That’s why I included the Channel 4 link.
I am a good guy that respects women, but I feel that in society and mainstream media the vilification of men is reaching such a unpalatable point that cases like these where there are huge miscarriages of justice against men still need to be pointed out just to remind people that men are also mistreated and that the patriarchy doesn’t just give every man a free pass to do everything he wants. Those lawyers say there are numerous cases like this where police have been under pressure to please special interest groups so they go out to try and increase the number of rape convictions and end up cutting corners to get convictions. That is appalling. That man still has worth and rights despite being a man.
This guy could have been in prison for 12 years for something he didn’t do, is that girl that vindictively accused him going to go to jail? Will she face any repercussions for trying to ruin his life? Absolutely not.
It also highlights another issue, which is that of the media publicly naming and shaming defendants before their guilt or innocence has been proven. This guy will have this rape accusation stuck to his name for the rest of his life, just because he broke up with a girl and it pissed her off.
I’ve always been a big proponent of equality but until society starts looking at the plight of many men and the unfairly skewed issues many men face, we will never have a fair society. We can’t have a fair and equal society if the only platform and medium we use to advance that cause is Feminism because feminism is about just fighting for women.
Ideally we’d just need to have humanism or
I find it ironic that Feminism is given a free pass when it’s extremist outliers say #killallmen (which was a thing) but MRA is instantly tarnished and denigrated because of a few red pill nutters (I’m sure you’ll have seen my posts treating red pill with disdain on the forum). It’s as if men aren’t allowed to support each other or speak out about the issues that men face without being mocked and suppressed, simply by virtue of being men.
