How is it so difficult for men to just shut up?
Also why is it more important to go "Not all men! I myself see women as equal" instead of "You're right, most of my fellow men are the worst and so, so many people have suffered because of that"?

Totally unrelated: blocking people feels amazing. 😏

Because most men are trained to think in terms of offense and defense, instead of cooperation and consensus. Overcoming our cultural programming takes more effort than most men are capable of. Changing the culture, and how we raise our children, will help with this, but it's a long, slow, painful process.

@julia how do people ignore men being awful somewhere in their periphery at least every 45 minutes

@julia Yeah, it's hard for us, but when we understand what you mean, it's like we finally see the sun
