Finding and Losing Identity Politics, Part 3
That was raw to read. I've been on the wrong end of people carrying these tropes, especially what you say about trying to write a book.
Another bang-on-point instalment. You’re an inspiration and I’ll leave a better comment after more thought. Thanks so much for this!
"I held no coherent values—I had one set of rules for Bad people and another set for Good people, as determined by gossip and emotional impulsivity."
This is dead-on. The wokeists, social-justice set, whatever you call them, adhere to no consistent, underlying moral principles. They have a series of sympathies, and may the gods help you when that sympathy ends.
Thank you for this 🧡
Really appreciated this, especially the paragraph where you highlighted the contradictions that arose when you tried to create. Thank you!
I think it would be lovely to gather folks who have made their various exits together to talk about where they all landed and what possibilities have emerged in their many iterative leavings. What a gift to share those stories and to bear witness to one-another's humanness.
