    Fortunately, I'm not presumptuous enough to judge all men by the butthurt idiots who write articles like that.
    Personally I know of too many "entitled simpletons"

    So why not take it up with them, instead of complaining online and making generalizations based on your experiences with individuals?

    But that's what the internet was invented for!

    I'm making generalization based on objective facts not personal experience.

    I can understand how it might be easier for you if this were true, but it's not.

    As an example of some of the things I'm chewing over currently...I hold no definitive answer (just saying) but I figure these examples may serve to promote other's thoughts.

    When I started as a team leader I was assigned a young female apprentice. This female was...well blessed (lacking PC terminology...[stuff it] she has massive norks), short and wore a fairly low cut top to work. I was asked to address this with her by my boss (female ENFJ about mid 50s) on the prompt of another team leaders comments. Now although I was advised to approach it from lines of looking professional and giving men less reason to objectify, fortunately we got on well enough that the conversation started with the comment "tuck them in love". We eventually figured (the apprentice and I) was that some of the older women actually objected perhaps out of jealousy but in the end, due in part to her height and the perspective of most people taller, it wasn't a bad idea just to keep other's quiet. I kinda now regret having said what I did and not fighting for her rights to show a good six inches of cleavage if she so chose. In fact a lot of my team at the time were women and they threatened to all wear low cut tops in protest.

    Recently I had another apprentice assigned. 17 years old and very much the barbie look (the one with the HD eyebrows). Now she's quite a warm and friendly, energetic (read PITA to an INTP) pretty girl. She spent the first few weeks getting to know everything about the leaving apprentice to learn his job. Seemingly they got on well and he quite obviously fancied her. Now she was appalled that after he left he sent her a message (whilst drunk) asking her if she'd be his "fuck buddy". Of course the office was in uproar (she's that loose lipped she told everyone). This same person is quite smitten with a couple of the guys at work and is quite graphic about her desires. Now her desires are encouraged where as his were denigrated. It got to the point where I weighed in peeved by the double standard. It's well known that the modern man is asked to speak from his heart, be honest about his motivations and treat women with respect. He did all of these things (admittedly more the former than the latter) and was lambasted for it.

    I'm not sure that in either circumstance I had the right approach but I'm also not sure what better I could have done.
    Isn't it time for a colourful metaphor?
