This is probably an unpopular opinion here, but somehow I feel more brave to say it on here than the old GC.
Intersectionalism is the worst thing to happen to feminism. It's almost like it was created on purpose by people against feminism and women to divide us and crumble from within.
I first peaked when I saw libfems demanding and insisting that we need to include trans women in our feminism. Something about that just sat so wrong with me, and little by little I began opening my eyes to what's really going on.
The other part of intersectionalism I still see persisting here, and it's racial. I am so so sick of seeing people say "white feminism" and "white women" this and "white women" that. First of all, it's just fucking racist okay. Second of all, it's completely counterproductive. Feminism has always been for all women. From the very beginning. I don't care if some women had more than others at some point, the goal of feminism is to serve ALL WOMEN.
Not only does this divide us but it also hinders true feminism and liberation. Look at how libfems went from fuck the hijab to the intersectionalist "it's a choice". When the hijab is not a choice it is a symbol of oppression. There is a whole section of porn with a hijab fetish. It's not a garment for modesty or anything that actually is positive for a woman.
Anyway, that's my rant. I feel like whoever thought this stupid ideology up succeeded in ruining feminism and our unity. I know a lot of you will disagree. Also before you call me "just another white feminist" (barf), I am an immigrant from a country where women are still subjected to some dumb gender roles and I always saw the US as being more feminist for all women. Before you try calling out "white women" realize we are not a fucking monolith and you are only talking to some made up "white woman feminist" straw man that is in your head.
