It's Sunday & if you're not in church, you have time. If you're IN church, you DEFINITELY have time. ;)
p.s. Women can claim credit for things they do & that's a-ok!

The real "sin" was disobedience & audacity to speak the truth, not apostasy.
Don't ghost me, while talking about something that happened only to me.
That was her choice.
She wanted to have cake & eat it, too.
That was a MAJOR weakness of @OrdainLDSWomen
Patriarchy runs deep.
(And, if we've learned ANYTHING in Mormonism, it's how to recruit!!!!)
But, I knew it was. So did other action-oriented organizers, but eventually we were all were driven out/ or driven bonkers by others who wanted nothing more than endless @SunstoneMag panels (still the modus operandi, apparently)
There is something beautiful & transformative about standing face-to-face with your oppressor & shouting (or, in our case: politely stating in primary voice) NO!
But, I think it says that we need to learn to do things differently. I think we can. ... I hope we can (?)
Is the only universal thing in movements, particularly women's movements, in-fighting?
Clawing for resources & attention?
Wasting time & energy fighting each other instead of fighting the patriarchy?
I hope we can move beyond these grudges... not like men... not the cliché "punch each other & shake hands" but like strong, capable women.
But, I'll be damned (to Outer Darkness!) if I don't stand up for myself & not let this rubbish slide.
All movements have leaders. Even the ones that try not to.
