But it’s not JUST a war on women. It’s on everyone who isn’t overflowing with entitlements, and it’s largely being waged by white men, who seek to perpetuate male and white supremacy.

You are either actively on the side of the oppressed, or the oppressor. And if you’re silent, you’re with the oppressor.

Let’s up our game for justice and dignity:

“Last night, as the news swarmed online, a friend texted me: ‘There’s a war out there against us.’

“I think she’s right. I think there is a war. I think we’ve been fighting it for some time. I think it’s reached a breaking point.

“This war is not about men and women. This war is about those who believe people of all races, cultures, sexes, genders, classes, and religions deserve kindness and respect, and those who don’t. We have to speak out, for ourselves and for each other.”

One thought on “The War on Women…Which Side Are You On?”

  1. No, it isn’t just a war on women, but women seem to bear an inordinate share of the burden of moving society to a place of acceptance, dialogue and equality, and have done so for pretty much the whole of what passes for human civilization. Women are joined in this burden by people of colour, of religious (spiritual, intellectual) dissent and those whose sexual orientation doesn’t fit the normative ideal. Sadly, the more of these conditions a person can stack, the more likely the consequences are to be dire. Enlisting those “good” people who don’t like to speak up is a major challenge, but a necessary step to surmounting the destructive inertia of our present course.
