Default Suprised there is no thread for mens issues?

In a forum that addresses many social issues I am surprised that there is no major thread dedicated to mens issues .

such as the abuse suffered by men who have had their children taken away from them by their x wives. Such as men suffering domestic abuse, such as men who have issues they want to discuss , etc etc the list goes on .

You are quite welcome to start one. Please keep in mind 'degrees' of suffering will be watched closely.

Or you could start a thread that you intimated was needed and not troll.

I started the resource thread 'All things Sexist' some years ago. You are free to post issues or articles into that thread that you think are relevant to sexist issues. Your sources will need to be credible and they will be checked. You will of course be required to fulfill your burden of proof obligation and follow all other forum rules. There is a spillover thread where discussion arising from posts in the resource thread will be moved to. A link will be provided if posts are moved.

Alternatively, start your own threads about what ever particular men's issues you'd like to discuss.

Neither of these are "men's issues", they are "issues experienced by men" given that they are not issues exclusive to the male gender.

Um. I have had both of these things happen, but still don't feel the need for single thread (let alone a dedicated one)...
