    Yes. Then women slapping men for forgetting their b’days is a women’s issue.

    DV is roughly equal, but of course, men have to be scapegoats, right? I
    mean, look at how civilization was built…

    *”These are men’s issues, first and foremost”*

    This is not what you may think. This is about leadership and bystanders and
    the problem with even having this dialogue,

    Fun how he misses violence towards men by women I remember my mom doing
    that for a long while the coin doesn’t stop on one side

    Violence against women: A much rarer occurrence than violence against men
    but with victims that society cares about.

    Something pointed out on Reddit recently: When women stand up to talk about
    gender issues, we’re often ignored or dismissed. The feminist movement
    (which by the way, despite its name is not only concerned with womens
    issues) gets a lot of bashing and (female) feminists are called many names,
    but for one reason or another male feminists face much less of this
    vitriol, and their voices are incredibly powerful. Let me make this clear:
    It does not emasculate you to stand up for the rights of others, and to
    acknowledge that gender ought not determine how we calculate the value of
    others, and how safe those other people feel on a day to day basis. It
    makes you very strong to say that, and your voices DO matter. You don’t
    have to be the “white knight” all the time, but if you agree with the
    premise of feminism feel free to add another intelligent voice to the

    On another level, yes sexism geared towards men does exist, and also causes
    problems. And yes, DEFINITELY there are men who are abused and attacked by
    women, just as there are men who are abused and attacked by men, women who
    are abused and attacked by women, and a myriad of other combinations we
    should consider. The premise of this talk remains the same: Sexism and
    violence is not a gendered issue, it is a universal issue. Honestly, this
    is why it is important for both men and women (and all other spectrums of
    the gender continuum) to lend their voices in revealing, acknowledging and
    resolving issues concerning sexism that occur to them on a day to day
    basis. Unfortunately right now that is not how discourse is panning out =
    there are more women concerned with gender issues than men. That absolutely
    has to change if we want a more representative and honest conversation
    about issues that concern everyone.

    The TED brand is ruined. Another wonderful platform ruined by feminism.

    What you DON’T hear about, and what men NEVER get credit for is how much
    violence and rape is PREVENTED by MEN! Just having a friendly guy around is
    one of the biggest anti-violence, anti-rape assets a women can have. This
    is another video promoting the feminist agenda and the vilification of the
    masculine. Men AND women – don’t buy it!! It’s not good for EITHER gender!

    Women’s rights is NOT the same as feminism. Feminism is thinly veiled
    man-hating. And by the way, in America, men get raped more than women, and
    the same is probably true of violent physical assault. This happens in the
    prison system, but is no less valid for being so..

  9. Carol Hathor says:

    I’m soooo very grateful that men are starting to stand up to other men and
    tell them that the way abusers treat women is wrong. Too many times, in my
    life and other women’s lives, women get treated like sh– and not a single
    man ever stood up to the abuser, even in the smallest way, and tell the guy
    he’s a jerk. Ever! I love this video!! A courageous man with a fabulous
    mission. This is THE issue of the planet, even above climate change and
    global economics.

  10. Kathryn MacDonald says:

    Jackson makes some amazingly important points. The most important being
    that the culture of sexual violence is perpetuated by a lack of leadership.
    Take a stand and don’t be a bystander who does not speak out against
    violence, abuse, racism when you see it.

  11. Kastella M. says:

    I suggest my fellow females not to go down this comment section as it is
    full of cold-hearted people who think the world revolves around them and
    so, they don’t want people to speak about issues related to another group
    but them.

  12. Stella blue says:

    0% of vids on YouTube pertaining to women’s rights do not have a barrage of
    MRA trolls arguing and insulting furiously. Just proves why we need
    feminism. Any dialogue is shut down 

  13. Raffi says:

    Every time men online try to shut me down for speaking up about feminist
    issues, I link them to this video. Maybe they’ll listen to a fellow man
    since they insist on “killing the messenger,” as he said.

  14. Kilian Muster says:

    Fact: 40% of domestic violence perpetrators are women. Could you please
    stop lying about men always being violent, always being the doers and women
    always being the victims and acted upon. You are objectifing them entirely
    that is sexist and doesn’t help anyone.

    about that?

  15. Protherium says:

    OK, I’ve seen this Feminist dude a couple of times on teH Internets arguing
    about women being violated and discriminated. Now I feel like reviewing his
    *0:45* – “male culture”
    What is this? As long as proper definition is absent here, it sounds like a
    typical Marxist term, much alike *working class and worker culture*
    (“Arbeiterkultur” in original German text of Karl Marx)
    *1:33* – “gender violence is a man’s issue” “gender = all about women”.
    Well, nowadays it is the case. Anything that has to do with gender issues
    has been engrossed by Feminism and its political narrative.
