Many Ways To Be An Activist
Amanda Verdery Young

Not all, but most, easily 98% of the people who screamed at me when I disagreed with their claim to speak for me by marching in the so-called “Women’s March” were incensed that I did not worship whom they worshipped and in the manner they worshipped. They were horrified that I did not embrace their life choices and pay homage to their efforts. And they were not shy about denigrating and demonizing me for even my silence on the issue. My answer consistently was that they did not speak for me, and that I honor those “who came and suffered before us” so that we may get on with our lives as we saw fit by getting on with my life as I see fit. Thank you for your insight.
