To the article on the Men's Rights Conference: ???????????????????????????????????????

This particular group ...

Holding the "men's rights conference" consists of rank-and-file misogynists. That's why a "hazmat suit" is required for reading the aforementioned article.

Might I suggest using

Men's Rights Article

I agree this article is garbage. Especially when it begins to describe rape culture on college campuses as a myth (what?!). But one line did catch me: "They argue that ... men are unfairly stereotyped as violent sexual predators." There have been many times when I've been walking home alone late at night and feel nervous/scared because of a man walking behind me, only to have him pass me and continue to his destination. Are these feelings irrational? Am I projecting these 'stereotypes' onto every man who walks by me late at night? Since feminism is all about equality and ridding society of unfair assumptions (I hate being stereotyped as a weak/passive woman in the workplace) am I being hypocritical?
