You’ve shared my videos a few times, this is one about a poem (‘Numb’) you’ve previously published which was trolled quite horrifically. It’s called Unsolicited Advice from a Failed Male Poet. And there was an article put up on the Guardian about it for a bit of background.

That’s really good. And she is too.
Good for her. I will never understand people who take time out of their day to send such bile to other people or those who instantly doubt other people’s stories about sexual assault. Total trolls.
Yea you will never understand trolling or the internet or satire, your like a nun from the 80’s.
Trolling and satire are unrelated things. Also – go easy on nuns – nobody had internet in the 1980s.
People like human had to settle for licking bus windows back in the 80s. A purer time some might say.
This isn’t very good at all, her previously posted poem is actually very good. Can’t really see how the previous poem was horrifically trolled. Except for a few people who said they didn’t like it and we’re instantly accused of misogyny.
If only they had linked to the article so you could read about what happened.
Freudian slip of “we’re” instead of “were”?
