I’m going to quote myself

‘Equality’ and ‘respect’ are just pieces of hollow rhetoric when they are not backed up by real world actions.

Abusive misogynist men say they ‘respect’ women, and hold them to be ‘equals’, while they engage in behaviour that completely contradicts these claims.

It’s become another piece of identity politics, men ~self identify~ as ‘respecting’ women, and then feel like they have a free pass for all their abusive behaviour.
