Wayne Duckworth, this is a beautiful, dark, disturbing piece. It’s also a very critical peek into how toxic traditional masculinity can be if roles and expectations are overturned or disturbed.

I didn’t love reading your story. It was a little too horrifying to use the word “love” so lightly. But I very much enjoyed reading it, and I’m glad I did.
