This, of course, is fundamentally a s*xist arrangement.” You may want to be careful. The way in which you fall asleep with your partner could be setting equality back hundreds of years. It is no surprise that the internet was collectively outraged and that this piece of writing earned it's name as the most hated thing on the internet for at least five hours.
