Simultaneous Misogyny and Misandry?

The thriving gender bias that men are breadwinners and women are homemakers is simultaneously misandrist and misogynist as it diminishes a woman’s determinative capacity and casts an exclusive burden upon men.

Heroes, Villains, and Toilets

The politics of toileting have reached such ridiculous levels that those engaged therein have lost their ability to circumspectly analyze the real issues.
