Few stories are ever the work of one author. The Masculine Mystique Blamed Right is ultimately a collaboration of many people. The vast majority of insights found on his blog come from women who bear the lion's share of suffering under the Masculine Mystique and who understand firsthand the evils that men have wrought.
To that end, I would like to thank the many feminists who have helped me work on The Masculine Mystique Blamed Right. You will find references to their contributions on the relevant articles. If this blog succeeds in its mission, it will be because of you.
I would like to thank my S.O., Snowdevil, who is the smartest, kindest, and strongest person I have ever met and likely will ever meet. She is the one who knocked the scales from my eyes, and for that I am truly grateful. I have marked entries that were inspired by her insights. She's one hell of a writer too, and I wish you could read her work, but I am afraid that feminism has taken her life in a direction that leaves little time for blogging. I will do my best to enable her to rant in absentia.
I also want to thank the cocky, self-assured antifeminist jerkwads who occasionally flame my blog. You give me laughs and ammo for future posts (why else would I allow Anonymous commenting?). I especially enjoy shitcanning book-length, rage-filled diatribes after reading only the first few sentences. I hope they don't work too hard on those things.
Finally, thank you, the reader, for your patience and words of support! I don't think any sane person wound continue writing for long if they felt like they were talking to an empty room. Thank you for proving that this blog is not an exercise in futility.
With sincere gratitude to you all,
