It is easy to feel like we keep losing but holy fuck, look how far we've come since 2015. Consent culture is mainstream. Ask culture is pretty common now.

The stigma of taking care of our mental well-being is pretty much a thing of the past.

Discussions of intersectionality, power, and systematic oppression are being had on late night shows almost every night.

I love that people are learning that boundaries are a good thing; that they create healthy relationships.

Maybe it is just that I surround myself with wonderful people that prioritize these things, but it really feels like as a culture, we're progressing towards consent, inclusivity, and acceptance.

It is easy to count each lost battle in this culture war and feel we're losing, but the truth of the matter is we're winning. We take two steps forward for every one step back.

Keep loving. Keep Fighting. These fascists are bound to lose!

I totally agréé with you, each time progressist ideas are getting accepted, the reactionary forces become loud and brutal, because they are also feeling it : less people adhere to those ideas. So only the more convinced stay and they become louder about it. The struggle is continuing but step after step, we are closer from liberation.
