What we are all hopefully learning is how much some people seem to think a person’s uterus is public property.
And also how so many people hate women so much they think that unless you tell a painful part of your story every single time you recount it, you must be a liar. That is not how people work. Let women be people.
I cannot tell you how many times I’ve told a story about my college years where I neglected to mention that I was struggling with trauma from rape at the time. Guess I know who’s ready to use that to deny the rape happened! Not every story has to focus on the worst details.
One would hope, after #MeToo, we’d understand why women don’t always lead every story by telling about the sexism they experience. Part of it is because so many assholes are ready to call us liars. It’s easier to focus on positives.
