    I saw that poem via Feministing, and it’s fantastic and heart-rending. So, of course, the comment threads turned immediately into misogynystic bullshit. GREAT JOB, INTERNET.

  2. Thanks for posting this, Jill. The poem was really insightful and striking.

    Yeah, the comments section is boilerplate bullshit mixed with general trolling. The poem itself is incredibly worth reading a few times over.
