... I wouldn't pretend you aren't broken about it. I mean. You're literally saying half of the entire world's population is not something you want anything to do with anymore. There's something broken there... I can't really buy the idea that you've traveled the whole world and every woman you met was just awful and not worth any effort, platonic or otherwise, at all... But your experiences are very valid for you. At the end of the day, if coping with your corner of the world and what's happened in your life means pushing women away and you can get along respectfully and peacefully in life, I'm probably not going to give you shit for that. It seems to be a bit of denial to pretend it isn't a broken thing.. but a totally unhealthy thing for someone at your age? Meh. Not really the biggest concern as long as you're capable of having normal interactions with women you pass by on the daily and it isn't stressing you out.
We all have things that aren't necessarily in tip-top shape but isn't so harmful either. For me, I can't show public displays of affection very well.. in private I am fine, but in public? Nah. Cant do it. While the relationship with that in my head is not very healthy, it is also not at all detrimental to my lifestyle and the bigger picture. It's not a serious bother... maybe something I could eventually come to work on, but I've got bigger fish to fry and it isn't hurting my relationships to have that aspect to me.
@CoriolisWhile she definitely lashed out at women and had some general .. very passionate.. debates.. I'd say men were definitely straight up attacked by her. I can't remember the two threads in particular I was reading where my thought was basically.. "Wow.. so, the human experience is invalid here because they're men?" The resentment towards men was palpable in her posts.Salome attacked women as much as men, even ones who agreed with her. I don't think the issue there was really animosity toward men specifically. In any case, I suggest you treat women the same as you treat men, one human being to another.
