When I got to the end and to the comments section, I was expecting a few vitriolic comments from, well, broflakes. Maybe you had hundreds and deleted them. When I write anything vaguely feminist or political, I usually get a selection of “this is the dumbest article I’ve ever read” comments that indicate that I have no business writing. Or tweeting. Or whatever. And although I clearly do not have your level of expertise, I have been mansplained (can I use that as a verb? thanks) often in Lowe’s, and yes, I really do need THIS drill. Ditto about the tech world, in which men for whom English is not their first language never fail to try to correct my grammar. I am an English major. So, thank you. And sigh. And SMH.
