I am sorry Elissa ...

I did not mean to offend ... sincerely,
and I most certainly did not mean to make you feel bad.

Judgement is not the issue here and I regret that you feel
it is.

I can only speak of my own experience here ...
and it is that many guys are very uncomfortable having other people present in the restricted
'male survivors section' of this site ...
especially 'chat' ...
and I have seen men get downright nasty about it.

That is something I do not like at all ...
and I doubt that you would either.

You speak of understanding ...

I hope you consider the feelings of the men who come here
to be with 'there own' ...
their own community.

It's not rejection of others ...
It's simply an effort to learn to accept ourselves
for who we are ...
not what we are.


It's just a safe place for us to be ...
