Spring is the time to step out

Yesterday on the begging channel I heard a pundit, my goodness we have so many of them and mostly they are men, say the Women's March was not focused enough, that it needed to be about one thing. And I immediately realized that this was a very patriarchal way of looking at things, a linear, one thing at a time, silo mentality.

What I know women bring to the thought process is an ability to hold more than one thing important. To hold a variety of just causes and support each other in them. The ability to come together and work together for all of the things that are important to our world, even when they do not directly affect us.

I see this as a less selfish way of being in the world. A way to reach our hands across the divides that society tries to make. Women have an innate ability to perceive a mutuality of causes. This ability is beneficial to our society and our world.

This ability also makes us harder to fight, because you cannot attack one thing and make it wrong. So I see why some people would like us to individuate each issue, but I personally do not think that will make us stronger.

I think we need to see our current problems from a more natural and empathic perspective. That all of the issues are part of one big cultural miasma of patriarchy. A miasma that has got us to this time, one that is way outdated. And we need to realize that we are done with that.

We can stand together support all of the issues including: immigration, education, black lives matter, native american rights, wildlife, our public lands, womens equality, womens healthcare, veterans care, LGBTQ equality, religious freedom, environmental sustainability, anti-pollution, pro-medicare, the right to choose for ourselves, peace on Earth and so many other things. Because we can hold the whole picture in our hearts and our minds.

We are smart enough, brave enough and caring enough to say:
Now is the time
This is the place
We will not give up on our rights for anyone.
