the prevalence of memes about men holding on to a single compliment they received for 5 years has me feeling a certain kind of way

one thing that we lose sight of in the discourse of how terrible men are is that the experience of being a man generally completely fucking sucks. does it excuse the nonstop horrifically bad behavior across the board? no. but i think it can explain some of it

@dankwraith the joke question “why are men like this?” isn’t actually rhetorical, and the answers aren’t particularly funny

@jaytom @dankwraith
yeah, growing up masculine objectively sucks, and that's no excuse for being a dirtbag but it sure explains a lot
