I hear what you are saying, but I don’t believe I’ve ever been too far from this place all along. I just finally got around to writing about it.

I do want to write something however about how so many men don’t want to acknowledge that they are a byproduct of a social system that harms us all. They still want to point at women (and POCs) who are speaking up as the problem. You’d think having focus shifted from them as individuals to the society we all live in would be more acceptable, but it doesn’t seem to be. Perhaps because we are also so indoctrinated around being individuals rather than a part of society.

Anyway, I’ve still got a ways to go in the book, so no doubt there will more writing that comes out of it. Thanks for the continued encouragement!
