I have spent many years associating with pacifists on non-war related issues. I worked actively with one pacifists for over 20 years on education and homeless issues. During that time I came to know at least 50 pacifist activists in the San Francisco Bay Area.
What I’m about to say is clearly rude and borders on the outrageous: I think that there is a stereotypical face among female pacifists. I have included the face in this blog. Does this woman look like a pacifist to you?
I have looked at people in public areas who have the standard pacifist stereotypical face but have been reluctant to photograph these people because I didn’t know for sure that they were pacifists. In this case I know for sure that this woman is a pacifist. Not only is she a pacifist, this woman has advocated pacifism to such an extent that it killed her daughter.
The woman who is in the photograph is Rachel Corrie’s mother.
