Warren Farrell Protest

There's been a lot of buzz surrounding the protests at Warren Farrell's recent talk about men's issues at the University of Toronto. As expected, rabid feminists and their sympathizers came out to protest. Here's a bunch of links discussing this.

Nice work getting all those articles in one place. If you read comments on the Varsity -- there seems to be a strong backlash with the protest. Now is the time to start MRA activities -- especially putting up posters.

Thanks for posting those first two links which prompted me to create this page.

Yes, let's ramp up the MRA activities, including the putting up of posters.

I arrived a bit early and was astonished to see the large and hostile crowd who blocked the doorways -- not allowing people in for Warren Farrell's talk. The hostility was disturbing. If police were not there there would likely have been violence against attendees. We were secretly taken to the back entrance where there were also protesters but enough police to control them. Those who think feminism is not a violent movement are misguided.

Just came across this blog. It s great to see guys speaking out about the unspoken men's issues. The tide is obviously changing judging by the anti-free speech, man-hating, special privilege power hungry feminists at U of T. This is a sign of desperation on their part because who should dare promote boys and men's education, health and wellbeing with facts not of the feminist approved kind. I hope the publicicty of this violence will spur other varsity mens groups to invite Warren Farrell to their campuses.
