Perhaps There's Hope

I have just recently found

I have just recently found your blog and I quite enjoy it. This post resonates strongly with me - I often find myself in similar situations, weighing the pros and cons of speaking up. I have never considered how my actions, even seemingly small inconsequential ones, may impact situations such as these. Thank you for sharing this incident so we can all learn from it.

I also think it's important for each of us to remember not to label or pigeonhole anyone - I know this is something I struggle with. I don't look like a feminist or an activist - I'm sure many people would be surprised to hear me described as either - but I am. Perhaps I too have surprised people in bars, and they have reconsidered what they thought they knew - I can only hope ;)

Welcome, Anon! I'm glad it

Welcome, Anon!

I'm glad it resonates with you. It's a hard thing not to do - pigeonhole and label people - but I think it's good to allow yourself to be surprised, for sure.
