I am so sorry for the abuse you have suffered online from so called “men.” I only ask you to remember that the population of persons online who care about and will take the time to respond to something published there is not at all representative of that population as a whole. Do not dismiss and stereotype all men based on your experiences with them on the Internet. The vast majority of men are good people. They respect, like, admire, and love all women. We view them as equals in every way and in fact think of them as superior in many. We are appalled at how some of us treat you and would never act like that ourselves. We are not ignorant and recognize that you have been treated poorly historically. That you have suffered discrimination and outright abuse. Knowing this we have resolved to try as hard as we can to rectify those injustices. Most men do actually think like this. They do truly believe it.
