Ah, there goes the MRA guy who has to comment for no reason insulting you. Worry not. It is hard for us men to actually become aware of how biased we are and it hurts when one of us tells it to our face.

Yet, by and large, men are all women have, and by and large women are all men have. It applies to gay people too, because if you are binary, the opposite sexuality will drive you nuts, one way or another and you like it more than you despise it. That’s how it works.
It is too harsh to take 48.5 of the human species and call it awful. Miseducated would be a better adjective.
