Last year I was profoundly hurt to hear a friend declare their intent to avoid conversing with their relatives about their continued support of an administration which is actively seeking to harm brown people.

Every time you defend a guy who's abusive, whether it's someone you know or a pubic figure. EVERY TIME YOU ARE SILENT.
It's a kick in the gut to women.
