Problems with third wave feminism
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."

Fly over and see for yourself.
Don't come by boat though.
We don't like foreign boats.
I'm scared of boats. Hey have you ever been to Coober Peady?

You want some opals?
Just another outback town.
