Why are women so deeply upset about Britney Spears testimony: We all know we are only ever ONE degree from any single element of her story happening to us, at any time.

Who has been called crazy for being upset?

Who has been called unstable because you cried?

Who has known if you were able to win one small battle, there would be consequences later.

Who has had a doctor decide reproductive choices for you — such as you can’t get your tubes tied in case you change your mind/or your future husband wants kids

… and the list goes on and on.

I’m not sure how many men understand how deeply scary this is to hear, to watch, to learn about. It’s scary. It has been most of us, in one form or another, at one time or another.

And it is legal.
