We label everything in life to know where we have commonalities with others. All too often though it just polarizes the people with seemingly opposite labels. Why is human the most common label for us and yet we ignore it, trample on it, and avoid. Preferring narrower labels that cause more friction and less willingness to deal with the human behind the narrow ideas?
I am a human writing a feminist blog. Not because I hate men. I write because I see a group that has been labeled and treated as less than human. So I focus my attention there trying to help lift woman to full human status.
Not toys to be raped and left. Not collateral damage in wars. Not workers stuck under a glass ceiling.
With their own brilliance. With their own rights. With their own light in the world.
