The one constant in my journey is change. There’s always change. Even when I think something is certain, it’s going to change. A case in point is when I decided a few months ago to move away from things that inspired me to be angry. At the time, I felt focusing on these things was bad, and that being angry was bad too. The ‘darkness’, I called it. So I started avoiding it. It was…. peaceful. For a week or two. But something felt off.
Since then I’ve had conversations with various friends about this topic, and I came to appreciate that there needs to be both dark and light within us, the good and the bad. It’s the yin and yang of balance. Being ‘only good’ or ‘only bad’ are very unbalanced positions, and such extremes result in things happening in our life to bring us back to balance. The more we struggle against balance by trying to be only good or only bad, the more drama we’ll experience as a result.
Achieving that balance is what the Masters strive for all their life. The rest of us, we just try to have less drama. It’s not always possible, but that’s because we don’t understand how balance works in our life.
So I’ve decided to re-embrace the ‘darkness’. The biggest reason for this is The fire that burns inside. I can’t get away from it!
What makes the fire burn inside of me is the desire to correct the social injustice I see in the world, visible in the actions of many feminists, their sympathisers, the media and the authorities. My burning fire is the belief that all human beings are equal, coupled with the frustrated observation that modern feminism seems to be doing its absolute best to destroy the concept of equality.
I can’t stop seeing issues of social injustice and inequality in the news, on the internet, in the social media. No matter where I go or what I do, they rudely thrust themselves into my awareness, taunting me with their spite. They make me angry that so much injustice against men is regarded as normal and acceptable, simply because it’s men who are victims of it. If it was women who were subject to the same issues that men today are subject to, there’d be riots in the street about it.
A friend commented in a discussion on Facebook today about my particular stance on equality when I share things on Facebook or engage in discussions:
…you highlight issues of injustice against men where it is a direct contradiction of equality if the sexes were reversed.
It’s these injustices and unequal attitudes and expectations in our society that I have a problem with, and which I must speak out about.
I support equal rights for all people, I always have. Feminists don’t support equal rights for all people, they only support equal rights for white women. And as a result of their biased influence, men are excluded from many of the ‘equal rights’ that women have.
More men need to stand up and say this isn’t good enough, and add their voice to the struggle for true equality in our society. Not just for white women, but for all people.
I have a dream that our children will one day live in a nation where they are not judged by their gender, but by the content of their character (with thanks to Martin Luther King Jr.)
