As a group of relatively young women, we don’t pretend to know everything. After all, there’s a lot in life we have yet to learn and see. But based on our experiences over the last 10 years—being kidnapped and locked up against our will by a group of three men who didn’t think twice before physically and emotionally destroying us—the one thing we do know, in fact the only thing we can say with absolute, 100 percent certainty, is that men really are the best.
Another thing that makes men the very pinnacle of life in this universe? The way they can just, in an instant, tear you away from your family, friends, and all semblance of a normal and happy life, purely to satisfy their own most sickening whims and desires. And beyond that, how they are able to strip you of not only everything you’ve ever held dear, but also of every last shred of dignity and humanity you have. I mean, name us a woman who could do that! Puh-leeze! We’d like to see one try.
And, look, we’re not saying men don’t have their flaws. Oh, sure, once in a while they’ll get you pregnant and then lock you in a darkened room for 10 or so years while they viciously beat you until you lose the baby and almost die, but hey, we all have our own little quirks, right? And besides, how could you stay mad at men when they’re almost always such wonderful and upstanding individuals? It’s practically impossible! Bottom line: Men offer the very best of humanity. There’s no question about that. Honestly, we can’t even imagine our lives without them

The Onion should not be taken seriously in any form or fashion. It's pure satire. Some of if funny as hell while other pieces miss the mark by a mile or two. In this case, it misses the mark and was written in incredibly poor taste considering what these women suffered.
That said, allow me to finish your statement.
Men are the best at squishing spiders, in which case they can be considered heros.

That is the outrage for me, it really wasn't, but it's being made to look that way.

The fact that it's in really bad taste is one thing, but for the Onion to be unable to recognize this fact is astounding. Yet why would they publish it? It's far from tongue-in-cheek. A line has not only been crossed, but the article has clearly been planted in the realm of S*** disturbing and inciting to hatred.
