I'm publicly writing a book about Social Justice, Minus Dogma.

✅ One new essay every day in January

✅ An experiment in public thinking and crowdsourcing solutions

✅ Likely a bigger social risk than I realize that will result in at least a little pain (for me) and schadenfreude (for you? Nah, not you. You're too kind.)

🔜 Charting a path toward equity, together.

I'd love it if you follow along 👇

As soon as you sign up, you'll get a .PDF e-book of the first 272 pages I've written so far (through Jan. 24th)

    I'll email you once the book is done. Beyond that, you get to choose your own adventure:

    Why this book?

    I've been a social justice advocate creating resources for gender, sexuality, and social justice for about a decade now. For the past two years, I've been having a public conversation about what I've been calling "Social Justice Dogma."

    Over those two years, I've written articles, attempted a podcast, and created an online course all trying to start a conversation about this thing everyone seems to be noticing, but we're all (reasonably) afraid to talk about. The elephant in every socially just room.

    A book feels like the perfect way to move this conversation forward.

    Social Justice Dogma?

    People immediately connect SJD to things like "cancel culture," "ideological purity," and "identity politics." SJD is a bigger idea, something more encompassing, within which those ideas might thrive.

    When I published my first essay on the idea back in 2017, I wrote this definition, and it's held up well as the conversation has evolved:

    The social justice dogma is the set of beliefs, stances, and acceptable actions laid down by the authorities within the social justice movement that we hold as incontrovertibly true.
