What happens when one of your favorite websites writes some bullshit in the name of feminism?

Let me put this out there before I get into all of these thoughts that I have about this topic because it is indeed complex. I am a fan of For Harriet and of Kimberly N. Foster – I admire women that stand up for what they believe in. I also admire Black women that […]

Dear Tal Fortgang, I don’t want you to apologize for your white male privilege – I just want you to acknowledge it

Unfair campaign
