I can’t speak to protestants. But the overarching Reform Judaism org is 100% LGBT friendly, so you’d be very unlikely to find a Reform synagogue that wasn’t gay friendly. It’s not as corporate as Catholics but all Reform rabbis are trained and taught under the URJ rules which explicitly welcome/support/champion LGBT Read more

Lutherans, some Anglican and Episcopalian churches, many Unitarian churches, some Methodists. Heaps of them, really.  And that is just among Christian religions. Read more

Ah, I was waiting for the #NotAllMen folks to show up! Read more

It’s exhausting how they ignore every woman’s experiences and pretend not to get it.  Read more

If you’re a woman, do you want to make that gamble when the wrong choice means you’re dead?  Read more

Because men can’t take rejection. I have worked in the alcohol industry and have spent A LOT of time in bars, usually on my own for one reason or another. Men hit on me all the time regardless of how cute/hagtastic I looked. They’d send over drinks. They’d sit *right* next to me, despite 15 open seats at the bar. Read more
