So Dr. Warren Farrell went to lecture at the University of Toronto. His lecture was blocked by protestors, who spoke furiously and abusively towards those trying to attend the lecture (including a young man wanting to get some understanding of why two of his friends committed suicide) and had to be removed by city police. The way they spoke about him, these feminists, he is apparently a rape apologist and a misogynist. What a monster he sounds! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iARHCxAMAO0
Please take a look at this before reading further. Now: what kind of monster is he? In fact Warren Farrell used to be a supporter of second wave feminism, and then became aware of his own skepticism about patriarchy theory. He has since become a lecturer and writer on how each sex has its own inequities, and addresses how to deal with imbalances in relationships, the workplace and so on. He has spoken on the importance of fatherhood, on despair and suicide in young men and on how boys are troubled; he has not in any way tried to take away anything from women’s rights. Of course the reason why he’s hated are for two reasons.
One: he is a traitor to feminism. He doesn’t believe in the patriarchy.
Two: he expects women and men to take equal responsibility for their actions. Shocking!But essentially Dr. Farrell states that the Marxist-Feminist perspective prevails at nearly all universities in our culture, so ideologically speaking it is horrifying and infuriating for them to hear anything that disagrees with them. You can hear young women saying that men’s rights groups are hate groups. They honestly believe that. If someone like Warren Farrell can be seen as the enemy, then all of us are.
