It’s interesting how the coughing first made you think of your father and then you experienced a generalized anger toward men. Also, the external sensory information triggered your internal conflict. Women do have a lot to be angry about, and you’re right, we’ve been trained to minimize ourselves. I like how instead of blaming men and leaving it at that, your angry led you to feeling more empowered.
