That’s an interesting perspective. I never thought about it in that sense. Are we wired differently? I just don’t understand why people walk around angry looking for a fight, but I really see this more and more in person daily. When I’m out, I can see men easily irritated by my presence in their immediate space. It’s very scary, but I haven’t been writing to diverse audiences very long, so I’m always surprised at how miserable some people are. If you dislike my views, move — don’t keep complaining.
In any event, I have been managing to come to terms with this hate and anger. I just want them to know they aren’t in prison. I’m not forcing anyone to stay and read my stuff lol.
