I don’t know, I think the list you put here discusses issues that are so multifaceted and complicated ... for example, I posted things about sexual abuse a year or two before all these #MeToo campaign cause I felt like needing to talk with someone about them and I couldn’t imagine to do it, so I published it on my personal page on Facebook, but at the end, I change the visibility of most of those posts to private ... I guess to me the hardest part was after reading Justine Musk’s reactions to her husband years after marriage, realizing all the people thought of me trying to present them a reason to have sex with me by talking about stuff like this ... but one thing I can tell you for sure, calling these things “men’s issues” is a reduction of human design, most of the things sexuality and relationship related are not “men's” issue or “women’s” issue, they are couples issues, sometimes they even span the couple-hood like sexual abuse or child custody or some of them even involve the underlying designs of society like alimony & the economic system ... reducing all these to “Men’s Issues” is just lightheartedness or otherwise the true oppressors who wish these issues never get solved would do this reduction deliberately
