I have been silent on this site. I have looked at the various contributions and they have all had interesting thoughts . There still seems and this commentary proves it again- a divide between users and non user professionals. Whether they have lived experience is never mentioned and that creates more of a divide on this site. Is it fear based or did they just get lucky or does status play its hand even with a female based cohort? Glad this is being thought about but meh because it is so all encompassing – the range – used is or seems overwhelming. The best folks to be actively involved with actual power to talk the talk and monetary ability to walk the walk would be those with multilateral experiences. Until you have been pregnant one just can’t conceive – no pun intended- how life is changed forever. We as a world community keep on looking to professionals even with the best intentions who just miss the boat because as in male Ob/Gyn cant talk the talk or walk the walk. A movement needs folks from both sides in an equal concurrent community. Actually, from the whole spectrum. Seneca Falls and the meeting way back before that. Check it out -African American females and others working for rights of both. We just need to do it and folks will come like an open audition . Scary kind of very Who knowsish but look at how many stats have been found in theatre or sports. One lighted candle showing the way. Think folks. Work together. Listen and professionals be humble. Some of you never ever would have suirvived by what we survivors have and had been done to us. Blogs with both folks – a written conversation would be a good start.
