See...I kinda disagree. I think, as a whole, men are oppressive to women. Our society is paternalistic and women are still second-class in uncountable ways. Individual men can be both good and bad (just as women can be). I happen to adore the men I own, and also many of the ones I call friends and family, but, other than those few select individuals, I don't have a whole lot of love for the societal group known as "men".
I think that's always been the age-old problem. Men in total are against us, but our individual men aren't necessarily against us.
