I did it.

If all the men who have sexually harassed or assaulted or have been complicit in upholding this culture of violence against or violations of women publically wrote "I did it", we might give people a sense of the magnitude of the problem.

I did it.
I did it even when I didn't know I was doing it.

I was raised by conscious parents. My mother was a strong feminist. My adolescent reading included Betty Friedan and Germaine Greer. I still did it. The combination of testosterone, culture and rationalization is shockingly powerful.

It's a very uncomfortable awakening. I've tried to make amends where I could, and used the realization to aid my growth as a human being when I couldn't.

If we won't own our behaviour, nothing will change.

The photographer's nightmare - retinal detachment.

I has it. Luckily in my non-dominant left eye. Had surgery last Thursday. I'll be taking a break for a while.
