The term "MRA" stand for "men's rights activists."

It is a backlash group against women's rights and feminism. Other backlash groups include the KKK and "white pride" who wish to reverse the rights of blacks by arguing that white people are oppressed. Similarly, MRAs want to abolish women's rights by lying that men are oppressed. Also, groups like KKK have been known to support violence against blacks, and MRAs are known for their support of violence against women. Both groups argue that blacks and women should stop "whining" and that racism/misogyny are not real.
An MRA will tell you how much "man-hate" there is in modern society while he insists

- that women should make him a sammich and then suck his puny genitals,
- that it is justified that women earn less than men of comparable qualification, age, education, tenure, and occupation,
- that violence against women is no biggie and women "cry" rape anyway,
- that the porn industry is all about "female empowerment," and
- that women are inferior because ... the Bible said so, Shakespeare, Moore, Hemingway, his uneducated daddy, his baseball coach, the media, and 99% of male internet users.

= Men Run Amok

The most screaming announcement of insecurity and masculine shortcomings short of two pit bulls in a lifted 4x4 truck with a "No Fear" sticker on the window.

They never live up to the “no fear” slogan though.

An MRA is always suffering from Little Man’s Complex.

Hates women because they wouldn’t give him the time of day.
An MRA is an evil loser.

An "MRA" is a "masculinist."

A "masculinist" is "an advocate of male superiority or dominance" (Merriam Webster Dictionary Online).
Ergo, an "MRA" = "masculinist" is supremacis vermin with mommy issues and the urge to hurt, demean, and murder women.

Acronym for Men's Rights Activist/Activism

MRAs stand up against such nonsense as:
The fact that dads are second only to suspected terrorists in how they are treated by law. Fathers can be held without trial, charge and counsel (direct violations of the constitution), government officials can enter their homes and raid bank accounts, and they can be constantly monitored using a electronic device attached to their bodies. Divorced fathers are stigmatized as deadbeats even though outlandish and outdated formula’s such as the flawed Child Support Guidelines which ignore a wide array of realities. Divorced fathers who can’t make payments are often called deadbeats when in fact most of them cannot make the payments simply because they are DEADBROKE.

Insane policies like the British Airlines one that does not allow men to sit next to children, effectively branding all men as potential sex predators. This is not something that violates rights and that we should fight against?

The fact that dozens of studies show that in relationships women can be just as violent as men( not in self defence). Yet we see very little in the way of shelters and support for the men who are battered, and punishment for the women doing the battering. Police are trained to arrest men even if is clearly them who were abused.
An MRA is a real man. They are the men that are no longer putting up with the baseless and unfounded cultural norm and values system that ranks them as bad, always wrong, and deserving of punishment. They are the men that are fighting back against the increasing hostility and contempt that is being heaped on men by pop culture, the law system, and almost everywhere else in society in general.

Despite accusations by the brainless, lightweight, unenlightened, reasonless, dungheaps such as those above (using embarrasingly lame, uncreative, and juvenile humour), MRAs do not have a hidden agenda to restore historical patriarchy and remove rights from women. In fact, MRAs are more egalitarian then modern gender feminism, which turns a blind eye to injustices happening to men, doesn't say anything about equl responsibility for equal rights, and have an extemely one-sided notion of "equality".

Men's Right Activists

A group dedicated to father's and men's rights in the interest of preserving the interests of men in a world shared equally with women. This includes the deconstruction of modern education by radical feminists.
MRA is the natural development for the protection of male interests in the American Divorce Culture and the decline of family and fatherhood.
by Ian Blokesworth March 11, 2010
1) An advocate for a man's right not to have his Constitutional Right to be presumed innocent taken away from him, just because his accuser might be thought of as a liar.

2) An advocate for a man's legal right not to be defamed, by either slander or libel, from persons of either sex.

3) An advocate for the prosecution of those that make false accusations of capital crimes, regardless of their gender.

4) An advocate for the prosecution of those resorting to vicious slurs, harassment and defamation; regardless of their gender.
MRA's are tired of false rape accusers getting off scot-free, especially in cases where they openly admit they lied to the police.
