1960s: Those people that write about racial inequality should just shut up already. Constantly writing about it won't do anything.
It should be talked about but not at the expense of ignoring other similar issues. There is lot of discrimination and harassment in general that needs to be sorted out. It isn't like women are the only groups getting harassed. Its just one of the more visual groups.
The tech industry discriminates against people based on age quite a lot and other industries have there other biases.
The other common male response:
"Hey, I mean, that's bad, but look at this other bad thing going on! We need to lump everything together, because that's how solutions are reached! Dividing and conquering is never a good way to do that, instead distracting and being overwhelmed is best!"
