Dare to be

When I dare to be powerful, to use my strength in the service of my vision, then it becomes less and less important whether I am afraid.

— Audre Lorde

Today, I am raging against the patriarchy and no, I don’t care what you think of me. 

Little things like the woman who handled the paperwork for my graduation photos asking, knowing nothing about me but my name and gender, if I was “going into marketing.”

Bigger things like This American Life publishing an entire “funny” podcast days before the election about how unlikable and bad at computers (!?) Hillary Clinton is. (I listened to it on my run this morning thinking it would cheer me up but I ended up crying instead.)

And millions of more truly blatant and rage-inducing things.

But I’m not going to shut up about it. Because these things matter. They all matter. 

And if you think I’m overreacting, you have some learning to do. Happy to chat anytime.
