To the mothers of sons

To the mothers who believe they don’t need to speak to their boys about sexism because they’re ‘kind and compassionate boys’ and who therefore, presumably are immune to the influences of patriarchy and white supremacy, ableism, classism and homophobia.

I have a son too. I understand the pull of motherhood to protect them from the ugliness of the world.
