In the spirit of ideas worth spreading, TEDx is a program of local, self-organized events that bring people together to share a TED-like experience. At a TEDx event, TEDTalks video and live speakers combine to spark deep discussion and connection in a small group. These local, self-organized events are branded TEDx, where x = independently organized TED event. The TED Conference provides general guidance for the TEDx program, but individual TEDx events are self-organized.* (*Subject to certain rules and regulations)

I agree with him for the most part, but something that bothered me was the complete lack of acknowledgement that women commit acts of domestic violence, and sexual violence. If we're going to try and make a societal shift in thinking, I think another important step is to accept that men can be raped (or beaten) and not just by other men. After all, I think that one of the major reasons that men on the internet don't want to accept feminism in any way is fear that it could only ever make our lives worse.
