Emma Watson’s speech at the UN calling for men to rescue feminism raised some eyebrows. Ayami Tyndall has heard it all before and calls her on it.
Don’t teach soldiers how to protect themselves! Teach enemy combatants not to shoot!
A bit at a time the larger world is waking up to the Issue of domestic violence against men. Ayami Tyndall reviews the refreshing artwork of “Saint Hoax” but notes the artist still has gynocentric blind spots that need addressing.
Unless governments and societies start rooting out our gynocentric biases, efforts to bring equality to men and women are doomed to fail. Ayami Tyndall explains the rot that wrecks us all.
The feminist chant for men to ‘check their privilege’ is one we are all familiar with. Ayami Tyndal notices an unspoken implication in that little phrase that might provide an “Aha” moment for readers.
Most who come to the men’s movement have experienced what they call a “red pill moment,” where suddenly they realized the world wasn’t what they’d believed it was all along. Ayami Tyndall looks forward to the day when such awakenings are rare.
As with domestic violence, the slur “like a girl” is seen as a gender-based assault on women alone. Ayami Tyndall explores how both women and men have their behaviors shaped by this phrase.
Overall, it appears the culture and our politicians are grudgingly admitting that fathers matter to children after all. But it’s nowhere near enough, says Ayami Tyndall.
The essence of freedom, and democracy itself, is the right to stand up and speak unpopular ideas without fear of violent reprisal or persecution–and only by the constant challenging of old ideas can society improve itself. Ayami Tyndall explains.
