This is exactly it. I am a victim of rape (#metoo). I actually had women when attempting to communicate tell me that I couldn't understand rape because I was a man, even with knowing my situation.

These were SJW folks. It just made me SMH.

As for masculinity, I wouldn't version it as a movement. To do so would mean a group of people actually moving together and knowing. I would prefer to see men become more authentic to the positive side of masculinity and it's spirit. Also, to embrace the feminine spirits within biological males also, since we do have it.

The issue was lack of authenticity and applying issues for resolution, means that one could solve the issues but never do it the right way. So the ends would never be justified by the means.

:) You are right about role being flipped though, if women knew the hellscape men live with they would be floored. One group of women that get a glimpse into that are mothers of boys.

A point example one can see is women can be (from society viewpoint) as the bringer of life "and" death. Men only see themselves as the bringer of death. A group of women that might gleam an idea of the feelings view would be women that truly desire to be a mother but can't either due to biological issues, or issues of society where they are deemed undesirable by men. If one captures that loss that gives a view of it.

It is messed up in reality, we all can help one another cover and manage our internal black holes in our lives, but all it takes is having the empathy and sympathy to do so and most importantly being human.

Personally, as women gain the power and equality (this is good in my book) and some even take misandrist views. They are going to learn what men learned a long time ago. It is a lonely life being single and truly independent. One starts with high standards and expectations, and then realizes they are walls that limit access to true happiness. One can be very content but until one finds their partners (female or male), being content only goes so far, anger increases sadness, and life just floats.

For me I want to be happy as I do the women in my life ...
