Recently, Oscar winner Halle Berry had shared an Instagram post that read: “Women don't owe you shit,” perfectly normal given the pervasive misogyny and male entitlement we keep seeing even in this day and age. No surprises though that some men would take it totally out of context and feel challenged and defensive. One such user decided to nastily respond to Halle's Instagram post, by commenting: “Says the women who can't keep a man,” kind of actually proving Halle Berry's point. Not, one to take it lying down, she fittingly shut him down with a brutal, “Who says I wanna keep the wrong man? cuz....I don't.” Check out her post along with the comments below:

Earlier, Halle Berry had opened up to the Hollywood Foreign Press Association about teaching her 7-year-old son, Maceo Martinez, to confront gender stereotypes, by saying, “I have a seven-year-old son, and I have realized what my job is in raising him. If we want to have a future that's different, that is where it starts. You made me think of how many conversations I've had with him, say, since he's turned five years old, about the differences in boys and girls, and I see how he's taught to feel like he's superior, at five, than girls are.”
“I've had to really break that down for him and give him a new perspective, and challenge those thoughts and ask him to identify where that comes from, and if he believes that or not and challenge what he's subconsciously getting from somewhere. I can tell that because we're having those conversations he is going to grow as a deep thinker on the subject. He's going to be determined not to just accept it. I keep challenging him all the time, like 'Well, why is that a 'girl color?'” she had added.
Well, good on you, Halle.
