To The Editor:

I wish that there was something that I could do or say that could improve what some people see as the poor relationship overall between women and men in our society. Something that opened my eyes to see just how much that it has deteriorated is an expression that several female college newspaper editors have told me that female college students say to each other–“Not all men are bad.”
Geez…thanks a lot.

Yet, I believe that what is behind much of this is how sick and tired women are of being sexually harassed and hit-on by men. And I cannot fault them at all for feeling this way. Not at all. I am sick and tired of it, too. It is so disrespectful.

Sincerely,
