The Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) declared Men’s Rights Advocates to be a hate group back in 2012. So how is it that, in 2014, the Doubletree Hotel in Detroit, MI, is going to host the first international conference for Men’s Rights?
MRAs are linked to the recent mass shooting in UCSB, wherein a young man declared that he would exact revenge on all the women who had rejected him. MRAs are linked to false rape statistics, further perpetuating the dangerous myth that women “make it up for attention.” MRAs are linked to threats of rape and murder against women who dare to speak out against them. Simply search the phrase “MRA” and you’ll see the violence, hatred, bigotry, and misogyny that MRAs support.
It is the responsibility of all people to stop the violence, and the first step is to stop the support of that violence. Tell the Doubletree Hotel that sponsoring A Voice for Men and hosting the Men’s Rights conference puts them in bed with domestic terrorism. Tell them to stop. Tell them that this is unacceptable.
Happening at the end of the month in Detroit. My fucking head hurts just thinking about all of these MRAs coming to my city. Fuck.
