Introductions / Message for Mr Bad...
Apr 30, 2007, 02:32 AM
Hi to everyone here at the SYG forums. My name is Kate, and I'm a 27 yr-old British woman living in Japan. I'm here after an invitation from Mr Bad on one of the threads at Hugo Schwyzer's blog:
Mr Bad: "I will refrain from thread drift here because for me and other MRAs it get us banned. If Hugo wants to start a thread about masculinity - healthy or otherwise - I'll be glad to discuss the topic with you. Otherwise you may come to Stand Your Ground, join our group and discuss it with us freely, with no restrictions or censorship other than abiding by our rules, which are quite reasonable."

OK, well I've read the rules and they're reasonable...I suspect that I am coming from a different political viewpoint than some of the posters here, so it should be interesting.
With that said, Mr Bad, let's have at it. I can repost my original questions or you can suggest another way to debate. I guess what I'm having trouble with is the idea that feminism's focus 'not harming girls and women' is somehow actively causing harms to boys and men.* I'm interested, too, in your definition of healthy/unhealthy masculinity.

*I don't mean to misrepresent your position BTW.  That's how I read your criticism at Hugo's. I hope you'll be able to clarify here.
