To make things clear, I definitely support that genders should be treated equally.

What I don't endorse is the use of derogative words. It just polerizes the conversation and riles up participants. Derogatives makes people on the recieving end defensive because of what feels like a personal atack.

-Hence why I felt the need to add this comment. A word like "manteruption" might not seem harsh, but I definitely instantly distanced myself from your article and felt strong disagreement.
