There isn’t really much to say about this article except to read it and be appreciative that Cait was willing to share her personal perspective. I’m sure this post will be quite controversial, but she states early on, “the last thing I’m interested in doing at a time like this is calling people out”. Cait has an important message she wants to share, was conflicted about whether or not she should – or how she should handle it – but what she provides here is essential reading, something anyone interested in what happened to Kago Ai should not pass up.
I’m not sure if it’s going to change minds necessarily – the emotions and reactions that Kago brought out in our bloggers and readers came from each individual’s beliefs and experiences, and I doubt any of the blog posts were written lightly or without forethought. But Cait definitely adds a crucial dimension to the ongoing discussion, and I think we all benefit from it.
