Because it’s 2015 is a resource that explores men’s issues and gender equality from an egalitarian but non-feminist perspective. The central piece is the Non-Feminist FAQ, which goes into detail explaining why so many people reject feminism. Other pages document and demonstrate men’s issues, or provide additional criticisms of various aspects of feminism (and the broader “social justice” movement).

Where does the name “Because it’s 2015” come from? It’s a tongue-in-cheek reference to a one-liner from Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, a vocal feminist.
Is this a “men’s rights” blog? I don’t use that term personally. Most issues facing men aren’t actually about legal rights, so I think it’s a little misleading.
Is this an anti-feminist blog? I prefer “non-feminist”. My hope is to challenge feminism and establish the legitimacy of alternatives to it, not to eradicate/eliminate it.
Why talk about feminism at all? Why not just talk about men’s issues? Certain aspects of feminism are themselves issues for men. Given feminism’s dominance in the modern discourse on gender issues, this is really hard to ignore.
