See, no, we can’t do that for you. We can’t actually explain your lives. To me, anyway, there are mysteries of Being Male and/or A Man that only people who are doing that can credibly explain to me.

My name is Mari. That much I can explain as Someone Who Is Not Named Maria. But I cannot speak to the experience of People Who Assume Every Woman Is Out To Uphold A Double Standard. Do you follow?

Like what you read? Give Mari Wheeler a round of applause.

From a quick cheer to a standing ovation, clap to show how much you enjoyed this story.
