Thanks for your kind words, Dave, but it wasn’t anti-feminists that are pushing me to move on, at least not the kind you are thinking of. I can deal with those types in my comments section. It was dominance hierarchy dynamics and just generally entitled male immaturity coming from guys within my own circle of friends that has made this feel like not such a great place to spend time right now.

As you already know, I don’t think much of Ali’s take on this topic. I think she’s got an axe to grind and little actual substance to support that axe grinding. But at least you and I can disagree like adults, and that is definitely something that I value.
