Lindz,

I am about to head out to clear the snow off my driveway and some neighbor’s, but wanted to respond.
Consider: women are not allowed to feel or express rage. That’s a HUGE topic, but please just think about all the implications.
And: if we do, we are considered dangerous, hysterical (look up the etiology of that work, you’ll get it right away)

The world fears, punishes, demeans, damages, drugs and destroys angry women. Women who have damned good reason to be angry, like those of us who have been raped, especially more than once (my hand is up). We end up taking that anger out on our bodies.

Gotta work. Chew on that for a while, see if it doesn’t give you food for thought.
