  1. I most strongly identify as a feminist so I often have to pause and check my reactions to men in power when I note behaviours I consider to be anti-feminist. My reminder for myself is that as a feminist if I am thoughtless and bullying then I am an exhibiting the very behaviours I want to not see in others

    1. Good example! I struggle a little with this one because I believe in being inclusive and I also believe in trusting your intuition about who to get close to and who not. For example, children are often taught to over-ride their gut feelings and be “friends with everyone” but this can do a child a disservice in that they may learn to disregard feelings that build well-being and self-awareness and even keep them safe. I think the distinction of levels of trust is needed in the discussion. You don’t have to treat everyone the same way to be inclusive.
