Men. Yes, we’re getting there.
I’m listening to a rather disturbing documentary* on the BBC about rape used as a weapon of war – on men.
Coming with a warning that some listeners would find it disturbing, it goes on to interview men who’ve had very terrible experiences in which other country but the Congo.
What makes these tales even sadder, is the fact that many of the aid organisations fighting sexual violence conveniently ignore the problem of rape against men.
It is quite appalling when you hear aid workers doing this. But it isn’t just in the Congo. It seems to be a cultural thing in recent times. Men are being underrated and overlooked in the name of “gender equality”.
I first got the idea to write this post while listening to the BBC Forum episode on equality. One panelist made mention of the fact that in the name of equality, schools are now admitting students and giving them merits based on sex, not performance. That is worrying.
I personally wonder what the current strain of feminists/social equality bums** would do when women are now more represented in government and industry. Will they cry on the side of the men also?
There’s a lot of bull in it.

**I’m not a chauvinist. If anything, I’m a realist when it comes to this issue. And feminists get on my nerves in many subtle ways. I’ll go vent on WHYS later this morning.
