Michael, the only thing your epistle has succeeded in explaining to me is that you are a straight white male who is very comfortable in his entitlement, talking about nature and biology and what not. And crowning it all by telling me that women expect things to be handed to them. That’s a huge joke.

My article is a call to action that we need to challenge our biases as regards toxic masculinity. Period. If you don’t want to challenge yours, that’s fine. But don’t try to gaslight women or anyone else with your long paragraphs.

Do have a lovely day.
