I posted this in the comments thread at Terribleminds today. The whole thing deserves a signal boost.

I hate to draw the dirty word comparison here, but another poster already made mention. It’s a shame the word itself carries so much of a burden, but as Chuck also pointed out, that’s part of the deal and its a package. The whole cake-apple needs an eatin’.

The voice in this post resonates with me. I’ve never really been any kind of activist. I know where my opinions have been, and if it came to a vote I could express accordingly. Now I have a wife and a daughter and decades ahead of me trying to ensure they get a fair shake every time. Holy crap.
