years of bias building

“But I only ..” she was cut off again.
“Vulgar !! that’s the word. you hear me !!”
And this went on till she started to cry hard and promised not to ride again. Her brother never even tried to learn and she actually rode it. But she knew she would not get any praise for that.
The bicycle was anyway sold next day.
