No. Just as most men don't hate women, we might hold a grudge against a specific woman or type of woman perhaps due to previous experiences, but in general most normal rational people are not filled with hate much less for 50 percent of humanity, a 50 percent of humanity with whom we have to interact daily and from whom we also descend and have relationships of various types. It's time some people come to the realization that all people regardless of gender, or any other human categorization, have the capacity to be good and terrible, sometimes at the same time, using the Red Army rapes as an example i'm sure many soviets did not rape and were civil towards their dominated subjects in the same way not all German men or women were heinous, some were civil towards their subjects a few years before.

A quote sprang to mind when I read your post but I can't remember were it came from.

' Good people do good things and bad people do bad things. It takes religion or ideology to make good people do bad things'

Seems to sum a lot up to me!

What's that other old saying?

We all know that women are crazy and men are stupid...but women are only crazy because men are stupid.

Just kidding; I actually think men are pretty smart and sometimes all women are slightly crazy. That's from personal experience.

I enjoy the company of my husband: he shows me how to do stuff like fix things and use tools. He is very strong; his presence make me feel secure. He chops firewood! I can attest also that men can cook very well when they want to. Men open tight jars, carry the heavy camping gear boxes and coolers, and they can actually throw a straight spiral pass (I'm hopeless). Some brew beer and make jerky from elk and deer that they hunt, and mine gives a wicked killer backrub. Among other motives, men do things for us women out of the goodness of their hearts because they adore us, and because they like showing off. I thank God for them. I'm so glad I'm not a man-hating 3rd wave feminist - they are missing out!!

Men are awesome.

I used to be afraid of men because of my mother's poor choice in husbands so avoided them. The first man I ever dated, the end of my sophomore year of college, is the one I married over 50 years ago and still love to spend time with. We even lived happily for nearly 13 years in an RV. I'm happy I didn't turn into a man-hating feminist, too, because I would have hated missing out on half a century with my favorite man.

No. It's always a select group of idiots who spew hateful and vitriolic comments without a shred of intelligence behind them. You shouldn't ever take them as representative of society.

Interesting quote i'll have to look it up, and that does seem in my experience to be the case in life.
