Dear Jane, let me first say that I greatly admire your work, and hope to one day be a prominent feminist icon, such as yourself.
I’m in my early 20’s and attending my second year of Women’s Studies at Cambridge College in Boston, MA. I’m fat positive, bbw, bisexual cis-girl who has been feeling particularly lonely as of late. When I have attempted to enter the dating game, the “men” frequently turn out to be assholes who don’t understand the importance of feminism, LGBTQ rights, and everything else that’s so super essential in today’s society.
Worse yet, some men I’ve met have been outright misogynists, and even attempt debating me on the necessity of feminism in modern American culture.
