gotta vent this somewhere: today I've seen a lot of content trying to raise awareness about the violence against women. While I agree that it is terrible (not more and not less than violence against any human being btw), as a straight male it also makes me shameful and totally unwilling to interact with women

I see content like "don't criticize her, don't tell her what to do", a lot of stuff that I'm not supposed to say do or talk about with women and fuck, it is exhausting. I'm already shy and don't approach women, all this stuff makes me so afraid of doing the wrong thing that I may just go talk with my bros for the rest of my life

Sometimes I feel so very socially inadequate
