  •  How did this happen? (4.00)
    Well, you know the expression, "they just don't get it."  I think it is true that Alito is incapable of appreciating the humanity of people unlike himself.  And lots of people awfully like him are passing judgment on him and they don't see that he doesn't get it.  Most of them don't get it. And they don't want to change or to be bothered.  It's not worth it to them.

    I've been working for equal rights for women for several years and it's very hard to make any changes in people.  I feel like giving up because it just hurts too much to be losing time and time again.

    If I were willing to try to bring my organization to a halt, maybe something would happen.  I've done a lot that's close to that.
