It doesn’t much matter what line of argument you take as a woman. If you venture into traditional male territory, the abuse comes anyway. It’s not what you say that prompts it—it’s the fact that you are saying it.

When the time comes
and my body can no longer handle my mind,
let me go.
Let my body finally reunite with the stars where it belongs,
and when our loved ones asked what happened to me,
remind them that some people spend their entire lives fighting with themselves.
Remind them that not all wars make headlines.
