I Believe… [Everyone Has Some Advantage]
…that being persuasive isn’t about being nice to people but about treating everyone you’d like to convince with the same respect you’d want for yourself. It also requires much more thought and creativity than calling someone a Nazi or a racist.
…that sometimes the best parts of a successful marriage look incredibly mundane to the outside eye.
…that with the lens of intersectionality as it now stands, the term “privilege” has been rendered meaningless.
…that no man in his fifties or sixties has any interest at all whatsoever in your discussion of chakras and numerology when sitting in a co-ed steam room. He’s listening and asking questions about your inane nonsense because he’s trying to bag you. [Based upon an eavesdropped conversation between a 23-year old woman and a saggy old dude at the gym…]
…that an apology demanded has little value.
