If you’d actually paid any attention to what I wrote, rather than gunning from the chip on your shoulder, you’d have noticed that a large part of this piece was devoted to me describing trying to listen to and better understand (and perhaps be of help to) an angry guy that I was talking to. He was rude to me (repeatedly over several conversations) and made it clear that he thought that women were worthless bitches, and I still tried to listen to him and understand his pain and where guys like him are coming from.

The point of this whole thing is that our social system that demands this kind of stratification is what’s at fault. Since then I’ve gone on to write a dozen or more pieces that explore other aspects of living in a social hierarchy that is domination based and how that is harmful to everyone — including men (which this piece does as well — if that wasn’t clear to you, that’s once again the big chip on your shoulder that is occluding your perception).

My descriptions of what blackpills are (the only pill I described other than one quote) and how Chads are perceived comes from articles that I cited in the OP which quoted from 4-chan, reddit, and the manosphere glossary. If some blackpills and incels don’t describe this stuff the way you would, that is also not my fault or my problem.

I have plenty of empathy for men and write about that all of the time. I’d say about 60% of my 2.2K fans are male. So how about you take a deep breath FFS and stop projecting all of your considerable hostility onto other people.
