Food for thought– should women who are emotionally and/or economically invested in second-class status have the power to shape laws that effect other women?
Tracy Higgins explained in 1997 why courts should review and sometimes even reverse democratic outcomes in order to ensure equal protection on the basis of gender. Constitutional theory presumes an autonomous, self-defining individual and thus justifies “state action as the legitimate expression of popular will.” Feminists have countered that this liberal view of individual agency does not capture women’s experiences under patriarchy. Instead, people’s preferences are socially constructed, such that “women’s choices should be understood as neither fully free nor completely determined.” In other words, “[h]ow can a citizen meaningfully consent if her nature and beliefs are them-selves a product of the system to which she consents?” Situated within certain cultural norms of “language, law, myth,[and] custom” some “individuals may not be the best judges of their own interests or those of the community.” This is a controversial view of agency. An alternate view is that women gay support policies that are not in the strategic interest of their gender because changes “could threaten the short-term practical interests of some women, or entail a cost in the loss of forms of protection which are not then compensated for in some way.” However, under either conception of agency, the failure of democratic processes to ensure gender equality means that judicial review can be necessary to check majority outcomes.

Why Women Aren’t Welcome on the Internet by Amanda Hess at Pacific Standard
According to a 2005 report by the Pew Research Center, which has been tracking the online lives of Americans for more than a decade, women and men have been logging on in equal numbers since 2000, but the vilest communications are still disproportionately lobbed at women. We are more likely to report being stalked and harassed on the Internet — of the 3,787 people who reported harassing incidents from 2000 to 2012 to the volunteer organization Working to Halt Online Abuse, 72.5 percent were female. Sometimes, the abuse can get physical: A Pew survey reported that five percent of women who used the Internet said “something happened online” that led them into “physical danger.” And it starts young: Teenage girls are significantly more likely to be cyberbullied than boys. Just appearing as a woman online, it seems, can be enough to inspire abuse. In 2006, researchers from the University of Maryland set up a bunch of fake online accounts and then dispatched them into chat rooms. Accounts with feminine usernames incurred an average of 100 sexually explicit or threatening messages a day. Masculine names received 3.7.
Rape and Death Threats: What Men’s Rights Activists Really Look Like by Katie J.M. Baker at Jezebel
Men’s Rights Activists are rage-filled misogynists who claim feminists intentionally “cover up” issues like male rape and workplace injury rates so women can achieve global domination. Har. Those pesky feminazis, however, keep getting in the way, so it’s up to the MRAs to win the world over. And how do they do this? By threatening to “gag, rape and gut” bitches who dare to question their flimsy politics.

Oh, Andrea Dworkin a review of Misogyny: The Male Malady by David Gilmore at the London Review of Books by Jenny Diski
… we can concentrate our thoughts and concerns on the real victims of the malady of misogyny: the psychogenically challenged male who needs all the understanding we can give him. Apparently men’s psyches are ‘troubled’, they are in ‘masculine turmoil’ as a result of universal experiences in ‘the male developmental cycle’. Lord, how easily the image of the oppressed is appropriated. If women think they’ve had a hard time as a result of being loathed and bullied by men, it’s nothing compared to the hardship suffered by men that has resulted in their feeling the loathing. If you are beginning to get an uncomfortable sense of milky mothers and moist mermaids looming on the horizon you are right, because men’s fear of helplessness, suffocation and submergence, in the inescapably female and deliquescent form of uterus, breast and vagina, is judged to be at the root of it all. Women drip with danger for men, who, as we know, first can’t live without us and then can’t live with us. You can love your mother for a while, but then she betrays you with your father and you have to marry other men’s sisters: enemies, outsiders, who as like as not are plotting against you with their sexuality and secretions while trying to abort your sons on whom the patriliny depends. Of course, it’s not women’s fault that it’s all their fault – Gilmore has all the rhetoric of a modern man and throws his hands up sadly at the unfortunate social and biological arrangements that make it this way – but men suffer from having been given birth to by women from whom they have to separate in order to become men; they suffer from having to desire people of the same gender as their mother (my, this is very awkward, Jocasta), and they suffer because they cannot perform the miracle of reproducing the species directly from their own bodies. Men suffer. No, they do. It’s awful.
