Well, I ride the bus and people are rude to women sometimes, it's messed up! Nothing wrong with correcting the sleazies who do say things like "you should smile."
But then the article gets into the mega-hate and they lose the point. It is better to be constructive.
One time some latino gentlemen called me a bitch and a faggot from their parked car while staring at me in a not entirely friendly way. Another time some african american gentlemen robbed me on the street in sf. I don't think "Latinos / African-Americans, you are the problem. If you don't intimidate people someone you know does!"
Group based hate is messed up. I understand the need to vent some frustration on the writers part, but that kind of talk is other side of the same coin.
Both the fact that women get yelled at, assaulted, and harassed in public, and the hateful, sexist tone of the article are offensive to me. All sexists are fucknuts and spiders ; ).
"What men need is a wake-up call: You're the problem." Nothing like blaming entire genders and sexualities for the reprehensible actions of some jerks. Hurray for hate speech!
