The views I express here are usually things that I don't speak about IRL, especially not to my kids. They are visceral responses that i can't just let fly IRL. I don't even necessarily feel the same way all the time. I had nothing to do with the GoT dispute. What's funny is, it oddly affected me when I read it combined with the airline post. All this talk of "Well, that's just what men did at that time......totally normal. Get over it" (not a direct quote, of course) to "How dare people think men are like this!" There was a line in the airline post about gender roles being shitty. They are. As I said, I express my darkest fears and cynicism here anonymously, rather than projecting them onto the people around me, but I will start posting under my screen name more, so people can scroll past if they'd like to. I'm sure my post get tiring to a lot of people, which I understand.
