I don’t buy the conspiracy narrative. The system evolves and mutates and grows. Therefore, I reject the notion that white men, or just men, are victims. I don’t have in me to think of myself as a victim, anyway. But I just don’t accept the concept of “rigged systems.” It’s a little too MAGA, and, look if that resonates with you, we each have our own vote and agency and, personally, I put what small amounts of money I have behind organizations that advocate for equality. This is my truth. Mostly, though, when it comes to men, I see failure of imagination and investment.
