Indian online magazine Maggcom — likely to generate business for themselves — has just launched a campaign based on gender equality for men that predictably has some people in an uproar. Examples of the graphics created to express the issues of the campaign are included here. The text on their site reads as follows,
"Why should men have to give up their seat if they see a lady standing? Why should he have to hold out a door for a lady passing by? Men don’t get free entry in clubs. Men unlike women don’t get periods (yes don’t be so ashamed of it girls, you do that!) and so men can’t work their way out of the problem saying they are PMSing. Men certainly do not get the sympathy votes. Why should men not cry? Why should men do the heavy lifting? Why not girls?”
Unsurprisingly, Twitter users have taken exception to the campaign. Search hashtag #dontmancriminate for examples of their ire. See further graphics from the "don't mancriminate" campaign and more examples of its Twitter protest here.
