G.D.C.

It's exactly the attitude I mentioned at the end of my latest piece.

When I tell men my story of abuses and toxic relationships, they are aghast by my experiences, like I am a strange creature living in a world of monsters and orcs. They seem completely oblivious of things like rape, domestic violence, femicide, childhood abuse, and so on. However, then, you would expect some human empathy and respect for the delicateness of your situation. Instead, they keep making allusions about you having fun sex with them because they are sure they have nothing in common with the monsters of your past.
