However I still feel for the women who are abused in relationships and families, and also for the young boys that predators go for, so I feel we still have a long way to go before people can feel truly safe in their own homes.
but I don't feel the interview addressed that section that feel they were destroyed by their mothers so turn to hate any woman and especially those they persuade into relationships and having families with. Violence is always the perogative of the physically stronger and that is usually the man.

Ample reasons already to hate men?
I could think of one damn good reason not to hate "men".
Not all men could or would treat them poorly.
It would be like saying a man is perfectly justified in believing all women are gold diggers because his experience was so.
My point is that feminists are not benefiting the women victims by fueling the hate that already exists.
Victim mentality affects people from all walks of life and we have all at some point used the victim role to our advantage. However, the victim mentality is a chronic issue that becomes a person’s main way to see and interact with the world. They really do believe they are victims of something or someone.
