sexism is honestly starting to make me suicidal

August 1, 2022

everything is just getting worse, one of my sisters constantly says generalizing statements when I'm the only other person in the room, my other sister has proudly admitted to going on 'dates' with guys purely to get a free meal, and she's able to pay she just doesn't want to. My dad frequently makes 'all women are stupid' jokes and is now starting to get a little homophobic. The only people in my family who aren't raging sexist are me and my mom, but my mom has been abusive in other ways so she's safer but not safe.

gender inequality in school is rising, boys are now thinking they're dumber than girls by age 7, mens views on male rape victims has gotten better but womens have gotten worse, the constant sexism and gender bias that fucked me up in school is getting worse, one of my sisters has a son and she's completely unwilling to hear that sexism against boys/men might be a thing, oh and the 13th amendment is just as strong as it ever was, race relations are getting worse, and with rising international tensions, theres a good chance we get ww3 and I get to experience what conscription is like.

but all of this shit plus no one but my mom even willing to accept that sexism might be a thing men experience and the fact that sexism is getting worse is just making me want to cry, and scream, and kick a wall, and cry some more and then just take a really really long nap and not wake up

It can be tough dealing with vitriolic attitudes. My advice is to vow that you will not participate in any of it and just do you.

You owe it to yourself to be sane and not deal with other people's shenanigans. Glad to have you here brother.

You can't control the world, but you can shape your world.

Most of the people you surround yourself with right now are abusive, mean and sexist is some ways. You need to find kind and progressive friends. Life will feel very different once you do.

We are all human beings that can self-reflect. Stay away from all this men and women talk. Social media and its algorithms is responsible for the rise of sexism due to the nature of this kind of content. The algorithm knows exactly how to get interaction out of you. It makes you laugh, it tries to make you angry.. etc. It shapes your views by showing you what you fear and what you love.

You have to understand that this is something happening to a lot of people and when they have an unfortunate dating experience the psyche would rather be cynical and egotistical, overgeneralizing that all women, all men are bad in this and that way, are justified to be bad and this and that way.. because this is a world view that ultimately keeps them safe from getting hurt. Of course everybody who has this struggles with it because of their conflicting desire to be loved.

Again, stay away from people who consume content or actually think in those ways even when you can see some truth in what they are saying. We are all human beings and we probably assume most people are more backwards than they truly are. Peace and love, brother. Stay strong.

Incels and hateful feminsists have a lot more in common than they think.

its even scarier because an individual women being sexist has a larger effect than a individual man being sexist because women have frequent access to kids with schools and moms and daycares and stuff in a way that men just don't. and like my nephews dad very much wants his kid to have a better life than him, but my sister only sees him as 'cute kid' and absolutely no consideration for the adult he might become or the things he might experience and this was a general trend among parents when I was in school. and that plus that the average women has less of an idea of what the male experience is like than the average man has of what the female experience is like just scares me into thinking that nothing is ever going to get better no matter how much time passes

Narrow down your world. This is something we all have to learn to do as adults. Don't worry about the news, don't worry about what's happening in another part of the world, don't worry what's happening on another street in your town. don't worry about your neighbors. don't worry about your family of origin... Just worry about yourself. focus on yourself.

The only thing you can control is yourself. focus on what you actually have the power to control, otherwise you will just be an observer in your own life and will lose control and lose your mental health along with it.

You can try and change their minds, or just try not bring it up.

Don't let them win... Never give up...

This is scarily accurate to what I feel as of lately

You can kill a man, but you can't kill an idea.
