Research, share, speak out. There is much that can be done and much that needs to be done,
A shift in public opinion and awareness is not something that can be achieved quickly, but changing the direction of western society under feminism is urgent, so please use your influence to speak up for equality of opportunity. Another requirement is to stand your ground and call it out if someone treats you or someone you are with in a disparaging way due to being male.
Talk with friends and family where opportunities arise, get involved with speaking up on social media. Be honest, don't pretend to know everything if you are unsure and always think about the language you use as it frames the debate. The aim should be to appeal to people's sympathies and persuade people particularly listeners and readers, of your view, rather than just win a point for the sake of it. Practise makes perfect, stay calm and polite, call out people intimidating you. Make sure both you the person you are debating with share the same meanings of words like 'victim' and 'equality' if in doubt ask them what they mean by the word. You can not debate a word with two differnet meanings.
Whatever your political leanings, speak up against the discrimination and lack of opportunity that men and boys face in education, the family, relationships, dating, domestic violence, suicide, health, exclusion or bias when applying for jobs, unequal treatment in the legal system. Do this at every opportunity and create opportunities, there are so many areas that need discussion. There is an urgent need in the UK for a minister for men and boys. Someone who could create opportunities to have a debate about these matters, too often these matters are being shutdown and diverted by hostile members of parliament.
Men spend time with your sons, daughters, nephews, nieces, talk to friends children, they get little time with men at school and in their lives generally, give them a positive impression, show you have time for them and care for them. It helps younger children, especially boys if you read to them. Boys particularly need a safe outlet for all their energy.
If you are a granddad offer to help look after your grand children and show them your love and kindness, be yourself and they will see another set of values that will broaden their thinking.
Women please make a space for the men in your life to talk.
Everyone please talk and share your insights and concerns with friends and family and any who will listen.
Make use of social media to put the case for men and boys and their issues, if you are concerned about your views affecting your career or safety, given the current crazy climate then use an alternative name.
Be polite, honest and don't exaggerate the plight of men and boys or the lack of concern shown or the bias in society, there really is no need. Tell it straight.
Learn all the facts you can about the issues affecting men and boys, rehearse what you will say so that you can answer difficult questions. Not may people speak up at present so you will watched carefully to see if you can make valid points and convince others, if you can you will start to convince others that men and boys have legitimate concerns if you get it wrong you will confirm them in their thinking and it will be harder next time. If you practice you will get better, you will come up against people trotting out arguments they have heard and made a thousand times so it is much harder for you, until your arguments become almost automatic. Watch Videos of people who argue and debate well. Keep calm and gently point out when people are being rude, people don't like being accused of being rude and others present will then be watching to see if the other person can avoid being rude in making their case, if they can't it looks like their case is weak.
Find an organisation to help, ask what they need, possible help fund them, deliver leaflets, share any ideas you have with them, none of us have all the answers.
Consider trying for a position where you could gain some influence to effect change. Teacher, politician, board of governors, advisor, contributor to a local paper the possibilities are endless. Try and speak up at work regarding politically correct, female biased nonsence, particularly if it is making you feel unhappy and you feel safe to do so.
Buy some of the recommended books, read them pass them on to a friend.
LOBBY, LOBBY, LOBBY - Write letters to MPs, Govenment Departments, newspapers etc. Consider placing adverts, or organising / taking part in small scale local targeted protests, likely to gain support e.g. boy's education, family courts. Invite influential people to a presentation or debate, let local media know and always prepare carefully.
Avoid spending your money on the products of companies whose adverts portray men and boys negatively or recruit and promote within their company using female shortlists or quotas.
Gillette (Procter & Gamble) . When in a shop just pull forward alternative razors so that they can be seen. I never push back Gillette ones I feel that is going too far, but just pulling alternative stock forward to be seen I have no problem with.
Lee Jeans (Same company as Wrangler)
There are many other companies and they should all be called out.
You can also report adverts on Facebook or Twitter or to the Advertising Standards Authority in your country, for the UK this is at https://www.asa.org.uk
There are companies that are starting to use male positive adverts such as Maxwell House and Egard Watches. Just keep your eyes open, act accordingly and spread the word.
If you would like to do more please consider funding those who are active on the issues men and boys face. There are a few suggestions below in the "Who To Fund" section.
Take your conscience to work
This can be difficult within a company, an organisation, civil service, government department, Police Force, Family Court etc. particularly where there are entrenched views and even harmful and damaging guidlines that you are required to implement. If you are not in a position to risk loosing your employment please nevertheless do your best to do what you can, certainly try to avoid carrying out actions that perpetuate a bad situation or make things worse, perhaps you could try a go slow or something. Foot soldiers can be as complicit as leaders in a bad regime but only you will know the limits of your own situation and your own strengths, it's not easy so simply do your best, you can't do more.
If you are involved in the news avoid sensationally demonising men and boys, try to be balanced. It is worth remembering that feminists are a small minority, most people are more open minded even if they share some of their views but increasing numbers of people are coming to the opinion that many feminist views are harmful. So if it is profit you seek, you might do better to focus on appealing to the majority and actually help improve society at the same time by being balanced or if you want to be sensational and provocative, by offering counterbalance or alternative view.
There is a great need for writers of novels, plays, musicals, films, music, poets, sculpture, dance and for creatives of all types to bring more balance or counterbalance to society and write more positive male roles. The arguments have been won but hearts and minds have not, just showing the evidence only wins over logical people. Feminism is a belief system, evidence will have little or no influence and people holding these beliefs effectively run our society and it's institutions so these people will either need to be replaced or converted to a new and fairer belief system. Seeing men cry does not tug at the heart strings the way that it does when women and children, it's the way we have evolved, so even though we need to try to encourage empathy for men it won't be easy. Disney Princesses are central characters but the Princes merely have a supporting role.
There is a natural empathy for women as a group, there is not for men, feminists have always pushed and continue to push at an open door, it will be a constant and difficult task to recognise this in action and call it out. People holding feminist beliefs sit on film boards and every important watchdog and committee, feminism is pandemic. If you are a regulator or censor, please be balanced and try to avoid judging everything by how favourably women and girls portrayed while ignoring men and boys who have precious few positive role models already. If you are a male actor why not just refuse to play a villain, fool, rapist, violent husband or mean spirited character for the umpteenth time until you are given the opportunity to play positive male characters. It is not helpful to perpetuate negative images of men just for entertainment.
