The Trump administration is trying to erase trans people. Their new definition of “sex” is factually incorrect: there have never been just two genders or biological sexes. 0.6% of the US population is transgender, and 1.7% is intersex—having chromosomes different than XX or XY, possessing “ambiguous” genitalia at birth, or otherwise existing outside the narrow range of medicalized gendered bodies. The gender binary is a myth, and we have to do our part to dismantle it. . . . #transrightsarehumanrights #transwomenarewomen #womensgathering #communelife #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving

Ever been curious about what living at Twin Oaks might be like? Well, we are doing a Twin Oaks Community Day available to Women's Gathering attendees, on 8/20, the Monday after the Gathering! Dip your toes into community life with a tour, a lunch, and a chance to garden or process food for next winter. We are always looking for new members! There is no cost for the day, and you can come for part or all of the activities. If you know now that you want to come, it would be great to hear from you. But also it's okay to decide during the weekend. You can also always read more about Twin Oaks at www.twinoaks.org.

In 2016, Twin Oaks member Nina, a highly skilled carpenter, taught a workshop on carpentry basics: cutting and measuring. Here, organizer Julia uses the skills she learned in that workshop to fix up a desk.

In 2016, @roxglick asked Women's Gathering attendees to describe how they smash patriarchy. She published the results on @bust_magazine. Over the next couple days, we'll be posting some of our favorite photos from that project. Here's Women's Gathering organizer @cynical.elle.woods getting her intersectional feminist theory on. . . . #smashpatriarchy #womensgathering #towomgath #womensgathering18 #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving #twinoakscommunity

"I smash patriarchy by seeing the beauty in everyone + believing that all strangers are friends I have never met..." . . . #smashpatriarchy #womensgathering #towomgath #womensgathering18 #intentionalcommunity #intentionalliving #twinoakscommunity
