    Just a few things:

    1. No I don't own a fedora or have a neckbeard.

    2. I am for equality, I just think that men's rights shouldn't be ignored.

    Anything else, ask away.

    They work to a certain extent. In terms of raising a child for example, a father cannot breastfeed, and of course many scientist say this is an important part of raising a child. In terms of in the workplace. In terms of people dressing or acting certain ways, I don't really see and issue, dress how you want and act how you want, gender shouldn't really matter. In terms of things like dating, I.e. the man should pay etc, it should work both ways, there shouldn't be a stigma around the way people act in situations like that.

    Overall, I'm traditional with views around raising a child, but fairly open minded in most other areas.

    Hope this answers your question!

    What men's rights do you actually advocate for?

    What MRA figures would you highlight for those who believe MRAs are just anti-feminists?

    Male rape victims, male suicide, male homelessness, failings of the education system for men.

    In 2012, the male rate of suicide was three times that of women.
    Men are now 5% more likely to be victims of violent crime than previously.
    In 2010, nearly 6 million men were recorded as victims of partner abuse, nearly 2 million more than women.
    One in ten men have experienced sexual assault.
    One in 7 men have experienced severe domestic abuse.
    One in for men have been assaulted by a partner.
    Only 8% of services dealing with domestic abuse are aimed specifically at men.

    And how do you accomplish your advocacy?

    Thanks for providing the statistics although I spoke poorly and didn't say what I actually meant. By figures, I meant people. Are there any high profile MRAs who you could point people to who dedicate their time for men's rights? There are those who believe that MRAs are just anti-feminist chauvinists so if you had examples of well meaning people who are fighting the good fight - that'd be great.

    Well, previously I have set up a campaign and we raised £250 for a small charity focusing on male rape, it's a small amount, but every little helps I'm trying to start a fundraiser soon to help the victims of homelessness, focusing mostly on men, but if we can help female victims too that would be great. I generally try to give out leaflets advocating my views, and showing that females are victims a lot of the time, but male victims are increasing too

    Oh, well Paul Elam would likely be a great example, he started A Voice for Men, which is trying to make male issues heard. Herb Goldberg has written many books on the issues of the male-female relationships and views. Richard Doyle as well wrote a few books on male rape. If you look around it isn't just anti feminists, there are those who just want men to be heard too
