When it comes to the mainstream culture, it is not unusual for men to be put down and to be seen as the bane of the earth. This doesn’t imply that women are not also regarded as the issue, but this could be seen as something which happens underground, to speak.
So, while there are plenty of newspapers and TV stations that are only too pleased to paint all men as being a particular way; there are also plenty of websites and videos online that are delighted to paint all women as being a particular way. It may then be said that it’s socially acceptable to put men down but the same can not be said in regards to putting women down, and that’s why this has to be carried out in a more covert manner.
Plenty of Fuel
It seems that not a day goes by when there isn’t something in the mainstream media that doesn’t increase the view that men are worthless human beings. Sometimes, something small will be used to prove this, while at others, it’ll be something that is far bigger.
By way of instance, when a woman in the eye asserts that she has been harassed by a man, not a lot of thought is given as to whether or not that really took place.
The Accepted Narrative
Thus, regardless of whether or not a man is really guilty, he is going to be used to support the opinion that all men are the same. Clearly, if a person is found to be guilty the appropriate action should be taken, however, without the proof he has done anything wrong, it should not be assumed that he has done anything wrong.
The people in the media who support this view of guys don’t appear to care about the damage that something like this could do to an innocent man’s life. It’s as though a man deserves to have his entire life destroyed, irrespective of if he has done anything wrong.
And, if a woman believes that are men are the same, it’s going to be music to her ears to listen to the mainstream media talk about guys this way. A woman in this way may have been in several of abusive relationships, as an example.
Seeing a man go from a position of power to being ruined is then likely to be extremely satisfying. She likely won’t have met this man, but seeing him return will allow her to indirectly experience revenge.
The Other Side
When it comes to what’s occurring away from the mainstream media, there’s loads of content which essentially goes into how worthless girls are. Among the key themes is that girls can’t be trusted and that should they find another guy who has more money/status, they will soon disappear.
And, if a man has been in a relationship where the woman walked away or if he has found it hard to experience fulfilment in this area of his life, for instance, he can be only too pleased to hear other guys say that women are useless and good for something.
Letting of Steam
Because of what a man has been through he will no doubt carry a lot of anger, anger that’s likely to allow him to prevent feeling helpless and helpless, for instance. The experiences what he reads about online will end up enforcing what he already believes.
This is then likely to make more distance between him and girls and make it even harder for him to experience fulfilment in this area of his life. Even so, what this will do is allow him to be correct, and this is one of the ego minds greatest needs – being incorrect is seen as something that will lead to death.
A Messy Situation
There are then women who hate all men and men who hate all women, together with men who despise themselves and pedestalize women and girls who hate themselves and pedestalize men. Therefore, even though it’s not possible to say that it is only men who are under attack, it’s definitely more socially acceptable to attack men.
If a person believes that all men/women are exactly the same and is happy to see a man/woman suffer, it’s very likely to show that they are carrying several emotional wounds. If they were able to get in touch what they feel below their anger and rage, they may realize that they feel rejected, powerless, helpless and worthless, amongst other things.
A Reactive Existence
Being in touch with those feelings is then going to make them feel incredibly vulnerable; whereas being connected with the more surface level emotions (such as anger and anger ) is likely to allow them to feel strong and powerful. But, while residing in this way can allow them to feel strong and powerful, it’s going to cause them to be controlled by how they feel.
Not only this, it will stop them from being able to realise that not all men/women are the exact same and also to see them as individuals. What they believe will define how they experience life, thereby stopping them from being able to experience anything that goes against what they think.
A Deeper Look
When it comes to the emotional wounds that someone can carry, what has occurred in their adult life is certainly going to play a part. Yet, what is likely to play an even larger part is exactly what took place during their early years, and what has been passed down by their ancestors can also play a part.
What happened during their early years that can be what’s defining how they perceive men/women and the kind of men/women women they’ll be attracted to and attract. If someone had a father or mother who had been abusive, for instance, it would have most likely caused them to undergo plenty of trauma, also, it would have laid down the foundations for them to be drawn to men/women who would also abuse them.
The years would then have passed but they are still likely to carrying the trauma of being broken and abused.
It is then not likely to matter what their conscious mind wants to experience, as their unconscious mind will want to experience what took place all those years ago. The trouble is that if a person is not aware of how their early years are affecting their adult life, it’ll be normal for them to feel like a victim and to blame all men/women.
If going within and working through psychological wounds was simple, it would be a part of everybody’s life One of the greatest challenges to doing this sort of work is the mind disconnects from the body to avoid pain, which can result in someone’s internal wounds being projected on others.
The men and women who they come into contact with will then press their buttons, so to speak, but they won’t be able to see that these individuals are mirroring back what they should resolve within their own being. With this understanding, they can wind up seeing themselves as a victim and other people as perpetrators.
