He writes The Sugarbutch Chronicles. I’m going to say upfront, I think his practice of some non-Western religions/cultures is probably appropriative, but besides that (not ignoring that), it was a bit amazing. And really, really squee-worthy.
It’s just, for the entirety of that class, which is the “Study of Women, Gender, and Sexuality” but is more like “WOMEN, gender*, and sexuality,” we’ve been doing really old, academic readings. My teacher is a history professor, and I agree studying the history of the movement is good, but I would have also preferred that the people in that class go out into the world with a working knowledge of current GSM politics, so they don’t do something horrific to the next trans* person they see due to ignorance. So to have someone come in who spoke my language, who talked about kink and BDSM and gender and sexuality, who is genderqueer and queer and butch and knew what they were talking about was amazing.
Now I think I’m going to write them an email telling them how much I appreciate their time, and asking about how their feminism can be intersectional with the way they approach religion.
*And when I make gender slightly bigger than sexuality, it’s because we discussed masculinity for a class as well. Not because we actually discussed gender.
