I would never call you toxic for writing a response to my story, nor insult you. The mere fact that you assume that, as well as your assumption that your experience defines that for all men, simply tells me that anything I say about the men I care about and why they’ve struggled with suicidal thoughts will fall on your deaf ears. You don’t care because you’d rather use your straw man argument that no one wants to hand women any “responsibility.” If you’d read my other pieces about pick-me behavior and toxic femininity, you wouldn’t even have left this response.
