Respectfully, it covers everything I’ve wanted to say, or have over the years.

I’ve been subjected to things like being interrupted, being lectured to about subjects I’m knowledgeable of, being discredited while also having my ideas taken, being ‘ordered’ to smile, disturbed by the aggressive horrible unwarranted things yelled at me as I mind my own business and walk by on a public street, being threatened and called ugly things simply because I didn’t stop to chit chat or because I said no to a date invite or drink, having to argue my right to my own body, my own personal space, and the right to say no and have my no be accepted in a civil manner.

Unfortunately, I understand where you are coming from.

Thanks for sharing.
