Unnecessary apology #1
I’m sorry. I did it inadvertently. It was just a knee-jerk reaction.
During this month of honoring women, I want to apologize to all women.
I have been or am guilty of gender appropriation.
You see, when I have climbed under the house to access a dark, dank, and mildy creepy crawl space I have at times “screamed like a woman.”
I know, I know. I am not proud of it.
I shouldn’t do it because I am a man and things like this shouldn’t faze me.
To be honest, spiders don’t really freak me out. BUT, in the context of being in a dark, confined space and feeling the creepy crawlies on the back of your neck or by your ear, well, that is just going to get a reaction most guys aren’t proud of.
Please, accept by sincerest apologies for oppressing you by appropriating your screams.
I’ll do better.
