There's Now A Campaign To End Discrimination Against Men, Or "Mancrimination"
"Here's to all the men who have been the victims of a society that tends to forget the struggles of males."
Maggcom, an Indian online magazine that covers fashion, lifestyle, and entertainment, uploaded a post yesterday titled "Don't Mancriminate".
The post was uploaded by a writer named Jahanvi Maheshwari.
The article features a series of posters highlighting perceived disadvantages that men face in society...
...along with this note explaining that "manism" is a movement to reclaim the rights of men, "the victims of a society that tends to forget the struggles of males".
Manism. This is to remind us of the forgotten gender, who, regardless of the situation, are expected to be such gentlemen. When women talk about being put on the same pedestal as men, simultaneously there is an unsaid expectation of chivalry out of them. It is time we realize that they deserve a break from being all heroic and they too suffer a different level of harassment – out of innocence or otherwise. Gender inequality bugs them as much as it bugs women. So, here's to all the men, who have been the victims of a society that tends to forget the struggles of males.
