At my wife’s behest, I attended the January, 2017, Portland Women’s Day March. I haven’t done anything like that since college.
The attendees marched quite peaceful, though with plenty of enthusiasm. Some speculated that the march remained peaceful because my gender was in the minority–this march was composed principally of women (and children). I have to agree, adding more testosterone to the mix may have yielded a different mood and outcome. In any event, it was great experience that gave me a lot to think about.
