Columnist David Hon might not be an underwear model, but he knows what he wants in a relationship — and what he doesn’t: irrational hatred of his DNA.
Last week, Hon penned a column titled “Why I’ll Never Date A Feminist.” In response, feminists … well, they proved his opinion to be a wise one.
If you look for a reason to hate men, chances are you’re going to find it.
The truth is, I don’t blame women, (especially in my generation) for hating men. They’ve been told there’s a wage gap (I disagree). That there’s a culture of rape on college campuses (I also disagree). And the patriarchy is keeping them oppressed in almost every facet of their lives (I really, really disagree.)
Political issues have been creeping into the bedroom. Now, they’re in romance. Because of the hateful culture, men are now demanding “consent texts” on campus before engaging in raunchy, post-party one night stands. Men’s Rights Activists have taken flight with a new philosophy called “Red Pill” which aims to point out how derogatory, hypocritical and vindictive third-wave feminists can be.
The truth is, Hon is one of a growing number of men who are expressing the sentiment that they have no interest in dating women who “are more loyal to their gender and not their significant other.”
But Hon had the courage to actually say it in print. For that, he got plenty of evidence that he hit a nerve — but he also exposed feminism to be the exact bullying, hateful ideology it pretends to fight against.
Every decent person knows it’s completely inappropriate — and frankly, pathetic — to denigrate a person’s appearance rather than address the person’s arguments. But it turns out that’s yet another one-way street for feminists.

After Dave realized that no self respecting[sic] woman would date him, he wrote this article so he could pretend it was his choice.
Wow. If Hon had said that about a female writer? A feminist movement would arise to bully him out of his job. It happens all the time.

Hear that? It’s the giant collective sigh of relief from every feminist alive.
Remember when Donald Trump made a comment about Carly Fiorina’s looks? He was called tasteless and sexist — a portrayal that, to many, is the sole reason they will not vote for Trump.
But a feminist getting nasty about a man’s looks? Apparently, that’s praiseworthy.
Double standards are nothing new. Women have been on the losing end of them for years. Promiscuity in men is often celebrated while women are denounced for it. A tough man is “assertive,” while a woman is “a b****.”
But don’t be fooled anymore — feminism isn’t about reminding people of the Golden Rule. See above: feminism is about hating, and hurting, men.
Maybe Hon’s comments hit a little close to the mark? Let’s hope all the real grown-ups out there — who actually remember what they learned in kindergarten — recognize Hon might be a catch.
