speaking is receiving ..Positie and Negative responses

Hi all,

I've been out of the circle for several weeks and I missed the interaction. However, the latest post I got, I guess from Jensine is the probability of having our voices land into the "wrong" ears. These are the people who may not agree with what we have expressed through our on experiences, yet they expressed their disagreement thru violent reactions or criticisms.
This is one of the threats of the world Pulse. as we find this a venue to consolidate our individual experiences as women who are victims of discrimination, domestic violence, marginalization and other forms of sex-based inequalities, some of these sharing may have landed on people who have different perspectives. We are called to be open to this possibility. Not all people who read our voices may agree to us. we can consider it as their right not to agree with us. However, they should respect the author who had the experience which may be totally different from their own not only on the basis of differing perspective but also differences on the socio-cultural context that such experience took place.
they may find pulse wire not empowering to them, then they just should stop joining us. but I guess its not also advisable to put some regulations just for them. we should not waste our energy and time putting some rules to exclude them. we will just ignore them. Meaning, we do not consider their views as something that will make us become disintegrated. Otherwise, they will win in breaking us and mislead us.
