WOW, what an incredible person. I’m so proud of her example and her tenacity. Absolute respect, my hat goes off to her. I hope she thrives in all she sets her heart to do. We need more Women like her.

One small thing I would raise for consideration is, this highlighted sentence: “The ideas and memes that dominate skew even further toward a white male perspective.”

I get what they’re trying to say, however, as a non-American, this reeks of Amerocentrism. It comes from American cultural bias and privilege, highlighting the bias of America generally against the rest of the world. “There’s ‘Merica, and a few barbarian tribes on the periphery”.

Sure, say “bigoted male perspective” however, making a racial slur stoops to the same low bar her tormentors are at. Males, yes — without a doubt, they are males — however, creating a conspiracy around a gender of a certain skin colour? How hypocritical.

‘White male’ covers a multitude of cultures all over the world, in Europe, Asia, speaking hundreds of different languages. There are blue-eyed pale-skinned Chinese, Mongols, Nepalese, Indians, and other Asians — I know, because I’ve ridden motorbikes through those continents and seen them.

I’d hope in future a more accurate denominator of a problem demographic can be arrived at, instead of demonising by skin colour.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
