So many of us have been trying to have these conversations about and universities for years, but have been told over & over again that this is just the way it is. And now we're being told we should "speak up" and feel guilty if we don't or can't. That's fucked.

My story is ugly and complicated and confusing but it is also how I know that everything ppl are saying about this department is true. Typing and retyping what I guess i’m not yet ready to say.

YES. To characterize the multitude of voices who have found their voices on social media as unjust or toxic is to uphold the systems that have kept marginalized groups silent. Was it better for you, Margaret, when the rest of were grateful for the crumbs tossed us?

I am grateful to the people who have been doing the hard, thankless work for years. I do see communities of generosity & care in (whatever that is/it is worth thinking what that is) but they aren't led by the acolytes, they are lit by the community-builders.

Honestly, women have been speaking about this for years. The fact that it took a male writer’s essay to spark the attention of Concordia’s president is part of the problem.

Replying to @GinaLeola
8) Why not use your power for good? Why not sit down with uni Deans and Dpt heads, and ask earnestly, WTF is going on? In public, perhaps? Arrange for a travelling panel or something. Ask what you can do to help. Ask questions instead of having your own knee-jerk reaction

THREAD: 1/ I'm a Canadian writer, with an English PhD, studying to become a lawyer. In those three things, I interact with the abhorrent scandal in three different ways. First of all, as a Canadian writer, everything I write is "CanLit." How embarrassing.
