Not what I was saying. And I apologize for anyone who was upset. I should have been more explicit. I do try and correct these issues.
My post was supposed to say "Hey, I know you're getting jumped on right now for having these feelings, but I have them too. They're not a good thing, but you're not abnormal." But I communicated that in a manner that was insensitive.
I'll take my leave of this thread though, with an apology to everyone in here. A lot of people have visceral, intense reactions to patriarchal attitudes. Being open about those, even while trying to communicate my disapproval of my own attitudes, was highly likely to trigger/upset people.
I'm sorry, and I'm out.
yes, people were definitely "triggered"
you realize you are in a job where being careful with language is important, right? so why do you suck at it so bad?
