Walking on eggshells — surviving social capital

My latest article on Medium!  This might be the most fire-filled article I’ve written in quite a while. It took me two decades but I’m finding my voice. And my rage 

“I’ve been told that everyone experiences this, that we’re all walking on eggshells and being vigilant not to say the wrong thing. It’s the toxicity of call-out culture, I’m told. We’re all affected, I’m told. I don’t agree. I see people with more social capital in our circles saying and doing anything they like, with apparent impunity. I’ve experienced classism, ableism, transmisogyny and sexual assaults within the scene that would put the mainstream to shame. And accountability doesn’t serve people like me.”
