A couple of weeks ago I wrote a piece called Not Every Man Is Anti-Woman. Someone tweeted me in response to that article and said, “No, but it seems every woman is anti-man.” This idea had crossed my mind, and I am sure that many men feel this way because of the man-hating culture which has been created and endorsed by liberal feminism. So I thought it would be a good idea to write an article from the opposite perspective.
Despite what liberal feminism would tell you, not every woman is anti-man, in fact most of us aren’t unless you have bought into the lie of liberal feminism. I would say that the one exception to this rule is women who have been used and abused by men, whether, physically, emotional, mentally, or some combination of the three. While this attitude is understandable, it is not excusable. It is not fair for women to paint all men with a broad brush, just as it is not fair for men to paint all women as “man-hating” feminists.
For the most part, women are not “anti-man” as culture would like you to believe. Sure, we may tease you and torment you, but no more than you do us.
Just as not every man is a dirtbag, not every woman is a “man-hating” feminist. In fact, I cannot think of one woman off the top of my head that I know personally who I would classify as a man hating feminists.
To the women who have been used and abused by men, whether mentally, physically, emotionally, or some combination of the three, you have to get past that. I know it’s easy to become bitter and paint all men with the same brush, but it is not fair, and bitterness will eat you alive. So learn from the past, but look to the future with hope.
Not only are most women not “anti-man,” but they are very supportive of the men in their lives, whether, husbands, fathers, brothers, or friends. We are proud to stand beside the men in our lives not only supporting them, but fighting the battle by their side.
“Behind every great man, there’s a great woman.” This phrase has its roots in feminism, but is really the opposite of feminism. She’s not standing beside him, undercutting him, she’s supporting him.
Most women I know, aren’t going to call you sexist or bite your head off when you open the door for them. We understand that you’re doing it out of courtesy, not because you don’t think we’re capable of doing it ourselves. Obviously, you understand that we are fully capable of opening a door by ourselves, we understand that you’re doing it out of courtesy and we appreciate it, we don’t get it very often whether because most guys just don’t do it, or they’ve been called sexist, one to many times so they just quit doing it.
The bottom line is the majority of each sex appreciates and respects the other. Ladies, most guys aren’t dirtbags (although it may seem like it). Men, despite what culture will tell you, most women don’t hate you, simply because you’re a man.
