Response to: Perspective?

I think Amy is in fact countering discrimination in her own way. It seems to me that rather than choosing to highlight all the discrimination she encounters, Amy has chosen instead to show by example how wrong those discriminators are, by showing that she's not a victim of anything or anyone. By holding herself (rather than other people or groups) responsible for how her life turns out, she is in fact taking control over her own life. I think the message she is sending with that act is a very empowering one for women and men alike.

I, for one, applaud her (and others like her) for her stance and actions, and hope to hear more from her in the future.
