This is, admittedly, a bit old, from 2004, and in relation to something many anti-feminists have previously encountered, the infamous “Boys are stupid, throw rocks at them” T-shirts. But nonetheless it is interesting to see an organization (particularly one in Canada, which I’ve heard is even more socialist and feminized that the UK) manage to realise that expressing hatred for male children is not very nice, whilst the majority of society just continues to see the hatred males of any age as being really cool and funky.
“Boys are constantly receiving the message that they are not worth as much as girls and that it is ok for girls to make such statements that violate boys’ human rights.”
“We called up the manufacturer of the offending clothes. Their Vice President of International Sales, Cindy Lou, stated to us that the clothing was aimed at the 16-28 year old market. When confronted with the question “Would you sell a shirt with “BLACKS ARE STUPID, THROW ROCKS AT THEM”, she refused to answer.”
Check out this too; again, it is old news, I admit, but still reasonably satisfying.
