As for tl;dr - here’s why I think men should read it:
“I want [these men] to be forced to feel, for even one minute, what it feels like to have so much … thrown at them for nothing more than being female and not wanting to share.
And then I debated whether or not to put it on Tumblr…but I decided it was important. Because in my own way, I can (unfortunately) point out exactly what is wrong with men when they don’t realize how hard it is to be a woman. How we do not have equal opportunities and freedoms in everyday life….
