    People seldom realize the amplifying power of self rejection.  Glad you made it through.

      But I even had some psychological terms for things I experienced in my 20s...I called them 'white rage' and 'black rage'.  They felt/were dangerous---although I would never hurt either myself or anyone else.  Those are long gone--as is the misogyny I felt back then.  One important realization was that none of those feelings actually had anything to do with women/dating/sex at their core--those were just manifestations.  Actually it really had to do with bad vision from early childhood!

        Like thinking about all of this and following this story and the one of the girl who was bullied about her sexual life and committed suicide - as I think I've said, it raises my level of anxiety, almost like PTSD over that absolutely horrible segment of my personal life.

        Good luck!
