I have to say my intent has never been to 'pee anyone off' simply by standing up for myself and for those who are feared of daring say anything because of their sexuality or gender.
You know the saying "The only thing necessary for the triumph of evil is for good men to do nothing", by Edmund Burke? Well it applies for women too. When good men stand up for my rights I need not feel so silenced and almost owe it to them, and those unable to defend themselves, to speak up.
I still get scared and I know fear of assault every day of my life but somehow my need to have a life is greater than the fear and, thankfully, to the "good men" (and women) I am extremely grateful :)
