It is, I think, a good thing when people are able to speak to their own experiences of assault and rape, but it absolutely Q. : I live in one of the areas of the country that was significantly affected by the natural disasters that hit over the past month or so.
Although I used to really enjoy this column, I now find myself reading the questions and feeling extremely angry, as I don’t think that the issue of whether or not someone may or may not have said something mean to a co-worker qualifies as a real problem when I personally have no power, have to stand in line for hours to buy food, and had to send our son to my parents’ house so he could attend school.
I drink more than I should (three to five glasses of wine nightly).
I also spend a couple hours a day on dating and kink websites. I started seeing a therapist five months ago after being “ghosted” by a man who was married.
This may sound flippant, but I can assure you that I mean this sincerely: If reading the column right now makes you want to punch people, give yourself the gift of taking a break from reading this column!I don’t want people to come away from this display of mutual pain and think that by posting a hashtag, they’ve done enough.I’m feeling really grossed out by all of the men who seem to have never realized that this was a thing until now.I’d been taught that this was the “polite” thing to do, but it feels disingenuous now that I no longer subscribe to any religion.I’m sure the grievers don’t notice or care either way, but should I continue to fake pray?
