Why are people who point out injustices against men considered to be vindictive toward feminists instead of consistent against injustice?

    Vindictive behavior is the reason why people are considered to be vindictive.

    Pointing out injustices has nothing to do with that. You sound like you're trying to deflect criticism by pretending the criticism is about something unrelated and irrelevant. Don't be disingenuous.

    Lawyers argue the point. Paid by people with a personal bias.

    Think of it this way: There are lots of feminists who claim that men don't (as a gender) face injustice. Therefore, people who are fighting these injustices tend to go after the people who (from their point of view) are covering the injustice up.

    It is a valid way to proceed, though it is NOT valid to say that the injustices being hidden by feminists are always routinely instigated by feminists.

      "Some of them could use some better answers" needs to become the tagline for Yahoo Answers generally. Can you send me some pointers?

    Couple of things going on there.

    1. Often the people doing that kind of "considering" are... how shall I put this... not the *nice* feminists. Not the people who are trying to legitimately seek fixes for real problems, or genuinely help the world become a better place. Instead, they're the ones who are so wrapped up in their own little soap boxes that they are almost incapable of seeing anything outside of their own little ideological bubble, or the ones who legitimately hate (or, at least, dislike or harbor ill feelings towards) men, or the like. Sometimes feminists like that are the *loudest* ones, but that doesn't necessarily mean they're anything even remotely close to a majority of feminists.

    2. Some times, those people...do not act like people who are "consistent against injustice", but more like people who are, eg, trying to score points against the feminists. Like, if a feminist brings up some way that women are treated badly, their first response is to try to derail the conversation onto some (maybe related, maybe unrelated) way that men are doing badly. That kind of thing happens the other way, too (ie feminists derailing a legitimate discussion of men's issues to bring up women's issues instead), but anyone who's doing it in either direction is not acting like they are "consistent against injustice".

    And probably more reasons I could think of if I wasn't up about 6 hours past my bedtime.

    Because far too frequently these same people ignore and/or deny the injustices against women.

    Some people have black and white mindsets and can't grasp the gray area of nuance that exists in this world. Clearly zealotry of any kind isn't helpful.

    What we are seeing is the manifestation of the feminist "victim hood." In truth those who point out all and any injustice towards men *are* calling out a constant injustice; feminists believe injustice is to be theirs and theirs; alone.

    "Why are people who point out injustices against men considered to be vindictive toward feminists instead of consistent against injustice?"

    The current incarnation of feminists have cultivated a Western women's culture of victim-hood at the base of their ideological narrative. And any encroachment on this narrative by men is viewed as a threat to their perception of any victim-hood pay-off by government laws and benefits, as well as by a sympathetic society at large.

    Feminists view their victim-hood as a coveted golden goose, while viewing the accrued benefits as a zero sum game. So even a grave need of resources for any men's issue will be overridden by feminist derision and shaming of the actual victims. This is the way feminists have shown themselves to operate with regards to men's legitimate issues.
