Look no further than the debate last week in the House of Commons on International Men's day, where a mere handful of Labour and SNP MP's turned up, and I think four women.I've not come across this 'well they're just men' so we don't care attitude - perhaps its different where you are - it clearly needs tackling.
The danger with things like this and the complete lack of political interest in things like 93-95% of workplace deaths being men or the appalling rates of male suicide worldwide, is that the left of politics makes it clear that they are only interested in men who fit the correct mould: if you don't subscribe to the "correct" way of thinking as a man, then you are on your own.
This complacency is rapidly making men's rights a right wing issue, and that's extremely dangerous: men, especially young men are a fantastic power for good in the world, but they have the potential to do much damage. It's one thing for men to feel excluded an like they have no opportunities, it's another to feel they are then being blamed for it.
The Right wing will welcome them with open arms and feed them poison, and the results can be seen in the Proud Boys and the White supremacists, the Tommy Robinson supporters. They don't care a bit for their footsoldiers and will use them as cannon fodder, but they have a better story for the confused young men who feel that they are being attacked just for being male.
We need to have a better story for men, not just "you are acceptable if you support our cause" but a proper life giving story that tells young men who they are and gives them a challenge instead of overwhelming them with guilt for being male.
