I get really frustrated and feel bad when I see people chastising men for being misogynistic. How can you blame them for being misogynistic when for example they have been cheated on? Or broken up with due to GIGS? Or have in general had a bad experience with women? I haven’t even experienced any of these things or been on a date, and I am already worried about these things happening to me, so in anticipating these things happening to me after everything I have seen on the internet, I feel like I am becoming one myself. I didn't intend to be one and didn't want to be one, but just...
People seem to floccinaucinihilipilificate emotional pain so much. No one cares if you have been hurt in the past or whatever, and you still get criticized for being a misogynist.

A heartbreak results from the interaction (or lack of it) between just two people.
Misogyny is a gross generalization, unfounded and hurting others like all gross generalizations.

I've had a few bad (some VERY BAD) experiences with some women.
No reason to hold other women accountable for what happened.3
