feminism has had over the years. And this blog, in its own little way, hopes to help keep that way.
So in this blog I hope to take on the assorted myths promulgated by the Men's Rights Movement, to dismantle their rickety logic and their dubious statistics. I'll round up assorted examples of misogyny, mendacity and just plain stupidity from MRA's online and off. And I'll highlight some of the best anti-MRA arguments I can find.
As for the boobz in the title, I do not refer to those rounded lumps of flesh and fat on the chests of women and some men. I refer to the classic definition of boob as "a stupid or foolish person; a dolt." Too many MRA's, alas, fit this definition to a T.
Oh, and the Z on the end of "boobz?" Someone else already took the "manboobs" URL. So I improvised. I'm crafty.
