The documentary actually gives some interesting bits of info I wasn't aware of. Like I didn't think the rate of males victims of domestic violence was so high It actually raises a couple of good points about how males can be in disadvantage in today's society and the lack of support networks for males. It had much less feminist bashing than I was expecting It didn't perpetuate the talking points of pathetic groups like MGTOW Cassie Jaye is a babe
Cassie Jaye claims she started the documentary as a feminist but seems to be unaware that some of the issues raised by MRA are also raised by some feminist groups which makes me doubt that she was actually a feminist. Most of the "evidence" provided to support points comes from anecdotes and there's no effort to corroborate them with statistical data. (specially the ones regarding parental legal issues) The nasty side of MRA was mostly left out while the good side of feminist movements was also mostly left out. There is no effort to actually reconcile both movements which I think was a missed opportunity. It was more one-sided than it claimed. The perspective of other groups other than white people is completely missing
Has anyone seen this documentary? I just finished it and I thought it was interesting but flawed in its intention although not completely. It raises some interesting points about the lack of support males have with their issues and the legal disadvantages they can encounter in the US just for being males. But I think it mostly misses the point and focuses on going against the loud and crazy version of feminism that has taken over in the US and ignores that there's actually a part of feminism that has very similar concerns to the ones raised by the MRA.
In the end I was surprised at how much the problems identified by the MRA can also be tackled from a feminist perspective. If only both groups talked to each other but they mostly just shout at each other.
