There certainly are good reasons for women to hate men, but that doesn’t mean that they do (at least most women don’t). Even if men aren’t all doing the truly terrible things, they’ve been either turning a blind eye or continuing to support a societal structure that allows these outrages to go mostly unchecked. I know a lot of women and a lot of feminists, and none of them talk about how much they hate men. They talk about disappointment, about feeling hurt, about feeling frustrated — they don’t talk about hate. One article by one woman (or even a few women) does not make for a body of evidence.

I went to the first Women’s March. It was made up of about 30% men, and although there was some anger expressed, the general mood was of coming together to try to create a safer, healthier world where women didn’t have to live in fear so much of the time.

Even now, only a small percentage of rapes are even reported because even that most outrageous of crimes is typically held against them and they then get victimized twice.

I always care about the scientifc criteria used to determine the studies that I refer to. Unlike you, I am inifinitely more interested in truth than in showing that I am right.
