People get angry

I know I’ve been writing about equality from a position that is anti-feminist, because I see feminism as being about things other than equality. But there’s something I haven’t written about because it just hasn’t been an area I’ve focused on, and that’s the extent of misogyny (hatred of women by men) that still exists in our society.

Social change and discrimination against men

Last year, while I was working in Sydney, I met and befriended a fellow patron of a nearby restaurant and had dinner with him almost every night for about 6 weeks. We became very close in that time, and I was happy that he accepted an invitation to join me at my wedding a short time later. But I digress. At around that time I was going through some internal confusion about what I was doing with my writing, and the things I cared about. I was frustrated that no one else seemed to care. He told me, "No one knows which snowflake causes the avalanche."

The Emperor has no clothes

There’s a level of insanity in this world that’s becoming more and more prominent, and very few people speak up about it because they don’t want others thinking that they’re against ‘progress’, or that they’re old-fashioned, sexist, racist, discriminatory or just plain insensitive. So they stay quiet, despite the evidence before them that more and more people are going insane.
