I’m really good at certain types of communication, but standing up for myself with some of the “virtual” behavior is still pretty new. I used to just shut down and block. I may still do that, but being vocal when I can feels like a newfound healthiness (for me and potentially guys).

But your point is taken: I’m only doing this if it feels “right” for me. I’m no crusader! Walking away is also often appropriate.

You’re welcome: I like guys! I’m raising one! My dad’s one of the best out there! I have some fantastic, great guy pals!

But, of course, there are some super SHADY dudes out there who need to stop!

I have no intention of conflating the two types of men.

Thank you for the kind and thoughtful response, Fubarus Rex.
