    another term that, if you don't know it or use it correctly, will result in banishment from liberal groups of people who are the "most tolerant" of us all (unless you disagree with their PC bullshit taken to the 5th dimension)

    Being feminist and gay, feminist and a racial minority, feminist and a furry...I guess...just throw whatever you read on Buzzfeed into the mix and you'll probably be spot on. 

  • They like racism with their sexism

    Intersectional feminism is the idea that the more minority statuses one can rack up, the more oppressed they are.  According to feminism, women are oppressed.  According to intersectional feminism, black women for example are twice as oppressed.   Intersectional feminists often feel that mainstream feminism fails to acknowledge the greater victimization minority women suffer 

    compared to non minority women.

    Intersectional feminism is fake feminism which emphasizes on targeting men while treating women as "godess". Intersectional feminism is biased towards men and toxic to society.

    This term was first used by a Civil Rights Advocate, Kimberle Crenshaw, whilst studying for a Law Degree.  She realised that 'women of colour', were doubly discriminated, for being dark skinned and for being female.

    It's broken down;  Race, Ethnicity, Culture, Gender, Sexuality, Ability, Education, Age and Class.   It has nothing to do with 'fake feminism' and these will affect men too.  It's about recognising that differences can cause discrimination.  If we don't raise these issues, ie people that treat you differently based on your; gender, race, sexuality etc... we'll never be able to ensure that society is equal to all.

    Fake feminism....a flavor they call it. I call it FAKE. Why intersectional? Because slavery, oppression...ok well that takes you back to the original feminism - radical feminism

    We can't help women if we're not in power.

    What is it originally or what did it get hijacked into by the sexism and racism of trans activists? The world as commonly used by liberal feminists and trans activists means feminism should center every group above females oppressed because of their biology. Originally it meant black women and white women faced different kinds of oppression. Trans activists came along and said well, if black women are women, then so are men in dresses and appropriated the term for themselves. For some reason, this isn't acknowledged as racist bullshit because we're not allowed to talk back when the menz in dresses order us to worship and obey them.

    "What exactly is intersectional feminism ?

    Intersectionality was "invented" during a time when feminism was losing support from women outside of the movement's very tight clique. It was the quick, made up solution by upper class, white feminists to answer the charges by minority women that they were being excluded. Feminism began, and still is largely a privileged, white woman movement. They call the shots, and they dictate what feminism does.

    The idea of intersectionality was to introduce other types of "oppression" that women who are not white and upper class might face, into the feminist paradigm. The biggest one was race. Sometimes, but not always, they entertain the idea of class, gender identity and more recently, religion. The reason this is such a hot topic in feminist circles is that this is the only potential opportunity for the growth of feminism, or rather an area where they can restrict the dwindling numbers of women who are willing to call themselves feminist any longer.

    They never, ever, introduce legitimately oppressed or disadvantaged males. EVER. This is the proof that feminism is NOT a movement for full equality as too many self-proclaimed adherents claim. It is a special interest group for women only.

    All men, no matter what their circumstances are, are simply deemed to be "privileged".
