Frankly, I think it should be obvious that I was not attempting to ‘compare’ the feelings of those two groups of people. I was merely illustrating the principle that “Not all feelings should be pandered to.”
Furthermore, I never mentioned, “women, who have to spend their entire lives thinking about and/or experiencing male violence and who have legitimate reasons to want and need single-sex spaces.” We had merely been discussing “women’s and girls’ (sic) who would like to have a single-sex changing space.” It’s almost as if you’re being deliberately dramatic in lieu of having a rational argument.
And even if a woman was prejudiced against males as a result of one or more males having attacked her in the past, that may make her prejudice understandable, but it doesn’t make it right. I am not a sex attacker and if she treats me as if I am a likely sex attacker, simply because I am male, then that is sexist discrimination and that is wrong.
You may find it scary to come face to face with such unfettered logic, but that doesn’t make the logic invalid.
