A new survey conducted by YouGov and The Economist teases out something that we have long suspected. Trump voters say that men are discriminated against more than gays, women, and ethnic minorities.
According to the result, the percentage of Trump voters who believe that the following groups face “a great deal” or “a fair amount” of discrimination in America today are:
- Men — 49%
- Hispanics — 42%
- LGBQT — 41%
- Blacks — 38%
- Women — 30%
How did so many people convince themselves that men are victims of discrimination? It is almost enough to make you feel sorry for men. Well, maybe not.
Among people who voted for Hillary Clinton, only 11% said that men face discrimination in the US.
Meanwhile, the Trump administration is trying to redefine gender to mean the biological gender you were assigned at birth (listed on your birth certificate). In the US, there are around 1.4 million people who recognize themselves as a gender other than the one on their birth certificate.
