Huffington Post posted a new video on their website filed under culture which is promoting more psychobabble from the perennially-wounded, hand-wringing left.
You might not have known that white feminists are ignoring intersectionality.
Intersectionality is defined as the interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage. It is”through an awareness of intersectionality, we can better acknowledge and ground the differences among us”.
“Not all feminists who are white are white feminists,” the narrator says in the video, but “most white feminists are white”. I would have said all white feminists were white.
If you’re not confused yet, here is the definition of white feminism:
It is a brand of feminism centered around the ideals and struggles of primarily white women. While not outright exclusive, its failure to consider other women and its preoccupation with Western standards and the problems faced by the “average woman” is often alienating to women of color, non-straight women, trans women, and women belonging to religious or cultural minorities.
“White people don’t have to think about race on a daily basis,” according to one of the narrator’s on the video.
The narrator is wrong. All these people on the left talk about day in and day out is race and how racist we are. They won’t let us forget we’re white for a minute.
“White feminism excludes the experiences of anyone who is not white, cis and straight.” For those who don’t know what “cis” means, it’s those people who are happy with the gender they were born with.
White feminism assumes the way white women experience misogyny is the same way all women experience misogyny. It doesn’t recognize that minority women aren’t closing the wage gap whereas white women are, the narrator complains.
Maybe that’s because of their education and rate of single motherhood.
The narrators then go into police brutality and its effect on feminists.
Did you know the police are brutal to feminists too?
They also delve into white near-nudes as opposed to black near-nudes, white movie stars in the cis white male industry,
If you are a white feminist, “you have a lot to learn,” the narrator concludes.
When I think of all the real suffering of women all over the world and how good the United States is for women, I wonder what is wrong with them.
