But you have taken what Alexainie said completely out of context, and seemingly deliberately.

Alexainie makes a false comparison. Of course a woman does not face the same problems that a man does when she is rejected by a man. Her intersectionality of suffering is completely different. The threats to her life are from different men. However, just because one person does not suffer from an experience does not mean *everyone* doesn’t suffer from it. Men have a hard time understanding why women feel so threatened by random men in the world. But just because a man doesn’t feel threatened by other men as much does not mean that women’s suffering is “Just feelings” as you say. I’m offering — in good faith — a first-person perspective from a man about the unusual and very different forms of suffering that some men face, in a radically different context from women. This is a hard task among women determined to reduce mens’ suffering to “just feelings”, but I’m trying. Please keep in mind — far, far, far more men die each year at their own hand then women die at the hand of men. There are many reasons for that. This is one of them.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?
