How to contribute to Men’s Rights Movement in India?

Time and again, we are reminded that this society is male dominated and patriarchal in nature. What does it mean?

It means that men live in a have-it-all world. They have all the rights and privileges and they control all the power in the world. And this is how it is justified or evidence of its presence is presented:

  1. Men don’t have to leave their homes after getting married.
  2. They don’t need to adjust with another family.
  3. They get inheritance in ancestral property.
  4. Their child gets their name.
  5. Their name doesn’t need to change after marriage.

While all this might be true, the following is also true.

  1. Men need to become financially stable before getting married.
  2. They need to continue to remain so lifelong, which means they cannot stop working and sit at home.
  3. They cannot pursue their interests as it may not generate enough income for the survival of the whole family.
  4. Even if their wife works, they should not expect her to share the financial load, if she does it by her own choice, well and good.
  5. The risk of bringing a new person into their life and family wrests entirely with the man and one wrong decision can ruin his life.

The real agenda of Feminism is to spread male hatred

Feminism has got nothing to do with “Women’s Rights” and they do not even care what happens to women. For them, attacking men and vilifying them, spreading hatred and venom against them is the top most priority work.

Recently, Union Minister for Women and Child Development, Mrs. Maneka Gandhi opened a conversation on twitter saying that for the next 2 hours she would take questions. Below are some of the screenshots of the replies she gave. Continue reading

Do I fear as a man?

The internet is replete with stories of the fears being associated with “Being a woman” in a patriarchal society. And as the society is considered patriarchal, should it be assumed that a man need not fear?

As a man, do I need to fear?

Before we answer this question, let us look at this case below,

In latest case, man is forced to push two-wheeler for 2 km after looters fled with his bike keys after robbing him;

Often men are looted, mugged, robbed on brazen roads and in the process also get injured or killed and many such men have lost their lives but there has never been a hue and cry in the society and media about the same. No questions have ever been raised about the safety of men or no steps taken to make the streets safer for men.

Individual Contentment is a Man’s First Priority – International Men’s Day Theme 2014

International Men’s Day which falls on November 19 is celebrated for being a man. It marks the positive male role models, highlights the contributions that men make towards the society, honor their sacrifices and raise the issues that they face in a society that generally puts men to more test than women.

Men are required to prove their manhood at every step in their lives. As a result, the society is generally very harsh on them. Unlike women, men do not gain their manhood biologically, they need to earn it sociologically; this process makes men extremely competitive in nature and also view other men as rivals, enemies, and competitors who are obstacles in their path towards attaining manhood.

The other flip side of this fallacy is the fact that men who cannot attain their social manhood find it very hard to survive in this society because for the society, men are like disposable entities and a man spent off with his utility with a failed sense of manhood is useless and can be discarded easily.

Is dowry law abuse the only issue men face?

Come July 2nd 2014 and the nation went berserk on a landmark judgment passed by the Supreme Court of India directing the police not to arrest without following due procedures in dowry cases and there were reactions coming in from all sides – positive and negative.

Some over-enthusiastic people even went to the extent of thinking that dowry law has now been diluted and men can breathe easy as its misuse would be curbed now.

And thus it made me think – “Is dowry law abuse the only issue men face?

Also, how does one judgment ensure that men won’t be arrested in other false charges? In a society, where we have a plethora of anti-male laws, such a hope is far-fetched and wrought with imagination.

In the last one week, I came across 2 such instances wherein men have been arrested under Section 107/151 on a complaint of creating public nuisance without trial or investigation.
