Active and empathetic listening takes a reserve that quite a few humans don't have. We all have ur trigger points and we can be saints on everything else but on them.

So it made me think of an oversimplification, where women on average have PhDs on gender relations and can write articles and men are struggling to get their high school diploma or just entering HS.

Women write articles about gender relations and men write comments.

For the longest time, the roles were reversed, and the ugh women may not like about being labeled a male hater comes from the same toxic soup bowl of mansplaination, toxic cute of masculinity, and male fragility..

Women and men should feel free to tell their stories at all times. We should all try t push back on the trolls.

Men are dark and lonely, and I hope as more equality happens in the world, that women don't get the curse of leadership. Loneliness and invisibility that men have known very well.

Humans are not really built for separation from one another.

Men have a lot of work and are going to make a lot of mistakes and if women are interested in seeing it happen, the ones that are not abusive or troll like should be supported since men don't really feel they have a voice in gender conversations.

My proof are in the ratio of articles on gender.
