Sexism in Debate (yes I’m talking about it)

I need your help, fellow forensicators. I started talking about sexism and the wealth gap in debate, and was brutally attacked on twitter (and later, over the phone). This unfortunate experience has inspired me to write an essay in which I examine how sexism affects an individual in the debate community, to be posted on facebook later this week. I would like to talk about my own experiences, but obviously they do not represent the majority.

That’s where y’all come in. If anyone has resources or experiences they’d like to share, I would be ecstatic to be able to use them, in order to paint a more holistic picture of sexism in debate. As a white queer woman in debate, my ability to go intersectional in debate is limited.

Also, if you could reblog/spread the word, that would also be cool
