So, one time, another blogger used my article as a platform to talk about the evils of misandry, the gendered hatred of men. Since, like most professors, I hardly enjoy the rapture of anyone reading my stuff, I was flattered. So, too, the blogger kindled my curiosity: How prevalent was this worldview that men were unjust victims simply because of their gender?
Apparently, quite a bit, at least as suggested by blogs manned ("manned"--sorry, no pun intended) by conservative and libertarian types. (And a handful of male law professors also admitted to me privately that they felt like victims of misandry in the academy; oh, the things that men confide in each other after a few brews at the pub....)
