I've spent some time in comments bickering over finer points in the law when it relates to women, trying to maintain a position of logic to seek clarity.
And after today's SCOTUS decision, I realize how completely and utterly wrong I was, and how much pain I either caused or had the potential to cause by treating inequality issues with such an aloof, intellectual attitude.
See, if people like me care more about the purity of the argument than the effect on people that said arguments are actually affecting, we own this decision as much as any winger.
I, and people like me, let it be an argument about ideals rather than real human problems.
I, and people like me, encouraged the sort of discussion that makes it even semi-reasonable in a logical manner that freedom can be used as an argument to oppress humans.
I am terribly sorry for being so thick-headed that I did not getting it sooner.
I'm even sorrier that I've either caused people pain or made arguments that had the ability to cause people pain in regards to matters of equality.
#YesAllWomen, because if not, when the powers that be are done with them, it will be the men next.
