Fair warning to anyone watching this film: There is a video of circumcision toward the end. It's only a couple second but it's graphic.
In short, this documentarian fails to do her due diligence and as a consequence this tilts to one side, falls off the hinge, and plummets down a rabbit hole of bad information and fantastic stories.
It is now men's time to rise above being painted with the brush of being bread-winners, sacrificial soldiers, less capable nurturers and parents, and expected to bear all burdens endlessly while keeping a "stiff upper lip." We women need to let them have their time, too!
I once knew a young man who had a social/developmental disability. He was a sweet, kind and honest soul, but he had never experienced anyone showing romantic interest in him. Suddenly, a girl appeared in his life and he was head over heels and thrilled that she seemed to love him. Before long, she became pregnant. Then, just as quickly as she came, she was gone-back to her lesbian relationship. The two women were overjoyed they would be having a child and immediately took him to court for child support after the baby was born. He was devastated: emotionally, financially and psychologically. There was not a single law to help him-is this not abuse? He went back to living with his aged mother and working his entry level job; faithfully making his payments and hoping he would occasionally be allowed to see his child.
The answer to our problems will come when men, women, races, age groups, religions and cultures become cooperative in elevating all people. Forget trying to "make up" for wrongs of past generations by supporting laws which oppress the people of the present. This is a wonderful film. Thank you, Cassie Jaye. You're the kind of person who looks at an issue with your whole soul, and without fear of finding truth-even if it changes you. The world would be so much better if we all did this; this is the world I hope will exist for my sons and my daughter.

Men's Rights focuses on specific issues, such as bias in family courts regarding child custody and paternity, domestic violence where often men take the sole blame, boy's declining performance in education, elevated male suicide rates. Men's problems are taken less seriously. Feminist ideology promotes the idea that we live in a patriarchy, where men are a privileged group, women are oppressed and men are the oppressors. In general, the concept of patriarchy is not disputed by MRAs. However, they would say that patriarchy developed from the allocation of gender roles and not vice versa. It was not a deliberate attempt by men to control women. Nonetheless, it is evident that the upper strata of society is still male dominated. Men still lead in business and politics. The greatest social changes have taken place in the middle and lower rungs. But it's difficult to argue that men are a privileged group when they make up only 38% of all university graduates.
I had to watch it two or three times.There is so much material and there was a difficulty in grasping opinions that seemed to be at odds with our basic assumptions. Cassie Jaye has given us much to consider.
In the fall of 2016, once The Red Pill movie itself was released for its initial viewings, some leading entertainment newspapers and reviewers published articles which misrepresented the movie and the film-maker. Based on these false reviews, people who hadn't seen the film protested it and shut down some screenings by threatening venues where the film had been scheduled to be shown. These protesters falsely claimed that the film promoted rape culture and would harm women!. Despite the bad press and protests, the film and the film-makers won numerous awards at several film festivals.
In March of 2017 The Red Pill movie became available for public purchase and, amazingly, its sales soared. It became a best-selling documentary, it was very highly rated by the vast majority of its purchasers, and Amazon.com labelled it "Amazon's Choice". Clearly the movie struck a nerve.
Based on interviews, as well as independent research which the director, Cassie Jaye, cites in the movie, The Red Pill presents a number of issues which uniquely, or overwhelmingly, affect boys and men. While some men had tried to bring these issues to public attention in the past, they had been largely ignored, dismissed or silenced. Given the climate of gender politics these days, perhaps this is a movie that only a woman (and a feminist at that) could have made.
I believe that The Red Pill movie has created an opening for a long-needed dialogue. It is thought-provoking, and is a movie that everyone should see.
I really hope Cassie and others like her create more products like this... A MUST WATCH!!!
Technically the documentary follows a good narrative. I would have liked to see more feminist-side interviews since they are so easily refuted.
Fair minded people will find the film fascinating, even a little heartbreaking, at times. Films like this, offer us hope that true equality between the sexes can be achieved, one day. Only never at the hands of Feminism and their evil, sexist goals.
