Infighting Among the Feminists

Thank God for lefty Facebook friends. They post the funniest shit. In a section fittingly titled GroupThink, Jezebel has a post entitled This Is What I Mean When I Say “White Feminism”, wherein the author demands that white feminists prostrate themselves to their moral superiors on the victimhood ladder. She even has a handy Venn diagram to illustrate where her certain feminists fall on the oppressor scale. I’ll quote the section that’s bolded, because that means it’s important.

White feminism is a set of beliefs that allows for the exclusion of issues that specifically affect women of colour. It is “one size-fits all” feminism, where middle class white women are the mould that others must fit. It is a method of practicing feminism, not an indictment of every individual white feminist, everywhere, always. [Emphasis in the original]

It’s hilarious to watch a movement that seeks to dispel stereotypes about women cracking because of gamesmanship and infighting.
