Hi Lisa, welcome to the group!
I HIGHLY, HIGHLY recommend you read the book Legalizing Misandry, it really is a must read.
Legalizing Misandry: From Public Shame to Systemic Discrimination Against Men
I welcome you, gentle readers, to click the link above leading to amazon. Read the description of this book.
Lurid and sensationalized events such as the public response to Lorena Bobbitt after she cut off her abusive husband's penis, prurient fascination provoked by Anita Hill's allegations about Clarence Thomas, and the exploitation of the mass murder of fourteen women in Montreal have been processed through popular culture since the 1990s to produce pervasive misandry - contempt for men, the counterpart of misogyny. Paul Nathanson and Katherine Young believe that this reveals a shift in the United States and Canada to a worldview based on ideological feminism, which presents all issues from the point of view of women and, in the process, explicitly or implicitly attacks men as a class. They argue that ideological feminism is silently reshaping law, pubic policy, education, and journalism. "Legalizing Misandry" offers lively and compelling evidence to demonstrate the pervasiveness of this new thinking - from the courts, classrooms, government committees, and corporate bureaucracies to laws and policies affecting employment, marriage, divorce, custody, sexual harassment, violence, and human rights.
Now scroll down to see what other "books" are "recommended" reading for someone looking at this particular book?
The War Against Boys: How Misguided Feminism is Harming Our Young Men
That BITCH: Protect Yourself Against Women With Malicious Intent
The Rantings of a Single Male
Taken Into Custody
The Myth of Male Power
So in these 5 books here we have at least 3 mainstream "men's rights" authors. We have one which degrades women (THAT BITCH?!?!?!). Two of the authors have less than stellar motives (one has actively tried to advocate for pedophile rights and the other hates child support). Need I say any more?
