My shock at his words spewed out automatically. I looked at him and asked, "Did you just say he was beat by a girl?" Immediately my friend recanted.

I am sorry that you have not felt that the outcry against misogyny from gay men has been loud enough. Given your comments about Speedos and Molly, I can only assume that your comments are in part the result of seeing the "gay community" as the buff young men on the party circuit.

It's time to change the conversation about gender equality. While at first blush, men seem to benefit from many privileges at work, the truth is, they pay a heavy price. As we barrage women with questions about whether or not they "have it all," we silently assert that men do. And they don't.
