Friday Feminist – Chally Kacelnik

Cross posted

You’re doing feminism wrong.
You should talk about this. You shouldn’t talk about this.
Not everything can be about your group, you know! Let’s talk about mine.
Let me explain something to you.
I’ve never experienced this so it can’t be.
Respond right now.
I’m leaving.
Get your issues out of my feminism.

This is a short extract from Chally’s poem. The whole poem is on-line at Feministe.

Chally Kacelnik, “A Poem for Feministe Commenters”, Feministe, 19 March 2011

    I’m a Friday Feminist! How terribly flattering. Thank you, Deborah!

    I’ve been working on that poem for a long, looooooooong time.

  2. Helen says:

    The thing that I always forget and which always blows me out about you, Chally, is just how young you are, but your writing is up there with any thirtysomething’s. I hate to think how good you’ll be once you hit middle age!

  3. Mindy says:

    I suspect that Chally isn’t just going to hit middle age, Helen, she’s gonna knock it right out of the park. No pressure though!

  4. M-H says:

    I love this poem. Love love love it. It almost makes me weep, I love it so much. Thank you Chally.
