An Open Letter to Feminist Trolls

Published on Sep 27, 2013
This month, I talk about gender’s relationship to media in a slightly different way — by discussing the problems inherent in using words like ‘slut,’ ‘bitch,’ and ‘cunt’ against feminists in an attempt to offend and silence us.

Because the thing is: We’ve already deconstructed these words and understand that they’re rooted in a whole lot of misogyny. So when you hurl them at us, what we really hear is: “You still have work to do!” So thanks for the validation and motivation.
