Why acknowledging sexism (even inadvertent sexism) is important

    Hey Emily, I just saw this whole shit-storm of posts in my DN digest email... and wanted to say thank you so much for taking the time to write this response. I've thought so many times about writing posts like this in response to similar awful sexist threads that pop up here, but in the end I just get discouraged and decide its not worth it. So thanks for speaking out as a woman when you already know the audience is like, hundreds of dudes screaming at each other. Its so important, and I know that women who have long left the site appreciate it.

      Anna, thanks for the shout! I've left this thread alone for the last few days since I didn't feel like I could respond to some of the comments productively. I'm so glad my thoughts resonated with you. Also, I love your Tumblr and now feel like there is a serious lack of alpaca in my life…
