I can’t say I completely agree with that statement. I listened to their podcast after they have watched the movie. The guy seems to care and understand the issues outlined in the film. And while treading on eggshells tries to profess this to the author.
The difficult thing is he is just doing what he was trained to do by a gynocentric society, trying to please his woman at all costs to his integrity.
Hopefully he wakes up to the outright abuse he is experiencing at the hands of the author, grows a backbone and leave’s with an important lesson learned, Because now he knows how the author truly feels and how deep her selfishness and hatred go.
