My political views these days are “women first”. No more, no less. I’ve given up on political parties and large, corporatized advocacy groups in favor of looking at how things affect women on an issue-by-issue basis, whether the specific women who are affected includes me or not. If it puts the rights or well-being of any group of women in jeopardy, I’m against it.

This is a lot easier to do if you focus on voting in local elections and only give to charitable organizations engaged in direct action. I’d so much rather give $100 to a Women’s shelter or contribute to abortion access funds than waste it on sellouts like planned parenthood.
