On denial


Men who refuse to acknowledge that they are part of the oppressor class and insist on being treated like special snowflakes who don’t oppress anyone because they think they’re good guys who haven’t personally raped or beaten a woman, are a big part of the problem.  Their head-in-the-sand refusal to acknowledge their own passive role in perpetuating injustice only leads to more injustice.  Their friends and colleagues rape and batter women, while these “good” men do nothing.  And they pat themselves on the back for it.

Most men do not care what happens to women.
