I wrote recently, on Twitter, that I was getting the word “feminist” tattooed on my ass. I was only joking, but I might as well have been serious. It’s true that in all the most important things I am—mother, writer, hiker, wife, daughter, seeker—feminism is at the center. It’s a descriptor so clear and permanent it seems to me it’s inked on my ass whether it’s literally there or not. I’ve been a feminist since before I knew what a feminist was. It’s an indelible part of my identity and it informs everything I do.
To add insult to injury, this one trans woman in Georgia that was incarcerated for allegedly exposing her breasts in public was placed and harassed in the men’s ward. Unfortunately this story happens all the time, but it’s still one worth reading. [Advocate]
