I am not your target audience

Yesterday, I received an email from the Michigan Women's Music Festival.

Several years ago, in my innocent youth or whatever, I signed up on the Michfest forums, believing that since feminism and trans activism are natural allies, even the most hardcore TERF (trans-exclusionary radical feminist) could be reasoned with. I was, of course, wrong - before they even discovered that I am trans I was accused of being a 'fun-fem' among other things, due to not hating men enough for their liking. Afterward the shit REALLY hit the fan. But I digress. The point being that in signing up on their forum, I apparently gave them my email address.
