Making a virtue of cowardice

The Fawcett Society is continuing the “who can possibly know what to think in such a complicated disagreement??” approach. If they’re going to go that route in spite of everything, why are they even the Fawcett Society? Why aren’t they the Everybody Society? Being a feminist society is taking a position, it’s not throwing up one’s hands and saying “You’re both wrong and you should both apologize and start over.” Feminism isn’t about splitting the difference.

Ah yes “mediation.” Let’s force “mediation” between the aggressor and the target; let’s split the difference between the bully and the victim; let’s say “you’re both wrong” instead of paying attention to the reality; let’s say “good people on both sides” and see what happens.
