The bottom line:
Martie writes on a wide range of topics that primarily center on culture, politics & equality. Her work has been featured in Marker on Medium; HuffPost; PopSugar; Scary Mommy, and others, and she's been heard on various NPR affiliates, SiriusXM's "Tell Me Everything w/John Fugelsang," The Listen to Your Mother show (2016), TIFO podcast & more. Martie is editor in chief for Gender from the Trenches - a publication she created here on Medium that amplifies voices from the trans community.
GenX, circa 1974. 80s latchkey kid. Southern born & bred, but liberal AF. Friendly feminist (ain't nobody got time for TERFs or toxic masculinity). Avid researcher. TikTok aficionado. Politics junkie. Ex-vangelical. Descendent of prolific English writer & social critic, Charles Dickens. "Diplomatic." (Or so I'm told.) Scotch-Irish & British family roots. That said, Irish Diplomacy is known as "the ability to tell someone to go to hell in such a way that they look forward to the trip." Sometimes I like animals better than people - especially my 70 lb. Amstaff/Boxer mix lap dog. Likely to be found working alone, trying to keep unlearning whitewashed American history, or upending cultural and gender norms. Spent 30+ years performing in musical theatre, and almost as long in education before deciding to write and create full time. Married for 23 years. Mom of three, *one of each gender.
*If the math doesn't seem to add up: one grown son + one grown daughter + one trans nonbinary teen = one of each gender.
