Problems with third wave feminism
#11
RE: Problems with third wave feminism
I thought third-wave feminism WAS about all this inclusive "not just white women, also race issues, LGB, trans etc etc". Guess not...

Anyway I agree with anyone who wants to support more than one cause and deal with gender, race and sexuality issues all at the same time. I don't think much needs to be said on that, I think most millennials feel all three are areas of needed improvement in society.

The only problem I really have with "modern feminism" or "internet feminism" is that it's very "my way or the high-way". It's all so tightly policed. Any slight disagreement, even if what the person is saying is a perfectly logical and reasonable disagreement, is branded as "bigotry" just because it's a different opinion. The irony is, thinking like that is in itself bigotry.

"Ironically like the nativist far-Right, which despises multiculturalism, but benefits from its ideas of difference to scapegoat the other and to promote its own white identity politics; these postmodernists, leftists, feminists and liberals also use multiculturalism, to side with the oppressor, by demanding respect and tolerance for oppression characterised as 'difference', no matter how intolerable."
