Here's the thing. Women's studies and gender studies are one. If I applied to a course titled Gender Studies, I can guarantee you that 85+% of the material would be based on women's studies, and books written on women.
I don't know if it's true, but I'm getting the feeling that there are a select few people in power who don't want men to have THEIR movement for rights. Women's rights have advanced, and men's are still in the dark ages. I'm not talking about laws, or actual governmental rights, but social rights. It could be some men up top who are holding onto the old values, or it could be some misaligned feminists who want to hold men back. I might be wrong, but the truth is that as it is, men aren't looking like they'll advance for a long time.
I mean, my cousin is married and his wife recently had a baby. They were going over names over Christmas(which was celebrated at my house as normal) , and the argument was that Taylor was too girly of a name for the soon to be baby boy.
Taylor, historically, was very likely a boy's name. Only in recent years have some girls adapted it, as well as other boy's names. Women are wearing clothes designed for men now and no one scoffs, but if a guy wears something remotely feminine, his sexuality is called into question for some reason. It's a double standard that's growing as years pass, and men are falling by the wayside.
It's not like everything has to be gender neutral. I'm just saying that there need to be changes made.
For instance, I read a study that stated women were the cause of more non-reciprocal violence in relationships...yet if you're a guy and you go to the cops about your wife or girlfriend abusing you...your manhood is called into question. They'll probably still do their duty because how quick people are to sue somebody if they're wronged, but still, in many courtrooms, people stereotypically take the woman's side in domestic assault charges almost by default, as does the jury.
Where are the places men can go when they're raped? Doors close in those facilities generally geared towards women.
Where can men go when they're abused? What resources do men have in divorce court? What about men applying for jobs who are turned down because the company doesn't have enough women employed to warrant another guy(even if there aren't any women applying for the job)?
What about school curriculums? What methods are being put in place t ensure that boys are being taught as efficiently as girls are being taught? That activities and courses include both male and female oriented tasks that aren't biased?
Men are taught to be silent about their troubles. That speaking your weaknesses is the ultimate weakness. Where women are socially allowed to complain, men aren't. Men can be blamed, women can't.
Somehow(sadly), the feminist movement brought upon a state of affairs that offers a single gender's views of morals and law, and reality.
In my social sciences class, I was told by the teacher to be quiet in a class discussion because I was male and therefore had no right to speak on the topic of equal rights. I almost vomited. I filed a complaint to the principal and nothing was ever done. I dropped out of the course because I was getting failed for not allowing myself to be some male toilet for all of her excreted hatred.
So yeah. Men are taught not to worry about their rights, and not to complain. There a lot of good feminists out there who care about equal rights(read: not true equality, which is not attainable), but there are a few out there taking advantage of the good ones and manipulating them in sick ways to change our society to their will. And they will that no men's rights course will pop up. They will that men don't ask why they're being oppressed more than ever nowadays, and to shrug off that oppression as natural behaviour.
