Feminism is Optimism

While I think Sara Ahmed’s argument about feminist killjoys and the necessity to “kill joy” if that means calling out sexist, racist etc. statements and actions is incredibly important, I find that this blog resonates so well with me too. I don’t think it’s an either/or situation. Feminists “kill joy” to help open other, freer paths to happiness and fulfillment.
