Men as untouchables

I opened up my TV guide today to find an ad for a new charity group, dedicated to fighting poverty overseas. The strange thing is that the charity will only help women, not men.

This seems to me to be an act of politics rather than charity. You could only justify it if you had political notions about men being privileged oppressors, or if you saw politics primarily as a struggle of women against men.

It makes me pity the women who think this way. Men and women are not meant to be set apart like this.
