“ I wonder why some people think that a short story is a statement on *all* men and got defensive”
Because the title is ‘What women don’t say”. Not ‘What I don’t say”. Not “What people dealing with angry spouses don’t say”. The entire story is a litany about how angry, bullying and selfish men are and about how supportive and self-sacrificing women are, especially being the ones who carry the real burdens. It is a story of a petulant selfish child (Men) who are oblivious to actual challenges being silently faced by women. Men get tired of reading the PR endlessly is the thing. Especially ones who are in fact supportive of women and equal rights.
