    Is it bad that I didn`t think how the women were treating the men to be all THAT bad?

    They missed the part where he goes on Oprah and complains non-stop about women, and all the man-troubles he has, and how hard he has to work, and how no one appreciates him....

    blah blah blah

    Yes, yes it is.

    And Gerry, as usual, showing off how much of a sexist pig he is. Disgusting old saggy white man mad because someone reminded him of how good he has it.

    In reality, men are more likely to be the victims of street violence. They are also more likely to be the victims of police discrimination.

    To me, the filmmaker`s bigotry becomes clear when only the "women" are shown to be victims (except for, maybe, the homeless "man", but even "he" was "oppressing") and only the "men" are shown to be criminals/corrupt/sexist. There weren`t any deviations from that main dichotomy throughout the film, and, actually, there are relatively few deviations from that dichotomy in storytelling THROUGHOUT HUMAN HISTORY. So, in glaring irony, this film just ends up being more stereotypical, sexist, and archaic than any "institutions" it is claiming to challenge. And when you throw in, as I did earlier, the fact that the abuses suffered by the "female" protagonist are FAR from being "female problems", the whole thing becomes all the more absurd.

    Stormith - buying into the feminazi propaganda. Women have their troubles but so do men. This constant "Oh poor me, I`m just a woman" whining is just getting old.

    Oh, I didn`t watch the part where the man gets "raped" by the women. I take back what I said before. Everything up `till that part were things which didn`t seem all that bad.

    saw this on FB, was impressed. Watching this as a woman makes me realise how much disgusting behavior we put up with from men, this kind of s hit has become normal. It`s not about feminism or sexism, it`s about being a human freaking being and not treating other people like s hit.

    Women in western culture have it pretty damn good. All the rights as men, less of the responsibility. They have more choices than men these days. They can CHOOSE to stay at home, jobless, or have a career. A career they can ditch at anytime and stay home, and society is O.K. with it. Some can choose to get thru life on their looks. There is no shortage of idiotic bimbos who CHOOSE this path. Some pop out kid after kid and live of welfare, child support, men, and society. Get married, leave, take half, get alimony...lather rinse repeat. Society is O.K. with it. The laws encourage it.

    Men are expected to work hard, support women and kids, and take responsibility. Not many options there.

    Don`t misquote me, I am not accusing All or MOST women of behaving like this, but many do, because they have the CHOICE.

    There is no shortage of bright, hard working women out there. Maybe those women should condemn the slackers and bimbos instead of blindly hating men. <

    Feminism IS great for men though. We get to be deadbeats, yet still get laid more than we ever could before. We don`t have to marry, we can just enjoy the benefits. There really isn`t so much expected of us anymore. Hell, we don`t even have to raise the children anymore. Notice how men never come up in those discussions.

    "Pro-woman" debates about children or abortion imply that raising a child is exclusively a woman`s responsibility. Have at it, I guess.

    I think everything stems from the basic fact that it`s women who get pregnant. It`s the ultimate unequalizer, no way around it. Sane women wouldn`t rape men because they`d end up burdened with the pregnancy, and the baby. Because of that it`s easier for men to be all levels of douches, from catcalls to sexual assault. But also unlike what this movie would have us believe, not all nor the majority of men are actually like what this movie demonstrated with the "if it were reversed" portrayal.
