I’ve got a piece up on RHRealityCheck today about why I think it’s important to stay in Texas if you’re a feminist, so the place doesn’t go to shit (ETA: so that Texas doesn’t go to shit. Not RHRealityCheck, which would be fine without me.)
“I know that I love Texas too much, and I love Texans too much, to pack my bags and leave this state to be stripped down into something unrecognizable by people whose hearts are filled with hate and ignorance and contempt for equality. Yes, our elected representatives have, along with those in many other parts of the country (Indiana!), spent recent years doing all they can to make life worse for women. But I wonder if that’s largely a reflection of a Texas that doesn’t know, or perhaps has forgotten, what feminism looks like and can do for it.”
