How are you? If you are well, then I am also well.
Congratulations on your excellent article in The Guardian on intersectionality. It was a joy to read and, at the very least, has stirred up an interesting conversation.
This has been an open letter a few weeks in the making. Indeed, the first outline started shortly after drinks here in Canberra. As it seemed that I’d disturbed Adam somewhat with an open letter to him, I figured I’d be more careful in the composition of this one. Despite the failure of that one to hit its mark, I still think that the format can be used for the powers of good.
After a few rounds of thought, your article in The Guardian — or, rather, the comments you received in response — inspired a bit more thinking about the question of academic feminism and the prevailing attitude in society that feminism is something that is supposed to be easy.
