Shouldnt women technically be fighting for mens rights instead of women's?

Because women have it easy.


Well not easy but easier compared to men.

Update 2:

    People should care about everyone's rights, not just one particular gender, race, etc.

    Effectively fighting for women's rights is fighting for men's.  For instance, domestic violence is a male problem more than a female one because men tend to be the perpetrators, but men are also sometimes victims of it and are not taken seriously.  Fighting for better childcare at work helps all parents, not just mothers.  And so on.

    "Shouldnt women technically be fighting for mens rights instead of women's?"

    I wouldn't hold women to this.  But definitely any feminist who claims she is a feminist for reasons of gender equality, then yes, they should be advocating for men to be liberated from their traditional gender roles just like women were allowed to do so, many decades ago.

    Men should also be liberated and allowed to be just as selfish as feminism allows women to be with regards to any expectations of them from the society and the opposite sex.  So men should be free from having to be civil in society, or to have to protect women and children or even other men in public.  They should be free from the expectations of having to provide for any children they sire, and they should be free from having to work if they don't want to, and for providing more than they consume from the society.  Men should be freed from being expected to marry, work, and partake civilly in their societies.  This would be men's liberation on par with women's liberation from the 1960's.

    All of those things are what society expects of men, particularly from the European Christian heritage.  Most women's former obligations under the same culture has been abandoned over the last 50 years or more.  Time for men to be as free as women.  And if society survives, then all is good.  If not then another traditional society will take over and we will see yet again that ultra Liberalism, or Leftism always lead to the death of societies.

    Feminists should be on the vanguard of pushing for this gender equality if they are true to their word and stated goals from the 1960's and 70's up until now.  But their strange ideas of liberating men is to have them become feminized rather than actually liberated.

    Women don't have life easy.  But women's lib only succeeded because good men were convinced of the need for improvement.  Where are the good women who can see the problems men face?  They certainly cannot be found in the feminist movement.  So feminists are intrinsically more evil than the male oppressors they condemn.

    So the single mom of 4 kids, living in a housing project off of welfare and food stamps should be fighting to get more rights for Jeff Bezos and Bill Gates?

    Sure, ALL women have it so easy and ALL men have it so hard.
