41: everything you knew, everything you’ve ever done

I used to work in a library system where I walked past a women’s health center to get from one branch to another. One day a girl came out of the clinic in tears from whatever she’d been through and some middle-aged dude with a dead fetus sign started screaming in her face and she couldn’t do anything but flinch and cry more. I ran up between the two of them and yelled at him until he put his sign down and backed the fuck off. I’ve never done anything like that before or since. The girl’s mom came out of the car and asked me if I needed a ride out of the scene and I took them up on it.

I wouldn’t be here today if it weren’t for reproductive rights. Today, I live a feminist life. Here is a mix for all of us who choose to, for all of us who need solidarity and righteous anger right now.
