It is a common misconception that men who are straight, white, and “cisgender,” or identify as the gender they were assigned at birth, do not deserve a voice.

They have never had to work for what they have, and if they did, it was less work than what a minority or a woman would have had to put in.

To be racist or sexist towards white men is impossible, as white men have never faced oppression.

They are supposedly paid more, even though this has been debunked.

White men are the epitome of privilege.

They have it easy.

That is what they say.

As women, it is our responsibility to help end this undeniable war on men. Many women have become pitted against men in the name of feminism. In reality, it does nothing but harm. Men are consistently generalized and attacked, being labeled rapists, misogynists, pigs, and scum. They are attacked for their masculinity, told chivalry and courtesy are agents of sexual assault. Sitting with their legs apart on the bus is sexist, and giving a woman their differing opinion is “mansplaining.” They cannot do anything right in the eyes of many modern feminists.

Men are shamed for being men. Terms like “toxic masculinity” are drilled into our brains. Schools are now creating safe spaces to combat the supposed threat, which is nothing but a smear of all men. The family dynamic has been spit on and thrown away and men are blamed for destroying it. They are being forced to walk on eggshells and cannot do anything to defend themselves or change this without changing their nature and purpose.

No matter how hard feminists try to convince others that they are not anti-men, it is simply not believable. Their actions speak louder than their words, and their actions are vehemently and obviously anti-men. Men, specifically white men, are seen as the lowest of humanity by women like Taiyesha Baker, who posted a tweet saying, “Every white woman raises a detriment to society when they raise a son. Someone with the HIGHEST propensity to be a terrorist, rapist, racist, killer, and domestic violence all star. Historically every son you had should be sacrificed to the wolves…”

How is this feminism? More importantly, how is this okay or moral? This is corrupt, hateful, and the opposite of progressive or equal. This is the perfect example of the war on men we are facing.

What can we do to put an end to this? Women who are able to see through this anti-masculinity veil have a responsibility. It is commonly believed that any talk of differences between men and women is rooted in bias and prejudice. This could not be more wrong. We must recognize that men and women are genetically, physically, and mentally different in many ways. These differences do not equate to inequality, but natural diversity. We must make a point to treat men as our equals and ensure the women around us do as well. As women, we must advocate for equality, not superiority. We must teach our children to not think any less of a person due to their gender or any other quality. We must defend our brothers, fathers, and friends against this hateful rhetoric. This war on men is a product of women being influenced and encouraged by a harmful cultural bias. It is not “being woke”, independence, or feminism; it is hatred.

As women, we are incredibly strong. We have powerful voices and unwavering strength. Women are independent, courageous, and intelligent, but we must love and appreciate the men in our lives. They are also powerful and strong, intelligent, and courageous. They are deserving of our respect, as we are of theirs. It is not in our best interest to create any more division, and we must work to preserve and rebuild the unity between men and women in America and all over the world.
