This is natch why I tagged you, NC. BTW last week while I was isn the hospital with two infected kidneys, a stone blocking the urethra, unable to pass or pee, doped up on major morphine, some cluck decided to attack me for the word "chick" which I had dared to use in a curated article. Probably not a good time for me to have a computer in my lap, but it was. While I take responsibility for my response, which I have since rewritten (for good reason), it was another White Warrior's attack on me for that which finally led me to this article. I find it funny and sad at the same time, after decades and decades of putting my heart and soul into supporting women. I too was stupid, self-righteous and young, still am, well, not YOUNG but still at times stupid and self righteous. Most particularly with infected kidneys, a blocked kidney stone, and more than my fair share of morphine. The difference is that I can see the humour in it.
