See, what you need to understand is that “Not all guys are like that” is never going to work. Because you’re answering an entirely different conversation than what women are actually saying.
You think women are saying “Every man is a predator and a danger to me.” And you’re replying, “But I’m not like that.”
But women aren’t saying that. They’re saying “There are too many situations where women have to worry about their safety,” and you’re saying “That’s not important.” They’re saying “Women are constantly told it’s their fault if something bad happens,” and you’re saying “Don’t worry about it.” They’re saying “Too often, women find their trust violated by men,” and you’re saying “But you should trust me!”
They’re saying “So many men have decided that what they want is more important than anything about a woman.” And you’re replying “I’m exactly like that.”

HARRY POTTER DID YOU PUT YOUR NAME IN THE GOBLET OF FIYAH
A few years ago Clyde Petersen (Your Heart Breaks) & I wrote a song together, called Torrey Pines, where he is asking how to tell the story of his mother going crazy and I respond to just let it out. Well, he is finally letting that story out in the form of an animated feature film. Check out the Kickstarter page and listen to the song.
It’s good important stuff. We need to talk about mental illness.
Tell the hard stories.
***Please share this post. Thanks.***
I saw Clyde open for Kimya at Black Cat in DC awhile ago and he was, hands down no contest, the best unknown opening act I’ve ever seen. I got there late and missed the beginning of his set and really haven’t forgiven myself.
But aside from all that, this is important and good and yeah.
Thank you. Clyde definitely kicks ass on so may levels.
i love sir patrick stewart more with each passing day.
See, guys. This is how you do it. Notice the words “Not all men are like that” are never spoken.
I get this completely irrational and projected feeling that Patrick Stewart figured something out when he was 65 that he needed to figure out his whole life and that made him finally able to be happy and it makes me so happy to see him happy I just want to cuddle the idea of his happiness.
