I think there is a problem that society sees women as vulnerable and men as strong and unemotional... so when a man is abused by a woman it isn't taken seriously and if the man pushes the issue he is called a pussy or something.

I see a huge problem with gender roles in society that just isn't going to get unraveled until we all feel safe and can focus on our similarities rather than our differences.

I see a huge problem in a society where a more vulnerable minority (nonbinary kids) has to protect a less vulnerable minority (cisgendered female adults) from a common enemy.

The problem makes me cry. Sometimes it makes me overcompensate. To be bluntly honest, just between you and me and the entire internet, tusk, sometimes I need a break and I have to pace myself so I don't accidentally overcompensate myself into assholery.

Just a heads up in case you ever feel that way too. It's okay to take breaks. It's okay to feel feelings. The only thing that isn't okay is to get carried away by those feelings and accidentally hurt other people's feelings.

That may or may not be what that drunk woman did, but it was NOT okay and she can NOT do it.
