To accuse me, or any other woman on this list of having a problem with men as a gender is absolute nonsense. The most beloved person in my life is a man, and a very masculine one at that.

I view your diatribe as a revealing of what you think of women, more than of what we think of men. I hope that you will think about that, and stop using transhumanist and libertarian ideas as a platform for your own anger towards women. Until then, I do not plan to respond to any more of this.
