Sexual/domestic violence and men

In my last post, I quoted Warren Buffett: "Fellow males, get onboard." Well, this guy has the same attitude. I like it.

But don't go to YouTube and read the comments, not unless you want to lose all faith in humanity. Yeah, the 'men's rights activists' are voting this one down. They're angry, very angry, that anyone - especially a man - dares argue against violence directed against women (and against children, and against other men, too).

It's hard to imagine, isn't it? What is there in this video that could bring out such vitriol? But as I said before, these are men unhappy with competition. They either can't compete or they think they can't compete, so they're unhappy with losing the automatic status being a man used to confer.

Now they actually have to amount to something. Scary, isn't it?

Well, they're a minority of men. They're an angry, vocal minority, but they're still a minority. Jackson Katz here is more representative of our future - at least, if we don't let the haters have their way.
