So I was taking to a coworker today, who is a dues paying member of our cause. He’s busy trying to make sure all his family members are signed up for NRA, or current with their membership. He just signed up his wife, whose family escaped Nazi occupied France and sought refuge in Latin America, along with many other Jews.
“You should get a junior NRA membership for [the boy]” I noted, thinking not much of it.*
So I came home and told Bitter our efforts, and she admonishes me for my sexism almost immediately. He has an older daughter, and why did I not think of her? I have to admit my fault here. I may have been raised by northeastern Democratic parents, but in my cultural upbringing, guns were a boy thing. I guess it took an Oklahoma native to point that out to me. So don’t discount members based on your biases. I guess that’s my lesson for tonight.
* There is a junior membership there if you look carefully at the tabs.
