I see this response as very different! It’s not defensive, it’s reflective and compassionate. I wish more people (men especially) were invested in learning how to do that. I do think part of the issue is also how white cis men my age handle nonmonogamy (not well), though I see that as part of the toxic masculinity that tells them to collect sexual conquests and that personal insight is for girls.
