Oh, you have no idea how much I needed to hear this after the Tweets i’ve been getting today. I saw that someone with a typically male name had left a comment on this post and I braced myself. Every other comment from a dude so far has been rude, dismissive, or clueless. I’m so relieved to hear this from you. Keep up the good work thinking about this topic and feeling all the hard feelings. You can’t ensure that your daughter won’t encounter horrible people like this, and that must be torture to know…but, you will help her have the emotional, social, and psychological skills to get through the shittyness of the world.
