Constance…here it is again: an attitude, a threat…and the woman blamed simply for being.
Read the link, and digest the threat, made by a man…and then consider the response made. Of course, in the name of safety, of not taking chances…right? Which is implicitly also saying that if the woman did not desire the free expression of her thoughts in a venue that had solicited her input, then none of this would have happened.
Frankly, it sticks in my craw and is not something I am swallowing or buying. And this is my position regardless of how easy or difficult my own journey is right now. Some things are never okay…no matter who says them, no matter why they are said.
I have not caused anyone to do anything simply by anything I say, do, or am…and neither does any other woman. Whoever it is that says something, does something or is something is responsible for the things they said, did, or chose.
Wisdom is key, yes. Discretion to be desired above gold…but this feminist lecturer did not cause this situation…the poor, deluded, sick bully who wrote what he wrote absolutely did.
Charissa Grace, resolute and clear minded…
thinking of justice…praying for mercy, in me and for me…and finding it so difficult to even know what humility is, let alone walking in it…
…I have come too far to be chased back to shame and silence.
