Powerfully moving. This touched me deeply.

What you describe, I know it's too much to hope for in my lifetime on a cultural level. But maybe here and there, as healthy friendships grow and equal partnerships, the weight will lift a bit from all our backs.

This is beautiful. Thank you so much for writing it.
