PSA for fellow men 

i cant tell you how many times i see someone on here post about how men are awful and some dude chimes in with "haha yeah we suck". do you know what youre doing? youre taking that statement and making it about yourself. youre literally just as bad as a not all men guy, except maybe somehow even worse because you are looking for sympathy for your acknowledgment that you are terrible. your words mean nothing. learn to shut up.

@dankwraith put another way: when choosing a place to wrestle with your woke guilt, somebody else's replies are not an appropriate selection

PSA for fellow men 

@dankwraith More generally still: when moved to sympathy by a report of somebody's bad experience, under no circumstances should you use an expression of condolences as an opportunity to point out that you didn't do it. Nobody thought you did.

You're seeking exoneration because you feel guilt, and you need to learn how to avoid feeling that guilt incontinently. Get help in private from a trusted friend, not in public from someone who literally just said they've got bigger problems.

@dankwraith Toxic masculinity permits expressing emotion explosively or not at all. "I'm one of the good ones!" is an example of the explosive way. Catch yourself doing it.
