    With the exception of trafficked slaves and members of certain cultural groups, nobody is oppressed in the UK. The OP seems to be an alternative take on the exaggerated styles used by radical feminists, who make up similarly spurious things explaining why women are oppressed.

    Different genders have different issues. But you'd expect that because they're biologically different. Nobody is oppressing anybody.

    Wow, look at the damage traditional gender roles are having on men. Guess we need some sort of movement which is opposed to these traditional gender roles.

    As a feminist (of sorts) I definitely think there are some ways in which men are disadvantaged relative to women, in certain circumstances. However these aren't overly concerning to me as a male. The gender inequality is far greater in the other direction - this can be quite easily observed through both quantitative data and even in our day-to-day lives. That said, we should try and take action on all fronts.

    I can't be bothered to argue wholly because 1. I agree with some points and am too tired to sift through which is which 2. It's hard to get invested in a thread that has been done so many times before. I will say though that male suicide isn't the fault of society, not really and work related accidents come down to men typically being in more dangerous jobs which they aren't forced into. They know the risks they're taking by going into certain fields of work just as the women do.
    The fact they aren't forced to take on dangerous jobs doesn't mean their choice wasn't highly influenced by societal pressures that do not apply to women.

    Most men do not choose these dangerous jobs to fulfill their dream career, but rather many sociological factors that are in play have ultimately driven them to these dangerous jobs - factors that evidently do not apply to women.

    But if I accept your argument, it can be applied to many feminist arguments also. The government doesn't force women to look after children instead of working. Women aren't forced to not take up science careers etc.

    Now with regards to male suicide, it is either a result of biology or a result of society. So you are suggesting it is a result of biology - yet most feminists claim that the brains of men and women are the same biologically. I'm not saying you take this feminist view, but I am typing this out for the feminists who do - they must accept that society causes high male suicide rates.

    You have deliberately misrepresented so many "facts" in your post, I just despair. Not even close to impartial.

    Men are heavily oppressed throughout the whole of Western society, especially when it comes to dating. Why, just the other day I was charming a long-time female friend of mine with my refined conversation techniques. I had known this girl for years, and when I finally confessed my love she said she wanted to be 'just friends'. Then I found out that she had a boyfriend; the typical brawn and no brains type, clearly inferior to me. But she wanted him anyway! Clearly Western society has created a world where men must compete like dogs for the affections of women, where only the strong muscular types have any chance of reproducing.

    The OP has a point. Feminists basically complain about stuff like this and they seem to get a lot of sympathy. In fact, Feminists complain about things even more trivial than this and they still get sympathy. In my opinion, if men have so many problems and still mostly don't complain, why do feminists even exist?

    Correction. Please look at the top right hand corner of page 17. Page numbers are done by that of the report and the contents table. Please learn to read before criticising me.

    The contents table clearly states that on page 17 you will find the demographic profiles talked about it the report. Furthermore you can also click on the contents table to take you directly to that page. When citing references it should be done to the page numbers of the report, not the ones that are automatically picked up on the pdf reader. This is standard practice for all.

    Please learn it in the future as not to embarrass yourself.
