HeatherN offers herself up for anyone who may have questions about feminism or gender politics. No question too big, no question too small!
One of the most common hurdles I’ve come across when discussing feminism with non-feminists is that they aren’t always that familiar with feminist ideas and terminology. One of the most common hurdles non-feminists come across when trying to talk about feminism with feminists is that sometimes when they ask a question about feminism they are dismissed and treated as hostile, and their question goes unanswered.
So, let’s kill two gender non-specific birds with one very cool stone. I am a feminist and you potentially have questions about feminism. So ask them and I’ll answer. No question is too big. No question is too small. All shall be revealed, etc.
To be clear, I’m not here to argue whether feminist ideas are right or wrong, just explain feminist opinions on topics you ask about. I figure questions might look something like these:
“Feminism doesn’t seem to address issue X; why not?”
“What does [insert feminist term] actually mean?”
“I once heard a feminist say X is feminism, and then another say that it isn’t. Which is it?”
“Why do feminists seem so concerned with [insert feminist issue]?”
So, go ahead and ask your question in the comments below. Or, feel free to e-mail me at [email protected]. If you’d like your question to remain anonymous, just say so in the e-mail.
