Any advice for someone who socializes with people from work(a monthly book club) but realizes that they really don't want to socialize with the group because they don't like some of them, but still have to see them at work? I need to quit this book club, but I'm afraid the work environment would be even more hostile than it already is.
Is it still acceptable in society for one to be a man? I mean this not in terms of being a "manly man," but exactly as stated -- to exist with the identity of being a man. To not be vilified just for existing, mostly based on the past transgressions of others who have also been men. To feel a sense of (self-)empowerment instead of shame. Etc.
