I agree. This advice was even given to me by my (male) divorce attorney. As my ex husband slandered me and maligned my character I was told that to respond was retaliatory and would make me look worse. So because he struck first, he could keep striking and injuring me and because I had tried to be civilized, I was forced to sit there and take it. Never again. Never.

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.
