DeliciousIrony Sun 22-Jan-17 18:31:42

I find this really heartening.

DeviTheGaelet Sun 22-Jan-17 18:44:29

Wow. I nearly didn't open the thread after her non-reappearance on the "what is a woman" thread. This is great. Very brave Jack flowers

geekaMaxima Sun 22-Jan-17 18:55:26

I remember that thread. I wonder if it played any part in how Jack regarded being a woman?

Go Jack! 😀

DeviTheGaelet Sun 22-Jan-17 18:58:25

I think if she genuinely started the thread to reflect on what a woman is then it must have done. If it hadn't she would have been back I think. We will never know though grin

@mxjackmonroe you're welcome, welcome welcome. We are women, that doesn't mean we accept or acknowledge gendered expectations, that doesn't mean we think or feel the same, but it does mean we share female bodies and the fact of being in the 'inferior' class under patriarchy. We can't fight it if we try to identify out of it, climbing over the bodies of other women as we go...

TinselTwins Sun 22-Jan-17 20:37:48

FUCKING YES!!!! grin grin grin

QueenLaBeefah Sun 22-Jan-17 20:42:03

Great news!!

Welcome back, Jack.

bibbitybobbityyhat Sun 22-Jan-17 20:46:13

I can't find that tweet anything other than annoying. Sorry!

MyWineTime Sun 22-Jan-17 20:46:15

Wonderful words!

notMarlene Sun 22-Jan-17 20:49:55

How utterly fucking brilliant and brave of Jack.

bibbitybobbityyhat Sun 22-Jan-17 20:50:55

brave??

EIsbethTascioni Sun 22-Jan-17 20:52:28

Welcome back Jack! Excellent tweeting.

notMarlene Sun 22-Jan-17 20:52:38

Fuck yeah. The gender fuckery activist types are hardly likely to give her an easy ride. No?

TinselTwins Sun 22-Jan-17 20:54:51

Yes, bibbidy, it's always brave to do a 180, even more so when it's a very public one

OneWithTheForce Sun 22-Jan-17 20:58:02

Apologies in advance of this probably idiotic question but what does this mean? I know jack monroe from the "cheap meals" fame but don't follow them. I know (or thought I knew) that they didn't identify as a woman. Are they now saying they do? Or they will until there is equality for women?
