I consider myself very much a "pragmatic feminist." In my own writings, I don't like to focus on the misogynists -- holding them up to show how bad they are -- because I feel like that grants their ignorant POV more power and influence than it deserves. I'd rather work with male allies in a constructive way, if possible. So when I see feminists complaining about "nice guy entitlement", my first instinct is to say "Hey, let's cut them some slack -- at least they're trying to be nice, and that should be encouraged..."
Then I read this article (hat tip Bloggernacle Back Burner). It so perfectly captures the problem with self-described "nice" guys, that I almost wonder if it's satire! But whether it's satire or real, it's just sad.
I'm not saying this guy is a misogynist, BTW, but I will say that he's a bit clueless and self-absorbed. Or rather, he lacks the ability to read social cues, and in frustration he directs his hostility at women.
I kind of feel bad for him, but I feel worse for his unnamed female friend you can see behind his rant.
