Alrighty then! Julia Serano's new(ish) book Excluded has emerged victorious, so let's gear up to discuss it! A summary:
While feminist and queer/LGBTQIA+ movements are designed to challenge sexism, they often simultaneously police gender and sexuality—sometimes just as fiercely as the straight-male-centric mainstream does. Here, acclaimed feminist and queer activist Julia Serano chronicles this problem of exclusion within these movements. She advocates for a more holistic approach to fighting sexism that avoids these pitfalls, and offers new ways of thinking about gender, sexuality, and sexism that foster inclusivity rather than exclusivity.

I'm tentatively deciding to meet in the West Bay for a change, and pushing it back to the 10th because the Godless Perverts Social Club meets the first Tuesday of the month and the place can get pretty crowded. But I'm open to input on both these plans, so please let me know if you have suggestions, e.g., for alternative venues!
