Yashar Ali, a political commentator and writer, recently wrote an article called, “A Message to Women From a Man: You Are Not “Crazy”.  This article really helps me put many incidents in my life into perspective.  In response to men belittling women for expressing their disappointment, sadness and anger for disrespectful behavior  by calling them “crazy” he defines as “gaslighting”.  “Gaslighting is a term often used by mental health professionals (I am not one) to describe manipulative behavior used to confuse people into thinking their reactions are so far off base that they’re crazy”
