Fantastic article and advice!
In today’s zero tolerance society that (your last paragraph) is becoming more and more likely, but on the flip side if they are truly lonely and separated from life and society, they should ask themselves open and honestly how did it happen.
In my therapy and I how I fixed “me”, I was hurt by an ex-GF who was a feminist so I hated the whole genre. Once I understood and worked through the pain of the trauma, I realized my experience was smack on exactly like what women felt and feel and then I had an ah-ha. I then became a feminist.
So, my suggestion is if one lacks the knowledge and experience. Read up on feminism (start with intro texts), and as one gets more information challenge your self in understanding how femininity differs from masculinity and work on understanding the opposite view.
As one grows, they will learn to halt their processing of thinking from a guy view and then attack it from a woman’s view and move forward. Find groups that are open to talking and be open and honest that as a guy you want to learn and know more and learn active listening skills.
It is a process. A hyper majority of men that are CIS and heterosexual have far less education on both their masculinity and feminism issues. I like to use the 5th grade average for guys, while women are Bachelors/Masters/Phd of their femininity and spirituality and interaction with the opposite sex. The thing is though, they will never truly understand masculinity until more men become less stoic and open up and share and learn and grow. Masculinity is just as deep and complex as femininity so if one doesn’t understand themselves, then they sure will screw up on the opposite of the gender selves …
Great Article again …
