I surmise, merryclaire, that something unpleasant involving a man or men has recently happened to you or some woman or women you care about. Care to share the details of what generated your opinion? For instance, is it in fact a particular man who's been behaving stinkily, or have you really decided, as your OP suggests, that all of us are stinky? I feel an urge to rise to the defense of men, being what I consider to be a decent and non-stinky one myself, but it's hard to answer your original question with so little information about what you're really on about.
Whatever it is, I'm glad to see it hasn't entirely poisoned your mind. You call yourself merry, after all.
