This is my response to this NY Times editorial. Among the more extreme I’ve seen.
This is a ridiculous over-generalization. Extremely few men have been exposed, yet this article is about all men. Who says we are not confronting our nature? You mention years and years of such discussion. You live in Canada, which has an “explicitly female” foreign policy. Do male forces drive culture or not?
The ideologies of men are irrelevant? Then how is a discussion to occur?
Sex is every bit about power than pleasure? How do you know that? What about procreation, which is the reason we have a sex drive? Is there a role for that?
Please don’t ignore the aggressiveness of women. Women display aggression as do men. We are all human.
This piece is hatred by a man towards men. This is not the way to make progress. Calling men monsters is not a step forward. I am a man, but I am no monster, I can assure you. There are certainly women who are more monstrous than I. I for one do not want to see the end of sexual attraction. And just think about what you implying regarding homosexuality between males. It’s hate on hate and power versus power. Ugly to contemplate. Many gay men would object I think.
I do not accept that male mechanisms of desire (the erection?) are inherently brutal. This is wacko stuff.
