Is that Lesley Wheeler the poet and academic, I wonder?

Hard to believe that anybody would believe that Dave is a misogynist, amirite Symcophants?

I think the letter Dave wrote merely points to the fact that women are no better, or worse, than men. Each can be, as he said, "vile, ugly and mean-spirited". I would suggest that it's more mysanthropy then misogyny. If one must put a label on it.

I think the only real difference is that men have been able to prove themselves to be "vile, ugly and mean-spirited" longer. So in that regard I guess that means that women have some catching up to do.
