I feel this so much! No matter what I write about, here are the responses I get from men:

  • Regurgitating my main points and finishing up with a flourish of “I hope this helps open your eyes” or, maddeningly, “Hope this helps”
  • Accusing me of being selfish/childish/man-hating and telling me to “grow up” or warning me of how I’m going to end up alone (NVM that I’m married…)
  • Offering unsolicited life advice that’s as generic AF

To be fair, some women are condescending as well, but not nearly to the extent that men on Medium are! Oh, wait, #Notallmen…
