the prevalence of memes about men holding on to a single compliment they received for 5 years has me feeling a certain kind of way

one thing that we lose sight of in the discourse of how terrible men are is that the experience of being a man generally completely fucking sucks. does it excuse the nonstop horrifically bad behavior across the board? no. but i think it can explain some of it


@dankwraith Huh. Its kind of like when you tell people again and again they're norhing but terrible unrepentant horndogs they might actually believe it and act like it, eh?

Or maybe I'm over simplifying it.

Ofc there is also hundreds of years of glorification of (cis) male violence and (cis) male dominance.
