Feminism has failed to acknowledge the real issue when it comes to female equality: men. More specifically, the oppression of men. Our society relentlessly torments, berates, and psychologically abuses men on a daily basis. The easiest place to see this is in Hollywood.

For years, women have been stealing the livelihood of male identity by trying to erase the history of male-lead blockbusters. I call this phenomenon “male erasure.” The most recent example would be Ghostbusters (2016), a movie in which the originally male cast is replaced entirely by female comedians; however, the female power fantasy can be traced all the way back to 2015’s Star Wars: The Force Awakens. In this film, Rey, the main character, learns how to use the force much faster than her male counterparts and predecessors, sending a clear message: women have always and will always be better than men.

Other forms of oppression, such as misrepresentation, are also present, but it would take too long to go over all of them here. Instead, a quick example would be 2012’s The Avengers. In the movie, Bruce Banner, a male scientist, turns into a gigantic, green rage monster. Not only does this portray all men as easily angered and short-tempered, but it also presents yet another case of unrealistic body standards for young boys everywhere.

Male erasure and misrepresentation are not the only issues with society’s treatment of men. Men everywhere feel worthless because they cannot meet society’s standards on a daily basis. As a man, I am expected to spend my days working in a garage; as a man, I am expected to enjoy football games; as a man, I am expected to remain emotionally unfazed by the ending of The Notebook. It’s stereotypes like these that are most harmful to men.

Feminists would have us believe that the confident, outspoken woman is the greatest invention since sliced bread. But remember, men are the ones that have to deal with the consequences of demanding female bosses, argumentative daughters, and nagging wives . . . and we’re probably also the ones who invented sliced bread, along with many other useful staples. Nevertheless, if women are given an inch, they’ll take a mile. First it was voting rights, then it was equal pay, now it is our very manhood. So, be careful: Women have been dragging men down since the Garden of Eden. It’s time we stood up for ourselves.

Warning: this article is fraught with satire.

    I agree that he needs to back up his research before posting it for not only the school to see but the whole internet. this is unacceptable to say that woman who believe that they should be equals are affecting men in such a way. As a woman I believe that this is undeniably the most stupid article I have ever read in my entire life. ” Women have been dragging men down since the Garden of Eden” like srsly

    I completely agree. If this were anywhere close to a serious article it would be terrible. However, if it wasn’t clear enough. This article is SATIRE. Here is a definition:
    sat·ire

    noun

    the use of humor, irony, exaggeration, or ridicule to expose and criticize people’s stupidity or vices, particularly in the context of contemporary politics and other topical issues.

    This article is basically the definition of satire. It’s not supposed to involve any research; it is just a type of humor.
