    How’d it go last night?

      Well I’m not sure that we figured everything out ;) but we had a good discussion around how we define our gender, stereotypes on gender, is it just binary in essence, how we react to expressions of gender that fall outside of societal norms, and how patriarchy, fear, and a lack of understanding influences our ideas about and perceptions of gender. Personally, it was another discussion that helped me to see that this is yet another topic that I am only starting to scratch the surface on related to my own personal understanding.

      I also think the interesting thing is that you never know who is going to show up! The other week about protesting was predominetly conservative folks, this one was predominently LGBT folks. Some weeks the mix is better than others, even equal at times! Keeps us on our toes though…we never know who is going to show up or what the reaction is going to be :)
