I’m also not too sure how deeply I want to engage with male sexual shame. That shit is one of the the most toxic parts of toxic masculinity. But, I also know basically zero men who haven’t been touched by it to some degree, and if I’m being generous, it likely brings more pain to the men who are feeling it than the reflected shame does to me.

I don’t think that means you are in any way obliged to engage with it, though. It’s not a mathematical thing of “if male shame minus female shame is a positive number, date the guy”. :/
