Where are the MRAs when black men are gunned down illegally by police?
Where are the MRAs when LGBTQIAP+ men are fired from their jobs?
Where are the MRAs when disabled men are legally allowed to be paid under minimum wage?
Where are the MRAs when undocumented immigrant men are exploited and villainized?
Where are the MRAs when Trans men are harassed, attacked, and misgendered?
Why do we never see Men’s Rights Activists actually acting for men’s rights?
Not only limited to these even!
Where are MRAs when discussing the discourse of men (especially men of other ethnicities/nationalities) who are not protected by their own state laws against sexual abuse/ rape?
Why don’t we hear the general society telling MRAs to go to particular countries like India, for example, where in their legal jurisprudence, women ARE LEGALLY more protected than their male counter-parts when faced with similar abuse?
In Section 375 of the IPC:
"…[it] does not include males as rape victims. Recently the government decided to amend the definition of rape and replace it with sexual assault instead. They believe that the amendment would give the section a wider jurisdiction and scope. But it is criticized that the proposed amendment would further harm the interests of the rape victims."

"375. Sexual Assault: Sexual assault means –
Firstly – Against the complainant’s will.
(a) The introduction (to any extent) by a man of his penis, into the vagina (which term shall include the labia majora), the anus or urethra or mouth of any woman or child–
(b) the introduction to any extent by a man of an object or a part of the body (other than the penis) into the vagina(which term shall include the labia majora) or anus or urethra of a woman
(c) the introduction to any extent by a person of an object or a part of the body (other than the penis) into the vagina(which term shall include the labia majora) or anus or urethra of a child.
(d) manipulating any part of the body of a child so as to cause penetration of the vagina (which term shall include labia majora) anus or the urethra of the offender by any part of the child’s body;
In circumstances falling under any of the six following descriptions:
Secondly – Without the complainant’s consent.
Thirdly – With the complainant’s consent when such consent has been obtained by putting her or any person in whom the complainant is interested, in fear of death or hurt.
Fourthly – With the complainant’s consent, when the man knows that he is not the husband of such complainant and that the complainant’s consent is given because the complainant believes that the offender is another man to whom the complainant is or believes herself to be lawfully married.
Fifthly- With the consent of the complainant, when, at the time of giving such consent, by reason of unsoundness of mind or intoxication or the administration by the offender personally or through another of any stupefying or unwholesome substance, the complainant is unable to understand the nature and consequences of that to which such complainant gives consent.
Sixthly - With or without the complainant’s consent, when such complainant is under eighteen years of age.
Provided that consent shall be a valid defence if the complainant is between sixteen years and eighteen years of age and the accused Person is not more than five years older.
Explanation: Consent means the unequivocal voluntary agreement by a person to engage in the sexual activity in question.”
Here, the actual clause(s):
In other words: Rape is not a gender neutral offence (As of 2012)
The laws regarding the remed(ies) of acting out sexual malevolences against women protect women to those of Western standards in India (With yet still concerns over holes in certain matters). The problem is upholding these laws and how POLITICIZED the matter is, really.
What must be kept in mind is the Code of Law in one country may be vastly different than what is practically practiced when the statute books are closed and the theories are put to the test.
Some countries that I can think up at the top of my head right now like this would be India and Afghanistan. There must be a boat load of others I missed, obv., I’ll leave those to another day.
In conclusion, instead of feminists having to be the only ones to cave their own grievances in order to “allow” “real” violence against women to be addressed (what the fuck does that even mean?!), Perhaps MRAs should move their little campaigns abroad elsewhere, because it doesn’t look like patriarchal societies exactly hold up the rights of males, either.
Fucking overly entitled piss-boys.
