MRAs attempt rebranding as ‘Men’s Human Rights Activists’

Last Spring, the Southern Poverty Law Center (splcenter.org) profiled a group of websites as promoting misogyny.

Among these were some popular spaces for “the men’s rights movement,” including avoiceformen.comthe-spearhead.commensactivism.org and the men’s rights subreddit.

On January 21st 2013 , A Voice for Men used the words, “privileged white bitches in our dust” to boast outranking Feministing.com via Alexa’s traffic data. (AVfM may not be aware of the demographics of Feministing’s contributors, or that Dr. King was not a gangsta rapper.)

Another url, Manboobz.com positions itself as a watchdog for this community. For example, a recent post exposed a commenter at The Spearhead who suggested something like prison “whorehouses” for women.

In the past few weeks, some MRAs have started to promote new acronyms: MHRA and MHRM, for Men’s Human Rights Activism and Men’s Human Rights Movement.
