Two interesting articles that I stumbled onto today. Reading articles like these, written by women, and representative of such a reasonable perspective on gender issues makes my day.
Are Fathers’ Rights a Factor in Male Suicide? By Wendy McElroy
Interesting and balanced overview of some father’s rights issues. Worth a read, IMO.
Wendy also has an interesting website called ifeminists.com which describes a sort of libertarian third wave equity feminism. It’s feministic but at least makes an attempt to include male/female equality as opposed to the typical feminist ‘women good/men bad’ dogma. As the content of the above article would suggest, her ideology includes some acknowledgment of both male rights issues and criticism of feminism. Just a shame that she has to call it “feminism” at all, IMO.
Male abortion rights? by Marianne Bossert
Another nice article. This touches upon a topic that I am developing for the book.
