It seems to me to be quite common among left-wing men, especially those of a certain age, to assume that all the problems feminism addresses are fundamentally problems of capitalism, or maybe class, and sexism will disappear after the revolution. Either that or, because they once got paid the same as a woman at their office, or they know some rich women, or some women who abused their kids, sexism, misogyny, and the violence associated with misogyny just don't exist (any more). Either way they relegate women's problems to secondary status...because they relegate women to secondary status.

A pox on them, indeed.
