    it is going to take more than tonight to read your entire diary.

    If you catch me where my unconscious racism shows, please, please, please call me on it. I do know that it is not your responsibility to educate me but knowing I've been a jerk will point me to finding out how to not be a jerk.

    BTW, I no longer educate men who ask - I just point them to reading they can discover on the internet. So I understand from that point of view.

    That said, back in the day I was the only TA who allowed men in her WS discussion groups. That lasted a whole 3 weeks. Men back then, well, let's call them terribly unenlightened, and they fought tooth and nail against it. I still don't understand why they enrolled in a class they hated.

    I will take any woman's analysis of feminism over any man's. Anytime, yes, even today. A woman is far more likely to know what she's talking about.

    I have been out of feminist organizations for a while now, and so I'm not familiar with the sites you mentioned and never heard of this creep.

    I will read and reread your diary in the morning. Inexorably I am being drawn back into active struggle. How else to fight the idiots who want to put all women back into 1750.
