  1. Hi Factory.

    I haven't been here in a while, but I wanted to congratulate you on your video debunking the whole Patriachy Hurts Men Too meme.

    Where the idea contains a grain of truth is that men who hold positions of power in society generally don't put the interests of lesser men first, but instead put women's interests ahead of men's. So in that sense men are often hurt rather than helped by 'patriachy', as defined in the broadest possible sense. But feminists have consistently promoted the myth that men invariably conspire to put the interests of men in general ahead of women. So to the extent that the idea has any truth at all, feminists deny it anyway.

    The whole notion that feminists are allies of beta males taking on the alpha males is, as you note, a load of horseshit on steroids. Feminism has always primarily been about marginalising lower-status men and preserving the alpha males so long as they give women what they want and shaft lesser men.
