Woman Getting All Defensive About Inherent Worth And Selfhood

Made me laugh! worth reading to see things from the other side of the street.
Woman Getting All Defensive About Inherent Worth And Selfhood: "“It’s like I can’t say a single cruel and demeaning thing without her getting touchy about her value as a human being,” said boyfriend Brad Larsen, adding that Resper gets “totally bent out of shape” every time he tries to completely discount what she wants to do with her life or clearly demonstrates that his needs are always going to be more important than hers. “Jesus, she’s so thin-skinned about constantly being told to be something she’s not.
