I’m ashamed to admit I’m one of the people identified by Emma Watson in her speech to the United Nations. For a long time I did not understand the meaning of the word feminism. I let myself believe it was a dirty word and publicly declared on many occasions that I was an anti-feminist. I commend my friends, classmates and professors for having patience with me. A couple years ago I realized the error in my ways. I wish I could point to a particular breakthrough but I can’t. Regardless, I now know that feminism is about men and women having access to the same opportunities and being treated fairly. Today I am a proud feminist and enthusiastically support the #HeForShe campaign.
Off my soapbox and on to the weekend. It’s a busy one. Kat is coming over and I will finally watch The Fault In Our Stars. I wanted to read the book first but this is a better plan. Saturday is action packed. We get my favorite girl again. I’m finally going to experience some Detroit Design Festival action with a Jane Jacobs walking tour in Midtown with Mom (and Gwen). Following the walk I will be rushing home and freshening up to return downtown for Detroit Restaurant Week at Roast with a contingent of my in-laws. I’m also hoping to check out Dlectricity as a post dinner activity. Sunday is a memorial mass for Mrs. B, a photography trip at Hines Drive and Once Upon A Time watch party with Gina. To top it off Danny and I will also finish season 4 of Game of Thrones.
