CH commented on my Big Tent Blues post yesterday that I hadn’t addressed the concerns of ageism, misogyny and lack of feminist principals raised by the folks who left to create Butch Nation. Â As I’m reading through Sasha T. Goldberg’s posts (this and this), I see that concerns were raised and that Sasha and others didn’t feel they were adequately addressed. Â That’s all I know about it. Â I wasn’t in on the conversation, I don’t know what specifics they tried to discuss, so I can’t speak to those issues. Â I do know that ageism has to be more than just disagreeing with someone who’s older than you and misogyny has to be more than being inclusive of people with a masculine centered identity. Â That’s my line in the sand.
I’m inviting anyone who has information on what those issues were to educate me. Â Without information, I’m not going to comment more on those issues. Â Thank you.
