I read an article the other day about how a mom was accosted for breastfeeding in her OBGYN’s office.
She said, “I’m not militant,” like militant is a bad word.
You have to be militant against the forces of the world that promote, rationalize or deny systemic injustice with military force.
Thanks for this. My sister keeps telling me I’m being “too senstive” when I talk about my feminist-informed beliefs. Yes, I see the irony. Maybe it’s because, born a man, I was imbued a sense of belief that my actions and beliefs have a consequence because I can effect change in the world around me. She’s given up caring because of all the reasons we are angry.
