But I clicked on it, (I know, I know) and the article and the comments somehow still managed to shock me.

Another editor slapped a guy when “he told me he thought he had breast cancer.” (Okay, that one made us laugh really hard.)

Is it news to them that men get breast cancer?

one Jez punched a steady in the face and broke his glasses. He had discovered a sex story she was writing about another dude on her laptop, so he picked it up and threw it. And that’s when she socked him. He was, uh, totally asking for it.

Is the same justification ok for a man to do to a woman if she takes a bat to his car?

Battered men? The question is, are these men really physically afraid?

One of the comments. Due to society’s expectations of men they are not allowed to express fear, so no, you wouldn’t know if a man is afraid of a woman.

These kinds of attitudes are the ones that make me question people when they say feminism is supposed to represent equality for all.
