Getting Prescriptive.

Really not into “feminism” or “activism” that is just  self-aggrandizing confrontation.

Tip: if the takeaway is your name, you’re doing it wrong.

Tip: If you ignore valid criticism to focus on and mock “haters” you’re doing it wrong.

Tip: If you like to coin phrases like “slut shaming” and “rape culture”and then spend half your time explaining them to people as a a way to institutionalize and situate yourself for funding, while ignoring stuff like “racism” and “racism within feminism” and “class issues within feminism,” you’re really doing it wrong.

Tip: If you have a feminist ebook club and have not published one lady of color, you are doing it wrong.
