You should have seen the comments on my making my first semi-substantive question on Facebook in months. I know a lot of people feel similarly, Henry, but nobody would speak up in this situation. The folks you’re referring to really do feel justified in venting their feelings and opinions on everything (I feel lucky not to have heard of the UK controversy until just now — people must be isolated to not know guys like that absolutely think like that and are unselfconscious about expressing it).

I feel good I reconnected with a few people on based on that post. Things are changing. Another thing that gives me hope is my students. They don’t speak or think in these ways at all. Not even a little.
