Fun fact: March is Endometriosis Awareness Month. Less fun fact: I have it, and it's not a party.
Earlier this month, Vogue published an essay by Lena Dunham about her decision to have a full hysterectomy (she's also got the endo). When I mentioned this to my partner, he groaned, because well...Lena Dunham. I get it, she's a polarizing figure. Her show was problematic on a number of levels. But, in response to her story, several news outlets responded by calling her decision irrational. And ill-informed. And that pissed me off.
So I wrote this essay. It was just published by 12th Street Journal. Read it here.
