Talk about a one-sided article. The fact that Dr. Farrell was speaking isn't really that newsworthy in-and-off-itself. Men and women guest-lecture on university and college campuses all the time.
However, to mention OTHER individuals critiques without giving Farrell an opportunity to respond is just bad journalism.
In addition, the main news of the night was how the 25+ police officers had to physically clear the entrance way before the event could take place because of the illegal protest action taking place.
A man speaking on a university campus. Not really news. A fight between police and activists in Toronto. Definitely news.
My own experience as an attendee can be viewed at this web link:
Wow. Not one mention of the violence initiated by the feminists at this rally. Guess who won't be getting into Ryerson!
This article was pretty bad. I mean, you didn't even try to make it seem as though you were getting both sides of the story.
But I guess I shouldn't have expected too much after that disgraceful Behe article.
Just another example of someone who doesn't know what they are talking about feeling qualified to make ridiculous statements. You should be ashamed.
i don't recall dr. farrell has ever promoted rape, or rape culture (whatever that is). i have noticed, however, that many who oppose his views enjoy using "scare quotation" when describing "men's rights". (yah, right. men have "rights"?)
farrell's message sooner addresses suicide rates, education, health issues, and the plight of 2 parent households than it does maligning women and promoting rape.
once again, the feminist protesters prove their unwillingness to listen, and would rather shout over any dissent towards their utopian views. unfortunately, this behavior is as rampant as a toddler with a temper tantrum. no nobility, no honor, foul language and an incapacity to truly evaluate and argue.
this experience has led to my distrust with the feminist monopoly over the word "equality".
men's rights activism is just a backlash of feminism. if feminism disappears, so will mra's. let us speak, and listen to what we say.
