If men are for all women, and 1/2 the women say you aren’t a real man if you are not a feminist, and the other 1/2 say you aren’t a real man if you are where does that leave men?

That being said thank you for taking the time to share your feelings and thoughts and pain and opening yourself to having to defend yourself to something everyone should naturally do which is sympathize and empathize and be there for one another.

So while you embrace your inner masculine spirit of rage, I offer an ear, and a friendly platonic hug or a broad shoulders to punch.

From a man point of view ( and remember I am a feminist ), men have realized society has nothing to give them anymore. So a hyper majority of men see cries for assistance as nothing more as a woman acting with the rage a man knows very well. As such, you are seen as an equal (i.e. man), and the response men use with men is we either fight (i.e. punch the guy in the face) or we flight (i.e. walkaway).

So what you are observing is men saying if women hate us or strongly dislike us as a gender, then we will just abandon the area and do our own thing.

I actively read things from Bust and Bitch and your stuff amongst other to ensure I am a well rounded human being. That being said If you are tired, take a break and relax with friends and family. If you are angry find out what trauma triggers are causing it and work on those. If men piss you off but you still desire to have them around, empower and embrace the good ones.

You be you and I enjoy your writing, just make sure your audience appreciates your inner feelings. I do.
