As you were, Tino Hadley. I was only trying to help. I think to write an article about your failure as protector of women that results in women wanting to alleviate that feeling of failure off a young kid’s shoulders, only to get irritated because you disagree with wording (my interpretation of stuck and yours are probably very different. because i said NOTHING different in this response than I did in the initial response to you, and you had an entirely different reaction, to a note that, no offense, wasn’t even directed at you) is a little disheartening.

No one maligned you here, no one spoke ill of you. Everyone showed you unfaltering support. But we showed TOO MUCH concern or THE WRONG KIND and your whole attitude has shifted.

You can’t police people’s reactions to what you write; you can certainly disagree. When I disagree with a response to my writing, though, it’s usually because someone is trying to malign me. Not because they’re trying to show support (just not the kind of support I like).

That said, have no fear. Over and out.

Carry on.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
