I’m sick of never being respected by men. Sick of dealing with scrotes in public and online who harass women and put our lives in danger. Even today at uni (I’m a research assistant working for a male grad student) I found out I can’t rely on him to write me a letter of recommendation for grad school anymore because my best friend/his lab partner rejected his offer for a date and he started to become aggressive and rude to me.
Another guy I was getting to know for a while told me today that his best friend owns a sex shop and they frequently go to conventions together.
ALL MEN have red flags and it only takes a few hours or even minutes of talking to them to figure out their problem. Men who only speak up for their own idea of feminism when it comes to defending sex work because they’re “not like other men,” yet they are like other men because they’re trying to get laid.
My own abusive father whose deranged behavior made my mother take refuge with two children across the world to get away from his violence claims that he’s not like other men. It’s so ironic that men cause all the problems in the world and when it comes to individual awareness and responsibility for these problems they always deflect the blame onto someone else.
I’ve only seen men in a negative light from within and outside of my family, only experienced dating with scrotes, and never had genuine male friends. I was never a hateful person when I was younger but the older I get the more I feel this hatred getting stronger towards men because they’ve never proven me wrong with good intentions and behavior.
If anyone has hopeful advice for how to cope in this society please let me know.
