Men: An Endangered Species?
Friends, at the risk of causing a few of you to blow your tops, you might wish to read this article, remarkable for its sheer outrageousness. It argues that women are justified in despising men, and men better straighten up and fly right soon if they know what's good for them! They should also prostrate themselves before the rising tide of feminism and give up all positions of power. (Side note: all good progressives believe that gender is a social construct, not a fixed biological reality, but for some reason it still makes sense to denigrate "men"). Would such an article be published by the Washington Post if it were ruminating about the flaws and obnoxiousness of women, or gays, or black people? Silly question. Only the lowest of the low -- men, for instance -- get that kind of treatment... Make no mistake: this is bigotry, dressed up as social commentary.
Also, you might want to read this article, which concerns CNN's Jim Acosta and his latest deviation from professionalism. If we are EVER to get serious about holding the media to a higher standard, surely this man needs to lose his credentials, no?
