All in the Family: Is Blood Thicker Than Politics?
To Jessica Valenti, thanks for this piece. It made me cry—at the end, the letter to the son from the father. Personally, I would never abandon my close blood relatives (mother father, sister, brother, offspring), but I would never give in and provide their aberrant views any legitimacy—nor would I waste the rest of my life trying to enlighten them after several tries. I would simply do my best to “agree to disagree.” Anyway, thanks for the piece and for all the other work you do to advance “our” cause.
