Make This Go Viral

Not about me. This is about the message.

In case you might have missed it (and I did, which is why I’m sharing this) I would like to put this bee in your bonnet.

Oh, and by the way, I missed it because I was here in Africa doing something epic, which, to my point, offends every single sensibility that is addressed in this quick film.

If you are a female writer on Medium, if you care about women, if you have girl children or women in your life about whom you give a flying shit, and that would likely be most of us, please read/watch this. Won’t take long. I write about this all the time but know when to shut up and let a more succinct voice say it better:

Medium peep Elle Beau ❇︎ forwarded this to me. Please pass it on.

I am tired of the fucking madness. And I am sick and tired of being reminded that who I am isn’t enough.

YES. IT. IS. If my life and how I choose to live it, the way I look and how I walk it, the way I write and how I say offend you,

Go SPIT, Ladies and Gentlemen of the Self-Appointed Jury.

Go. Fucking. SPIT.

Now if you don’t mind, and I don’t give a shit if you do, I’m going to take my unconventional, nonconforming, non-complacent aging ass out to do a local hike, then head to Mafia island to dive with whale sharks.

Kindly send that video viral, to every single struggling woman you know. With thanks to Elle for giving me the head’s up on stuff I don’t see because I am too busy out doing epic shit to care about being terribly current. But this one’s important.

I am tagging Ann Litts on this one, and Vienna De Vega. You know what to do with it, ladies.
