I disagree with that post about all straight guys being assholes. That’s a bit too black and white. Everyone can be an asshole, doesn’t matter whether you’re straight or not. Hardly all men are sexist dicks. A lotta girls have good reason to believe the worst of men but it’s really not fair to the good people out there and there’s plenty of them. I know good men, I strive to be one. A woman’s appearance has nothing to do with my opinion of her or the way I treat her. That’s just me though :/
If a dog bites you and you’re afraid of dogs for the rest of your life, wouldn’t it be justified? Even though not all dogs will bite you, all dogs CAN bite you. Even friendly dogs can lash out if they’re angry or scared.
I get the intention bud, I really do but “not all of us are bad” is the last thing you should be saying if your concern is actually about the women who feel threatened.
From personal experience, completely lacking any exaggeration at all, I’ve never had a positive relationship with any male figure in my 22 years of life. I’m more than happy to change my opinion if i ever interact with the “good ones” that exist out there somewhere.
I’ve only formed the opinions that I have because of my own personal experiences; there is reason behind the voice of every woman that says “men make me uncomfortable”. Your first reaction shouldn’t be to tell them WHY they shouldn’t be uncomfortable.
I don’t want to be bitter, I don’t want to feel so many negative feelings towards a whole gender, I don’t like feeling uncomfortable or scared when I’m in the presence of most guys, I don’t like harboring fear and anger in my heart towards anyone. But it’s not unjustified, and it’s not something that will change until I am proven otherwise.
…and to be real honest, you’re not doing so great proving otherwise.
