A Jewish survivor walks into a Sexual Assault Awareness support group...
Feminism has a PR problem. What, to me, is clearly about empowering women to expect and demand equal treatment, some people weirdly think is about "hating men."
What, to me, is clearly about encouraging women to think for themselves and make their own choices -- whether that means breastfeeding or bottle feeding; pursuing a career in physics or fashion; filing charges against an attacker (regardless of what you were wearing) or just seeking support within your community -- some people think is about imposing conformity and restricting critical thinking.
Yes, I’m talking about “intersectionality”: the idea that, in order to be a “real feminist,” you have to believe in all the exact same social causes as I do – regardless of your own thoughts, knowledge or experience on the topic. According to Everyday Feminism, I am not a “real feminist,” because I’m not convinced that “medical fat shaming” is a problem in our healthcare system. Even though I am very vocal about my feminist viewpoints (as illustrated by posts like 10 Things to Remind Your Daughter to Do Every Day That Are More Important Than Brushing Her Hair;The REAL Reason Women "Spend So Much Time in the Restroom"; and The Unbreakable Kimmy Schmidt Gif All Women Need to See ASAP)… I’m not “intersectional enough.”
And, sure, I understand that the feminist LGBT community faces some unique challenges. I see the value of examining the challenges black women face that I don’t. Feminism is far from a simple cause.
But. It is harmful to conflate completely unrelated political issues with feminism. Especially when the “politically correct” viewpoint is toxic to both feminism and the women it’s trying to help.
The best example of this is the anti-Israel stance imposed upon so many normal feminists, by radical feminists, in the name of “intersectionality.”
In November 2015, the National Women’s Studies Association voted to endorse the boycott, divestment and sanctions movement against Israel. Even though Israel happens to be the most progressive nation in the Middle East. It is committed to the Convention on the Elimination of All Forms of Discrimination against Women international treaty. It's guaranteed gender equality since the establishment of the state in 1948. Women in Israel actively participate in Israeli life. The Israeli Declaration of Independence declares: “The State of Israel will ensure complete equality of social and political rights to all its inhabitants irrespective of religion, race or sex.”
Israel was the third country in the world to elect a female prime minister. Its parliament is 18% female -- which equals that of the US, and is well above the Arab world's average of 6%. (Also worth noting: Israel is considered to be more tolerant of sexual minorities than any other Middle Eastern country, and even recognizes gay marriage.)
Meanwhile, Palestine is plagued by spousal and child abuse, rape, incest, and "honor" killings of women.
This is not feminism.
But let's go ahead and pretend that's not something I, as a feminist, "should" think about. You know. In the name of "intersectionality." The fact remains, the Israel-Palestine conflict is an incredibly complicated issue, with an abundance of misinformation on both sides.
For one, there is no “illegal occupation.” There is a lot of history that most people don't fully understand, or even necessarily know about. Chances are, if you think that everything Israel does is right/wrong, you have no idea what is going on in the Middle East.
In fact! A board member of the Michigan State University Hillel recently told me (anonymously), “I’m Jewish, and I’m generally pro-Israel. But it would be pretty ignorant and ridiculous of me to just blindly support everything Israel does, and I have plenty of problems with their policies.”
It’s wonderful to see someone who subscribes to independent thinking, rather than a more tribal/mob mentality.
(Also worth noting: the same board member also told me that the MSU Hillel no longer lists its board members online. “It’s possible to find out who we are, but we don’t make the information public anymore, because too many of us were being harassed and targeted.” But more on that later.)
For two, Palestinians attack Israel every day. Even the "small" matter of "kids throwing rocks" at Israeli citizens and soldiers is a serious consideration for Israel -- because "rocks" can mean anything from stones to bricks, and "throwing" can mean "slinging." People have died from "kids throwing rocks," which Palestinians tout as a "nonviolent" form of protest.

If I believe that Israel has a right to defend itself… does that make me not a feminist? Does that make me unwelcome at feminist talks and events? Or, to use an extreme example, does that mean I need to silence a part of myself in order to attend rape survivors’ support groups?
As it turns out, yes.
A Columbia University student group called No Red Tape (NRT), which aims to raise sexual assault awareness and end rape culture on campus, recently – in the name of “intersectionality” – adopted an official “anti-Israel stance.” Which means that NRT is
It is shocking -- shocking! -- to me that Students for Justice in Palestine (SJP), a group that receives funding and logistical support from American Muslims for Palestine, an offshoot of the Hamas-supporting Islamic Association of Palestine, have managed to hijack and politicize a movement that was mean to support survivors of horrific assaults regardless of politics.
Meanwhile... there's been no corresponding "intersectionality" or compassion from radical feminists for students who have suffered discrimination, harassment and other antisemitism on college campuses across the nation. For example, here is a (non-comprehensive) list of antisemitic incidents that took place on college campuses in 2015, as reported by the Anti-Defamation League:
Swastikas at UC Davis, 2015.
