Queer Chicana feminist writer Gloria Anzaldúa was born 71 years ago today. As an activist and theorist, she pioneered ideas of intersectionality, feminism, queer theory, cultural theory, language, and more.
Happy birthday, Gloria!

My favorite poet, and my favorite feminist - though it’s weird to realize I have a “favorite feminist.” Go read her stuff. 
I remember when she died I was ridiculously sad that I’d never met her, that she’d never read anything I wrote and know how much she inspired me to think about language and queer feminism and poetry and racism. 
I quote her more than I quote Shakespeare. 

Reblogging for the comment. Love this.

In last night’s gubernatorial debate, Wendy Davis stood strong and called Abbott’s blatant twisting of facts for what it was. His campaign’s desperate post-debate response? Calling her clearly superior performance a “meltdown.”
It’s outrageous, patronizing, and incredibly sexist. But you know what? If Greg Abbott and his team have to resort to sexist attacks on Wendy, it only shows one thing: She’s someone he’s afraid of.
