Cassandra's Lament

There are people who accuse me, Sarah Kendzior, Leah McElrath, Andrea Chalupa, and others of "gloating" about being right when we point it out. Let me tell you something about myself and those women, who are my friends: We are fucking haunted by being right and not being heard or heeded.

We don't gloat that we were right. We grieve it.
