This notion of a "war on men" creates a "crying wolf" scenario when real issues that adversely affect men come up. We do a disservice to these cases by combating them through a use of the "war on men" claim.
If you were to take a look at "feminism" in Merriam-Webster's dictionary, you would find two definitions; 1. the theory of the political, economic, and social equality of the sexes and 2. organized activity on behalf of women's rights and interests.
In my opinion, this makes any sane, rational person a feminist. So you needn't be out screaming "war on women" to call yourself a feminist. If you believe that men and women should be treated equally in political, economic, and social affairs — then you are, by definition, a feminist. MORE
It is time opponents of abortion realise that the debate surrounding the legalisation of abortion is not simply a question about the biological health of the mother, or the imagined potential of the foetus.
The important question here is: How positive a step towards women's rights has the Irish government made if it considers death to be the only valid release clause from an unwanted pregnancy?
Okay, so maybe you are a man. Maybe you haven't had the easiest ride in life—maybe you grew up in poverty; you've experienced death, neglect, and despair; you hate your job, your car, your body.
[Excerpt] "I wish, more than anything, that I could just be a "humanist." Oh, man, that would be amazing! Because that would mean that we lived in a magical world where all humans were born on equal footing, and maybe I could live in a house shaped like a big mushroom and birds would help me get dressed or something."
WASHINGTON -- North Carolina House Republicans are pushing legislation that would restrict abortion access, attaching the measure to an unrelated motorcycle safety bill on Wednesday and giving neither the public nor Democratic legislators any advance notice.
On Wednesday morning, state Rep. Joe Sam Queen (D) wrote on Twitter, "New abortion bill being heard in the committee I am on. The public didn't know. I didn't even know."
"I wish I had more time to look at this new bill before I had to ask questions about it or debate it," he added.
The bill then passed the state House Judiciary Committee in a 10-5 party-line vote.
The stealth maneuver came after North Carolina Gov. Pat McCrory (R) threatened to veto a similar Senate bill on Wednesday morning. The Senate legislation would require abortion providers to meet strict licensing standards and would mandate that a doctor is present for the entire procedure.
Right before the July 4th holiday, North Carolina Republicans attached harsh abortion restrictions to an anti-Sharia bill in the hopes of sneaking them through at the last minute. But that move isn’t going unnoticed.

George Zimmerman said he killed Trayvon Martin in self-defense and got off scot-free. Marissa Alexander, hurting no one, fired her gun to scare off her husband who she said was threatening her and was sentenced to 20 years behind bars.
Only one comment will I allow myself regarding the travesty of justice now known as the Zimmerman Trial, and it has to do with this woman. In 2010, Marissa Alexander of Jacksonville, Florida, mother of three, fired a warning shot in self-defense against an attack by her husband. No one was hurt. Marissa was sentenced to 20 years.
