My experience with the thanks I really don’t want that attention was going in with a friend of mine who is gay “into a gay bar” and getting hit on incessantly, even after I stated no thanks. I am straight etc.

It was not a pleasant experience.

I never said women have it easier, but I won’t state you never experienced other men doing this. I see it and I attempt to correct it and support it as an ally.

That being said, I provided a view of the next level of pain for women on top of the things you stated here in an attempt to have a cover.

I will let your other personalization comments slide, as you appear to have to process pain and trauma from bad interactions with our patriarchal society. Do understand if you wish to have a further conversation, I am here for doing so, and I have unique experiences which has helped me understand the “shit storm” that women go through also.

Be well.
