About a feminist post

     Take a look at this post by a feminist.  Now, the main thrust of her post is that she worries about masculinity.  But she says she’s not a man-hater.  Why “some of [her] best friends” are men.  Don’t believe she said that?  Check the link.

     Then, of course, she goes on with a false claim that women are more frequently the victim of violence.  The reality is that the statistics are only of instances that are reported and whose reports don’t go into the old “round file.”  Men are subject to violence at the hands of women just as much as women are at the hands of men.  It’s just that, as a society, we are trained to ignore it or (worse) to think “there must be a reason; he must have made her hit him.”
