"All men are potential monsters to be constantly feared"

Article here. Excerpt:

'First, a mounting pile of sexual harassment allegations made Sunday the worst International Men’s Day ever, and then on Monday, Farhad Manjoo of the New York Times had this hot take on men to offer:

"I am at the point where i seriously, sincerely wonder how all women don't regard all men as monsters to be constantly feared. the real world turns out to be a legit horror movie that I inhabited and knew nothing about."

That tweet eventually racked up more than 25,000 “likes,” but the highest-profile endorsement likely came from Washington Post style writer Monica Hesse, who seconded the idea that all men are to be treated as potential monsters.

"Surprise! The answer is that we do, and we must, regard all men as potential monsters to be feared. That's why we cross to the other side of the street at night, and why we sometimes obey when men say "Smile, honey!" We are always aware the alternative could be death."

Obviously, it’s a problem if gender relations have gotten so bad that men are treated by default as monsters to be feared; if women suggest that due process isn’t necessary and it’s OK if a few innocent men are ruined by false sexual harassment claims; and that complimenting a woman on her appearance is tantamount to sexual harassment.'
