Oh how I feel this! My ex husband insisted he was committed to equity and feminism, yet the entire burden of the household fell on me and he literally, I kid you not, rolled his eyes and scoffed any time I said the words “emotional labor.” As our marriage drew to a close, he kept repeating, “I guess I’m not woke enough for you.”
