    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.

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