My excuse? I almost died a few years ago. While I was in the hospital, when it was still touch and go, I thought of what I would want people to say at my funeral, if it came to that, and what I would try to make sure they’d have cause to say eventually, if I survived. Things like “she was kind and understanding to all” or “she had a generous and loving heart” came to mind. “She had sixpack abs and a thigh gap” did not make the list.
When Strangers Click, a 2011 documentary about online dating.
It reminds me of that famous Margaret Atwood quote: “Men are afraid that women will laugh at them. Women are afraid that men will kill them.” It also reminds me of something written by one of the mods of Sex Worker Problems: “Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
I mean, it’s just true.
“Misandry irritates. Misogyny kills.”
That’s it. That’s it right there.
