Don’t be angry. If you’re angry, explain why calmly. If I were you, I wouldn’t wear that. I’d rather be dead than be raped. (I’d rather be dead than be you?) Don’t talk about rape. Do you have proof? Don’t get defensive. Avoid your triggers. Don’t eat at restaurants with steak knives. Are you eating? You look thin. You look fat. No one’s going to want to go home with you. Don’t let people you don’t know into your home. Who do you really know anyway? Don’t walk alone at night. Don’t not walk alone at night. This is your life. This is your life. This is your life.

I’m more interested in a show called Grown Women about a group of friends who finally have great jobs and pay all their bills in a timely manner but don’t have any savings and still deal with sloppy love lives and hangovers on Monday morning at work.

Una gran lección de empatía. Habla de situaciones muy reales para muchas personas, que todos deberíamos comprender.

Todas las historias narradas son interesantes, algunos ensayos me hicieron llorar, pero sobre todo este libro me ayudó a reflexionar muchas cosas. Si te interesa el tema de la cultura de la violación o violencia de género lo recomiendo.
