And a letter in which a kind person says nice things

The writer is referencing my appearance on Byline last night:

“The home and the family is more important than any job that we’re ever going to do.” Who is he to say? He is clearly suggesting that “home” and “family” have some sort of standard, uniform meaning or implication. In our society, it’s going to mean something very different to different people. He’s looking at this through a classic Conservative nuclear-family-gender-pigeonholed framework, which is the PROBLEM and which is why he is absolutely missing the point.

Ugh, that makes me angry. And not in the ill-defined “new age feminist” sort of way. What a joke stereotype.

Well said!
