I came across this tweet on twitter the other day:
For those who don’t know, wahine means woman in Maori.
Imagine if the roles were flipped in this tweet.
Imagine the outrage of someone saying that women could not have an intelligent discussion. Imagine the outrage of someone saying that women just had shouty egos.
That’s what is pretty much happening here.
As a man, this really makes me mad.
It should not be deemed acceptable to be sexist to men.
And don’t get me wrong here, I’m all for equality between men and women.
But the fact that women have been oppressed should not give them the right to be mean to men.
