    How SHOULD the average male feel? The average male SHOULD feel empathy and anger over the ways in which many women are clearly subjected to verbal violence and abuse in the communities they inhabit. The average male SHOULD feel like they are empowered and incentivized to advocate for equitable and respectful treatment of women.

    But apparently, the average male looks at this Tumblr and the comments documented on it, and immediately thinks to defend all men because he feels like he is "under attack", and probably gets more angry over this Tumblr existing (and what it's NAMED, for God's sake) than he EVER has about the mistreatment and abuse of women.

      isn't the point that as a man you can't feel empathy in this situation? it's sympathy not empathy?

        No, that is not the point.

        And that's not what empathy means.

        And that's not what sympathy means either.
