I Write Letters

[Content Note: Anti-feminism.]

Dear Washington Post:

What are you even doing?

Do I really need to point out that privileging the unintentional awareness-raising of feminism by a woman rejecting the label over the intentional, thoughtful, deliberative work of actual proud feminists is itself deeply anti-feminist?

And over a woman's byline, no less.

Gross, WaPo. Gross.

No Love,
