Thank you Maggie for revealing your experience AND your feelings too. I’m reading this and seeing the damage I have done. Whether it is intentional or unintentional the damage is still done.

The reason why I came to this article was the part in your bio that said…”Truth-teller.”

Thank you for sending this out so that men like me can read your perspective and recognize that piece of me that exists in it!

Deep gratitude and sadness,


A believer in Lifelong Learning and Collaborative Wisdom, remembering Who I AM through essay, story, and poetry. Listening for narratives that nurture Life.
