Your response has confused me.

In regards to the first point: yes, they’re all white. I asked for stories to be sent to me, and these are the ones that came in.

If you go to the Instagram account, your can plainly see there are women of all races there.

I will make another plea for stories, emphasizing the need for WOC representation.

What stumps me, though, if you say “who look like me.” when I click on your author profile, I see a picture of a white blonde.

The second part of your email is some confusing rant about social media. I cannot discern the point.

The third part of your email is some assumption about lived experience as a man — I’m gathering you have the notion that we must deny this lived experience? In not sure what drives that. I don’t deny my lived experience.

The fourth point is about us never being too late, if I understand correctly. Yes, that was precisely the point of my article. It’s never too late.
