Battle Of The Sexes...uh...Genders

Dr. Helen's got a great post about misandry and misogyny. Go read it.

My favorite anecdote in this regard comes from a battered women's shelter in San Francisco. A woman living there was attacked and beaten by her significant other. When police investigated, they asked about security measures in the shelter. Apparently, the only security rule in place was "we don't let men in."

The victim's attacker was, you guessed it, a woman.
