Yesterday, I ran into a group of people in which one person -- a man, of course -- was explaining the male point of view about their topic of conversation. First, no one cares, and second, being a man, he was completely wrong about everything. I interrupted to explain to him, in small bites so that he could understand, the reality of the male point of view. He responded with the extremely misogynist comment that he might possibly know his inner life better than I did. Yes, of course: Being a man, he was automatically right, and how dare a womon, especially a lesbian, ever question his infallibility.
