The Woman+ Thread Is Late and That’s Okay

Some guidelines to help this space be a positive experience for everyone:

☮ As always with the Avocado, don’t feel compelled to share beyond your comfort level.

☮ Anyone who identifies as female, or who was socialized female/AFAB/otherwise has firsthand experience with the issues being discussed, is welcome to post. If you identify as cis-male, we ask that you please set your participation to “lurk” mode, unless otherwise explicitly invited to participate further (i.e. if we did an AMA kind of thread). I’m sure there’s plenty to be gleaned just by reading!

☮ Please do your best to be mindful of others’ experiences when commenting or posing questions for the group. The female identity is Legion and contains multitudes, and not everyone who has experience with being treated as female by society identifies as female. Furthermore, racial and ethnic identities, sexual orientation, and many other factors can color how one experiences their gender identity on a day-to-day basis. 

Bring us your news, discussions, frustrations and inspirations, Avocado Ladies+!

This week’s suggested topic: Free Topic

I wanted to hit on some more serious stuff this week but alas. We will have to talk about whatever we want this week. If anyone has topics for future installments that they want to share, I’d be happy to take suggestions.
