Being a white man is so haaaaaard!

The main trait of MRAs and other male supremacists seems to be that in today’s society being a white man is soooo haaaaard. Barry Nolan addresses this pathological whining.

So I cannot, for the life of me, understand why so many white men like me can be found whining about how tough it is to be a white man. It’s a mystery to me how they came to feel so beset on every side by feminists, minorities, and “the system.” When in fact, the system is so stacked in our favor, it’s almost embarrassing. It’s like our mothers set up the world for us. For white men, life is almost like T-ball. We are almost guaranteed to get on base. But lately, some of us seem to be having issues with self-esteem.

So it’s especially strange to see white men like Senator Chuck Grassley (R-Iowa) and various “Men’s Rights” groups complaining bitterly about the re-authorization of the Violence Against Women Act, which may come up for a vote this week. Grassley and the far right don’t want to see it pass in its current form because it extends some of its protections to LGBT victims, Native American victims, and some illegal immigrants. Because of what? Because it should be OK to brutalize them?

    I was watching CNN this morning, and they shared this statistic:

    Approximately 33% of women who die, are killed by their partner, vs. only 5% of men

    but, but, the MRA’s will say, surely the numbers for men are higher, but this information is simply suppressed by evil feminazis! it’s all part of a grand conspiracy to keep men down, duh :P

    MRA’s are delusional – they really aren’t that much different than climate change deniers, or theists. Everything can be blamed on ‘hidden information or a ‘conspiracy’ or ‘God works in mysterious ways’ and so on…

      I think you’re being very unfair to climate change deniers.
