10 Things Every Intersectional Feminist Should Ask On a First Date

Why would anyone want to date such a humorless troll? It begins:

"As a queer femme of color, I keep close relationships with people who go beyond allyship; they’re true accomplices in the fight against white supremacy, queerphobia, and misogyny. If you’re not going to support marginalized folks, then we can’t be friends, let alone date. The personal is political.

Beyond the lovely cushioning, happiness and support that we receive from our platonic relationships (which are, in all honesty, soul-feeding and essential), feminists also date! But there are questions we have to ask before we get close to someone.

The following list of questions is applicable to all relationships — certainly not just cisgender, heterosexual ones: " ...

So fucking pretensious. She basically wants to world overrun by Muslims. She won't care because they're Brown and thus infallible. All the gays will be forcibly and violently mutilated into trans, but that's okay because gays were just "queer" to begin with and this way those transphobic gays will learn a lesson. And we crush capitalism and replace it with a local, organic, free range, anarchic communist caliphate.

Generally I just want someone I'm going to date to be a decent person. I think a lot of people can be pro human rights without being excessive about it. I judge people by their actions and not their preaching because I've met a lot of people who act like they're into human rights but when it comes down to it, they're just as racist/homophobic/sexist as anyone else, they just know how to talk to talk when it doesn't involve actually doing anything good.

"Intersectionality" starts from a common sense notion, namely that oppression can take many different forms, i.e., sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, xenophobia, etc., and therefore the experiences and perspectives of a rich, black, gay male will be different than a poor, white, disabled lesbian, for example. Since most of the social justice movement is comprised of white, cis-gendered, heterosexual females, and usually congregates in places of privilege (college campuses and Tumblr), the idea behind intersectionality is that more of an effort should be made to give voice to the underrepresented and oppressed. This is good.

However, as it is practiced by most of the young people in the modern social justice movement, intersectionality usually means that the person who can claim the most "intersections" is automatically afforded the most adulation and given the loudest megaphone during any conversation, regardless of whether their ideas warrant it.

This is especially problematic because it makes the social justice movement a magnet for narcissists who like getting preferential access to a soapbox without having to rigorously defend any of their ideas.

Also, since white, cis-gendered, heterosexual females (again, the bread and butter of the SJ movement) are immediately outclassed as soon as a person of color enters the room, this has led bored, privileged millennials to actively seek out ways in which they can claim oppression and therefore jockey for a position at the SJ table. Trans-genderism, trans-racialism, trans-ablism, and trans-cognitive are now officially recognized ways for people who were born male, white, healthy or intelligent to appropriate the struggles of women, the non-white, the disabled, or the retarded.

Before you claim this is hyperbole, I once volunteered at a place where a person with two fully functional legs had to be pushed around in a wheelchair by other volunteers because she identified as a paraplegic in order to be on an ADA advisory and activist committee.

A lot of old-time Catholics will recognize this addiction to suffering - if we flog ourselves long enough, deny ourselves in every way, and marinate in our pain, then we will know the sufferings of Christ and will be closer to God.

While the SJWs are virulently anti-Christ they engage in the same purity rituals by collecting their "intersections" and sufferings in order to feel closer to transcendence.

by Anonymousreply 3612/11/2017

[R36] This is a common religious/philosophical/occult practice. Namely, in order to reach enlightenment or Transcendence one needs to deny the physical or fleshly and embrace the spiritual or intellectual. The Gnostics, a school of Greek philosophy which eventually morphed into an early sect of Christianity, which became a major influence on Catholicism, was big on this.

by Anonymousreply 3712/11/2017

I've often wished it was socially acceptable to present a questionnaire like that on a first date, or just hand over a list of absolute dealbreakers and just tell the guy not to waste his time if he meets any of them.

But you can't actually do that, because it's self-righteous and obnoxious and incredibly fucking rude to the other person. You've actually got to let the other person talk about themselves, anything else and it's a harangue rather than a date.

The other reason that intersectionality is bullshit, R30, is that it's all about who has the most hurt feelings, and ignores all the genuinely important issues, the ones that hurt billions of people or destroy millions of lives.

