I guess some women are able to absolve men from the consequences of their actions easier than others. Or maybe, in another 20years when I’m her age I’ll agree.
I watch my male friends with daughters and admire their use of descriptive language. Their awe struck statuses at every new development, from walking to talking to graduating kindergarten. The love they pour into these miniature versions of themselves. The pride they take in protecting and molding these little human females. I see that and I search for the source that should have been pouring into me in that way.
