The issue of Misandry comes to ATS eh?
Well it's about damn time if you ask me. This is one of the biggest problems in our society and is a conspiracy theory to boot.
Really though folks, egalitarianism is the only way forward, we need to break down gender barriers, keep these fools from making us fight against each other and fight against all isms that are not equal.

Narcissism affects both sexes so I don't know why you're only trying to label all women as such. You must not have much of a social life if you think there aren't men all about themselves out there.

I was willing to listen to your point of view until I got to this part:
Despite these compelling figures, children are systematically removed from the natural fathers who are their most effective protectors.
"Most effective protectors"..dude, there is no force more formidable in nature then a Mother with kids. Go to a store and watch a mother walking with children. Just try and get between her and her brood.
Then watch a dad. Even my husband admits defeat in this department. He notices all the time that mothers naturally keep their children directly in sight, while fathers get distracted. It is not an insult, it is probably simply because moms are more in tune with their offspring. After all, we carried them in our wombs for nine months..they were attached to us, shared our life system.
Just tonight I was watching a guy in Target busy looking at action figures while his 3 year old was out of sight, pulling down pool chemicals.
And the 55% of mothers data is misleading. It makes it seem like moms are just sitting around, offing their kids. Most mothers would give their very lives for the children. It just sadly happens that in 55% of child murders, it happens by the mother. Since often this is a situation where the dad is nowhere to be found
Keep telling yourself that there's no "formidable force in nature" than a mother with kids.PLEASE.If anyone messed with my daughter I guarentee you I'd be MORE formidable than you.And I'd do a heck of a lot more damage than you,too.Please,if you husband isnt watching his kids than well guess what? He's not a very good father.No offense.And I don't buy your Target story.How do you know the 3 year old was his if he was out of sight? Were you stalking them? Nice try.edit on 7-6-2012 by nightstalker78 because: (no reason given)
Not going to bother arguing with you. Okay, Mr. Scary Man..you can do more damage.
And the kid was 3 because I intervened before he pulled chemicals on himself. I asked him where his parents were and he walked over two aisles and pointed at his dad. I told the dad where I found him and he was looking at Halo action figures when we were talking. He made a sheepish comment about keeping a better eye out. I asked him the age and he said he was 3. Nothing mysterious about it.

There are Feminists wanting special rights over men, and now you have Men's Right Activists wanting special rights over women.

The reason that there's a men's rights and a women's rights is because everyone experiences totalitarianism and oligarchy in one form or another. This false dichotomy of man vs. women, patriarchy, matriarchy are completely false.
If you are getting preyed on, it is probably because you are perceived as weaker. Not because you are a man, not because you are a woman.

I was taught to be exercise my manners, especially around women. I have been rebuffed more than a handful of times for opening a door for a female. I must say when in a professional situation it is very difficult to decide if I should hold the door from the meeting room for a lady or to walk out ahead of the woman because we are "equals" in the workplace. I am honestly trying to be a "gentleman" (as I understand the definition), but I do not want to upset the female for whom I am holding the door. A Catch-22...edit on 7-6-2012 by Dookie Master because: misspelling of "been"
