Question by hopscotch: Does this article seem like an accurate depiction of men?
“men have been taught to relate to the world in terms of dominance and control, and they have been taught that violence is an acceptable method of maintaining control, resolving conflicts, and expressing anger.”
“Countless daily acts of violence create a climate of fear and powerlessness that limits women’s freedom of action and controls many of the movements of our lives.”
“The threat of male violence continues to keep us from stepping out from behind the traditional roles that we, as women, have been taught. Violence and the threat of violence keep us “in our place.”
Does any of that sound like a melodramatic and alarmist way to make men seem like savages?
Is daily life really that bad for women that they live in a state of constant fear?
Does the entire male gender need to be painted with one broad brush based on the minority of “bad” men?
Why would feminists spread these sorts of ideas about men?
Irrational and inflated fear-mongering against men is not specific to that site:
It’s a very common tool in the feminist toolbox.

No, but that does sound like something which will piss off a lot of men who aren’t like that and make them like that. Those “feminists” should have learned a little something called labeling theory.
