Gracefully sharing truth and reality

Gratitude to you for you pushing against the repulsive belief that men have the right to intrude on women's sports and domains. As a mother, grandmother, and aunt, the prospect of their future in such a society concerns me greatly. Defending our right to privacy was not something I anticipated but I am here for it. Thank you.

Looking so hard for persecution as the most catered to & protected demographic in America is a full time sport for this host.
