she hitches

Sara has a post up about her hitching.  A lover of mine was raped and nearly killed hitching and it temporarily shattered her life and our broke amazing romantic relationship, and try as we might years later we were never able to put it back together.  I have charge around women hitching alone.  And i completely support Sara in doing it.  She is the perfect ambassador for the radical movement: charming, accessible, young but not naive, perfectly peculiar whiskers.  And by asking the driver if it is okay to text their license to a couple of friends, she depresses the already low probability of problem to nearly nothing.

But it is not nothing.  And we have to take chances.  There is not a safe way to change the world and more and more of us are going to have to get more and more daring if we want to pull off a turn around.

Sara is one of my big teachers.  She is educating me about how to make time work in supporting a relationship with someone like me who is in near constant turbulence.  And she is instructing all of us on how to be daring and smart.

    I don’t want to discourage women from ever hitchhiking as well, but I am afraid that being obvious about noting or memorizing the license plate is not necessarily going to help; or in my case: it didn’t help a damn thing. When my driver drove away with all my possessions in France in 2007, I thought it was very inconvenient, but I would have him nailed. Despite the fact that I memorized the license plate perfectly and it was linked to the correct car, the police never took any action on it. I have convinced myself that I need to come up with a better method to safeguard myself, but haven’t thought of one yet….
