4. Define "squabbling"...

Do we have time to DEFEND ourselves against the attacks from within? I don't consider that to be "squabbling" ... do you?

Some here have argued that we should we just ignore it and turn-the-other-cheek (other-cheek, other-cheek, other-cheek, other-cheek) and set a good example, and pretend that everything is okay, and normalize the threats and insults and give-in, and never challenge or push-back against those who think it's okay to bargain-away women's rights... who think that women's rights are negotiable.

These are the ones who suggest that we remaining silent... lower our eyes... and try to be more affable. I'm hear to tell anyone that as long as the ATTACKS and THREATS continue (from within or without) I'll be pushing back. Otherwise, what are we fighting for anyway?

So, what's the plan to get THOSE divisive individuals on board the Unity Train? I won't lower my eyes any more.

Then don't attempt to placate white males at the expense of women and minorities. Simple. LexVegas Apr 2017 #1
