    Well of course you'd teach him to pee sitting down, that's all you know!

    You seem pretty sure of that.

    Things would be so much easier if we all just had cloacas.

    I agree with you that misandry is just as big a problem as misogyny
    however, while there is nothing wrong with a "nice guy". the problem is
    - lots of the guys who say they're "nice" really aren't
    - they assume that being nice was the reason they were rejected (truth is, they were rejected because the woman didn't think they were sexy)

    If you don't understand why Nazis hating Jews is not equivalent to Jews hating Nazis, I guess there's not much hope for you ever understanding anything.
    feminists have a tendency to make comments like this when they are unable to provide adequate explanations.
    however, if you'd like a tangible example, look no further than the military draft. men are expected to be self sacrificing and place the lives of women and children above their own.

As if being a "man" is something to be achieved or personified rather than a state which is merely determined by anatomy. On the other hand, he is praising women; which seems contradictory. Are his comments from a misogynist or misandrist point of view...or both? His intention was to belittle the men who posted in this thread, not women. In fact, he appears to be trying to win the favor of women.
    Actually, both were subtle expressions of misogyny.
    If you substitute "I love black people" for "I love women", you might see the nature of the problem.

    Men being taught to deny their emotional selves in order to fit into a tiny box are not being granted a privilege.
    You are not understanding the nature of privilege. No one said it confers unequivocal benefit on any group. It harms EVERYONE. What you are referring to is the cost of that privilege.
    Think about the monarchy, for example. They lead highly constrained lives, yet no one could seriously question their (unearned) privilege.

    Actually, this isn't true in most countries. If you are talking about those times and places where women have been PREVENTED* from entering the military, the reasoning is that a) women don't make good soldiers and b) women will distract men from their duties. Ie. Androcentric, misogynistic reasoning. It is patronising to lump "women and children" together in one category that is in need of protection. It infantilises women and disregards their agency, i.e. it is misogynistic. Women who do enter the armed forces are often subject to sexual assault and abuse in what is a grotesquely macho, chauvinistic culture, so it's hardly surprising if they don't join up in great numbers, to be subject to misogyny.

    *PREVENTED. Only those in power can make such decisions. If all the people making war were women and all the people being sent to die men, you might have a point. As it is, you're talking nonsense.

    If you do not beleive misandry is a problem, why do you care so much? So you can talk about misogyny? Wrong thread for that.

    I just need a woman who will bake muffins for me 24/7. I want to come back from my job at corporate asset management of investment portfolios and have MUFFINs damnit. And if she gives me cupcakes instead of muffins because they are "kind of like muffins" it's over. As long as she gives me muffins, I'll see that shes well-treated. I'll buy her a new vacuum cleaner every month.

    I know I can get muffins at the store or bake them myself, but what's the point of being in a relationship then?
    [Trump's] rhetoric is not an abuse of power. In the same way that it's also not against the law to do a backflip off of the roof of your house onto your concrete driveway. It's just mind-numbingly stupid and, to say the least, counterproductive. - Bush did 9-11


    This is not going to go the way you think....
