Katherine Speller is a freelancer writer and staff researcher at Lady Parts Justice.
I'm a simple woman: I like pretty brown-haired dogs and breakfast food.
I've written about politics, reproductive health, LGBT issues, sex and dating and more for places like The Daily Dot, Women’s Health, MTV News, Bustle, Thought Catalog, Medium and more.
In addition to moonlighting as a freelance reporter, writer and editor, I'm currently the staff researcher/junior writer at Lady Parts Justice — a rapid-response reproductive rights messaging hub combining the work of comedians, writers, activists to protect abortion rights. I also serve as the one-woman-news-desk and significantly less-funny commentator for "ReproMadness," the only podcast that deals exclusively with reproductive justice issues.
To some, political correctness provides the safe space needed for people with little power in society to speak about their experiences. To others, like supporters of Donald Trump, it is a weapon that keeps them from expressing their true feelings.
