Very well written.

Funny how no one talks about paying “reparations” to women they do with African-Americans. Through most of history women were not allowed to vote, hold office, own property, own a bank account, go to college. Until very recently marital rape was legal and only got outlawed in the last states that allowed it (Oklahoma and North Carolina) only declared it unconstitutional in 1993.

It’s cowardly, but I use a male pseudonym 99% of the time I comment on the internet. This is one of the few places I feel safe using my female persona. Because otherwise I’m just waiting for the next man who disagrees with my content calling me the “c” word. I tried going female for a little while on Youtube. Literally got called the “c” word within two days. And this was after my politely saying I disagreed with someone and why.
