My mom is awesome. I work with (and for) some amazing human beings who were issued fallopian tubes at birth. My favorite professor is a woman. My second favorite physician in The Universe is a lesbian, and I send my family to her without compunction.
Women often see the world differently than I do, affording me an opportunity to learn. Sometimes women have oblique, elegant approaches to problems, using finesse where I am inclined to bash and grind.
I like talking with women. I like hearing them laugh. I like watching competent women get shit done. I like the feel of an embrace given by a woman in love.
Thirty years ago, I’d have been happy to be called a feminist.
