Cheap Therapy

The debate last night

For me, was some

Pretty dang cheap therapy.

I used to think

He would only talk like that

To Hillary, but

As my lived experience has taught me

Men treat each other just as poorly—

But with fewer personal insults

And less gender-based tormenting

The thing I think some men don’t understand

Is the cumulative damage of the gendering—

It’s a lot less hurtful to be screamed at

For what you believe, instead of

Who you are and whether or not you’re worthy.
