If it requires more than a basic level answer/explanation, I usually ignore it. When the oppressed spend time educating their oppressors, they are taking time away from their pursuance of liberation, and are distracted with the needs of their oppressor.
When we say, men are trash, we mean all men, in all ways, are trash. Listen to us before you interrupt us and talk over us to tell us how to navigate our oppression. Men being trash extends beyond their involvement with their significant other.
