In fact, I would go further and say the reason I can stand in my truth here and say that there is a sickness in our culture and I want it out is because of those three people.

As long as the term “culture” is inserted in there, there’s going to be pushback. I pushed back because it’s a misuse of the term; but most people push back because they know that the “you can do whatever you want to women” attitude is certainly not something which is transmitted within our culture.

If you go from “there is a sickness in the culture” to “there is a sickness in certain fucked up men” then the pushback goes away.

The fact that “rape culture” is one of these terms that modern-day university faux sociology tries to foist on us doesn’t help.

There is nothing in me that thinks this is an inherently masculine problem. It is a culture problem and it can be changed.

I would point out to you that there is a contradiction in those two sentences, in that “masculine” refers to both physical and psychological traits.

Please help me change it.

All for it. The problem here is that the phraseology you’re choosing inhibits people from signing on.
