Five Reasons to Be a Feminist Man….and the backlash

It is astounding how much vitriol is generated when men publicly support feminism. A blog post at http://www.bluethenation.com/2013/06/15/five-reasons-to-be-a-feminist-man/ made a rational argument that generated not only a lot of comments on the blog itself, but responses in other blog posts from very angry men such as this one: http://evilweasel.net/?p=641.

Such reaction only supports the dire need for rational dialogue, but it also seems to suggest that there are men that are very scared and angry and see women as the cause of their misery. That is a frightening prospect.
