Good news: that's called "intersectional feminism". You might've heard of it from right wing weirdos with rantsonas a few years backSo, how do you think social justice-y types would broadly respond if someone were to start pushing on the fact that by most measures of criminal justice inequality men are are worse off than women, often by a larger margin than the racial one (the two notably "stack" - that is both apply meaning that specifically black men get screwed the worst by the system while white women [especially young and/or pretty ones] get handled with kid gloves). And that accordingly maybe we should be looking at how the system treats men, given they're a much larger cohort subject to similar or worse treatment in most cases? Give you a hint, from experience the result is a whole lot of arguing how any given criminal justice statistic split by race is absolute proof of prejudice, discrimination and oppression while that same statistic split by gender is either the fault of those men or masculinity as a whole.
I'm surprised that this idea is even under contention. It's the specific premise behind "Get Woke Go Broke"We're in a capitalist society. That's the ONLY metric in a capitalist society.
