I keep seeing male Medium writers complaining that Medium is prioritizing personal stories. Their angle is to complain that Medium is prioritizing women, but your piece proves (not that we should need proof) people of any gender can write moving personal stories. I think we all benefit from vulnerability and truth from a variety of voices!

P.S. Thanks for your supportive comments on my essay!
