A common accusation aimed at Men’s Human Rights activists (MHRAs) is that they are violent, that the movement is violent, that it is motivated by raw, raging misogyny. The response typically is that all the actual violence seems to be coming from feminists and that this accusation is just the product of projection.
The violence around the men’s issues talks in Toronto are familiar to anyone paying attention, and the death threats aimed at Erin Pizzey once she went off the reservation and dared to start talking about men as victims of domestic violence and women as perpetrators are also a matter of record.
Now I find that this is not a new pattern of behavior. Erin Pizzey was not alone in the 70s when it came to getting death threats for her work on behalf of men. That was not a one off. It turns out Esther Vilar also received death threats for writing and then speaking about her book The Manipulated Man. Please go read the wiki on her and follow it to the article on the book itself.
I am looking for more documented instances of this kind of behavior. Thank you in advance.
