This isn’t the blog post I expected to write today — I have a few topics I’ve been meaning to get to, including taking better care of my health and another take on doing what you love.
But I couldn’t look away from the powerful #YesAllWomen conversation on Twitter this weekend.
Yet another act of mass violence in California, this time a twisted young man who promised revenge on the women who rejected him, led to this outpouring of women’s experiences with violence and sexism. It was like an online support group meets furious protest march, even as the hostile reaction and criticism flew.
Case in point: I tweeted one observation of my own and almost immediately had a stranger tweet back with a criticism of my looks. Thanks for helping prove my point, jerk.
