'They were not rapists or murderers or child abusers or sex offenders or incompetent bumbling idiots or any other negative, hateful stereotype we see and hear about men.'By Of the :2977 people killed on September 11th, 2001, 414 were NYC emergency personnel who responded to the attack. 341 firefighters, 60 police officers, 8 EMTs and 3 court officers.
Two of those responders were women. The other 412 were men.
Glance through any newspaper or magazine, browse the web, listen to the radio, watch television and you will be bombarded with the message that men are bad. They are rapists and murderers and wife-beaters and misogynists who delight in hurting women and take every opportunity to do so. That is the story feminism concocted about men and they have been horrifyingly successful in disseminating it widely. Men are treated with suspicion and often outright hatred, and the only reason for that is ironic – because we are more or less living in one of the safest and most secure places on Earth.
