@dyslexia,
The same way a woman would confront misogyny without seeming a misandrist, I guess.

Among other things -- specificity helps.

@dyslexia,
That's not misplaced dirty laundry is it?

Indeed.

Guess you need to aim at the error of making massive generalizations rather than the differences between the sexes.

@sozobe,
I don't hate men.

The great love of my life and I named his penis Walter Mitty, because he had dreams of greatness.

In theory I agree, but in practice I do not think that in modern (Western) society a guy can get away with as little effort as that. The perception thresholds are not the same, or even in the same ballpark.

@Robert Gentel,
if women ruled the world there would be no strife, war, poverty or dissatisfaction of any kind, if you're a man and disagree you're a male chauvinist pig.
and then there are the vast majority of women who have moved past all that and support "human rights."

Its hard to argue with someone then they think you are the enemy. A hardcore feminist may listen to another woman who disagrees, but never to a man =)

With the feminist catch cry of "equality', does anyone know who they want equality with ?
The latest libby movement fired up around WWI and I just dont get what they were complaining about...did they want to go to the trenches ?
They have been getting away with misandry ever since. I confront it head on with belligerance...it is surprising how quickly they stop attacking men if it backfires and instead of illiciting a "there, there...", it results in a logical attack on the damage done by the libbies, especially as far as womens rights are concerned. Like most revolutions, the libby movement has been in the hands of a few and they have not been the brightest.

@Ionus,
Equality is something quite... well, not anywhere as simple as people think. The sexes are different so even if you treat then equally, differences will still exist. If you "force" equality by treating then differently... well, whats the point then?

you concentrate on equality while not forgetting that men and women are different, and sometimes want different things. We should be aiming for a complimentary equality, not in trying to make men and woman the same.

In this day in age anyone who does not agree to let women be in charge when ever they want to be in charge is open the the charge of misogyny. right now the charge automatically comes with being willing to fight for mens rights, for equality. So long as I am clear in my head that equality and good health for all is my goal being called a misogynist does not bother me. I am disturbed my how scared a lot of men are of being so labeled however. This is part of a general theme, one where many men lack balls.

Its not just men and not just about women, everyone seens unnaturally afraid of being seen as racist or prejudicious. I think the drive for equality has gotten kinda out of hand, people have forgotten the pratical side of things.
