Social Justice Warrior websites falsely label those opposing new Mad Max film as Men's Rights Activists

Rebel Staff

Websites pertaining to social justice have exposed their contempt for Men's Rights Activists by blindly attacking anyone who doesn't share their views on feminism and labeling them as MRAs to fit their anti-male agenda.

In the process, they tarnish the reputation of actual MRAs.

There has been some opposition to the role of female characters in the new Mad Max film – Mad Max: Fury Road because of the role of strong female characters.

If you were going off reports from Buzzfeed, Jezebel, and Salon , you'd think the opposition was from Men's Rights Activists. This is incorrect.

Websites citing 'Return of Kings' as MRA opposition to Mad Max couldn't be more wrong.

The blogger responsible for the 'Return of Kings' article, Aaron Clarey, has even said he isn't a Men's Rights Activist in a YouTube video.

In addition, the 'about' section of the website makes no mention of men's rights.

On Jezebel, an article titled 'I showered in MRA tears this morning' says, “On the popular MRA site Return of Kings, vlogger Aaron Clarey opined that he’d been “tricked” into anticipating “what is guaranteed to be nothing more than feminist propaganda” that has “ruined and rewritten” the Mad Max franchise.”

Maybe if sites like Jezebel would spend more time researching instead of blindly attacking anyone they think is a Men's Rights Activist they'd be taken seriously. Alas, this isn't the case.

Then again, how can anyone look a website that posts headlines such as “I showered in MRA tears this morning” and have even an ounce of respect for it?

@ Bravo, Peter and Glenn Craig…See I knew one of you could find some rights :) and you make some very good points that are true…so what’s next?

I detect a deep undercurrent of bitterness…somewhat like I have been told over and over again is the bane of feminists…bitterness at what could be, but isn’t.

Perhaps if we all (male and female) could see that we have plenty of rights and stopped thinking in terms of what avenues are closed to us we might be able to go forward (not by government intervention, either, which is artificial)…after all those around us have to deal with these difficulties all the time…we could learn from the successful ones…like Republican,Ben Carson…whose mother did not excuse their terrible circumstances or permit him to lose hope when everything in his life was against a successful future.

I think that what you perceive as loss of rights is actually a loss of entitlement and privilege…you still have plenty of rights if you are willing to drive forward…yes you have less privilege than your ancestors and you are no longer entitled to any future you choose in this country ( but this just puts you on a level field with all the others, now)…but are you going to let that keep you down or defeat your children? Privilege and entitlement are dangerous bedfellows and make a man either poison, corrupt or weak. Like their opposites, powerlessness and lack of privilege they are not a bed to sleep in but a catalyst to effort….as the saying goes “when the going gets tough, the tough get going”….so what are you all going to do about your ‘loss of rights’? After all, one of the reasons we are in this mess is that we CHOSE to have smaller families to enable us to become more wealthy…then we had to bring in other cultures to make up the loss…we brought some of this on ourselves…so we have to get over it and get on with it…and git ’er done…and put all our energy into turning things around…

Actually – I made a mistake. White males do have a couple of rights. The right to work their arses off. The right to pay a huge chunk of the Canadian tax bill. The right to be bullied by media and women. And the right to be spit on by minority groups for making this country what it USED to be.

And finally, the right to stand back and watch this country be torn apart by special interest groups, mass immigration from countries that want this one to be like the one they left, entitled court systems, entitled leaders who want power and do not care how it comes, enforced diversity (qualifications be damned) and much, much more. I believe my male ancestors would shake their heads if they could see what is happening to the country they built from scratch.

White male builders – horrible creatures – we need to destroy them immediately – that way we can become another third world country – looking for a hand out from those white male built countries that at one time did not mind lending a helping hand – until that hand was chewed off in the process.

Oops – wait a minute – most of those white male built countries are in trouble. I wonder why?

Now – let’s call me a racist – after all you cannot be racist unless you are white – all others simply claim victim status.

My proof?

Thousands of years and the mid east and Africa are still nothing but cesspools. And never will be anything but cesspools in the life time of any person reading this. Three hundred years and this country was growing. That has now stopped – white male builders are now the hated species.

The parallels are not allowed to be mentioned in public. Never.

@ Peter N….“Men have rights? " Well, the white Anglo-Saxon men, don’t. Those rights did end years ago.

Peter, surely you jest? Let’s have the list here…

Very glad that you have visited Return of Kings. I see that Roosh will be in TO Aug 15 – and if I can manage it, so will I.

“Men have rights? "

Well, the white Anglo-Saxon men, don’t. Those rights did end years ago. If you are a “minority” male, you will have rights.

Exactly correct Bravo Zulu I would have said exactly right but as you say those were stripped away years ago.

Men’s what?

Men have rights?

I thought that all ended years ago.
