    I’m surprised and pleased that feministing decided to highlight the baby Veronica case. Too often feminists are on the wrong side on father’s rights issues. Last year The Michigan chapter of The National Organization for Women opposed revoking the paternity act,which denied fathers the right to establish paternity for children they fathered with another man’s wife.

    When feminists question the necessity of the MRM and suggest that feminism is the solution, you can ask them what feminists have done for fathers. MRAs already have examples of what feminists have done to fathers. If you believe that the MRM is unnecessary because feminism already addresses men’s concerns, I challenge you to make it so.

      Why would you be “surprised” about it? Feminists (and especially Feministing) is perfectly open to advocating for the rights of fathers all over the world. It depends on the particular situation of course, but still. And concerning the whole MRM, no the reason why a lot of feminists don’t like it is because many of their “causes” are VERY misogynist in many ways. Not to mention (excluding the whole “father rights” issues) many aspects of the movement are dare I say, ridiculous? And semi laughable? Because men in Western society, or more specifically white men in Western society, are the most privileged group. What kind of “rights” could they possibly need? What kind of “concerns” need to be addressed? Other than how many of them seem to feel “emasculated” by feminism.
