"“Not all men” also differs from “what about the men?” and other classic derails because it acknowledges that rape, sexism, and misogyny are real issues — just not, you know, real issues that the speaker is involved with in any way. The “not all men” man, at least in some cases, agrees with you and is perfectly willing to talk about how terrible those other guys are, just as soon as we get done establishing that he himself would never be such a cad. It’s infuriating and unhelpful, but in a way it represents a weird kind of progress."

"I rested my head on the terrycloth and closed my eyes. Only on sand like this did I ever feel like I could sleep forever, did I feel like sleep could be a destination. The comfort was limitless and I knew I was mouthing the words - Fantastic, so good, fantastic, so good - but couldn’t help it. The sun had half my face, one eye, a shoulder. It pressed into me, nudging with it’s forefingers, into my neck, my crown, the side of my calf. - Fantastic. Fantastic, I thought.
Then thought:
You seem so content.
Yes.
Why? There are reasons why this is incongruous.
I know.
But what were they again?
I don’t know.
You do.
Why are we doing this? Why are we trying to remember why this comfort is no longer possible?
Wait a second. I remember -"

"The word ‘relentless’ pops into his mind. That is what she is: relentless. And yet she has done nothing. She is sitting here, at the table across from him, not complaining, not berating him. She is compliant, but the fervor still sparks in her eyes. Back at Carnaval, she looked like Joan of Arc. Like a zealot: someone who saw visions. Slowly, right in from of him, she is transforming back into his wife, just a woman who has suffered one too many losses and is trying too outrun pain…
… Now, though, he just wants a normal dinner companion, not a visionary. But how can he expect her to turn her fervor on and off like a light switch when it suits him? She is racing for a finish line, and sometimes the romance of it blinds him, and other times he simply cannot keep pace."

Gina Frangello, “A Life In Men”, pg 195


yet another look at how we are asked to not be zealots and wives in one, to not switch back and forth, to not let the world affect our insides.
oh you, you know you cannot make us seemless.
but you wish you could,
you wish you could.
until you leave that wish behind,
there will always be too much change,
too much advancement ever forward in this body
to make us yours forever.
