Hi Rand

I respect your response.

There are lots of different feminists. Maybe you’ve read some of the ones which disagree with you?

The thing about me is never to recommend just blaming: but also acknowledging the blame that is out there.

If all I did was blame the people who hurt me, I’d never be where I am — and I’m a straight, cis-gendered, white dude.

The deck is stacked against women and people of color and people whose sexuality is not vanilla.

I don’t recommend all they do is blame, but we’re not going to figure out how to fix injustice if we never discuss it.

That doesn’t mean everyone doesn’t need to take care of himself or herself — we do — but we also need to recognize injustice to fix it.

That can be a messy conversation.

Thanks for being part of it.
