I advocate because gender constructs affect people every day in tangible, corporeal, & restrictive ways. It's up to all of us to understand this & define / redefine / abolish / rearrange / shape gender for the benefit of humanity.

It’s no coincidence that attacks on gender studies come from those who have a problem with democracy and equality. The study of race, gender, and sexuality has done so much to improve our present and make new futures possible. And we’re just getting started.
