I guess we had a misunderstanding. There was a big fuss over whether or
not men could even use the word a few months ago. I was, back then,
offended for some legitimate but not very important reasons. Everybody
lives a different life and thinks different things and misunderstandings
happen. I did like all the lololols though.
I'd have responded the same way with the Thank Yous whether or not it's a
sarcastic meme. A newsletter's a fucking great idea. Thank you!
