You are severely missing the point. It’s not that a man here is failing to take into account your own evaluation of what you want as a woman (as a proxy for women in general).

This point shouldn’t be controversial, given that the subject of this article is about how men don’t understand what it’s like to be a woman. You certainly can’t have it both ways, without being hypocritical. You should take a moment to reflect on whether or not you really understand how men treat each other, how that experience is lived, and whether you’re even in a position to know that you want that.
