Yes, that’s right! It’s not a competition, so why do you exhibit so little sympathy or understanding for this topic and after reading this particular OP feel the need to make a comment that demonstrates that? You persist in speaking as though they have been indoctrinated into some kind of cult that has no basis in reality. Meanwhile……….. this shit is real; it’s daily life for the vast majority of women on this planet. That doesn’t mean it’s OK for women to say that men are trash, but it does explain why some might feel hopeless enough to resort to doing so.

You seem to have fallen into the pitfall of not being able to examine a social system through anything other than the lens of personal identity. That’s neither helpful, useful, or kind.

I wrote this a while back. If what I’m saying doesn’t already make sense to you on some level, I’m not sure this will make a further dent, but I like and respect you enough to try.
