1. A woman’s death is a tragedy; a man’s death is a happening.

“We’re replaceable. We’re easily discarded. That’s the military view at least, but this mentality spreads throughout. A woman’s death is a tragedy; a man’s death is a happening.”

2. In war, we are the pawns.

“War. We are the pawns. I remember when I had to register with the selective service (mandatory). Thankfully, large scale conflicts are becoming more of a thing of the past, and at least in the US, the draft is not something anymore. But it sorta hit me when I filled out my paperwork that if there ever was some massive conflict again, and they had to call people up, myself, all my childhood male friends, all males in my community etc… would find ourselves in fatigues, buzz cuts and shipping off to god knows where leaving behind moms, sisters, wives and female friends.”

3. Men have no choice when it comes to ‘pro-choice.’

“I’ll probably get killed for this, but anyway, I’m very pro-choice. Women, your body, your decision, zero issue with that. However, I think males should have a choice in whether or not we’re financially on the hook supporting an unwanted child. I’d probably step up anyway, cause I have a conscience, but what’s with the obligation? Athletes/actors/celebs are targets for groupies trying to get a payday.”
