Are activists of male origin that try and bring about issues that tend to be predominate male orientated and ignored by the majority of society in similar way that issues within feminism are. Its about equal rights for both sexes. Examples include... why are there more men suicides. Why is there 2000 domestic abuse centers for women but only one for men since men and women are equally likely to be abused?( That's not to say that those 2000 are not needed. The question is in regards to the number for men since men and women are equally likely to be abused.) What about work place deaths? Most of those are all male. Why? What about war deaths? Overwhelmingly men. Sentencing disparity? Child custody? Child support? False rape allegations? Criminal court bias? Failure to launch syndrome? Many of the issues discussed by Men's Rights Activists and Feminists are intertwined. When we can begin to listen to each-others issues rather than scream, twist, and ignore one another we can begin to solve problems and make make real progress.
Did you see Cassie Jaye's ted-x talk on Men's Rights Activists. That's some seriously powerful stuff.

Men, typically wearing fedoras, who actually believe that men have a systematic disadvantage as compared to women. Claims that feminism is against equality and oppresses men. Do not seem to understand the concept that giving another group rights that you have always enjoyed does not take away your own rights. Will use bogus facts, faulty logic, contradictory statements and basic insults. There is a grain of truth in the fact that MRA's state that mens' issues are equally important in achieving gender equality (something that most reasonable feminists agree with). However, that being said, they often berate the female gender in doing so. Most MRA's appear to be men that want to mask their prejudice in a socially acceptable manner, giving lip service to equality when it is clear they don't actually believe in equality. Basically, trolls.
MRA: "She should have worn less revealing clothing. She was asking for it."
female: "You're victim blaming. Nobody asks to be raped."
MRA: "I'm not victim blaming, I just think she was sort of responsible for it."
female: "Dude that is so sexist it's not even funny."
MRA: "Well, I'm a Men's Rights Activist! Fuck those feminazis!"
female: "uuuMMMM, actually, feminists want equality for both genders, and they aren't trying to take away men's rights! We believe men should be able to control themselves because they are rational human bei---"
MRA: "You just want to repress our natural instincts! If you put a steak in front of a dog, you can't just expect it to---"
female: "Dogs have discipline."
MRA: "How dare you compare men to dogs! Fuckin' feminazis!"

A men's right activist is a man (sometimes a brainwashed female supporter) who delusionally believes that despite global patriarchy men are somehow oppressed. Similar to middle class white dudes whining about "reverse racism". The power dynamics that exist in society and have for a very long time mean that men are the class that holds the power. They are the oppressor class so when bad things happen it is not sexism because men do not face discrimination, terrorism and forced impregnation based on their sex. Like's to claim "misandry" as if it were equal to misogyny. They don't seem to realize a misandrist is actually someone who is misanthropic.
The men's rights activist made a video called being prostituted an "exchange of goods and services".

A person (typically one directly opposed to third wave feminism) who believes that men's issues (almost 4x as likely to commit suicide, majority of victims of violent crime, 90+% of deaths on the job and 99% of combat deaths) are also relevant in today's society. Men's rights activists or MRAs for short promote equal treatment of men's issues and equal accountability for women.
