A company founded on misandry

Today I read about Chariot for Women, a car service which only picks up women and children. (In other words, everyone except adult men.) I can hardly think of anything more offensive.

Just as it’s wrong for a barbershop to only serve men, or for men to refuse to sit next to women on an airplane, I believe it’s equally wrong to have a car service just for women, special parking for women, or a female-only space when no male-only equivalent is provided.

This double standard seems to be rooted in the “women are better than men” stereotype, which would be laughable if it wasn’t so offensive, and wasn’t taken so seriously by so many people. No other group in 21st-century America would so willingly and docilely allow themselves to be subjected to this sort of prejudice—the judging of all members of a group based on a few members of the group.
