During my final 2 years of high school, I watched as my brother ruined his relationships with his friends and his family to be with a girl who was manipulative and abusive. It took until after he got married to my sister-in-law before he could sever the ties, and I’m not even sure if that is the case. Because of this experience, I have become extremely protective of the men in my life, especially when I begin to see signs of manipulation or abuse.
It’s very difficult to watch a woman treat a man like that and not want to get involved. It’s why I do not associate myself with women who act in that manner. I am very receptive to how the people around me behave, good or bad, and it will change my behavior very quickly.
I also have a very hard time stepping back when someone I love is being treated this way and I am aware of it. Clearly, I don’t stand for it, and will do whatever I can to make it stop.
I could never be a princess who waits for her prince charming to come slay the dragon or defeat the evil witch. I would just do it myself. I’m done with waiting around, and I think it’s time to leave my tower and start doing the saving.

Just in case any dudebros are unclear on what this means: it means that your buddy who totally just had some bitch trying to ruin his life by accusing him of rape…almost certainly actually did rape her.
Just keep that in mind.
