7 Ways Men Are Also Discriminated Against In Our Society

Feminism doesn’t mean waging a war on the male gender, as many have come to see it. Although more often than not, the rights of women are usurped by men, the enemy is an entire mindset that is ingrained not just in the male gender. In fact, in many ways, they too fall prey to the conservatism and low tolerance for individuality that our society imposes on everyone alike;

1. They are more pressurized into choosing “substantial” fields the likes of medical and engineering.

6. The fact that they are also made subject to domestic abuse is often ignored and sidelined.

This in no way is meant to downplay, say the domestic abuse that women face, or the discrimination that they’re subjected to generally. This is meant to show you that men, too are discriminated against, as this is something we usually fail to notice.