It's weird that in 2015, the year we obsessed over microaggressions, these total major MACROaggressions were taking place all across the country, and the "intersectional" feminists said nothing. (Except that pro-Israel feminists were no longer welcome in their movement.)
But it's not that weird. Because this kind of "intersectionality" isn't about empowering all women. It's not about fighting prejudice. It's about imposing conformity and restricting thought.
Let's look at another example of an extremely complicated issue that introduces a conflict between "intersectionality" and feminism:
Droves of young men from African and Arab nations are settling throughout Europe, fleeing violence and bad conditions in their home countries. These men come from very different cultures, where women are seen as property, exposed skin is seen as an invitation to do whatever you want, and violence against women frequently goes unpunished.
Naturally, this can -- and has! -- caused problems for women in Europe. For example, 2% of Germany's population now consists of recent immigrants... and on New Year's Eve, a group of over 400 (some sources say over 1,000) of these men assembled a mass attack against women. They formed coordinated rings around more than 600 different women in public places and robbed, groped, raped and assaulted.
This is horrifying enough... but almost equally disgusting is that the attacks were covered up for at least five days. According to The Daily Beast, the authorities and media were choosing between stirring racial tension and observing these women’s rights. By covering it up, they were effectively putting more women's lives in danger.
Germany is far from the only country that, fearful of "stigmatizing migrants as potential rapists," has put women in harm's way. (Just "stay at arm's length from male strangers," advised Henriette Reker, the mayor of Cologne.)
Protesting crimes against women in Germany.
It was later revealed that this coordinated attack... is suspected to be a "game." It might even have a name. According to the BBC, an official report describes "taharrush gamea," an "Arabic gang-rape game," in which an inner circle of men attacks, assaults an even rapes a woman, while an outer ring of men distracts onlookers from noticing or intervening. The practice is described in a short and relatively recent Wikipedia post. Here is what it looks like (TRIGGER WARNING - this is legitimately disgusting and disturbing, and will probably ruin your day, if not haunt you for the rest of your life):
While reading more about the attacks online (it is almost too shocking to be believable), I stumbled upon this comic, which was clearly written by someone who also recognizes the problem with "intersectionality":
Before "intersectionality" became the atrocity that it is today, would you see leaders dancing on egg shells instead of protecting women? Probably not. Between 2009-2011, Norway experienced a series of rapes that was attributed to immigrants who were clueless about Western values. So Norway responded. By 2011, it established voluntary educational programs that teach cultural norms to immigrants and seek to prevent sexual and other violence.
Even then, it was controversial to "suggest that all brown men were potential rapists." Forget common sense! Forget that these particular brown men come from an extremely conservative society that is largely segregated! Forget that they have never seen public displays of affection. Forget that (as per the New York Times) “people from some parts of the world have never seen a girl in a miniskirt, only in a burqa.”
Forget that, before any student ever does any kind of study abroad program -- even one that only lasts a week or two! -- they are inundated with orientations, information and workshops to teach them what to expect and how to stay safe in the new culture. (I studied abroad in Australia and Oxford -- two places full of white people who speak English, and I still benefitted from such orientations.) It is a bizarre double standard to say, "Yeah, it's fine to tell American students who are going to Morocco for two weeks how the culture works, how gender roles are different, and even how to dress in public -- but it's totally not okay to tell African/Arab people who are going to Europe for the rest of their life what to expect and how to transition more smoothly."
During orientation, I learned that I would be hunting camels, kangaroos, bush turkeys and other wildlife. I was also taught what to do and not do while hunting -- both for my personal safety, and to ensure I showed proper respect to the Matru people.
Programs like the ones in Norway, while probably not sufficient to address what's happening in Europe in 2016 (#taharrush), are beneficial to everyone! They help educate newcomers on ways to be more successful in their new lives, socially and professionally. They connect migrants with opportunities and resources in the community. And they protect unsuspecting women from harm.
And, again, sure! It is important to look at feminism as it affects people of different races and sexualities. But right now, we have this weird situation where feminist values and "cultural tolerance" are in direct contradiction with one another. Paralyzed by fear of "intersectional" feminists and "political correctness," politicians and the media are pushing the conflict under a rug. Which, again, is toxic to everyone. It means measures are not being taken to fight misogyny and protect women. And it means that people who could truly benefit from a program like Norway's are, instead, left to their own devices.
There is no good reason programs like this should:
a) Be considered "controversial"
b) Not be happening everywhere.
Except that everyone's scared of looking "racist." Everyone's scared of not being "intersectional" enough. But I think I can pretty objectively say, if the New Year's rapes in Germany didn't shock you to your core -- if they didn't make you seriously think about the "intersection" of immigration and women's safety -- then you're not thinking. You're blindly following dangerous and counterproductive dogma.
