It always amazes me how the moralist white knight crusade to help women in distress can take such…

Nothing in this article discounted your experience, at all. Ken doesn’t say or imply, even one time, that this behavior is limited to men. In fact, it’s such a complete projection onto the material that to be honest, it seems like you’re reflexively getting defensive, just as expected, because the thrust of the article is “women experience this more,” which is absolutely true. Not only do we have anecdotal evidence, we have hard numbers to back it up, no matter how much you want it to not be true.

Because you must somehow feel that it diminishes or disqualifies your own experience. It doesn’t. You’re the only person here saying it does, from your completely subjective reading. If anyone needs to take a step back, it’s you.

Like what you read? Give Nathaniel Lichfield a round of applause.

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