This Video Shows Just How Absurd Anti-Feminist "Meninists" Actually Sound

As the feminism movement in the U.S. continues to build momentum, there's been the inevitable backlash from certain men's groups, so-called men's rights movement activists and even some self-described "meninists."

It might seem like a trivial claim, but one new video from the PR firm called Take It From Us has captured the dire situation of men in the U.S. Highlighting actual statistics, these self-described "meninists" are finally taking a stand.

Many in media, particularly media like Fox News, have tried to downplay the extent of the issues women face whether it's catcalling or the wage gap or birth control or women in government. However, as these "meninists" show, it's a conversation America needs to keep having. Creating an equal society for men and women isn't a controversial idea and it's something all Americans should be talking about.
