Thank you. It's so nice to feel some hope regarding the largest group of upholders of the status quo patriarchy, rather than rage and intermittent proto-hate. I feel hope that if this status quo makes them miserable, too, maybe if they could be convinced of a better way--that justice, equity, and happiness need not be exclusive and work best when they AREN'T exclusive--the tide might change.

Won't be easy, but I just need POSSIBLE.

I didn't realize just how much I needed that, and the relief of cautious--clear-eyed--hope. Not until tears started running down my face while reading this article and the responses. Thank you so much. I'll be getting your latest book tomorrow and I look forward to it.
