Funny how folks coming from the left side of the field have a real knack for complicating the simple and obscuring the obvious... How can feminists change the narrative about feminists hating men? That's simple: stop hating on them. Maybe even say something good about them from time to time... I mean, so when was the last time you heard someone say something like, "As a feminist, I have to say that one thing about men that is really great is..." Just sayin'...

Oh, and I very much doubt that anyone outside of the rarified atmosphere of a Gender Studies Department has ever heard of that Valeria Solanas person. Wherever said "narrative" originates, it most surely derives from far more "mainstream" voices than hers...

I do have to say, though, in the interest of fairness, that I do appreciate her apparent openness to at least hearing about "Men's issues." Just as I was about to think that maybe profitable dialogue could be had here, though, she then went on to pay homage and lip-service to every left-wing cause celebre imaginable. If being un-marginalized by feminists requires one to be pre-emptively paying fealty to avowedly Marxist organizations like BLM, then I'm skeptical that any sort of conversation can be productive.
