Can you argue that a women claiming "all men are pigs" isn't sexist? Or can you argue that a men saying "all women are hens" is somehow more sexist because sexism against women is more prevalent? How come it is still socially acceptable (though not legally acceptable everyone) for a woman to hit a man? Because it is assumed that he can take it? There are obvious unfair gender roles in our society that affect the way we think and act but please understand that it is unfair to both genders and not just women. Men suffer from sexism to. In fact, established gender roles make it socially unacceptable for a man to claim that they are a victim of sexism. How is that fair? When a man claims that he is a victim of sexism, what do you automatically think of him? Does he become less of a man in your eyes? Does he seem weaker, sadder, less than he was before?
I am in no way trying to take away from the plight of women. I fully understand and support the struggle for equality and for a voice to the female population. I am simply asking for just that, an equal voice for everyone. And I am not blaming women either. I am blaming the culture that we live in, the culture that men created. A society where a women can dress as a man and be called strong but a man dressed as a women is called weak. Where a man that stands up and says he was raped is seen as less than a man. What kind of a society is this, where the worst thing you can call a man is a woman? Where if he is victimized, he is doubted, laughed at, and if believed, he is no longer a man? I fully support women's rights and the fight for equality, but I argue that both men and women (or women and men if you prefer) have voices in that movement. Men also suffer from sexism and a man's world.
