I can’t do this. I’ve tried, but even attempting to put together another post has been triggering me to the point that I haven’t been able to log into WordPress for several weeks. It is just plain hell going through all the shit out there, reading through it, picking and choosing what to share, organizing it, all the while drowning in the hell that is the world today for so many people. And the victories that I read about just aren’t enough to overcome that feeling. Especially not when Activist Apathy starts to set it.

So I’m going officially step away from this for a few weeks while I rethink what I”m doing here. Whatever I do it will continue to be able activism and intersectionality. But I think what I may do just re-blog the occasional must-read article, and focus on building pages of information about intersectionality, and all the oppressions that so many people deal with every day.

If you’ve been following this and have an idea for what else I might do here, feel free to share your thoughts. Otherwise, I’ll see you sometime in August.

 

Hey folks, as some of you may have noticed, I am remaking this blog into a forum for folks from across activism to learn about what is going on in other movements. Interesectionality is often spoken of within movements – “My feminism will be intersectional.” but it also needs to be across movements – feminist talking with POC, family rights activists working hand in hand with LGBT, and so much more.

There is so much going on and so many battles being fought, it is nearly impossible to keep up with all of them. So if you are devoted to fighting racism, or ableism, or body shaming, to gaining gender equality or protection for transfolk, here you can share information about your own battles, and learn about what is going on in the battle grounds next door. Most posts here will be a collection of links to recent events. The first post, going up later tonight, will be recent events in feminism. Next week will be LGBT rights, the week after that racism and the battle of people of color.

Guest posts, sharing experiences in your activism, discussing intersectionality, and similar topics are welcome. If something important happened in your neck of the woods that I missed, let me know and I’ll made sure it gets added.

101 pages with information for people new to various activisms and ideas will be going up over the next few weeks. if you have a link, article or infographic that you would like to see as part of a 101 page, please let me know.

 

Links are not endorsements – I may link to pieces that I do not agree with. I will not link to pieces that I feel are intentionally offensive. Caitlan Moran is not one of my favorite people, but she is a major voice in feminism and for that alone it is worth being aware of what she has to say. Link titles are my own take on the major point of the articles linked to – they are not necessarily the actual titles of the articles.

For folks who initially followed me for writing related topics, I’ll be starting a new blog for those, and will announce the link for that blog here when it is up and running. Thanks for your patience.
