“As a journalist and writer, occasionally, I tell my own stories. Sometimes they are funny and joyful. However, more often than not, they’re wrenchingly sad, reflecting on some of the hardest points of my life. I may even twist them into having punchlines to hide the gravity of my pain and make it more ‘digestible’ to those reading or watching. But how does that make me feel?
I, like Gadsby, am tired of my negative experiences being purely used as a temporary form of entertainment.”
