Discussion: The target is accused of being immature and/or irresponsible in some manner that reflects badly on his status as an adult male. Examples:
• “Grow up!”
• “You are so immature!”
• “Do you live with your mother?”
• “I’m not interested in boys. I’m interested in real men.”
• “Men are shirking their God-given responsibility to marry and bear children.”
Response: It should be remembered that one’s sexual history, marital status, parental status, etc. are not reliable indicators of maturity and accountability. If they were, then we would not hear of white collar crime, divorce, teen sex, unplanned pregnancies, extramarital affairs, etc.
It should be noted that these guys constantly look into women’s sexual history, call us cunts and sluts, tell us we have more reproductive rights and so on.
Another hypocritical part of the MRA’s is that they are against rape shield laws that protect victims from having to bring up their entire sexual history in the courtroom and yet here they are saying that sexual history shouldn’t be a part of accountability.
