I FOUND IT!!! I happened upon this enlightened article with all of its fantastic embedded links to similarly focused articles in the middle of the night a while back. However, being only half conscious, I did not retain the author or title information.

I was so frustrated when I failed to locate it the next morning.


Thank you for being a champion for the fair treatment of all people and a voice speaking out against xenophobia.

Thank you for acknowledging realities so often denied. The denial of my reality has been the single most damaging action ever taken against me. It is an action I experience, to some degree, every day. And I am far from unique.

Thank you for making yourself heard through a humor found palatable by a demographic that would never hear me.

I had the privilege, as have many, to attend a reading and discussion by and with Rebecca Solnit last year and she was quick to point out how much the Feminism movement benefits from the addition of men. Men who acknowledge the current climate and who are committed to being the change that has to happen so we can all feel safe, and be successful, and thrive, together.

Thank you for being one of those.

The laughter is a huge plus, but I would still read you even if you weren’t hilarious.

I still don’t know what I want to be when I grow up, but I know I want it to be spelled right and punctuated correctly. I guess that’s something.
