By Jessica LeaThe pain of being a man is nothing compared to being a woman.
The pain, for many, is immense.
It is one of the most powerful emotions that you can feel, and yet it is still so elusive.
This is because men and women experience it differently.
Women are told, in their very first moments, that they are the one who is responsible for their own pain.
When men feel it, however, it is usually as a result of being the aggressor.
They are not in control of their pain, so they feel they must act in order to stop it.
And in the most painful and painful ways, men can be as violent as women.
That is why they are most often the victims of domestic violence.
The saddest thing about this is that it is so hard to change.
I don’t believe in gender-neutral language when it comes to this.
Men are told that because they are men, they are entitled to have their needs met by women.
They are told they are only expected to be sensitive to their emotions and comfort women.
And they are told to feel the pain of others, to be the one to protect them.
It is as if men are told men are just like women, but without their ability to hurt women.
And it is the most dangerous thing about all this: That the pain and violence of women is not always as easily erased as the pain that men experience.
Women are taught that men are born with a penis, but they have no agency over it.
They don’t have agency over the way they feel, their thoughts, their feelings, their relationships, or their bodies.
Even though men can make and break their relationships with women, and even though women can change their relationship with men, the pain they experience is not as easily taken away.
And even when it is not so easy to feel that pain, many women will continue to endure it because they want to protect their loved ones, because they have a fear of hurting someone else, because the pain is so real.
In my case, I was forced to leave a family that I loved, a family I had loved and cared for for 20 years, because I had a fear that if I left, I would lose the relationship with my wife.
I was terrified.
I did not know how to leave.
I did not understand how to walk away.
I could not leave.
My heart was pounding.
It was the most terrifying feeling in the world.
One night I went to bed crying.
My wife was there.
She asked me, “Do you want to come home?”
I was scared.
I had not left.
I do not want to say this in front of other women.
I do not have the strength to say it to them.
But there is a difference between knowing you are in pain, and actually being in pain.
There is a very simple difference between the way that men and girls are taught to be and the way women are taught.
When men are taught they are in charge, women are not taught they have agency.
When women are told their lives are their own, men are not told they have to be responsible for the pain their loved one feels.
When there is no agency, there is always pain.
And that is why we need to change this.
Women can not only be the victims, they can also be the perpetrators.
We need to make it clear that we will not stand for this.
The pain and the violence of men is often ignored because it is easier for men to blame women for their actions than for their feelings.
Women feel more comfortable blaming themselves for their pain than men do for their emotional pain.
We should be able to feel what it feels like to be a man and still be a woman in this country.
We have to stand up and say, No.
We need to stop pretending women are powerless in this system.
Women must have agency, too.
It is up to women to stand in solidarity with the victims and the survivors of domestic and sexual violence.
It should be up to men to stand with the perpetrators and the abusers of domestic abuse and sexual assault.
And we should stop blaming women.
The more we understand that women are the victims in our country, the more we can change our society to make sure we are not more likely to see and hear these stories.
