|Hi there Deome, (thank God we're not meeting in real life, my phonetics are terrible, I'd never be able to pronounce your name) ;)
Right off the bat I thought this was being written by a woman, until I read another of your works entitled 'A Good Man.' which also felt very ambiguous to your gender, but realised the 'Good Man' must be referring to you. It's really important the reader knows if you’re a dude or dudette before attempting something of this genre.
Anyway, while this does raise some interesting points, and the grammar/spelling is up there with the best writers I kind of feel like you contradicted yourself.
You say we, humankind, should be free to make our own decisions and exercise our liberties.
Ok, sounds good.
Then I found out you were a man.
So I reread the piece and noted a glaring omission.
You write 'Sometimes I think all women are unhappy with their lives and the state of the world, and just want to blame men for it. I'm not necessarily saying they're wrong of course; I just notice peculiar patterns'
You clearly state your side in the argument, then immediately break its back, and therefore its worthwhileness, by making sure you don't offend women too much or, heaven forbid, try to prove they might be wrong.
That, along with you're lack of stating outright you're a guy, which now that I think about it also makes you seem really emasculated, are the only problems with this piece.
I agree wholeheartedly with your ending paragraph, though I wonder if you actually do yourself.
Thanks for sharing and Write On!
