"It is not toxic just because you don’t like to hear it." Correct. In truth I don't like to hear it because it's toxic.
Your metaphor (analogy) is a quirky one. Are you trying to equate criticisms of a woman like a dog that cant physically maul and the criticisms of a man like a big dangerous dog that could rip you to pieces? How is that even remotely appropriate analogy? Lol I mean how can a man's words be any more hurtful than a woman's???
That is actually quite chauvenist, if I'm understanding you correctly, implying a woman's words are 'all bark no bite (or no effect)'
