Sane, Helpful, Progressive? The Wapo Oped
Today, a Professor Victoria Bissell Brown, 70 yrs old and married for 50 Years was accepted to the editorial page of Wapo.
I yelled at my husband last night. Not pick-up-your-socks yell. Not how-could-you-ignore-that-red-light yell. This was real yelling. This was 30 minutes of from-the-gut yelling. Triggered by a small, thoughtless, dismissive, annoyed, patronizing comment. Really small. A micro-wave that triggered a hurricane.
I announced that I hate all men and wish all men were dead.
I do not know what to make of this (with the exception of my title choice).
If you read, also look at the comments.
What was Wapo thinking? What was their purpose? Who is this supposed to help and how?

UPDATE: For those thinking I am attempting to start a flame war, they are incorrect. I am asking for your thoughtful opinions as to what Wapo's intent and purpose was in publishing this Oped.
