Men also gave their lives in great number so all of us could have freedom. Every time you blame men in general, you’re essentially saying we’re all liars who oppress and deny equal rights. There are bad men, and there are bad women. Just so you know, we were about 2 weeks away from losing the Second World War. According to the Nazi design, many of us would have ended up slaves. Over 58,000 American men gave their lives so that wouldn’t happen. It’s one thing to be bitter, Stee Tee, it’s another to be ungrateful. Please read Margaret McMillan’s “The War That Ended Peace,” and understand how easily hate can turn to war, and be prepared. If all of us (men) are such horrible human beings, maybe this next war can be fought without us (if you’re saying it will never happen, you need to read more history and know that it will). I agree that women and blacks have not been treated fairly, but you using colonialism and Catholicism to explain this away as if there were no other reasons, lacks a critical understanding of history. There is so much more to this than the typical information you’ve decided substantiates men being jerks and fools.

I did a poor imitation of Don Draper for 40 years before writing my first novel. I'm currently in the final stages of a children's book. Lucky me.
