Response to Behind the Aegis (Original post)

5. This paragraph jumped out at me...

snip--"I believe in this. I believe if oppressed communities—people of color, Jews, Muslims, LGBTQ folk, immigrants and refugees—could set aside their differences and come together, we would have the upper hand in politics and take down a racist executive administration. But it seems we have not found that common ground—at least, not yet."

And while he does speak of the 2017 Dyke March in Chicago, I did not see any mention of his lesbian & bi sisters in follow up meetings by the members of that specifically involved community. He does speak of Diane Von Furstenberg family's survival from the Holocaust.

I will note in his above paragraph, he does not mention women. That strikes me as a major blindness here in his analysis.

>>>>I think he has discovered the Intersectionality of the human being. And I'll be interested in seeing if his thoughts expand on this as time passes.

Thanks for sharing this.
