    • You know...very surprising.

      Everyone's been so nice. Actually, I'm sort of concerned. Because I think it's good for something to be controversial. I think it's good for people to have an argument with you. I want people to question themselves, and feel something uncomfortable in response. I mean to be provocative, so I'm never surprised when people have a difficult time with things I write. So it's been interesting that everyone has been very positive about this, and I was trying to figure out why that is.

      I think there's a few things. It is just an amazing story. There's no getting away from that.

      My response to the situation is I'm surprisingly not angry about it. I didn't write this five minutes after it happened. I've had some time to work it out. It's not a negative response to a really difficult situation. There was somebody on Twitter who said that it was about "feminism and forgiveness" - and I think that's right.

      And I think that might be the thing that people like. We're living in very angry times. And it isn't an angry piece of writing.
