Being Dismissive of People Who Don’t March (aka More Social Justice-y than You)

There’s a thing in social justice and activist communities that has now become a call-out culture thing that really bothers me. It’s the idea that if you’re not doing “X activist thing” that somehow you are not doing enough, or you don’t care about the subject of said activist thing, or that you are somehow […]

Last Week of Lent: Social Justice Work Comes At A Cost (Paganism, Christianity, and Me)

I want to be able to say something profound here about my working, but I just can’t. At least, not in any way that’ll make sense to people other than myself. Most of what I’ve learned this week is that I shouldn’t read any social media until after I’ve done my morning prayers, had breakfast, […]

In fact, some would claim that what I talk about in my misogyny post is sexism, but misogyny is the active hatred of women or the feminine. Sexism is the stereotyping, prejudice, and discrimination that comes with […]

30 Days of Social Justice 27: Microaggressions/Trigger Warnings #30daysofsocialjustice #amwriting

There’s been a great deal of flak given to micro-aggressions and trigger warnings lately. Mostly with the idea that it is somehow coddling people and making things too “nicey nice” for people. Most recently there was an article in The Atlantic about it. (The Mary Sue did a great follow up to the Atlantic’s article.) The […]
