    Take this:How come its common for young men to be so disproportionately frustrated and angry in general? : MensLib

    Younger guys especially need resources that aren't part of the PUA-to-blackpill pipeline.
    It's a little hit or miss for me. Sometimes there's good threads, but some of it makes me cringe. I prefer the left wing male advocates subreddit. They tend to have good dialogues and constructive criticisms and suggestions. I rarely look at the MRA subreddit.

    I am the Cat who walks by himself; and all places are alike to me...

    For the cat is cryptic,
    and close to strange things which men cannot see.
    He is the soul of antique Aegyptus,
    and bearer of tales from forgotten cities in Meroë and Ophir.
    He is the kin of the jungle’s lords,
    and heir to the secrets of hoary and sinister Africa.
    The Sphinx is his cousin, and he speaks her language;
    but he is more ancient than the Sphinx,
    and remembers that which she hath forgotten...

    Is it really wrong though? Like...you opened resources and tried to bridge an actually open gap of compassion toward a group of people. This doesn't discredit arguments against men who really promote toxic masculinity and horrible assaults. This is asking for mercy to not just be lumped into this, and to have a fair trial.


    After all,
    How can you run from what is inside of you?

    I've felt there needs to be a male advocacy movement in Hollywood to balance the one for women. One complex aspect of gender relationships is that the manner in which women abuse doesn't always get measured in statistics because it tends to be more psychological and emotional abuse, but that can be just as serious. We've seen how verbal abuse is used to coerce people to suicide even online. It is a well established form of violence, but is unlikely to be measured as accurately as physical abuse.

    Greater awareness of mental health issues might eventually allow us to more accurately quantify the extent and effects of emotional abuse in all types of relationships. Excellent post.
