I’m so excited. Because in my usual daily pool of turds by clueless, Medium patriarchy-loving turdmeisters, I found a gem. Yes, indeed, folks and I’m going to Hoist this piece and give it the love it deserves.

The author is Lindsay Rae Brown and she’s acerbically hilarious and she knows how to write. Yes! There are still people here who give a shit that what they put out in the world isn’t fucked-up, badly-written, often plagiarized crap.

Because I do care, I’m sharing the following with you.

Do me a favor, Lindsay, if this got the B-word, don’t tell us. Please.

Enjoy, guys.
