Over the past week some controversial posters have been popping up on Saskatoon streets.

The posters, which are connected with a group called 'A Voice for Men,' carry slogans such as "Feminism Equals Male Disposability" and "Men's Rights are Human Rights."

They go on to compare men's rights to that of minority groups such as "African Americans, Jews and gay and lesbian people."

One message on a poster states Canada is the most dangerous place to be, if you're male.

Russell Delorme, in Saskatoon, said there is no need for this sort of campaign.

"We've got it really good here in Canada," said Delorme. "Compared to some of the other places I know of and people that I have talked to, we've got it made, made in the shade, so to speak."

Ambrosia Varaschin from Saskatoon finds the tone of the posters too angry.

"It has a point, and I do think they do have a valid message, but I think they are going the wrong way in getting that message out," said Varaschin. "Probably stirring up more anger then they are awareness."

A Voice For Men did not respond to CBC's request for an interview Friday.

On its website, the group's mission statement says it's "sole ideology is compassion for men and boys that is equal to that of women and any other identified group."
