    Hey, I’m not trying to be rude here or anything, but I just wanted you to know that your definition of sex (“The biological and physiological traits that define men and women”) is actually really transphobic, and erases intersex people entirely. By saying that biological sex defines gender, you are invalidating the experience of basically every trans person I’ve ever met, as well as that of all the nonbinary people (I am, incidentally, nonbinary). I wouldn’t normally take the time to call someone out on something like this over the internet, but as I’ve actually met some of the people who run this blog, and I didn’t think any of them would be purposely transphobic, I figured it was worth a shot.

    Thank you for all you do!

    There is no definition for intersectionality, which is incredibly important in thinking about and discussing intersections between forms of discrimination and oppression.

      You’re definitely right! We have several blog posts that discuss and explain intersectionality but I will totally add it to the page. Thanks for the feedback
