Click link. In this excellent article on gender identity and womanhood, she explains how pressure was put on the publishers, by people who hadn't even read the article to not publish it, so she published it on her blog instead.
Oh holy moly....that is some writing. I don't consider myself well educated in feminism- I rarely post here but I have learned so much from those of you who regularly post, and who keep posting much of the same stuff over and over.
But this piece....it does take some hard thinking to keep up with her points, but they are well thought through. Brava!
Isn't it funny how a good writer can articulate something before I could even figure out the question they've gone on to answer.
Her last paragraph (hope it doesn't step on any toes to copy it)
"Gender roles and the hierarchy they maintain are incompatible with the liberation of women and girls from patriarchal oppression. It is because I love women, and because I am a woman, that I cannot afford to pretend otherwise. Embracing gender as an identity is the equivalent of decorating the interior of a cell: it is a superficial perspective which offers no freedom."
Thanks for sharing, I did get brain ache half way through and still not sure what gender queer is but loved the use of Cis-gendered instead of CisWomen. Women are women and in Cis-gender is least a definition without taking our Name
