7. I never said men shouldn't accept their responsibility

what I said was referring to was the absurd suggestion that all men get vasectomies until legally allowed to have children was an absurd joke and as a man I specially object to it.

I know you think it is my male privilege and all of that that is the stage that I am standing on but it is not. When male bashing occurs I speak up. In my opinion this is male bashing, in appropriate and will not help the cause which, by the way, I support.

Imagine for a moment if you substituted a different sub-group into the joke. Suppose the joke were "All blacks should get vasectomies until legally allowed to have children." How acceptable would that be?

Reverse sexism exists. All men know about it. Few men speak out about it because we know what will happen next. Generally we let it slide because changing the culture appears to us, at least for now, hopeless.
