What About Teh Menz?

It never ceases to amaze me, on articles like this on the Good Men Project website, commenters will jump on writers for this or that.
This article talks about the proper way to stare at a woman. (I won’t go into my issues with THAT, suffice it to say that staring is rude, period.) In one sentence, the author, Hugo, says that he believes it’s entirely appropriate for women to be suspicious of leering men.
Cue commenters: “But WHHHHYY aren’t you writing about the WOMEN who stare? Huh? Misandrist! Propagator of feminist lies!”
Um. Perhaps because the website is called the GOOD MEN Project? Perhaps the article is aiming toward encouraging men to be Good Men?
These commenters seem to think that becoming good men rests on their ability to make women look bad. Thankfully, Goodness is not a zero sum game.
