  • Mood:

leave me alone!

I'm getting activism fatigue. It's getting to the point that when I receive email from the HRC or PFAW or ACLU and the like I delete it without reading it because I just can't deal with appeals from every quarter. there is only so much of me to go around and even less of my money. I do internet activism of the "send a fax" variety from time to time but am skeptical as to its value. but right now I'm so tense about the election that I can't bear to read another word of how the extreme right is trying to get us all to stop having sex and go to church on sundays and exploit the poor during the week and sow fear and loathing wherever anyone dares resist.

today I even deleted a Defenders of Wildlife email. how could I do that?? what did the sea otters ever do to me that I ignore them??

god. the guilt.
