Man-bashing and self-esteem?

As I was driving Lucas to school this morning, the car in front of us had one of those magnets on it that says "The more men I meet the more I like my dog" and it got me thinking.

Wow, Laura. Great questions! I've honestly never thought about this before. I really do wonder what our boys think when they read something like that (or girls for that matter- do they assume all men are just jerks?) However, I'd like to believe that it wouldn't have any negative impact on their self-esteem simply because we've raised them to be more aware. Did Lucas say anything? UGH! People really have no clue what kind of message they are putting out into the world, do they?

Lucas didn't say anything, and he probably didn't even give it a second thought.
