Best TED Talk ever? A feminist — Cassie Jaye — comes to terms with the men’s rights movement

The October 2017 TED Talk above may be the best one I’ve ever seen — “Meeting the Enemy: A feminist comes to terms with the Men’s Rights movement” — featuring documentary filmmaker Cassie Jaye, who produced the controversial 2016 film “The Red Pill,” see trailer below. Interestingly, the Tomatometer reading for “The Red Pill” was only 29% (based on 7 reviews) while the Audience Score was 91% based on more than 1,200 user ratings with an average rating of 4.6/5.

From the TED talk above:

There is no denying that there are many human rights issues that uniquely or disproportionately affect men:

  • Paternity fraud uniquely affects men
  • The United State selective service in the case of a draft uniquely affects men
  • Workplace deaths disproportionately affects men (93%)
  • War deaths overwhelmingly men
  • Suicide overwhelmingly men
  • Sentencing disparity
  • Life Expectancy
  • Child Custory/Child Support
  • False rape allegations
  • Criminal court bias/Misandry
  • Failure to launch
  • Boys falling behind in education
  • Homelessness
  • Veteran’s Issues
  • Infant Male Genital Mutilation
  • Lack of parental choice once a child is conceived
  • Lack of resources for male victims of domestic violence

So many issues that are heartbreaking if you are the victim or if you love someone who is the victim of any one of these issues. These are men’s issues, and most people can’t name one. Because they think men have all the rights, they have all the power and privilege. But these issues deserve to be acknowledged, they deserve care, attention, and motivation for solutions.
