Hi Michelle, great piece. I see you’re an MFA candidate, which means you might teach college students at some point (or maybe you already do — I do too). Anyway, after reading the shocking number of comments from men who are SO SO concerned about your sexuality and so full of helpful advice for you about what your husband (whom they don’t know) needs, it occurred to me that you’ve now given yourself a *fantastic* corpus of text that you can use to show your students EXACTLY what mansplaining looks like!! LOL. Good god. Thank you for a good read. :) ❤
