MRA is short for Men's Rights Activist. MRAs argue that, as human beings, men should have human rights, due process in legal matters, and should not be subject to "reverse discrimination" in favor of other groups.

MRAs typically point to men's lower life expectancy in almost every country, higher rates of incarceration, more severe penalties for similar offenses, lower rates of health care spending and health research spending on men, higher suicide rates, higher rates of being subject to violence and murder including by women and when they are children, higher rates of genital mutilation, liability to conscription, higher rates of death at work, various disadvantages in divorce and child support, and higher school and college dropout rates, as reasons why men's rights should be on the agenda.

Feminists argue that we live in a patriarchal society, and therefore men have male privilege, which is invisible to them. As a result, any issues men have are insignificant and are only a result of the massive privileges men have. Thus no effort should be expended on men's issues until every women's problem is entirely resolved.
"MRAs argue that there should be a presumption of equal access to children after a divorce, on the basis that a presumption of residence with the mother is sexist and is often not in the child's best interests."

Mens rights activist:

Someone who believes that the honorable cause of providing rights for women has exceeded justice in several areas, with some laws now favoring women instead of being neutral.

They are often accused by women of being misogynistic.
MRAs do not approve of how women get lighter sentences in court than men.

Ultra-Feminists hate any MRA, and will do anything to destroy his credibility.

Acronym for Men's Rights Activist/Activism

MRAs stand up against such nonsense as:
The fact that dads are second only to suspected terrorists in how they are treated by law. Fathers can be held without trial, charge and counsel (direct violations of the constitution), government officials can enter their homes and raid bank accounts, and they can be constantly monitored using a electronic device attached to their bodies. Divorced fathers are stigmatized as deadbeats even though outlandish and outdated formula’s such as the flawed Child Support Guidelines which ignore a wide array of realities. Divorced fathers who can’t make payments are often called deadbeats when in fact most of them cannot make the payments simply because they are DEADBROKE.

Insane policies like the British Airlines one that does not allow men to sit next to children, effectively branding all men as potential sex predators. This is not something that violates rights and that we should fight against?

The fact that dozens of studies show that in relationships women can be just as violent as men( not in self defence). Yet we see very little in the way of shelters and support for the men who are battered, and punishment for the women doing the battering. Police are trained to arrest men even if is clearly them who were abused.
An MRA is a real man. They are the men that are no longer putting up with the baseless and unfounded cultural norm and values system that ranks them as bad, always wrong, and deserving of punishment. They are the men that are fighting back against the increasing hostility and contempt that is being heaped on men by pop culture, the law system, and almost everywhere else in society in general.

Despite accusations by the brainless, lightweight, unenlightened, reasonless, dungheaps such as those above (using embarrasingly lame, uncreative, and juvenile humour), MRAs do not have a hidden agenda to restore historical patriarchy and remove rights from women. In fact, MRAs are more egalitarian then modern gender feminism, which turns a blind eye to injustices happening to men, doesn't say anything about equl responsibility for equal rights, and have an extemely one-sided notion of "equality".

Men's Right Activists

A group dedicated to father's and men's rights in the interest of preserving the interests of men in a world shared equally with women. This includes the deconstruction of modern education by radical feminists.
MRA is the natural development for the protection of male interests in the American Divorce Culture and the decline of family and fatherhood.

1) An advocate for a man's right not to have his Constitutional Right to be presumed innocent taken away from him, just because his accuser might be thought of as a liar.

2) An advocate for a man's legal right not to be defamed, by either slander or libel, from persons of either sex.

3) An advocate for the prosecution of those that make false accusations of capital crimes, regardless of their gender.

4) An advocate for the prosecution of those resorting to vicious slurs, harassment and defamation; regardless of their gender.
MRA's are tired of false rape accusers getting off scot-free, especially in cases where they openly admit they lied to the police.
