Jack’s Guest Appearances
February 2, 2023
On the road to equality, how do we know we are moving along the correct path? Equality is about balance and equal opportunity for all. What if one party is not experiencing equality and they also were not being recognised? How do we go about listening to what's important to that party? How do we make things so that it is all inclusive and everyone has a voice? Come on this journey with Jack Kammer as he shares his part on the road toward equality.

Is Feminism Sexist?
March 6, 2022
Jack Kammer leads Male-Friendly Media and has two podcasts "Men Are Talking" and "Good Will Toward Men," He is not an anti-feminist, he’s a counter feminist and has been working with men’s side of the “gender issue” for a long time, from being a Correctional Officer at Baltimore City Detention Center to working on the National Fatherhood Initiative’s InsideOut Dad program for incarcerated fathers, and authoring two books. He stops by to share with the Clutching Our Pearls audience how feminism limits men. In this roller coaster of an episode, the co-hosts and guest argue, agree, and aggravate each other. We believe that both sides entered into this conversation in good faith, so here we go…
Jack on Achieving Equality for Men
March 5, 2022
On March 5, 2022 Women’s Studies professor Gayle Kimball held a Zoom session with some of the men she included in her new book A Global Dialogue on Masculinity. The session was titled “Men’s Solutions for Gender Equality.”
This is Jack's presentation in that session.

Hearing of the Maryland General Assembly Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee
January 26, 2022
On January 26, 2022 the Senate Judicial Proceedings Committee of the Maryland General Assembly held a hearing on a bill that would prohibit discussion of Parental Alienation (PA) in divorce custody cases and would “train” judges on a host of topics that are often highly presented ideologically. Thanks largely to the work of Professor Jennifer Harman demonstrating that the work of Joan Meier, the godmother of the bill, was bogus, the bill’s sponsor announced at the start of the hearing that the language banning evidence of PA was being struck from the bill. But that isn’t the end of it.
Musings of a Counter-Feminist:
Autopsy of a Shakedown
January 25, 2022
“Bob and Lalo sit down this week with Jack Kammer, a radio host, author, activist and advocate of men’s rights as a Counter-Feminist Social Worker. This 90-minute conversation covers so much ground, you will be left wanting more as we dissect the birth, transmutation and rise of modern feminism.
“You may have noticed the ‘Autopsy of a Shakedown’ in the title this week and please note that it was carefully chosen. The term ‘autopsy’ derives from the Ancient Greek αὐτοψία (autopsia), ‘to see for oneself’ and shakedown being defined as ‘a swindle or a piece of extortion’.”
Vitamin M (masculinity)
January 23, 2022
“Jack Kammer views himself as the ‘counter-feminist social worker.’ He has dedicated a significant portion of his life to this issue. He is a public speaker, social worker, podcast host, and ultimately a strong voice trying to address the undervaluation of masculinity (“vitamin M”) in our current culture. When he reached out to me, I immediately was intrigued. This was my first opportunity to have someone on the show who was kind of unapologetic about such a controversial topic. The show and the approach I take is meant to try and overcome the usual bickering, tit for tat, and anger-based division that arises when someone has strong views on a topic like this. It was meant to provide a better way to work through it. That was what it was meant to do, but would it?”
The Negative Stereotypes That Hold Back Men and Boys
January 16, 2022
“While white men hold the majority of power positions in the U.S. workforce, most white men do not. The result: resentment from the unfairness and pent up emotions from our culture's negative stereotype of men and boys expressing feelings. In this episode, Jack Kammer reveals what it's really like for most men to feel the pressure from gender stereotyping and what women can do in heterosexual relationships to share power.”
“Interview With Jack Kammer — Part 2”
December 21, 2021
“Jack has a knack for challenging the status quo as it relates to men’s issues and traditional/fundamentalist feminism...
“The conversation with Jack was so fruitful, it had to be split into two episodes. And both are chock full of great information and thought-provoking ideas.
“If you missed the first part of the interview, you may miss some very important content and context so definitely go back and check out Episode 7 of The Existential Man.”
“Confessions of a Counter-Feminist”
December 14, 2021
Today we’re going to take on a topic that some might consider a little bit daring. We’re going to have a talk with a guy named Jack Kammer, who calls himself “The Counter-Feminist Social Worker.” Jack’s an author and podcaster, among other things, and from the looks of it, he’s all about defending the rights of men and boys against various forms of discrimination. What? You might be saying about now – men being discriminated against in favor of women? It’s really the other way around, buddy. Nevertheless...
“Boys are Affected by Sexism Too”
December 2, 2021
Boys and girls who engage in the same exact behavior may be treated very differently. And yet, when we fail to acknowledge that fact, we contribute to the gaslighting of our boys. Because the truth is that males and females both experience advantages AND disadvantages related to their sex and gender. But while a lot of societal effort has been directed toward decreasing gender-related disadvantages that hold back females, little attention has been directed toward eliminating barriers commonly encountered by boys and men. “For the past 60 years, we’ve done a pretty good job of making sure that girls have a lot of fluidity in the choices that they can make and the options they can pursue. We don’t do that so much for boys.” In fact, Kammer says...
“Interview With Jack Kammer — Part 1”
November 23, 2021
Jack Kammer began his public journey working with and for men and fathers in 1983 when he started a public radio show called "In a Man's Shoes." He has published three books, has a master's degree in social work, created a social work consultancy called Working Well with Men whose focus was to provide 'tools and training for the Social Work profession to help men give and get all the love they can.' Jack has a knack for challenging the status quo as it relates to men's issues and traditional/fundamentalist feminism. The conversation with Jack was so fruitful, it had to be split into two episodes. And both are chock full of great information and thought provoking ideas.
“What Is a Counter-Feminist?”
November 1, 2021
Jack explains what a Counter-Feminist is and how sexism affects Men and Boys too. We discuss about how society defaults in blaming men for all women’s issues in life and how men have trouble in the work and home place and no one cares. I also share how I have raised my teenage daughters and mentor my minority supervisees. These are heated topics, but need to be talked about if we really want true equality in the world. Enjoy the show!!!

“Jack Kammer (Counter-Feminist)”
October 18, 2021
Jack Kammer has been studying men’s issues his whole life and is a self-avowed counter-feminist. He believes the difference between a counter-feminist and an anti-feminist is that an anti-feminist says “No” while a counter-feminist says, “Yes, and men and boys also have social problems based on their sex and need help too.”
October 1, 2021
Jack Kammer produced and hosted the radio show “In a Man’s Shoes” from 1983 to 1989. He went back to school in 2005 to get his Masters in social work because he saw that gender issues are connected to multiple serious social problems in the United States and in other developed nations.

“Men Have Their Needs, Too”
August 9, 2021
Why do men and women differ when it comes to expressing emotions? Unlike women, most men tend to hide emotions. They are conditioned to believe that expressing their feelings is out of character with the male identity. However, suppressing emotions and feelings can be incredibly toxic and detrimental to a man’s mental health... (more)
April 24, 2021
On todays episode I catch up with an interesting guy by the name of Jack Kammer. Jack launched a radio show in 1983 on male-female relationships and the gender issues of men and boys. It didn’t take him long to realize that along with relationship issues, serious social problems were connected to society’s lack of awareness of the gender issues of men and boys...
