I LOVE this, Samantha!!! It's straightforward, edgy and spot-on accurate. I can't help but notice some of the comments from men on this are definitely on the defensive, and some of them are incredibly unkind. Not at all surprising to me because I'm all too aware that when a woman "has the audacity", as you put it, to speak her mind she will be labeled. Those types of men label us outspoken females as "bitches" because heaven forbid, we don't "know our place" or "stay in our lane." Great article and thanks for sharing!!! I hope that some men who really need to hear this, do read and take it to heart. For everyone's sakes.
