Half of Misogyny on Twitter Comes From Women

A study in the U.K. has found that half of sexist tweets come from women. Based on the amount of press the study has received, this shocking to some people. Dr. Helen Smith is not one of them.  Nor am I. If you think men are more sexist than women you are at best uninformed. That or, ironically, you are sexist.

Humans like to categorize. They like to say all men/women/blacks/whites/Asians/gays/whatever are this or that. When you think that way you are being prejudiced which is nothing more than missing the trees for the forest. It is not viewing people as individuals but as part of a group. That is wrong.

Sadly our laws, which are supposed to treat people as individuals, often fail miserably. This is especially true when it comes to divorce and alimony.
