“In America today, women are angry. But this isn’t a modern phenomenon, argues the author Rebecca Traister. In her new book, “Good and Mad: The Revolutionary Power of Women’s Anger,” Traister details how female rage has long been the country’s political fuel. She expounded on this idea at Aspen Ideas Festival in June, where, in a video interview, she discussed how the fury of American women—from the suffragists to the abolitionists to Rosa Parks—has catalyzed major political movements. Read a review of Traister’s book on:The Atlantic.”
I’m cool with anger not that I enjoy being angry or seeing angry people ( especially with me ) but I’m fine with justifiable anger just as long as it’s used to bring about positive change and used in a constructive sense.
Anyone can be angry with some or something, but unless they use that anger and express how they feel to make things better and express while they’re angry with someone or about something, maybe you believe someone screwed you at work or you were turned down for a promotion and it went to someone who is less qualified, you’re boyfriend or girlfriend is cheating on you, whatever the case is and whoever you believe wronged you unless you express you’re feelings and do something about it to improve your situation, anger is nothing more than wasted emotion and energy. Emotion and energy that could’ve been used to to make things better for you.
Not to get too political but by message for Democrats and Independents who don’t like President Donald Trump and the Republican Congress you can be as angry as you want to with the Republican Party especially in Washington right now, but if you don’t bother to vote for candidates who oppose what they’re doing, you’re wasting your time and the country’s time as well. Bottled up emotion is as useful and makes as much sense as trying to swim up stream with one arm and leg going into a 20 mile and hour and wind.
Anger is only a useful emotion when it’s used to make things better even for yourself or people you care about. The same thing with screwing up and making mistakes if you don’t learn from them, you’ll make the exact same mistakes again and you’ll be nothing more than a screwup who is perhaps learning impaired as well. Whether it’s women who care about the me too movement or just hate Donald Trump and his treatment of women today and in the past, unless you use your anger to bring about positive change, all you’re doing is trying to swim upstream with one arm and one leg in a 20 mile hour wind and your anger is nothing more than wasted energy and emotion.
