Law and Order SVU sympathetic to men's issues
The activism is working. In case I haven't mentioned it before things are getting better,not good it's still a shithole but we are making some progress out of the hole we have dug for ourselves. To give an example a couple of episodes of Law and Order SVU took a serious look at misandric rape and domestic violence. In one a male stripper is raped by three women at a bachorlette party,all the cops but Elliot Stabler are sympathetic to the male victim and another shows a corrupt female judge deliberately ruling against men in domestic violence and divorce cases. Again the man is portrayed as sympathetic.I thank Dick Wolf for taking a serious sympathetic look at men's issues. It shows great things can happen when we get activist. There is another danger,one we haven't faced before but it is very deadly to a movement and that is complacency. We can't afford to become complacent,not now. We've got the momentum on our side,don't let it stop.
