I’m sorry to hear you’ve experienced that but it doesn’t change the fact that none of this is a contest. Calling out what is harming our society is our right and duty. Why don’t you speak to your own experiences rather than denigrating other people’s as if it were a personal attack on you when it most certainly isn’t? I very much doubt that any woman has pointed at you in particular and said “this is all your fault!” If you cannot separate yourself from societal dynamics which may not involve you specifically perhaps you ought to seek psychiatric care.
