There is a hunger for fresh thinking and an optimistic, balanced viewpoint that does not vilify men and boys. #MeToo and the "Believe the Woman" domestic violence campaigns are just the tip of an iceberg, we need to beware the word "victim", it is undergoing a change of meaning and we must ask what someone means by "victim".
Areas of concern for men and boys include family courts, education, homelessness, suicide, the criminal justice system, rules of dating, false accusations, lack of reproductive rights, lack of positive role models in the media and entertainment, lack of male teachers, wrongful exclusion of fathers from their children, no after schools clubs for boys such as Boy Scouts when there is for girls with the Girl Guides and many other matters large and small.
Why is there no balance in these new laws? It seems that issues were promoted and pushed for by people with no concern or even an antipathy towards men and boys. Any cautionary voices seem to have either been ignored or vilified as being against women and girls, with those holding power either directly pursuing this goal, being naive, manipulated, bought or blackmailed. When you look back at the vast ocean of legislation it is all pushing in one direction, whatever you call this advance of female privilege it was surely was never meant to be fair. We desperately need a counterbalancing voice or movement.
Basic rights that were once taken for granted in our society have been thrown away in order to appease fanatical gender partisans. Free speech, innocent until proven guilty, the right of a legal defence team to see all the evidence, allowing evidence that would clear some one to be given in court, even jury trials are under threat now in rape cases. This is because these fanatical partisans want more prosecutions and convictions, they even set targets but having targets in justice is injustice, the circumstances of the each case are paramount. New rape laws make normal sexual relationships rape, if a women says so at any time in the future. Men in relationships who call to report being attacked by their female partners face suspicion but women are believed.
These matters are serious and there is no end in sight to the demands being made, were this to carry on indefinitely it would be it a truly scary future. However the projected course can be changed, despite the fanatical partisans being well entrenched in positions of power and even if most people have come to hold similar views due to the biased reporting they hear, people still really want a society that is to fair to all, they just need to be able to see what is actually going on behind the scenes and hear the truth.
I will not repeat all that has been said on these subjects over the years but simply put an opening paragraph or two and then refer to the recommended books, to certain links and to the "More Online" page. My concern is that things are getting worse rather than better so I am concentrating on what can be done. Please then return here to see the "Improve Society" page because we all need to get involved in politics in our daily lives at every opportunity we have, with family, friends and the world at large and then I hope change will begin to happen. We may not be interested in politics but politics is interested is us and will affect us whether we like it or not.

Introduction to the Disadvantages faced by Men and Boys - http://empathygap.uk/?page_id=22
The empathy gap is what has led to the areas of concern for men and boys in the sections below and is the reason it will be difficult to put right. There is a lack of empathy shown to men, this is true historically, now and no doubt in the future unless we constantly try to be fair to all and remain aware of our natural and unfair evolutionary bias. Survival of the species depended on the wellbeing of children, women have adapted this as a route to their own wellbeing and privilage, far beyond what is necessary for children's well being and even against it.

The wonderful book "The Empathy Gap" by William Collins provides all the evidence you could possibly need with detailed statistics, clarity and insight. It can not be recommended enough.

Marraige & Law
This is such a massive subject and the legal changes of the last forty years have led to a whole new movement - 'MGTOW' - Men Going Their Own Way, but it does not to be like this with the right laws. It the meantime for many men this seems like the best option.
It is too big a subject to cover here so please look at the links below and the book 'Making Love Great Again' Thank you.

