I thought brooding in this clime just happened to everyone who set foot in Europe

They keep telling me that my interests are very "manly"-- walking, wearing pants, not liking to clean, hating high heels. But I feel no need to call myself a man. Hmm. Could be because I'm mentally healthy and I'm not being exploited by a cult? And I'm just a human with diverse likes and dislikes. Wow. So deep.

In the 19th century, you couldn't throw a rock on a gloomy, windswept landscape without hitting a brooding literary heroine.

Yes but they were all secret men.

Well, this explains why men think a woman traveling alone wants to be pestered endlessly and sexually harassed. Apparently, wanting to be left the fuck alone in a public space is only a male thing.

Welcome to the age of Covid, baby! Taking long, lonely walks is essentially everyone's thing all the time now.

“And brooding” just makes her sound like a sulky teenager. Not impressed.

Glad people are pointing out that women like to walk alone, only it's not safe for us! And that is a photo of a young WOMAN, so obviously.
