Thank you for a great response Pablo. Its true — we all have different experiences at the hands of The Mainstream. And it varies on where you live as well. As an Old White Woman in The South — I am more respected by White Men than my younger sisters. No one wants to piss off “Momma” apparently.
However, it’s been interesting to note — I have been made to feel “Other” by LGBTQ Women, Fat Women, Christian Women, Young Women — Not just Men.
Society feeds us a narrative of Us vs. Them in every way shape and form we can be divided. It. Must. Stop.
The Mainstream is the only one who wins when stay divided over trivialities. They are a minority. Just as they were when Marie Antoinette lost her head over some cake.
If we don’t sort it out and settle our ‘Otherness’ — The Mainstream will destroy our children’s and grandchildren’s future.
I find that is one thing most women — of any age/race/size/orientation/religion will go to war for — their kids.
Egos have gotten us into this mess. Love has to lead us out of it. ❤
