Why can’t we hate men?

Article here. Excerpt:

'So, in this moment, here in the land of legislatively legitimated toxic masculinity, is it really so illogical to hate men? For all the power of #MeToo and #TimesUp and the women’s marches, only a relatively few men have been called to task, and I’ve yet to see a mass wave of prosecutions or even serious recognition of wrongdoing. On the contrary, cries of “witch hunt” and the plotted resurrection of celebrity offenders came quick on the heels of the outcry over endemic sexual harassment and violence. But we’re not supposed to hate them because . . . #NotAllMen. I love Michelle Obama as much as the next woman, but when they have gone low for all of human history, maybe it’s time for us to go all Thelma and Louise and Foxy Brown on their collective butts.

So men, if you really are #WithUs and would like us to not hate you for all the millennia of woe you have produced and benefited from, start with this: Lean out so we can actually just stand up without being beaten down. Pledge to vote for feminist women only. Don’t run for office. Don’t be in charge of anything. Step away from the power. We got this. And please know that your crocodile tears won’t be wiped away by us anymore. We have every right to hate you. You have done us wrong. #BecausePatriarchy. It is long past time to play hard for Team Feminism. And win.'

The WaPo has gone all-in for clickbait. Alas I am banned from commenting for unknown reasons, prob. dissent from the WP party line.

My reply: It's fine to hate men. Go ahead. But live with some integrity. Renounce things made by men or any assistance from men. Refuse to do business with men. (No more Amazon for you!) In fact, it's time for someone to go ahead and found Femina, the female-only country. Please, just do it.

There's over 1500 comments. I sifted through some of them and the backlash has been fierce -- and rightfully so. It's time men and women find out the truth about feminism. Hate articles like this are a perfect opportunity to wake people up.
