Men and a Bowl Full of M&Ms

candy_dish___envy_by_kamyria-d4watf4A comedian called The Frogman published a post that has been viralised by feminists on social media. In the post, he wrote the following analogy to try and justify that it is OK for women to be fearful of *all* men:

“Imagine a bowl full of M&Ms. 10% of them are poisoned. Go ahead. Eat a handful. Not all of them are poisoned.”

Well… Surely, you don’t grab a random handful of the opposite gender when choosing a partner (male OR female) and, if you are, you really are probably going to have a bad time!

Whilst some feminists are using this analogy to support their cause, what they fail to acknowledge is that there are bad people amongst both men and women – so this unjust analogy could just as equally be applied to women too.
