It's hard to give real advice when you are being SO vague and cryptic.

OP –all I have to say is that I am very sorry your work environment makes you feel this way. I have never experienced any of these emotions in the work place, and I can’t even imagine.

My first thought was that the locking the door was a bit odd, but closing it not. I have one on one closed door meetings with my male colleagues ALL the time, never once thought twice of it, and I am sure that it is not against our company policy. Sometimes I am the one to go in a male colleagues office and shut the door behind me, other times they come to me.

But I also work with a small close knit group, one guy I have an “annoying kid brother” relationship with, and the other is more fatherly / mentor role, neither are in any way a threat, in fact, I have never worked with a man I felt was any way a threat.

Does your company have a good culture? Is it a place where you can feel safe, respected and collaborate freely? I can’t imagine reporting to a job every day that was stirring the feelings that you have shared here.
