MRA is short for Men's Rights Activist. MRAs argue that, as human beings, men should have human rights, due process in legal matters, and should not be subject to "reverse discrimination" in favor of other groups.

MRAs typically point to men's lower life expectancy in almost every country, higher rates of incarceration, more severe penalties for similar offenses, lower rates of health care spending and health research spending on men, higher suicide rates, higher rates of being subject to violence and murder including by women and when they are children, higher rates of genital mutilation, liability to conscription, higher rates of death at work, various disadvantages in divorce and child support, and higher school and college dropout rates, as reasons why men's rights should be on the agenda.

Feminists argue that we live in a patriarchal society, and therefore men have male privilege, which is invisible to them. As a result, any issues men have are insignificant and are only a result of the massive privileges men have. Thus no effort should be expended on men's issues until every women's problem is entirely resolved.
"MRAs argue that there should be a presumption of equal access to children after a divorce, on the basis that a presumption of residence with the mother is sexist and is often not in the child's best interests."

"MRA" means "men's rights activist."

An MRA is a white man who insists against all evidence and decency that white men are oppressed and than women and minorities are "revered and privileged."

An MRA would never support the rights of those men who truly are at a disadvantage in our society: homosexual and black men. Instead, he leaves campaigning for LGBT rights and minorities' rights to the "evil evil cunt bull dykes" aka feminists.

An MRA sits on a huge pile of white and male privilege and keeps whining that he is oppressed.
An MRA loves Pat Robertson and Bill O'Reilly, thinks that Fox news is the one and only reliable delivery mechanism for news, is a psychotic bible thumper who believes that women were made from "Adam's rib," wanks to Rush Limbaugh, supports the religious right, and has never finished high school.

An MRA is a troglodyte that writes “women’s rights --- ROFLOL!“ and “a woman is the useless skin around the vagina” on Urban Dictionary.

An MRA thinks that a woman should be locked in the kitchen and “slammed and beaten” (a quote). They are scared shitless that one day women might become truly equal and try to use all kinds of defamations and con artistry to keep women down.
MRA 1: Wanna hear a joke?
MRA 2: Yeah.

MRA 1: Women's rights!
MRA 2: HAHAHAHAHAHA

Acronym for a group called Men's Rights Activists.

I.E. - A bunch of whiny pedantic morons that think there is some vast Illuminati feminist conspiracy while seemingly ignoring the fact that their own gender runs the majority of the world.
- Hey, you hear about that guy in Marketing that complains about his ex-wife all the time?
-- Yeah, I heard that he just got a raise and tried to take his ex to court to reduce his child support.
- Jeez, what a MRA.

= 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.

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.

MRA means "Men's Rights Activist". No seriously. There are actually people who are so stupid they think that men are oppressed anywhere in the world. Just sit and think about the laughably small brain it takes to be an MRA.

While research on the feeding habits of MRAs is limited, feminists tend to speculate that they were fed paint in lieu of breast milk as a child. This would explain the intense mental retardation they have as adults.

Feminist scholars also have concluded that MRAs are actually crab people who intend to shove womin back into slavery (you might not notice too much of a difference), and then kill all the men and rule the earth themselves. It is thus suggested that you throw all MRAs on a grill and fry them to death. Do not eat them; the MRA carries many fatal illnesses such as stupid, herpes, and Feline AIDS (they are known to fuck their cats, just like New Agers!)
Tabitha: Fire up the grill; we got an MRA coming!
Jessica: Holy shit, would you look at the size of that ego! He must of drank a whole lot of chemicals as a baby!

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.
