The old Men’s Rights theory was that women were oppressed once upon a time, but not any more. The slightly newer Men’s Rights theory is that women have never been oppressed — they were pampered by their men, like a cosseted pet.
“It depends how you define oppression,” explains Brave-Evidence2793 on the Men’s RIghts subreddit.
A pet kept in a home (happy, healthy, cared for, fed, safe, and warm) is seen as oppression but the same animal on the street (hungry, alone, cold, unsafe, no healthcare) is seen as not oppression.
Er, what? Who other than PETA thinks that pets are oppressed?
Basically how feminism treats gender. They see women being cared for as slavery, and the men who are not cared for and have to take care of themselves (while also being expected to care for a woman) to be the slavers.
What world do you live in, dude? It’s not this one.
It’s like a bunch of fat cats pushing signs for #petequality, and then whining about all the discrimination they get when told “you can stop being treated like a pet when you take care of yourself for once”
What the fuck kind of drugs are you on, dude? Are you talking to cats or to women? Because cats don’t give a shit what you tell them because they don’t know what words are (apart from their names and “dinner”). Women might have a more, well, interesting reaction to this weird theory of yours.
