The world today is a bizarre, polarized place where a whole lot of people get off on acting shocked at opinions that were standard fare even a decade ago.
People make accusations.
They give you funny looks.
If you're just getting used to women now, those shocked reactions, looks, and accusations might be enough to make you want to crawl back into your shell... or simply never share your thoughts on anything again.
Yet here's the thing: if you are unapologetic about who you are and what you think, and you own it, and can't be bullied into shame, people will respect you.
They'll respect you far more than those timorous souls who duck their heads and prostrate themselves before whoever dares accuse them of things.
This can make all the difference between a woman who's disgusted with you, and one enamored with you.
