It comes down to the gross generalizations being used with the words. What I have found is for people like this I let them vent and then judge my reaction. Once done I take a step away from them since they are toxic for friendship.
The other problem is when guys mass together society takes notice and gets scared because when massed together men become brutally effective and all in.
Men are attempting to use words and feelings now, and what is society responding with? Mansplaining. There are times when the volume of voice pounds out others that are more meek, but some folks misinterpret the view that men are parroting in agreement what another says.
Men need more love and care and concern in platonic love. The problem is so many people are so lonely and as such horny that friendship is misconstrued as sexual intent.
I don’t know how we fix this …
