We'd like to close out Awful Link of the Day's Misandry Week 2010 by sharing a little exchange with the readership!

To: DARYL "FUCKING" HALL @ Something Awful
I sincerely want to agree you, and I cannot understand where The Spearhead mainstream contributors encourage the mainstream disenfranchisement of women. How does highlighting the mistreatment men face - for example, discrimination by the police (it can't be mere coincidence 9/10 of the incarcerated are men - are men really that evil just for their sex?), the expectation to provide for a family financially, their increased likelihood to be victimized by malicious individuals (perhaps I'm mistaken, but the last time I checked the statistics men were more likely, not less, to be victims of violent crime), their shorter life expectancies - equate to a desire to discriminate against women?
I would love to share your determination and clarity, which is difficult while I am plagued by these doubts. If you have the time, could you please help me reach some resolution so I too can share your resolve?

GETTING TO HAPPY by TRACY McMILLAN
Terry McMillan's Waiting to Exhale was more than just a bestselling novel - its publication was a watershed moment in literary history. McMillan's sassy and vibrant story about four African American women struggling to find love and their place in the world touched a cultural nerve, inspired a blockbuster film, and generated a devoted audience.
Now, McMillan revisits Savannah, Gloria, Bernadine, and Robin fifteen years later. Each is at her own midlife crossroads: Savannah has awakened to the fact that she's made too many concessions in her marriage, and decides to face life single again -- at fifty-one. Bernadine has watched her megadivorce settlement dwindle, been swindled by her husband number two, and conned herself into thinking that a few pills will help distract her from her pain. Robin has an all-American case of shopaholism, while the big dream of her life -- to wear a wedding dress -- has gone unrealized. And for years, Gloria has taken happiness and security for granted. But being at the wrong place at the wrong time can change everything. All four are learning to heal past hurts and to reclaim their joy and their dreams; but they return to us full of spirit, sass, and faith in one another. They've exhaled: now they are learning to breathe.
