I don’t blindly believe things.

“I’ve seen people affected by feminists who see it as their right to attack men on sight.”

Okay. I have never seen this but I’ll take your word for it. When you say these people were “affected” — did they come away from that incident feeling that they have to look out for feminists when they walk alone to their cars at night? Do they cringe when they’re walking down a sidewalk and hear a car slow down behind them, because they know there’s a good chance that a feminist is going to lean out the window and yell at them, or worse? When they go out on dates with new people, do they make sure to leave the name of the restaurant with a close friend, just in case their date turns out to be the kind of feminist who kills or sexually assaults people? And after the people you know were attacked by feminists, did almost everyone they told about the incident reply by saying that they had it coming for pissing the feminist off?

I’m not trying to be sarcastic when I ask you these questions — I’m trying to illustrate the difference between being attacked by someone who doesn’t have systemic power, and someone who does.

And you say you know people who are “well off” but who nonetheless complain about discrimination. Do the effects of bigotry have to be reflected in how much money a person makes in order to be valid? The black actors who played the various slave roles in Gone With the Wind weren’t allowed to attend the Oscars and accept the awards they were nominated for because they were black. It didn’t affect how much money they made, but they were discriminated against nonetheless.
