I've come to realize the importance of the male gaze to women, either positive or negative. Sometimes I go jogging or just walking my dog. I like to look around at the scenery, animals and people as a study for art creation. I have to go out of my way to not look at women, esp. young women, because I know what virtually all of them are thinking. That men are ogling them, etc. Am I the only one that finds this annoying? Of course, when it can't be helped I don't care, but it seems that esp. teenage girls, whenever a guy even looks at something behind them, they think they are being checked out.

About 20 years ago, I worked in a newspaper office that became a lunatic asylum for misandrist feminists.
From being a happy and relaxed workplace, the arrival of a couple of newly-minted journalism graduates, who had been brainwashed with feminist crap at university, the workplace was transformed into a hellish environment.
It was during this time that I learned to treat women as invisible.
I learned to resist the instinctive reaction to look at something that I saw in my peripheral vision, because if that movement was a woman it might result in feminist loon screaming about the 'male gaze'.
Gender relations reached the point that the male journalists petitioned the management to partition the workplace, so that men and women did not have to see each other or interact. . . except by email.
Management, of course, took the side of the feminists.
The series of events that took place in that newspaper office formed the last straw for me, in terms of wanting anything to do with women. That was when I went MGTOW, before there was a name for it.
