Review: 2020.050 (A Word for Authors)

Pro: The nameless narrator describes how Victoire, a child of rape, learns fighting so she can take the fight back to the “wolves,” the source of the men who keep attacking, but the consequences of that attempt are terrible.

There’s obviously a deeper message about men who won’t leave lesbians alone.

Con: The message here is too on-the-nose: women are good, men are bad, kill them all.
