Jesse Powell, the mangina who said that it was all right for men to be imprisoned on false rape charges to protect women, is now saying he’s a MRA. He has not changed his views in any way, and he admits that. What he did was take a lot of tradcon bullshit that has nothing to do with MRAs and label it MRA. Here is an example:
In terms of my psychological development and how I see the world regarding gender relations I am definitely an MRA and always have been. If I was to try to establish a “beginning” of my MRA path or my MRA psychological orientation I would say the “beginning” was my initial effort to declare my love towards and establish a relationship with the woman I loved the most in high school in 12th grade at age 17. That was when I first established in my mind a romantic identity or romantic persona; a sense of self-worth and purpose based on my love for a woman. I had a very rudimentary sense of asserting myself for the purpose of claiming a moral purpose in relation to a woman. What was “MRA” about this first assertion of myself romantically was that it was based on a self-defined morally oriented self-concept where I was trying to associate the romantic feelings I felt with a moral idealistic purpose that would give my romantic feelings moral purpose and moral value. In other words I was setting up for myself a concept of myself as a man in service to a woman on my own terms for my own moral purpose.
The MRM is about things like fixing laws and public policy, not getting a girlfriend in high school (or later). Clearly, he has no interest in actual MRA issues like fighting the false rape industry. (It’s obvious he still supports the false rape industry.) No one can take the term, MRA, and apply it to any old thing like Jesse Powell did. Words have meaning.
