Towards a feminist BRCA+ community

I am frustrated by the lack of an explicitly feminist discourse on BRCA mutations and the absence of an explicitly feminist BRCA+ support network. I often feel out of place within the BRCA+ community, which seems to suffer from the same problems with pinkwashing and relentless optimism as the larger breast cancer community. There must be other BRCA+ feminists out there, but I haven’t found them yet. I hope that with this blog some of them will find me.
