Dear fake anarchist community,
I found this great article on Jezebel about how women with high-pitched voices and/or women who talk in "up-speak" are discriminated against. The article is here: http://jezebel.com/how-to-get-ahead-by-sounding-less-feminine-1646769934
I really think that the fake anarchist community in Portland and elsewhere would benefit from reading this article and educating their sexist brains on the subject. Back when I accidentally thought that Portland's fake anarchist community would be a welcoming place for me, I remember how male, female and genderqueer people rarely took me seriously because my voice is too feminine to their liking. I really love this article, because it talks about a subject that a lot of people with high-pitched voices struggle through in life. Hopefully Portland's fake anarchist community can grow from this, so that they can become less sexist than they are now, and their projects and endeavors won't fail so much from excluding people who they don't like for arbitrary reasons like the way someone talks.
