I remember when I identified as a lesbian. I hated the fact that men treated me like a woman because I wanted to be treated like a brother. I longed for the brotherhood between men, and I’m grateful because I now have that. But sometimes, I feel that I have lost the sisterhood that I had with women.
There is a beautiful and sacred trust that women share, even straight women to lesbian women, that most men are denied access to. Sexual jokes that women might have laughed at before, can now be taken for sexual harassment. I find blocks where there was once passage, the walls of scar tissue, ghosts of the men who came before, and the impact craters of toxic masculinity.
I have to be more careful of my language. I have to work harder to make my intentions clear, especially in sexual expression, because I’m not in that circle of trust anymore. I have to be stronger, wiser, and much more compassionate.
It seems that men have to constantly prove that they are not perverts, and that they don’t have ulterior motives. It’s a little demeaning, and yet I understand that the collective Feminine is just trying to protect herself, as she should.
Men have collectively made their bed with women, creating a canyon of misunderstanding, hurt, and fear. The disconnection between men and women is tragic. Repairing that bridge takes some work.
I find myself doing this work, looking for brotherhood while holding space for the collective Feminine, healing my toxicity, doing my best to show that I’m a good guy, and hoping the next generation of Masculine energies might be better than this.
I also hope my queer friends realize how much this world needs us to be who we are, as our energy helps to repair the bridge between men and women, to restore balance, and to bring sanity back to this crazy world.
Thanks for listening. Bless up.
