I just really find your logic fatally flawed. First, the words “automatically demand that women change their behavior” — just your choice of words, period — implies that men have some sort of right to demand behavior change (they have the right but don’t exercise it), which is HOOEY. First of all, collectively, women have been adjusting our behavior to accommodate men FOR. EVER. Not thriving in the society you yourselves built with you at the top of the food chain and the rest of us just carrion comfort to cushion your life? NOT ANYONE’S FAULT BUT YOUR OWN.

Second — WOMEN ARE NOT NATURAL DISASTERS THAT SWEEP THROUGH MEN’S LIVES, FLATTENING EVERYTHING IN THEIR WAKE. Sure, there are disastrous women; we’ve conceded that. But overwhelmingly, women are your caregivers; your supporters; your confidants; and way too often, your whipping posts.

Men don’t understand themselves?

Gee, I’m sorry. They’re in good company, though. I don’t understand them either.

I love many men. They are my friends. and they would be baffled by what you purport to be true.

Maybe there is something wrong in your life, because you are expressing some frustrations that couldnt possibly be altered externally.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
