We live in a society that’s sexist in ways it doesn’t understand. One of the consequences is that men are extremely sensitive to being criticized by women. I think it threatens them in a very primal way, and male privilege makes them feel free to lash out.
This is why women are socialized to carefully dance around these issues, disagreeing with men in an extremely gentle manner. Not because women are nicer creatures than men. But because our very survival can depend on it.

My friend Julie met Benedict today. She literally ran a block to catch up to his car and got in the middle lane while they were at a red light.
Her side of the story::
He just rolled up next to where I was on the sidewalk. I looked over, eyes popped out of my head and I said “Hi!” He said “Hi!” And rolled away down the street. I said “I’m gonna chase him.” And I did!
I need to stop asking myself for permission before I do stuff! He said “you’re going to get yourself run over!” I said “I don’t care!”
Happy 38th Birthday to my most favorite dork on earth, Benedict Cumberbatch! I wish you all the best and may your birthday be filled with sunshine and smiles, laughter, love, and cheer.
