Re: Do you like women at all?
Speaking for myself, initially, there was a sense of love and respect for women. Growing up around women, living amongst women and dealing with them over the years, not just for relationships but in regards to family as well, it has changed my mind. I believe that a lot of men just "deal with it", stay silent about it and/or speak about it amongst other men. They know about the pink elephants in the room but it doesn't go much farther than that.
I can honestly say that from my experiences alone there are women that had been in my life that I did care about, love or whatever you want to call it. I had a strong fondness of them but that could have been because as a child I saw them differently and they showed me differently. Now, as a 25 year old, there are women that at one point in time I felt a great fondness towards that I feel deep feelings of dislike and aversions towards. Well, there is at least one and this is a relative as much as it pains me to say this.
Do I hate women in general? Well, I can't for certain state a claim like that but based on my experiences, many women and men, if I were to explain my situation in detail would side with the woman/women in question. I believe that this response is greater in women than it is in men and I could see myself growing intense feelings of hatred towards a group of people that would side with a person or people that have tormented me or people that I love.
So do I like women at this point in my life? Well, I can say in some cases, yes, and in many cases I have no reason to. In order to have friends you need to be friendly and it order to be liked you have to be likable. I can imagine that the traits I find in these certain women can't be exclusive to they and they alone. I imagine that many men endure much worse than this dealing with the mother of their children, their wives or even in some cases absolute strangers.
I can't say with certainty whether or not I like women as a group but based on most of the women I've seen, the more I know about them the less fond of them I become.
We could easily ask "Do you like people who...
See? If we asked these questions the answer would be a clear "no" but when we ask "Do you like women?" we must ignore the fact that many women do these exact things on the personal level and this isn't even including the legal things that antimisandry is against. So, yes, I do like some women and I do dislike many women as well. Yes, I know that some men do these things too. So is it okay to dislike men that do these things but not okay suddenly to dislike women that do them as well when women do these things in such abundance?
- complain as if you do nothing right but contribute no solutions themselves?"
- take credit for things you do right but blame you for things they do wrong?"
- insult your intelligence?"
- think they should be treated better than you for no reason other than their differences from you?" (e.g. don't hit or "that's no way to speak to a lady")
- antagonize you at every opportunity?"
- laugh and joke at your misfortune?"
- are instigators and backstabbers?"
- accuse you of being abusive for behavior no different than their own?"
- claim to be discriminated against while actively seeking discrimination in their favor?"
- and so much more

When I do this, and I know I will, it will be comparable to the lame learning to walk, the blind being enabled to see and the suffocated breathing again. The sky isn't the limit; there are no limits.
