From the comments section of a TED Talk featured on CNN about male violence:

“I have read a number of comments on this forum in which men are playing a victim to avoid responsibility. They are generally doing it in the following way, “Men are sometimes discriminated against and no one cares!” As if all problems concerning men need to be addressed before they should act in the interest of women. It doesn’t make you clever to point out that large generalizations have counter examples. These counter examples do not excuse how we as individuals act and we can all agree that women are far more discriminated against then men. Men have a fair amount of power, often at the expense of women and we have a responsibility to make the world a safe place for those without power.” (emphasis mine)

Yes, yes, and more yes. I get so tired of this crap, so bueno on someone else for articulating it.
