Anonymous asked: Will you be addressing the fact that a lot of us in the LGBT community don't like the idea of Ally Week? That we don't like the sense of entitlement that most "Allies" hold. Like they deserve a fucking cookie for meeting the barest fucking requirements for being a decent human being. (I know you are a true ally; an active ally, who educates cishets and amplifies queer voices. I don't want this to come off as attacking you.)

Thank you, and yes – that’s a huge part of tonight’s discussion about it. As a straight, white, cis-woman, there’s times when I should shut my goddamn mouth. And I’m not perfect. But I can educate myself and listen.

Cheers,
Meg
