More Important Things

I’d been thinking of the regime with its current racism, misogyny, transphobia, homophobia, ableist, et al beliefs that are seeking to cleanse and purge as suffocating. Pressure cooking – or boiling – fits, too. It has been nice to find a community that is really trying to be of inclusive solidarity. Pretty beautiful to me.

The backlash, however, has been visceral. Attacking. Genuinely intended to do all manner of harm.

It’s put me into a very, very sour mood, and today I’m empathizing with every taciturn, disengaged learner that I’ve ever had. That said, this conference is already useful.
