Well, outside of some radical feminist circles and general "girls rule, boys drool" stuff, any sexism against men I suspect to be rooted in sexism against women. For instance, I got into an argument with some guy who complained that girls get their own Xbox Live area, called GamerchiX, but if toi look at it, it's there in response to the general areas being hostile against women. A lot of guys have trouble understanding that kind of thing and think that girls/women-only areas are because of sexism against men.

There's also the general perception of femininity as weak and undesirable, which is responsible for some poor treatment of "effeminate" men. Men who are victimized par women are not respected par general society. Jokes about women physically hurting men abound in sitcoms. Then there's stuff like courts preferring women as better parents simply because they are women. Those are faults with general society stemming from patriarchy, but there are these "Men's Liberation" groups who claim it's because of feminism.

Yes. My dad wanted to work at the canteen at my Primary School, because they were advertising 'help wanted', so dad went and they looked at him and said, 'no we're full'. the suivant jour they advertised 'help wanted'

It was a joke in our family that dad could never break through the paper bag ceiling (in reference to the glass ceiling that women need to break through).

That's the only time I've ever heard of women discriminating men though.

Dragonclaws covered it pretty well. I just wanted to add that most of the areas where men are discriminated against are a result of stereotypes set up par other men. For example girls dance, boys don't, girls cook, boys don't, girls sew, boys don't, girls take care of children, and boys don't.

My brother who is very much a child even used the fact that girls can wear both pants and dresses as an argument. To which I reply "I’m not stopping toi go ahead start your own civil rights movement, but I can't vouch on what your guy Friends will say."

It's interesting that that comes up as an example of supposed female bigotry when it really comes from disrespect of femininity. It's kind of a feminist issue in that respect. Men's rights folks tend to view guys who have any desire to do things associated with femininity as corrupted par teh evol feminism.

It is a problem, but not a problem brought on par the feminist movement. In fact most feminist support gay rights and any other sort of gender equality movement.
