An Observation

It's interesting how many men will dismiss out of hand any number of women reporting some iteration of misogyny as our lived experience, because lived experience "proves nothing," but then will take as definitive proof one Exceptional Woman saying, "That's never happened to me."

Millions of women saying: "This is my experience, and it is misogyny" = Nope.

One Exceptional Woman saying: "Never happens to me" = SOLID GOLD.
