I feel that this is an extremely valid point. If there is anything I have learned from becoming more public all you vocal about my opinions it’s that the most common argument for why something I feel is wrong is in fact correct, it’s that it’s always been that way, or “everybody” thinks this way, so it must be right.
I disagree. If “everybody” was really “everybody”, wouldn’t I think that way too? And if the argument is that it’s the way it has always been and everybody does it, we would still have slaves, the Japanese-Canadians would still be interred at the PNE, the world would not have @georgehtakei, I would not have permission to write this post, unless my husband concurred…
I cannot agree strongly enough with @kameronhurley – internalizing a story does not make it true. A story is always just that – a story.

Originally intended to simply focus on book reviews, over time, KaliDesautelsReads has morphed into its own entity.
I write about issues that are near to my heart, be they political, feminist, motherhood, mental health, or, as the title holds, books.
A thirty-something Canadian woman in my mid-thirties, I have been "super married" to my high school sweetheart since 2006, and together we have two crazy, clever, kind, hilarious, wonderful kids.
My first book - How Not To Blog: Finding Myself, One Post at a Time is available on Amazon (in eBook formats for you clever tech readers, and paperback for those of us who love that new book smell!)
I have tried a podcast - it's still on Apple and Google Podcasts - but writing is where my heart is.
My life changed dramatically when my husband was diagnosed with Stage 3 cancer in 2018, and I am now a writer for a leading Canadian Cancer Non-Profit.
I am lucky enough to have a family that loves me and pushes me to be my best, even if it is outside of my cushiony comfort zone. I have a village of friends that nourish me, mentally, and spiritually.
Welcome to my thoughts. Sit down. Stay a while. Enjoy a cup of coffee!
