I found Pant Suite Nation to be precious and self-congratulatory. I’m a white, senior (70) woman who felt the tone and make-up of the group was simply too cute and of little substance. I’m not sure it is a racial issue but more a class issue. There is a vast, untapped source of kindness in middle-class white women who squander their power on things like scrapbooking and book clubs where the book is rarely mentioned. Thinking about others and developing empathy is key to engaging people, but there is too much fear of being different and of “the other”.
