Excited to have my Mother Whore essay is hit news stands in BUST magazine. Pussy Riot on the cover; Black Lives Matter article; and interviews with bell hooks and Kim Gordon inside--honored to be in the same pages as these feminists.
*My essay has been retitled as "Mother, May I?"
I am not ABLE to march tomorrow, but I am marching on. I am proud of the numbers of activists who will show up and create the mass energy, unity, and presentation of dissent. I will be working behind the scenes, creating community safety systems, self defense classes, and aiding the progress of a more tolerant world--in classrooms, in courtrooms, in the streets, in the home.
The personal is political and the political is my personal responsibility.
I pledge allegiance to the flag of the United States of America, and to the people for which it stands, one nation under the Sun, in diversity and in unity, with liberty and justice for all.
*I was an off site security contact for marchers.
