Finding
The Male
Voice

Male Lions

You know you're a good guy, but you're tired of being demonized for being born with map-reading skills instead of fridge-stuff-finding skills, right? You genuinely like women but those borderline man-haters really test your patience, don't they? Kinda makes you understand why some guys have turned to the 'MRAs' and the 'manosophere'. You're afraid to speak out because you're not a woman and you don't know what it's like. How can you stand up to and challenge these aggressive victims (erp!) without coming across like an entitled jerk?  Let's work together to find that assertive yet compassionate male voice!

“The Good Men Project® is a glimpse of what enlightened masculinity might look like in the 21st century,” the press raved when we launched," they say, which was back in 2009 by Tom Matlack. The GMP is redefining masculinity for the 21st century, without the misogyny of the MRAs nor the misandry of victim feminists. It's the conversation, they say, no one else is having.

Don’t like how you’re treated? Don’t like the racism and misandry? Feel abused? Tell us why. Yes, I’m serious. I know it's difficult and others will hate you. But it's the only way. 

Women and feminists (they’re not necessarily the same) can’t go on about the difficulty for women telling their stories without a lot of shaming, harassment, and online abuse, yet turn around and do exactly that to men who have experienced trauma, also at the hands, more or less, of patriarchal culture.

Roy Den Hollander shows just how utterly silly and irrelevant ‘men’s rights’ has always been. The movement needs a reboot.

Creating a misogynist is a group effort.
