Sounds like your response came from an emotional place.

My response was identical to yours.

I still think he is a dick.

My interpretation focuses on his inability to deal with an emotional truth different from his own, an unwillingness to sit with another human being in a space of acceptance.

Anger is a normal response to what we perceive as unjust.

It is a healthy response to unacceptable social situations and conditions which we perceive as harmful.

What we do with that anger is what defines us, to some extent.

Do we recognize it as an appropriate response to the situation and move through it or do we lash out, causing physical/emotional damage to another person or property?

Of course, this discussion is culturally normal for this woman.