A Domestic Violence Councellor speaks out "fathers and kids are often the biggest losers" - https://www.spectator.com.au/2019/10/a-counsellor-writes-to-the-family-court-inquiry/
First some statistics:
63% of youth suicides are from fatherless homes (US Dept. Of Health/Census) – 5 times the average.
90% of all homeless and runaway children are from fatherless homes – 32 times the average.
85% of all children who show behaviour disorders come from fatherless homes – 20 times the average. (Centre for Disease Control)
80% of rapists with anger problems come from fatherless homes –14 times the average. (Justice & Behaviour, Vol 14, p. 403-26)
71% of all high school dropouts come from fatherless homes – 9 times the average. (National Principals Association Report)
93% of the US prison population is male but 90% of these are from fatherless households.
You would think that in light of the statistics above that family courts would do everything in their power to enable children (especially boys) to live with their fathers on at least a 50% basis in a shared parenting arrangement as long as the father is willing and not proven to be a danger but the reality is very different in every aspect of law from the moment of conception to relationship breakdown and beyond. Is this what happens? No, children's interests are sacrificed to women's interest,
Governments reward single parent households by paying mothers benefits directly to them from tax payers, predominantly men. Domestic violence claims are allowed to go unchecked to exclude fathers. Sperm banks are allowed and these exclude fathers. Fathers have to pay to support children they are not allowed to see, even if they have the right in law they do not have it in practise because mothers flout the law with impunity.
There is a great article in the link below about how humans benefit compared with other apes due to having involved fathers.
and another on the fatherless generation https://thefatherlessgeneration.wordpress.com/statistics/
During evolution men have learned to protect and favour women as a means of protecting and favouring their own children, women and men benefited from the arrangement in passing on their genes. Women then stole the right to speak for the children to further their own interests, putting themselves above the children. Women as a group wanted the power to use as they see fit, they wanted men to be powerless. Women claimed the moral highground and have been shaming men ever since, dividing men and setting them against one another.
Parental alienation is not just something parents do to their children, although that is a huge concern, the family court system is the biggest offender and the harm they actively and passively do to children is immeasurable.

The cruelty of circumcision - https://www.ethicanmag.com/post/the-cruelty-of-circumcision
The Central Union for Child Welfare, Finland, gave the following opinion in 2003
'Circumcision of boys that violates the personal integrity of the boys is not acceptable unless it is done for medical reasons to treat an illness. The basis for the measures of a society must be an unconditional respect for the bodily integrity of an under-aged person. Ciircumcision intervenes in the sexual integrity of a male child causing a permanent change in organs and has consequences pertaining to both health and quality of life. The circumcision of girls is rightly considered a inhuman mutilation of the genitals and is punished abuse. Also boys must be guaranteed a similar protection by law. Accordint to the opinion of the Central Union for Child Welfare in Finland nobody has the right, on behalf of the child, to concent to theoperation, violating the bodily integrity of the child, if it not done to treat an illness.' Taken from The Empathy Gap.
If you have not read “The War Against Boys” by Christina Hoff Summers I highly recommend it, it is astonishing how the education system in western society has been skewed towards girl's ways of learning and it is astonishing to me how some feminists (particularly in the USA) fight to keep it that way in view of the harm it does to boys involvement and learning.
In the UK some steps are being made to take into account the different ways that boys learn but there is a long way to go and for some people simply recognizing that there are different ways that boys and girls learn is provocative, even though it was recognition of this that lead to many changes away from old ways of learning, in the first place in order to help girls learn at school.
Just take a look at the important information below, from the website of the Men and Boys Coalition http://www.menandboyscoalition.org.uk/statistics which is well worth a look.
62,000 fewer boys/men go to university every year than girls/women
By the age of 16, girls are over 20% more likely to achieve five GCSEs including English and Maths at Grade C or better
In 2015, in England 52.5% of boys achieved 5 A*- C GCSEs including English and Maths in comparison to 61.8% of girls
In England 26.2% of teachers are male, 15.2% of primary school teachers are male as are 37.6% of secondary school teachers.
8.5% of teaching assistants and 18% of support staff are male. Overall, 19.9% of all school staff are male
Boys are around three times more likely to receive a permanent or fixed period exclusion than girls
Fewer men than women are becoming teachers, GP’s, dentists, vets and lawyers every year. Female GP trainees outnumber their male counterparts by more than 2:1 across the UK and women are now in the majority for all age groups under 50 in the general practice workforce
In 2015/16, 28,000 fewer men/boys started apprenticeships than girls/women
The Department for Education does not fund any initiatives that just focus on addressing boys’ underachievement

How many rape allegations are false?
Rape, sexual assult, false allegation and celebrities - http://empathygap.uk/?p=2274
"Of the 45 celebrity cases listed above, 12 men were mostly likely guilty, 29 men were almost certainly innocent, and in 4 cases the matter is not clear.
Of the 25 politicians I reviewed in Part 3 I judge 4 were guilty and 21 not guilty.
Combining politicians and celebrities this suggests 50 innocent men out of 70 accused, a false allegation rate of a staggering 71%."

