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.
