Dating as a man consists of two things

  • That platitude can’t stop me.

    Im just playing— No it’s something to approach as a young person. If you are bigger & stronger you should understand that other people will experience a different level of safety around you until they can get to develop a trusting relationship with you. I think the platitude that “men” in the back is ignoring gender identity & of course what about professional women in fighting leagues. Do other women who date women never experience fear in this way.

Rhetorical of course— It would do well for anybody to understand that a “weaker” person may always feel some natural discomfort in the presence of somebody who is more capable of inflicting bodily harm.

But as it’s used now: Literally an attack against a gender identity instead of a well policies ideal that can be taught to everyone regardless of gender.
