As a man who honestly likes women, and values the other half of the human race, I am horrified by what one of my gender did to you.
You had every excuse to react to me as a naïve man walking into your battlefield. I’m sorry if I caused you more grief, in your time of trial. I’m sorry that what I said caused you more pain: that was not my intent.
Your apology was not expected (it was my fault) but is accepted gratefully.
To the rest of you: Give this girl a break, why don’t you?
And Nina, also remember to cut yourself a break: eat, survive, and prosper in life: that is your victory! Survive what life throws at you, and be the best you can be: I have an idea that your best will be very good.
