last year I used to be on tiktok and instagram all the time. and, feminism something important to me, I used to follow many feminism pages and stuff.
anyways, after a while, some of these feminist pages would always say something about men being evil, or inferior, gross. and that attraction to men is disgusting and that men should die off already and I just.
I cant take it, ive been told that if I find those things offensive, I'm just downplaying women's struggles and that I'm stupid for feeling like that or something, and that it's inherently something wrong with me.
anyways, these sorts of things have been really affecting me lately, ever since last year to now. I've recently started self harming, I just hate myself so much for being a man, and I feel like I'm disgusting for 1) being a man 2) being mostly attracted to men 3) and feeling like I'm hated by everyone. 4) I feel like I'm just a pure asshole, the worst person ever, because I'm invalidating the very valid and very real struggles that women face because of the patriarchy.
some of my friends have also been saying similar things, "men are vile" "men are disgusting". apparently it's meant to be a form of venting, but I just get so sensitive about how others view me. What's really going on?
this also ties in with the fact that I don't understand how I should view my gender. this has been on my mind for so long l, am I just trying to guilt trip people, or get people to feel sorry for me???
just to be clear, I am in no way saying feminism is bad, but I've seen radfem ideology popping up more and more and I just feel like I'm inherently evil and deserve to die?
am I in the wrong for feeling like this?
how do I deal with these emotions healthily?
how can I confront my friend without invalidating their very real experiences??
can I still be a feminist if I am a masculine-leaning? or am I just whining about something that shouldn't be affecting me real?
