I understand your fears, yes majority of members are women....but please know that you are wanted and welcomed here. Many of us have going through discrimination because of our gender and the last thing we want to do is discriminate again.
No one should go through this alone, we are for you so please feel free to lean on us for support

yes you are right, most of us here are women but i am with the rest of them, it makes no difference if you are male or female, the fact of the matter is that you have been hurt and need our help, understanding and compassion and we are going to give it to you...
i admit i am a bit wary of men, and have been most of my life, but it is different here, we all come here for help and support and i believe that everyone is genderless here, simply a hurt person, needing support, i hope i made sense...
welcome to after silence honey, i look forward to getting to know you...
