I’ve been husband-shamed by a Twitter troll and I’m having a whole lot of feelings about it.
For the record, I do have a husband.
But the Twitter troll who thought I didn’t due to my use of a photo of just me and my children assumed I didn’t, and she thought it was the perfect insult to point out that I clearly don’t have a husband because I am anti-men.
And if I have had a husband in the past, she obviously thought he had’t stuck around.
Here is the photo she altered to illustrate her point.
I laughed when I first saw it, then I felt a little annoyed.
Argue with me about my opinion, disagree with me about what I say, but there's no need to get personal. My writing is my work and at the end of the day, I'm just doing my job.
Then I wanted to defend myself.
I DO have a husband. He took this photo. So not only did this "man-hater" get a husband, she kept him as well!
But then, I became annoyed with myself.
Why am I defending this? Who cares if I have a husband or not.
Because whether or not a woman has or doesn't have a husband doesn't mean anything and more importantly, whether or not a woman has or doesn't have a husband doesn't increase or decrease her worth.
And that's when I became really upset.
