Re "Feminism has matured into human rights stance" (Viewpoints, Jan. 9): While there is much to disagree with in Camille Hayes' article, space only permits the mention of her remark about "the problems traditional masculinity creates not just for women, but for men." Such extreme feminism, as a movement, is taken less seriously than it once was by mainstream America. This sort of insult is part of the reason. No one is defending mistreatment of women. In fact, real masculinity does not do that. I am proud of being a traditional male, the provider and protector of my family, and no man should have to apologize for that or have to change to please feminists.
