MEETING THE ENEMY A feminist comes to terms with the Men’s Rights movement | Cassie Jaye | TEDxMarin

By facing long-held assumptions, one woman reevaluates her own gender biases. Documentary Filmmaker, The Red Pill

Cassie Jaye founded Jaye Bird Productions in 2008, which has since produced a collection of documentary films that have been praised for being thought-provoking, entertaining and respectful in representing multiple competing views within each film. Jaye is known for tackling complex and often controversial subject matters. Her latest film is The Red Pill. Prior to “The Red Pill”, Jaye’s most notable films were the award winning feature documentaries “Daddy I Do” (which examined the Abstinence-Only Movement versus Comprehensive Sex Education) and “The Right to Love: An American Family” (which followed one family’s activism fighting for same-sex marriage rights in California). Both films showed that Jaye’s interview style is to allow people to share their views honestly, openly and candidly while allowing audiences to come to their own conclusions.

  1. This is what happens when a leftist is exposed to what the left really is, the biggest hate group in the world. Her being able to sit back and be objective is a difficult and rare quality in a person nowadays. It had to have been a liberating moment for her.

  2. The men's rights movement is a branch of men's movement. The MRM in particular consists of a variety of groups and individuals who focus on general social issues and specific government services which adversely impact, or in some cases structurally discriminate against, men and boys.

  3. As a man, you describe perfectly my feelings.
    Sometimes I feel like having to excuse myself for being a man… and I can't argue because I feel like being the ennemy, just for my gender.

  4. Mam see we have laws for women , animals , trees , nature but not for men
    Lets make law & rules for humans not for men neither for women
    We work in most dangerous places for our women called mother , sister , wife and daughter . we think before we become men we are sons , brothers , husbands , fathers of some women and these bonds make us run in world worst atmospheres as solders and make us work most dangerous man made sites like nuclear power plants to clean nuclear waste . we dont need much but a blink of love if ur failing in that also no one will save men and humanity thats for sure world doesn't look good without men neither women lets share love and lets compete in sharing love not hatred . we dont even have right to cry whole heartedly please help us and save us from ur hatred itself .

  5. We are all human. We are all in this together. Helping and lifting one another is critical.

    "Thee lift me and I'll lift thee, and we'll ascend together." -Quaker Proverb

  6. Cassie Jaye learned what feminists and other professional victims are really about: hate and destroy anyone who fails to conform or who dares to question your obviously correct and morally superior view. (Apparently, putting down opponents while virtue signaling is FUN, and stepping on your fellow man is the preferred route to "self-empowerment.")
