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 HBOC 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.