Millions about to lose health insurance? They care more about making sure trans prisoners of color can get hormones at the taxpayer's expense. Tax plan about to destroy the middle class? Something that white cis people worry about. Natural disaster destroys homes and livelihoods? Who cares when Muslim immigrants don't feel welcome. Oceans being destroyed by toxins and garbage and the planetary ecosystem being undermined? Well, how does that affect transwomen of color?

I'm exhausted reading this. It's a decent primer on how super liberal socially conscious millennials think about the world.

It's amazing how the Palestinians get dragged into every list of complaints. Americans have their own problems. I'm cool with the BDS movement if people want to support it, but trying to connect that to other left wing causes (like the women's march/dyke march earlier this year) is fucking ridiculous. There's seven billion people on this planet, more LITERAL HUMAN SLAVES on Earth than any point in history (look it up), and they're wasting energy on this--a problem that isn't getting solved anytime soon. And this girl is suggesting it be brought up during a first date.

Sorry, I'm just frustrated because I see this becoming a bigger wedge issue inside the Democratic party and its such small potatoes compared to the issues Americans are dealing with.

Stuck in traffic yesterday I gave in & turned on npr.

It was a report from a young woman (with vocal fry) talking about how East Asians now identify as “people of color” because they are not white.

Fine.

But how do POC feel about that? I predict conflict between the SJWs who refer to people only as black, brown or white. Because Asians don’t “identify” as white, and they’re not black or brown. (Or at least other brown people don’t think so. )

Eventually these kids will need to learn that people aren’t colors, things are. People are not things. And, literally, no person is “white.” Not even elbinos.

I’m done with that generation. I look forward to the pendulum swing from the next generation....the ones who will suffer real consequences from a Trump White House and will see this BS for what it is.

One problem I have with the term "POC" is that is sets everyone into one of two categories: white and POC.

So ... white people are again the standard by which everyone else is judged. isn't that what they're (the people who encourage usage of POC) trying to get away from? Also, the differences among POC themselves are as great, if not greater, than the differences between whites and POC.

Looking her up the lady isn't even close to what I expected.

My mother is black: half Kenyan, half Indian. My father is white. My skin varies from being a light olive to 3-4 shades darker when I am tan. My hair is brown and naturally wavy-curly. My eyes are brown. I have somewhat non-caucasian features, but my heritage is pretty indecipherable.

On paper I am a minority, but you wouldn’t necessarily know that when you see me. I come from a upper middle class family, I grew up in Switzerland, I got to travel a lot and I speak fluent english and french. In person, I can perform whiteness. I portray European-ness. But I know nothing else.

For years I have struggled with my mixed ethnicity because I don’t feel either Kenyan or Indian at all...

My mother made me white, she denied me half of who I am.

It is deeply sexist. So is Trans and Islam which is also "intersectionalist.". The big progressive message now is: Be sexist, homophobic, anti-science, anti-free speech (i.e. censor intelligent people), start a race war and try to look as ugly as possible.

All you alt-right, neo-fascist, Republican voting trolls who have a problem with altruism or humanity and especially the ones who hate social justice (SJWs)...

It must be very difficult for you when an SJW is celebrated nationally, like Martin Luther King. It must be so confusing for you.

What do you do? Stick your fingers in your ears and close your eyes and wait for it to away?

What if you're a Christian or a Catholic? Jesus was the most famous SJW of all time, how do you deal with that? It must be ghastly.

I think being an ally of an oppressed group is good but when you take over and it becomes more about you than the members of the oppressed group itself you’ve crossed a line.

Once I went to a retreat for GBT men within a larger men’s group. Straight men were allowed to participate and attended as well. While the intent was to focus on the GBT men and their struggle and empowerment, the weekend somehow became more about these straight men dealing with their own homophobia and us helping them feel OK with the gay.

It was really odd feeling marginalized but I think it’s an example of how as allies we can helpful and supportive, but not to take over and make it more about us than them.

by Anonymousreply 19402/17/2018

I think it’s a lot more convenient to discuss homophobia among straight people than it is examine common issues in the gay community.

