Because it’s 2015 is a resource that explores men’s issues and gender equality from a 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).

Men’s Issues:

  1. Sexual Double Standards for Men? Player, Virgin, Creep, Objectifier
  2. Institutional Sexism Against Men in the Justice System
  3. Men’s Lives Matter Less? “Among the Dead Were Women and Children”
  4. Paternity Fraud as a Violation of Men’s Reproductive Rights?
  5. Title IX and Low Standards of Evidence for Campus Sexual Assault
  6. “Yes, Dear”: Henpecked Husbands and One-Sided Relationship Dynamics
  7. Spotlight on: Men’s Suicide Rates
  8. Defining, Demonstrating, and Understanding Male Disposability
  9. The Legal Paternal Surrender FAQ
  10. Methods for Downplaying or Side-Stepping Violence Against Men

Feminism and Social Justice:

  1. Horseshoe Theory: Social Justice Left on Men, Alt-Right on Jews and Blacks
  2. “Sexist! Racist! Homophobe!” Political Correctness and Illegitimate Speech

The name is a reference to Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s one-liner explaining the gender parity in his cabinet picks (“because it’s 2015”). Trudeau, a vocal feminist, was suggesting that cabinet gender parity shouldn’t be controversial in this day and age. I’m suggesting that talking about men’s issues shouldn’t be, either.
