or at all

We spend too much time teaching girls to worry about what boys think of them. But the reverse is not the case. We don’t teach boys to care about being likable. We spend too much time telling girls that they cannot be angry or aggressive or tough, which is bad enough, but then we turn around and either praise or excuse men for the same reasons. All over the world, there are so many magazine articles and books telling women what to do, how to be and not to be, in order to attract or please men. There are far fewer guides for men about pleasing women.

Last week the door to our apartment building got stuck shut. No amount of pulling or pushing or running and kicking it could get it open, which meant the only way in or out was from the bar downstairs, through the kitchen in the back squeezing past the stove and then through a door that was also almost stuck shut from grease. A neighbor called a locksmith, and he finally showed up last Wednesday evening (he actually said when he buzzed on the intercom “hello it’s the locksmith can you let me in?” and I said “well, NO”). I held the stepladder for him as he tried to pry the door open with a crowbar, but he eventually had to call for a colleague (named Teddy, I wish I knew more people called Teddy) and between the two of the them they managed to break the door open. It was pretty busted, and now of course, ha ha! you couldn’t close it. “Just be aware of any strange people coming or going,” the locksmith not called Teddy said.

He was a very friendly guy, we were chatting while waiting for Teddy to show up, and he asked me where I’m from. Texas! I told him, and he said ah, you’re fleeing Trump?

I moved to France in September 2000, and Bush’s election was met here with incomprehension and hostility, which really only grew with time. Now it’s more pity, or really commiseration. We’re less than 100 days away.
