There are several puzzling parts in Suzanne Venker’s article “The war on men” from this weekend, not least this paragraph: “In a nutshell, the women are angry. They’re also defensive, though often unknowingly. That’s because they’ve been raised to think of men as the enemy. Armed with this new attitude, women pushed men off their pedestal (women had their own pedestal, but feminists convinced them otherwise) and climbed up to take what they were taught to believe was rightfully theirs.” Here’s a sentence-by-sentence reading of what it all might mean.
Or did Venker imagine it happening more like this?
