Quick thought

Why is it when a feminist, womanist, or gender equality advocate criticizes an aspect of our culture in North America, there is suddenly a swarm of self-righteous assholes who get all pissed off because they insist we are insulting men? Arrogant much? Especially when the closest anyone came to mentioning men is pointing out that males don't get the same social sanctions as females for the same behavior. I mean seriously, how fucking full of yourself do you have to be to think that a discussion of how girls are persecuted by their peers and society at large for their sexual behaviors while boys' sexual behaviors are largely ignored or encouraged is even about you in the first place? Privilege check, aisle 3!
