Men hate you

Q: But seriously, I’m a man and I don’t hate women, so what’s with this “Men Hate You” section?

A: All men exercise — and benefit from — male privilege, whether they want to or not. The exercise of male privilege is misogyny. The spinster aunt understands that there exist men who don’t actively choose this, but the involuntary nature of their participation in women’s oppression doesn’t make women any less oppressed by them.

SALIENT POINT: Women experience the exercise of male privilege as misogyny.

Sure, it isn’t fair, but if it bums you out, how do you think it makes us feel?
