    OK, well, all women, all, any, every, who-ever, have it hard. Period. That’s true. I’m a middle class, middle aged, straight white female that everyone assumes has it easy. Check again. Yes, I have no doubt that any/all other women as a category have it harder than my category, but me, personally, to you, personally, we’d have to speak. And I have three sons, whom I raised to treat all of us with respect. Sisters all, all, and daughters of some good/neutral/bad/evil male. Please raise your sons well and give mine a chance.
