That is an amazing poem, Justin. This happened to me, on this site
, when I was new and feeling particularly vulnerable. So yes, that poem speaks volumes. I really like and trust many people in the chat room, it's a great facility and you do get a measure of people, but if I leave the room swiftly you'll know why.
Graham is right in that it could apply the other way around, but I don't believe it is at all sexist to have written the poem with that title, it was recognising the subject of the poem.
If I wrote about the vulnerabilities of living in a town, would that mean I didn't think the same could apply in the countryside? Sexism is worth debating, but it's a shame if it detracts at all from what is a profound and moving poem.
Thankfully, I still believe that there are a lot of good men out there, and many of them on this site.
However, women who are looking for true gentlemen, as opposed to sex without emotion, are in a vulnerable position. Just being approached, and using energy to recognise the wrong person, can leave one feeling abused (& I mean that), depressed about the future, cynical regarding other members, and worst of all, bring back thunderously the raw grief of only wanting the man who is no longer here. I had my ability to cope ruined in one evening. This type of vulnerability surely is more weighted against females, although men should proceed with caution too.
