Good enough

I’m going to keep this one short and sweet.  For every article out there written by women sharing their experiences, I promise you that there are 10 to 1000 individuals making fun of it.  Constructive criticism is not the same as ridicule.

 

Practices like that caused women to hide their gender to publish.  It made women keep their mouth shut for decades because they felt that their stories didn’t matter.  It’s for people like you that post-colonial writers integrate words from their language and not provide a translation.

 

My question is do you think any of these individuals would have the guts to lay their joys, fears and flaws bare to help demonstrate the complexities of the human condition?  Doubtful.  Yes entitlement is a problem and no, not everything is great or special, but that doesn’t make it any less of a contribution to the dialogue.

 

Dear haters: be better.
