Anti-feminist author Gavin McInnes argued recently on Fox News that men had it worse than women “by every metric” — including sexual assaults.
On a Saturday broadcast of The Greg Gutfeld Show, McInnes griped about the idea of including women in the draft for military service.
“They want equality for everything fun,” he said. “How about you’re equal in sanitation, how about you have to go down into the sewers and remove rats from blocked pipes? How about you go to war and die?”
“If we’re going to do that, we’ll have to talk to President Hitler,” McInnes opined. “Because if women were soldiers for the last hundred years, we would have lost World War II.”
Gutfeld remarked that “women want total equality and this is total equality.”
“By every metric, men have it worse off,” McInnes replied. “We’re more likely to get raped if you include prison, we’re more likely to be assaulted, we’re more likely to die, we’re more likely to commit suicide.”
“And you’re not as smart,” former White House National Security Council staffer Gillian Turner interrupted.
“If you want to come over to our side then get ready for some rough times,” McInnes quipped.
While it’s true that more men are raped in prison because the U.S. inmate population is overwhelmingly male, women are more likely to be sexually assaulted by both prison staff and other inmates than men.
A 2014 Bureau of Justice Statistics report found that “[b]etween 2009 and 2011, females represented about 7% of all state and federal prison inmates, but accounted for 22% of inmate-on-inmate victims and 33% of staff-on-inmate victims.”

CNBC anchors argue on air: ‘100,000 people died… all you did was try to help your friend the president’
CNBC anchor Andrew Ross Sorkin on Wednesday accused co-anchor Joe Kernen of providing political help to President Donald Trump instead of reporting factual news about the coronavirus pandemic.
Kernen appeared to get under Sorkin's skin by dismissing questions about the relatively quick market comeback as the rest of the economy suffers in the midst of the pandemic.
"Joe, you missed [the stock market] 100% on the way down and you missed 100,000 deaths," Sorkin said. "So we can have this debate back and forth and you can try and question the questions I'm asking."
"Hold on!" Sorkin shouted when Kernen tried to interrupt him.
CNN’s John King astonished Trump keeps tweeting things that would get anyone else ‘fired in a snap’
CNN's John King on Wednesday expressed shock that no one has been able to convince President Donald Trump to stop tweeting unfounded conspiracy theories about MSNBC host Joe Scarborough murdering a staffer 20 years ago.
During an interview with David Gergen, King said it was particularly jarring to see Trump, in the middle of a pandemic that has killed 100,000 Americans, to be tweeting things that "if I tweeted them, we would be fired in a snap."
Gergen then looked back at how past presidents have handled tragedies, and he said Trump pales in comparison to all of them.
"This should be a week of national mourning, to have 100,000 deaths, the number we'll reach in the next two or three days, and the country is saddened by that," he said. "Traditionally, presidents bring us together for occasions like this. They brought comfort, they met privately with the families of the victims and cheered people up... and here now, we have completely the opposite. It's very, very sad."
The View’s Meghan McCain calls for cops to be charged for ‘blatant murder’ of George Floyd
"The View" co-host Meghan McCain called for charges against the Minneapolis police officers over the fatal arrest of George Floyd.
The four officers lost their jobs over the death, which prompted widespread protests that were met with tear gas and other violent tactics from police.
"There was huge amounts of protesters that took to the streets last night, and I think people are sitting in their homes and seeing what is blatantly a murder of a man on camera, and George Floyd, I watched the entire video," McCain said. "I know we didn't want to show the entire thing, but it's very graphic. It's very violent."
