Do some research on "Red Pill" men. They often come from single mothers, "feminist" mothers, and nuclear families. They were never, ever actually harmed by women in their lives....Think about if you really, really believe there was/is a shortage of parents who tried to teach their sons to respect women's boundaries, at the bare minimum.

I'm not aware of any evidence for this claim (depends on our definition for "Red Pill"). It is true however that single mothers are much more likely to produce damaged individuals, both male and female. So evidently the problem is not masculinity but lack of masculinity. Indeed this has even been observed in elephants: get rid of the adult males and watch the young males run amok. Good job feminists.

Misogynists are made, not born. Feminism does an excellent job of producing misogyny where none previously existed. Because feminists attack the role of the father and falsely portray domestic domestic as a patriarchal conspiracy they create the very problem they claim to oppose.

For example anyone who has studied male serial killers who target females can't help but note that almost all of them were abused by their mothers. This is even mentioned in David Fincher's "Manhunter" series ("it's always the mother"). Warren Farrell has noted that almost all school shooters come from single mother households. So while we all focus on gun control and video games we're missing the elephant in the room. One of the more interesting facts to come out of recent studies on this matter finds that fathers are not only crucial in producing stereotypically masculine traits (eg stoicism, self-reliance) but also stereotypically feminine traits (eg compassion, empathy). And this goes for both boys and girls. Needless to say this fact has not been well covered by feminists because it flies in the face of their crazy theories.

Finally we can take the issue of rape itself. Most people here are aware that females are just as likely to sexually abuse the opposite sex (men are just much, much less likely to report it). What few people realize is that studies have repeatedly found that the majority of male rapists were sexually abused by women as children.

"Finally, there is an alarmingly high rate of sexual abuse by females in the backgrounds of rapists, sex offenders and sexually aggressive men - 59% (Petrovich and Templer, 1984), 66% (Groth, 1979) and 80% (Briere and Smiljanich, 1993). A strong case for the need to identify female perpetrators can be found in Table 4, which presents the findings from a study of adolescent sex offenders by O'Brien (1989). Male adolescent sex offenders abused by "females only" chose female victims almost exclusively."

So we're literally dealing with a situation here in which feminists hate men and boys so much they aren't even interested in solving male-on-female rape (allegedly their number one issue). Otherwise they would be obsessed with female pedophilia. Amazing stuff.

Feminism is morally bankrupt, yes, but it is also intellectually bankrupt, because it views the sexes in isolation. You can't address gender issues without acknowledging female power and agency, and you can't help one sex by harming the other.
