I went to the Women’s March in Chicago on Saturday. It was inspiring. Women’s rights are being threatened by the current US President and his administration (and when I say women, I include trans women and women of color, because I have not forgotten your existences and you are my fellow women too), and I was glad to know that there are so many people out there who are willing to make it clear that the current administration’s policies are wrong. I was excited by all of the people and messages that I saw. And I have at least two friends who, after witnessing the march, are inspired to start taking more political actions after having been politically inactive for years.
I’m not going to stop fighting to protect my body and my rights as a human being. And I’ll keep fighting for your body and your rights as a human being, whether or not we agree on all issues.
I hope all of you out there stay safe and continue to practice love and compassion, both for yourself and for others.
