First off, thank you all for doing what you do. I come to this sub, and other fempire subs to better inform myself as to how to improve my actions and to inform myself as to the current state of affairs in the world of Gender Politics.
I was just looking at this sub, and I saw the Louis CK video on the top right now, and it brought up some of the ways that I inform my decisions as to interact with people.
I go to a "party school" in the United states (I am also a SAWCSM), and I have always informed my actions on how to behave based on my feminist readings. I always act respectful towards women, and I don't put forward any sexual statements that could make them feel attacked or uncomfortable.
I have a lot of friends, and as a SAWCSM I really have SO LITTLE to complain about, but I am starting to feel frustrated in one aspect of my social life. As I don't want anyone in my life that I like, or am attracted to, to feel imposed upon, I never really make any "moves" on women. However, as time has gone on, I am starting to feel a greater need to be in a relationship, to a point of absolute frustration.
I want to find someone special, but I am having a hard time reconciling the way women feel embattled by the patriarchy and my own desire to make advances.
Any advice? or anywhere I should go to get good advice on this?