Anytime someone addresses an issue that is detrimental to the gay community, such as ageism, racism, transphobia, narcissism, etc. someone says, “Well straight people are also——-, so why is that our problem?” Very little is seen as worthy of examination and usually written off as internalized homophobia by whoever brings it up.

I stopped taking feminists seriously when they began putting trans women above biological women, and when they started licking the ass of Islam.

No liberal/progressive group should support any religion of any kind, but especially Islam. I wonder how feminists who are atheists feel about it, maybe they're too afraid to speak up in fear of being labeled a racist.

Also, I don't hate trans women but they are NOT real women. They need to form their own movement instead of making feminism all about themselves. One of the many reasons feminism was started was because women had to fight for their reproductive rights, something that does not affect trans "women".

[quote][bold]Intersectionality[/bold] is a term that was coined by American professor Kimberlé Crenshaw in 1989. The concept already existed but she put a name to it. The textbook definition states:

[quote][italic]"The view that women experience oppression in varying configurations and in varying degrees of intensity. Cultural patterns of oppression are not only interrelated, but are bound together and influenced by the intersectional systems of society. Examples of this include race, gender, class, ability, and ethnicity.”[/italic]

[quote]In other words, certain groups of women have multi-layered facets in life that they have to deal with. There is no one-size-fits-all type of feminism. For example, I am a black woman and as a result I face both racism and sexism as I navigate around everyday life.

[quote]"Intersectionality" starts from a common sense notion, namely that oppression can take many different forms, i.e., sexism, racism, homophobia, transphobia, classism, xenophobia, etc., and therefore the experiences and perspectives of a rich, black, gay male will be different than a poor, white, disabled lesbian, for example.

"Intersectionality" starts from the idiotic notion that we're competing in an oppression olympics and in order to be validated, you have to assert that you've been just as oppressed as other people.

It screams for attention where none is deserved. It hectors people with self-aggrandizing awareness, yet fails to recognize the underlying hypocrisy of such claims.

by Anonymousreply 24912/18/2018

As a practical matter, intersectionality says, "unless you are talking about racism, you're not a feminist."

The SJWs who assert this meanwhile have the voting rights, reproductive rights, and other hard-fought rights that were obtained by feminists who were talking about sexism, not racism.

by Anonymousreply 25012/18/2018

I should add that intersectionality is progressivism for our narcissistic social media age. It's been determined that, unless you are an oppressed trans woman of color, you have lost the oppression Olympics and so your voice should not be listened to. But in the social media age, all we care about is our voice being heard, so shouting the intersectional creed permits one to speak and be heard.

This callout culture. If you are a white girl and want to hold forth about wrongs, intersectionality gives you a bullhorn, and permits you to show yourself not like those other horrible white women who are not as woke as thou.

Yes, r251. See also: TERF

And I am still waiting for someone to explain to me why one can self-identity as the opposite sex -- and demand society treat them as the opposite sex -- and yet one cannot do the same in regards to race. I'd argue that race is a far more nebulous category than gender.

Not wrong. Hilarious.

Yes, r251.

This whole thing about white women being racist in the 1970s is a myth. Second Wavers revered & championed Barbara Jordan, Shirley Chisholm, Alice Walker, Maya Angelou, Sojouner Truth, etc.

White women did enjoy more access to education & money, of course, because of our racist society. But they used their education & money to help ALL women...poor, black, middle-class, immigrant, white, rich, disabled, etc.

Second Wavers outlawed domestic violence & legalized abortion, among other things. They weren’t perfect ...who is? But at least they valued learning...and helping others.

White women still have to deal with being devalued by white men. It’s not like straight white men are mean to everyone except white women. They’re mostly awful to their wives.

Yes indeed, we too use "cookies." Don't you just LOVE clicking on these things on every single site you visit? I know we do! You can thank the EU parliament for making everyone in the world click on these pointless things while changing absolutely nothing. If you are interested you can take a look at our privacy/terms or if you just want to see the damn site without all this bureaucratic nonsense, click ACCEPT and we'll set a dreaded cookie to make it go away. Otherwise, you'll just have to find some other site for your pointless bitchery needs.
