Essay: “He Said, She Said”

The popular book site Shelf Pleasure published an essay I wrote about the misplaced “courtesy” of certain old-school Southern men—in which they “ma’am” us and open doors for us, but fail to listen to a single word we say.

Mansplaining Southern men: I’d rather skip the ma’ams and be respected, if it’s all the same. And in this situation, it’s a case of courtesy over respect that led to a great deal of water flowing into my kitchen, as you’ll see.

Thank you, Shelf Pleasure!
