Theory is ultimately not about being ‘academic’. You want to slag theory, you see it as pretentious and impractical… all right, that’s your opinion. For me? Theory rebuilt my world. And believe you me I did not have much will, faith, or desire to build a birdhouse let alone a future. But with theory, with coming out — I discovered possibility. And I want to share the projects of possibility and therefore resistance that feminist philosophy can enable.
