I could, but I won't, highlight the whole thing.

This just superbly underscores the number of genuinely unpleasant, mindless, offensive and ridiculous exchanges I have had with self-appointed (young, white, ignorant, female, largely) self-appointed Justice Warriors.

I am as full of bias and bullshit as the next person but at least I am porous, which makes me willing to learn, challenge, and let go of my shit. That might make me useful. Hope it does. But folks who have leapt on the anti-racism and allyship bandwagon because it's a thing, and you can consult in it, and the wave is rising...nope. Don't get me started.

Excellent piece, Anastasia.
