Zurich now has a Male Affairs Officer
Well, a "men's centre" was established at a Canadian university recently, and now we have this! So I reckon I see the beginning of a pattern here.
All right, so does this count as "activism"? Well, I don't have time to twiddle with semantics, so I'll just say that it counts as progress. But I am naturally inclined to ask why it is happening -- especially now. And I think the answer is simple enough. It is happening because heat and pressure were brought to bear upon a power structure, and that structure yielded a bit. There is no other explanation possible, or necessary.
And this is where the distinction between "activism" and "agitation" begins to break down, and to look artificial. Really now, both are just ways of bringing heat and pressure to bear upon a power structure. Different tools with different applications, but they are both applied to the same job, and they both have a vital role to play.
Activism....agitation.....it's all one, and it's all good!
