No, I’m not. I actually think you and I are having the same conversation. I am well aware that the majority of men are not THE MEN WHO HURT US. And I think the fact that we make this a debate pitting genders against each other is a huge disservice.

The men I refer to; the men who are doing the damage; are predators. They are sick. They are exactly the men who are not going to hear reason or logic, because they don’t care.

but we can’t pretend they aren’t doing those things.

and we can’t pretend that just as it damages women, it also damages the majority of men, because most of the time, the regular guys get placed under the same umbrella with them.

and there are predatory women, too, and they should not be given a free pass to be horrible just because they have a vagina.

men and women should be working together against PEOPLE WHO ARE INTENTIONALLY TARGETING OTHER PEOPLE AND CAUSING THEM HARM. period.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
