Hey Stephen — this is an important conversation. Because you’re right — those kinds of knee-jerk reactions happen and if we don’t address them, we let people walk away feeling a little smug and wrongly so. When someone says “what about all them bitches” — I would say something to the effect that being an asshole isn’t gender specific and there are plenty of bitches out there. But “all them bitches” aren’t raping 600 men a day, they aren’t assaulting millions of men every year and they aren’t murdering almost 10 thousand husbands a year. There is a vast difference between being an asshole/bitch/jerk and raping/assaulting/murdering.
