    I think Robin Morgan is willing to publicly say what most feminists think but won’t say publicly.  Feminist actions clearly show most feminists share this sentiment.

    Sounds about right. Provided the "hater" is at least willing to back off if and when it's discovered the hated isn't actually actively oppressing them.

    'Hatred' of anyone shouldn't be tolerated.  This woman and her ilk do not represent the majority of Feminists.  Oppression isn't to be tolerated either.  Women or men that share this view of the opposite gender are Sexist to the extreme and should never be encouraged.

    If someone is trying to 'oppress' you, then you need to find support within your community and try to change public opinion, with discussions, trust and empathy and not hatred.

    EDIT; from reading what Jerry has stated, it seems that I'm not a feminist, but an advocate of equality to all, regardless of gender, race, ethnicity, ability, sexuality.....  Hatred is wrong and unhealthy.

    Feminists like her are usually single with no families.

    Taking it out of context and stripping the italics loses some of its nuance:

    "I feel that "man-hating" is an honorable and viable _political_ act, that the oppressed have a right to class-hatred against the _class_ that is oppressing them. And although there are exceptions (as in everything), i.e., men who are trying to be traitors to their own male class, most men cheerfully affirm their deadly class privileges and power. And I _hate_ that _class_."

    At least Az Quotes did not omit the scare quotes around "man-hating". Sometimes antis distort the quote mine's meaning by removing them.

    At BEST it is a variant of "two wrongs make a right."

    Realistically, it is the standard misandry that feminists claim doesn't exist.
