I did a Youtube search for ‘men’s rights’ videos made in the last week. I found this MGTOW video and it clearly displays what the men’s rights movement is all about: sexual access and control over women.
This is the locus of the entire reactionary men’s rights movement. Men view women as sexual objects to be used up. You all know men hate women who have sex outside of the feminine gender training that tells girls to be ignorant about their own sex drives and to disassociate with their bodies, to give control of their bodies over to men.
This is why women are treated badly. Our bodies aren’t supposed to belong to us and when a man can’t get access to women sexually, something he feels entitled to, he becomes a ranting misogynist.
I can’t repeat this enough. This is why prostitution is a thing. If you give all the socioeconomic power to one sex and nothing to the other, you have a breeding ground for the abuse that is the sex industry. It’s all about keeping women subordinate through patriarchy. Little girls need to reject gender training and to take back control of their lives and bodies.
In the beginning of the video, this dude is hung up on women’s vaginas. That’s all he wants. He dehumanizes women and tells everyone in very clear language, all he wants is access to women’s bodies. Since his entitlement is such that he thinks women are just out there for his choosing, he’s in a rage because women are starting to throw off gender training and live their lives for themselves.
Every issue that the Manosphere bleats about comes back to this central theme. Every single one.
Think about how MRA’s talk about rape. Men typically use alcohol to rape women. It’s one of their common strategies. In this day and age, the discussion of how men do this is front and center and men are angry that it’s being addressed. The spotlight is shining on them and their propensity to rape through alcohol. This is why MRA’s whine about women who drink around men. In their minds, they’re losing the last tool they have left to rape.
Abortion is another topic in the Manosphere that they don’t talk about much but some of the louder voices do. Paul Elam is clearly against abortion. He and his MRA buddies are pissed they can’t control women’s reproduction as much as they used to. This is why the Republican’s are so hung about trying to pass as much legislation they can to restrict women’s ability to have an abortion.
It’s never been about men’s rights. It’s about men’s desire to control women. MGTOW isn’t about men going their own way. It’s about a toddler having a tantrum thinking a woman will come along and feel bad for his little fits and decide to pity him. ‘I’m going away now! Do you see me going away?’
‘Please give me some sex, please?’
It’s men who think woman are natural going to come along, like mommy, and care for the poor sod who just shat his pants.
It’s why I think the term reactionary fits them to a T. It’s a reaction to women making a step forward in controlling their destiny.
Oh, if only she didn’t have a vagina that I feel entitled to!