False accusation reasons from The Myth of Male Power – Warren Farrell
Motivations given by the women who acknowledged they had made false accusations of rape.
Spite or revenge 20%
To compensate for feelings of guilt or shame 20%.
Thought she might be pregnant 15%
To conceal an affair 12%
To test husbands love 9%
Mental / emotional disorder 9%
To avoid personal responsibility 4%
Failure to pay or extortion 4%
Thought she might have caught VD 3%
Dr McDowell found that most fake accusations are 'instrumental' – they serve a purpose.
'To my considerable chagrin, we found that at least 60% of all rape allegations were false'. Dr Charles P Mcdowell, Supervisory Special Agent, US Air Force, Office of Special Investigations.

To quote from the book Red Pill Psychology by Peter Wright and Paul Elam.
"Years back, in another life, I presented at seminars and conferences that provided continuing education units for professional re-certification. In one particular module, I used a portable grease board in front of my waiting audience. Without introducing myself or saying anything else, I wrote the words "Men are..." at the top of the board and then silently invited the audience to finish the sentence.
Almost invaribly, "pigs" or "dogs" was the first offering, accompanied by a room full of good natured chuckles. I would nod my head and write it down on the board and return to the audience, still silent, for more.
"Controlling," says one. "Afraid of commitment," says another. Aggressive." "Macho" "Afraid of intimacy" "Sexist," and "Power hungry." More of the pejoratives, and almost only pejoratives, would come from the audience till the board was full.
I then flipped the board to the other side. "Women are..." was the cue, and the answers were even more rapid fire than they were with men. "Strong." "Capable" "Empowered" "Sensitive." "Nurturing," and the like would fly from the audience to the grease board like a barrage of arrows, till that side too was full.
"What do you imagine, " I would ask, taking a strategic pause for a sip of water, "that these answers tell us about the real nature of sexism in the way we view men and women?"
Asking them a question with actual spoken words must have thrown them for a loop, because the stock response to that question was almost invariably a room full of nonplussed, cognitively dissonant faces. And the confusion usually gave way to irritation, clearly at me, though every answer on both sides of that board had come from them. And by the way, the participants in the crowd? They weren't accountants or nurse or teachers or financial advisors.
They were mental health professionals.
They were counsellors, psychotherapists, social workers and the like; the very people we love to imagine possess the objectivity to rise above the mindset of bigotry and sexism. And the people, despite our want of faith in their work, least likely to actually do it.

Birmingham Mail - 12th April 2019. “A judge told a banned drink-driver who smashed into three other vehicles that she would have been jailed if she were a man. Judge Sarah Buckingham said "alcoholic" Victoria Parry would have been "straight down the stairs" to prison had her sex been different.”
The Gender Justice Gap is HUGE and highlights the human empathy gap, an evolutionary and social bi product of a basic survival instinct of out species. Men are more expendable then women when it comes down to human reproduction, certainly but is this how we are to judge the value of a human being in a modern society and particularly when the world is already over populated, if you believe it is over populated.
Practically speaking on a sinking ship we should favour women and female children with a lesser number of male children and men as protectors and future protectors but only favour women up to the menopause for then men of all ages should be favoured over older women because they can still father children. In other words older women should be the last to be saved. Is this the case? No it is not, so why is that? Could it be because men love women and girls as a group as well as individually but women love men and boys individually but not as a group, perhaps as a group women view men as a utility. Perhaps this comes from the fact that most children are predominantly raised by women, particularly in their early years.

We have laws against undesirable human traits such as fraud, murder, theft, kidnap, blackmail, causing bodily harm etc. and have begun as a society working on discrimination, favouritism in job opportunities on the basis of race, sex, gender etc. now it time to move forward again and legislate to protect against gynocentrism, our inbuilt instinct to rush to assume female victimhood and male perpetrator status, or to assume that women should be helped and men should be able to cope, we need to move forward and to legally protect against this lack of empathy for men.
We should ask legislators, judges, jurors etc. to switch sex, gender and race in their minds before pronouncing judgements, deciding punishments and making decisions in general.
