Haim's argument somehow reminds me of the man (whose name I do not know) who - when confronted by a group of protestors against the 'rape culture' so prevalent in India - said:
"You people want to deprive us males of the God-given right to rape?!!"
I put (in all seriousness) the following question to Haim:
Should all of us males who are really, really, REALLY males support that particular male's argument?
