One of the strengths I derive from my class background is that I am accustomed to contempt.
Go through college as the only girl in your physics major (small school – long ago), and as the only woman in your class in grad school (nuc. engr.), and you can add being very used to benign neglect.
It toughens you – which is a good thing. It borders on contempt when it isn’t so benign – but they don’t quite dare kick you out. It prepares you for professional life.
And it also prepares you for future marketing, if you decide to self-publish.
I wonder, though, if it does much for the world.
Not Dorothy, but the truth she points up so well: that humans regularly dish out contempt for someone’s background, religion, gender, skin type, age, the place he or she calls home, and so on.
Wow, that hit me in the heart.
Powerful writing. Powerful truth.
