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.
A superhero that the Hoosiers said goodbye to in a video from September 2007. They believed that he would love them, but sources say he knew too much. He wore a white spandex jumpsuit and was middle-aged. He was sent into outer space on a rocket, and was never heard from again. Rumour has it that he opened up a restaurant on Planet Mars.
"Goodbye Mr A, you promised you would love us, but you knew too much."
Another myth dreamt up by feminists, like the patriarchy
, just so they can have another excuse to hate men even more.
The only male rights activist groups out there are those regarding child custody laws, which exist because those laws overwhelmingly favours mothers.
Single dad: "I want to see my kids but my ex-wife is being such a bitch about it."
Feminist: "Eat shit, you MRA nutjob. You lot run most of the world as it is, sit down."
A feminist term, supposedly an insult, used in bitter retaliation towards men who critique their flawed ethos. It is a poor attempt to shame them as misogynists and women beaters and that, because if you question the feminists' cause, you are automatically anti-female.
Feminist: "Women need to stand up to the objectification of our gender in the media"
Male: "What about men, don't you have a problem with them being topless in adverts?"
Feminist: "No, go fight your own battles."
Male: "It's not my battle since you are the one who wants to end objectification."
Feminist: "You MRA bastard, I bet you beat your wife every night!"
Moving Right Along. Annoying, only slightly clever, smartass acronym - on equal par with "Anywho" as a means of transitioning from one subject - or from one period of awkward silence to another, unrelated topic. Sometimes they're even combined.
John - wondering aloud where his sister is to his best friend Fred; "The heck is Susan, she should have called me by now?". Fred; "She's probably still in bed, I dropped her off at 4 am this morning". (Awkward silence). Ben; "Anywho/MRA - how about those Washington Redskins!"
Men's Rights Activists. A group of individuals who, instead of railing against real problems men of all backgrounds, races, and sexuality face in today's society, focus insanely on the problems of specific heterosexual white men who can't understand why women don't want to deal with their self-centered passive-aggressive demands. Instead of overcoming their bitterness and learning how to build healthy relationships that will both reward them and their partner, they blame society, women, feminists, and rail against anyone, male or female, who attempts to bring healthy debate into their sphere. This tactic is brought into social issues as well, thus ensuring nothing gets done because everyone is busy blaming feminists and women for everything.
"The guy I met online was a total MRA. During the date he started talking about his past sexual encounters. When I shared mine, he called me a slut! When I called him out on this, he called me a feminazi!"
