A short insightful essay about a topic I am incredibly passionate about feminism I was practically nodding my head the entire time as so much of what was brought forth hit home However I had a few issues with heteronormative and cisnormative language I don't believe she was being intentionally exclusionary so I'm interested to read her newest feminist essay in the near future
