Woman Gives A Perfect Example On How To Respond When A Misogynist Asks You ‘But What About Men’s Rights?’

TikToker Alla, who is known online as TheRussianRoulette, is sick and tired of men hijacking conversations about women’s rights by saying, “But what about our rights?” So she made a video to try and put an end to this.

In the recording, Alla explains why she thinks such a question means nothing on its own, and why dropping it in the middle of a conversation about another sex does nothing for men too — Alla believes this discussion requires much more research and overall involvement. Not just cheap linguistic bait.

Men dominate key institutions, such as government, politics, management, trade unions, churches (and that’s a topic for another time); yet some suffer considerable marginalization as evidenced in higher rates of suicide, psychiatric illness, and alcoholism than women.

Men’s relatively low life expectancy, poor health, accidents, suicide, and morbidity are just a few big problems they currently face. Be it sports as the dominating lens of masculinity or the pressure to be a financial success, they can suffer many, many sleepless nights and face other challenges as a result.

The video already has over 880K views

According to The Men’s Resource Center of West Michigan and its counselors and therapists, men often struggle with anger and stress management, anxiety and depression, being a good father, as well as sex and intimacy, and that’s just scratching the surface.

You might think, “why should we care?” But just think of the impact men have on women, children, and other men. We should talk and try to solve their struggles, but these discussions and actions shouldn’t sacrifice women’s rights.

Here’s what people are saying about it

Exactly. Any person who really cared about "mens rights" would be a feminist since most mens problems stem from sexism. Mainly toxic masculinity (society forcing men to act in a specific way in order to be acepted) and lgbt+ phobia

True and lets be fair here, the "ways" man are supouse to be were creaated by men, women untill recently really did not have had much of a say... So mostly for men the problem is other men (mostly, not always) sinceo most women who support that were tought to follow what the men thought was right.

How about custody equality? Also don’t want my ex wife not to have equal parental time or equal decision making abilities because I’m not a f*****g monster who would do that to someone I love; marginalize one of their parents.

Yes. I think we should be talking, and acting, about the ills men face in our society. However, using it as some sort of rebuttal when we try to talk about women's issues is, as you say, whataboutism. We can care about more than one thing at a time. One group experiencing issues doesn't diminish the issues another group faces. We don't have to drown out each other's voices.
