I’m not giving any claps to this article because I have tears stinging my eyes and I don’t know how I can laud an essay on how your experience with men has been so completely dark and disturbingly evil. I’m so sorry. Most of these things have happened to me too, albeit in different ways because I live in India and social difference blah. And I know that you’ve taken the high road and learnt from it and become a strong person and an incredibly inspiring woman but I’m still sending you a deep-felt hug for each one of these incidents because every time it happenned to me, that’s all I had needed and instead I got victim-blaming dialogues of which I won’t bore you now. Thank you for writing this.
