ABC’s “20/20” has a special this Friday titled, “Women Battle Online Hate From the ‘Manosphere’”
Stomach turning at best, watch Paul Elam, from A Voice for Men, state the obvious and miss the subtext:
“There has been a change in the world, especially in the last 50 years. Women’s roles have changed drastically,” he told “20/20.” “What a lot of us in this area find is that men’s roles have not changed very much. Many find now that they have to react.”
And then traipse quickly into ignorance:
“Marriage has become unsafe ground for men, because we have corrupt family courts that practice bias against men and fathers routinely,” he told 20/20. “And men are waking up to this, that they don’t get a fair deal.”
