Authentic men listen for feedback, and take the time to understand where they are strong and weak.

They also know boundaries are important for both genders and all people. If someone or an article is triggering a person, take a step back think about it, and if the person or article bothers you as a person.

Walk away as this article or person is feeding your inner trauma demons, and learn to conquer them inside and realize the person or article is not good for you.

Now, if you find yourself by default walking away all the time, then get the help and communication and therapy you need. Do yourself a favor and get a female therapist though as one needs to work on skills.

Women do love authentic men, they desire partners and fighters and lovers. What they do not want is faux-men, and if you as a person can fight through and win against the demons, you will find out there are quite a few women that desire your time and energy.

Then a new problem will emerge, one in which the toxic culture of masculinity has empowered the partner to the evil dance of toxic culture of femininity, in which the actions and prejudices will come in the forefront in relationships, dating, and communication.

Be patient with them, but again set boundaries, and if they are too toxic, which you will see happen given equality, then block and walk away as they are not of a high enough value for you as a person.
