I have encountered this attitude one too many times. I have run into one too many women who will happily list all the many virtues of women and all of the negative attributes of men, and yet they seem to live under the delusion that this counts as "feminism." They seem to think they need to do this in order to stand up for themselves. This is bogus. No, you don't get to call yourself a "feminist" if you bash on men and all things masculine. This just means that you are recreating the evil that feminism was put there in order to abolish. I have a right to defend my own sex and its worth in society, and I also have a right to fend off broad, sweeping generalizations against it. I am not obligated to be even-handed when the person I'm dealing with is bent on attack. And no, you do not have a higher pain threshold. Men do. Buyers beware: the last person who got my dander up over this subject ended up showing her desperation by making lame attacks targeted at my physical appearance. I think she was hoping to get me to come off as some kind of narcissist or something and then upbraid me for that. You know who you are, prey. Come hither. We could have SO MUCH FUN.
