An Observation

It is truly remarkable the number of fellows who misconstrue "represent women's interests" as "substitute my own interests for women's interests," and the number of fellows who misconstrue "be an ally to women" as "engage in misogyny to score political points against misogynists on the other side of the aisle."

It is also remarkable what a large intersection there are between the two groups.

It is further remarkable that none of these fellows seem to be aware that there are fellows who actually for realz respect women's agency and regard women as their equals, and that some of them aren't even pretending just to get into ladies' knickers!

Once again, I am unsurprised to find that it is misogynists who also take the dimmest view of men.
