Sorry I've taken so long to comment
The issue I have with that post is that it is directed only at men and pretty much just lists what they should do and where they are at fault. A lot of her points should apply equally to men and women but that isn't mentioned anywhere.
I feel that reading things like that can contribite to two problems. It can lead to men feeling like they are expected to do things that they think everyone should be doing, and women to feel that it is up to men to solve the problem. It all just feeds in to the existing 'us v them' mentality.
I would honestly be less pissed off if the post was a load of crap. It's a good post and lots of people will see it and see that it is missing any mention of women and men working together to solve the problem, or calling on women to look out for each other
