    Being a better listener doesn't preclude you from being an active participant.  In the case of feminism, it's just a suggestion that you're really not a position of expertise over women, and that requires you to take cues instead of just asserting your ground.  If it's important for you to be able to assert your position over someone, then yeah, you need to find somewhere you're more comfortable.  But I think that's a problem.
