Haha weird that I just mentioned that as an issue seconds after you posted!
I don’t on DiS generally. I think it would be really hard to talk about my love for the lyrics of like Courtney Love, Beyonce and Gwen Stefani - where those lyrics are deeply tied to womanhood and femininity - without tying it to my own experiences. The other women on here are also incredible and so intelligent and supportive.
I do pretend to be a man elsewhere on the internet if I want to blend into the background though. It’s really refreshing to not feel under scrutiny and just be able to focus on me without the pressures and attention that come with being a woman in male dominated spaces. I was trying to explain to my ex on Saturday how me being a woman materially impacts on me at Countdown tournaments: I have to deal with harassment whether actual or potential, dismissive attitudes from Very Smart Men and being around people who make me uncomfortable either by actively being creepy or who enable creepy/offensive behaviour and have done for years. Disassociating from that a bit through a fake online persona sacks off some of the baggage.
