25. So do I but their silence doesn't mean indifference

It's really up to us to fight this. They will support us. One of the things women made men understand during the Feminist movement was that we could do our own fighting. We weren't weak minded pretty little things who needed a man to do our fighting.

They learned that lesson. I know my son did. He has no problem watching me fight the war of ideas and justice and seeing me win, but would definitely step in if some man tried to get physical with me or started calling me names. My son has no problem with strong women. He even thinks it's natural.
