In a year of both wonderful advances and devastating violence against LGBT people, it can be hard to take stock of where we stand as a community — and of the disparities that occur within the queer community itself.

Mama Nation

Mother, sister, daughter, nationalist. Hyper-nationalists the world over — those who believe in the superiority of their countries regardless of what these countries do– love gendering the nation while telling women how to be patriotic. And yes, it’s bullshit.

Now that you know how I really feel about MRAs, you can fully appreciate my fascination with this account of one female, feminist-identified journalist’s time attending an entire conference last weekend specifically for MRAs to connect. Kelsey Miller is one brave feminist.
