Jennifer Brown, your sincerity is truly refreshing. So few on the left are willing to even broach a subject that you have embraced whole-heartedly.
It is a critical problem of the left that feelings are placed above facts, that being ‘nice’ is considered more important than being truthful. It is absolutely, 100% more important to be right than to be nice. Many dangerous and harmful trends have emerged and begun to thrive because too many people have become afraid of speaking the truth because of whom they may offend.
Yet, rarely are leftists so candid about their preference for emotions over logic. You have my respect for breaking the mold.
