keep in mind many men don’t really like women, they like the high regard afforded them by other men when seen with a certain kind of woman. they like the confirmations of their masculinity and sexual prowess when engaging physically with a woman, and they like the ego boost of being attractive to many women. but they do. not. like. women.
Reblogging because when I see these kinds of semi-aggressive “damn them all” posts, this is the kind of ish that makes people get that “bra burning femi-nazi” picture of feminism in their head. And the way it is phrased just really rubs me the wrong way.
What defines many men? 100? 1,000? 1 million? The men in my life aren’t like this. And if they are… they aren’t in my life anymore. I could ALSO accurately say many men really do like women. 100… 1,000… 1,000,000. For every man that doesn’t “really like women: I could find you one who did. Maybe he grew up around a man that doesn’t like women, and maybe he has had macho moments where you can make a snap judgement about whether or not he “likes women”. But at then end of the day, if you really know the man and the way he loves his woman, his mother, his sister, his aunts, his cousins… you see that he genuinely LIKES women. I hate this “guilty until you’ve proven yourself innocent” kind of social issue stuff that crops up on Tumblr.
tl;dr: “Many men” is a poor way of phrasing what is otherwise a really good point about the unacceptable behaviors of SOME men.
