Perhaps we all have days like this, I don’t know. But I’m feeling weary. Wondering what the hell another article will do. Or another presentation. Or another book. Or another convention. Wondering what difference even another class session will make.
Is it too much to ask that people treat one another with basic respect and dignity? I don’t understand how we’ve gotten here, to this horrible place where racism, classism, sexism, heterosexism, and every other -ism is so rampant, so hurtful, so damaging.
