Okay... So as an academic that runs the risk of being black balled did you really think that I would post under my real name? Additionally, you will have to excuse my grammaticcal and spelling errors as I struggle to post with the predictive texting on my smart phone.

I must admit that I could care less who made that long post. What I find interesting is that you all chose not to provide the woman with a counter argument for what are a few very valid points. Instead you all spend time trying to discredit her as if that diminshes the validity of her argument. I am so glad the world is finally waking up to some of the injustices against men and boys.
