mil·i·tant: adjective

1 : engaged in warfare or combat
2 : aggressively active (as in a cause)

Well the first definition doesn't fit me. At least unless things get pretty damned desparate. The second... well, that fits pretty well.

Why am I a militant? Why do I feel we must make a stand right here? Right now?

Here's today's reason.
POLICE are being advised to treat Muslim domestic violence cases differently out of respect for Islamic traditions and habits.

Officers are also being urged to work with Muslim leaders, who will try to keep the families together.

Women's groups are concerned the politically correct policing could give comfort to wife bashers and keep their victims in a cycle of violence.
First in a series.
