i wrote this piece for the zine we believe you: femmes surviving toxic masculinity. it's about my journey of coming to understand myself as a survivor and also unpacking why we so often struggle to believe our stories.
i wrote this piece as i was working through how activist call-out culture lives in my body. it talks about how shame from being called out lives in my body in the same way as the shame i've inherited through silencing in the patriarchy. this piece tends to resonated with loud-mouth femmes and women who both find it impossible to be silent and struggle with how much space we take up.
