(33 posts)I am a, relatively, active participant in NEO politics. I lent them my bullhorn on CLE city hall steps in 2015- June. After USSC ratified marriage equality. And. My name is Vicci. Sherrod and I have made fun of our names on at least 2 occasions.

Connie “blocked “ me when I called out the difference between a “single” parent v a “divorced” parent v a “widowed” parent

My mom was widowed with 7 kids in 1971. I despise the “woah is me” single parent/divorced parent BS be a widowed parent- with 7 kids. Then get back to me.

Off my soap box. But. I will never forget.

(Btw- my mom was a journalist- and was published in NYT....we were low middle income in the 70/80s. She never dated and never complained)
