A complaint against a minoritized person is not always an exercise of power against that person because of their minority status. As many of us know too well, institutions reward abusive behaviour, often strategically misrecognizing harassment and bullying as expressive, eccentric, or even as signs of genius. Those of us who are not straight, cis white men are more likely to have doors opened to us when we reinforce those same patterns of behaviour.

The “feature image” for all posts should be 1200x630px. Graphics, photos, or YouTube videos should be included with every blog item and must have a caption. Open source photos can be found on sites like Wikimedia Commons. In your voice – write from your own perspective and share your opinions. Currently, we are only accepting pitches for stand-alone posts, no multi-post columns or series.


We read each email and regularly answer inside one business day.
