The Blog is Getting a Name Change

29 Sep

Hey wonderful readers,

I’ve been wanting to change my blog name for a while now, but I didn’t know how to (and I’m still figuring it out).

Here’s the deal:

When I started A Womyn’s Worth, I wanted the original spelling of the word “Woman,” but the domain name was taken. So I changed up the spelling to have the title still sound like the title I wanted but with a different spelling.

At the time, I didn’t know that transphobic feminists had been using the word “womyn” to exclude trans people from their movement.

I have NEVER been supportive of anti-trans feminists and do not want to be associated with them.

When I found out about the transphobic use of the term, I was like “Shit! I gotta change the name of my blog,” but I wasn’t sure how to. I have the domain name, the Twitter handle, Facebook page, the Tumblr account, and a few other things that are branded with “Awomynsworth.”

Currently,  I’m slowly figuring out how to rebrand and change the titles on all of these accounts without losing my following or the money I spent on the domain name.

So in the meantime, the domain name will stay the same until I can figure out how to redirect it and my blog will be titled A Woman’s Worth.

Thanks for hanging in there with me, everyone. And I sincerely apologize to anyone that I offended or harmed in using the old title. I’m still learning. I hope that you can forgive my oversight.

Thank you

-Shae

    Wow I thought the spelling was all inclusive support FOR all women – lesbians, trans and femme identifiers alike. I learned something today.