The TL;DR is that "intersectionality" is out of control. It selectively promotes tolerance of some...while isolating and excluding those who don’t agree.
Why did feminism stop being about choice? When did it go from uniting a diverse group of people to support one cause… to forcing a diverse group to agree on every cause, or be condemned?
I’m not a real feminist, anymore, because I support freedom of speech on college campuses.
I’m not a real feminist anymore, because I haven’t decided how comfortable I am sharing a locker room with people with penises. That doesn’t make me a bigot – it makes me a modest girl who has had more than her fair share of encounters with dangerous creeps, and who is undecided about what is clearly a very complicated issue that affects women of different nationalities, religions and backgrounds differently.
I’m not a real feminist, anymore, because I eat burritos and Chinese food without fully understanding and appreciating the culture, history and colonization of these foods. (To make matters worse, I’ve also attended a few yoga classes. SO MUCH APPROPRIATION!)
You know who else isn’t a real feminist? Taylor Swift. In spite of being the most powerful woman in the music industry – in spite of philanthropic efforts, and in spite of standing firm in her belief that her talent, not her sexiness or sexuality, will bring her success. In spite of bombass quotes like these:
... She’s not a real feminist because, according to Everyday Feminism, "every love interest that Taylor has ever had — both in real life and in her videos — has been a straight, cis, able-bodied, fit, middle-to-upper class, white dude." (Forget who she's actually attracted to! Forget that the videos are about her own personal experiences! Forget artistic integrity! She should date gay, trans, disabled, overweight, poor black dudes, right?)
She’s not a real feminist because she’s “not real friends” with her background dancers – a very racially diverse group of talented women. The women of color who dance with her are, allegedly, “token minorities.”
And she’s not a real feminist because she failed to rewrite history in a recent music video set in Africa… and instead donated all her proceeds to the African Parks Foundation of America.
Writing this article, I've realized something. The problem isn't that I'm not "intersectional" enough. It's that this brand of "intersectionality" is the opposite of feminism. If you truly can't accept that some of my ideas are different from yours -- and that I don't necessarily have to agree that your pet cause "should" be at the forefront of feminism -- then you are the one who is not a real feminist.

I suggest that you look up the term, intersectionality before writing a post about it. The term, intersectionality was coined by Black Feminist, Kimberely Crenshaw in 1989 to talk about how various types of oppression intersection to oppress others. http://www.telegraph.co.uk/women/womens-life/10572435/Intersectional-feminism.-What-the-hell-is-it-And-why-you-should-care.html For example, the plight of Black and other non White women is intersectional. Non White women go through both racism(due to their racial backgrounds being different from the dominant society) and sexism and if these women happen to be queer identified(meaning LGBT), they go through homophobia, transphobia and even classism. Understanding intersectionality is a must because there are other types of women out there besides White women and women of all races need their issues to be discussed too.
4/18/2016 10:49:17 am
I'm well aware of what intersectionality is supposed to mean -- and I agree that it is important to look at issues through an intersectional lens.
8/21/2016 12:20:09 am
Stop. Just stop talking. Your lily whiteness is blinding you from a reality that runs deeper than the comforting echo of your victim hood ideology. Your discomfort with intersectionality derives from you - white lady - not occupying the head and center of a movement that white women have used to advance their interests in the name of all women. Kind if like the white man's burden of manifest destiny except with a sweet ring to it. It must be nice to be white and removed from the consequences of living in a world where ones identity as a woman is separable from the struggles, issues, and yes the men who are part of us. Just shut your white mouth, you embarrass yourself.

Intersectionality is a farce; there is no such thing as "feminism for all women," because the issues women face are completely different and at times diametrically opposed depending on the culture they live in. Thus, under the pretext of treating all women "equally," intersectionality must privilege the "more marginalized" voices at the expense of - and often in direct opposition to - the majority voices (or as Orwell put it, "some animals are more equal than others.")
12/8/2016 01:50:18 pm
Marxist Feminists are one of the only groups criticising Intersectionality in academic journals, etc. Your post makes no sense.
10/29/2021 08:12:29 pm
Your comment makes less sense and more like a dialogue.
With due respect, I think you missed the point of the blog post. She acknowledges the general value of an intersectional lens. However, the gist of the essay is to highlight the actual abuses of intersectionality.
4/21/2016 07:37:40 pm
Well Taylor Swift can take heart because Aziz Ansari is the new target. Apparently he should have casted an Indian woman as his love interest in Master Of None. It doesn't matter that explained that he didn’t set out to cast someone White, auditioned people of all ethnic backgrounds, and wanted to cast the person he seemed to have the best chemistry with to sell this huge relationship arc. It doesn't matter than "in the end, Noel blew them away." It doesn't matter that the writing is being pulled from his own real current relationship with a White woman. It apparently doesn't even matter that many South East Asians resonate with this, as interracial relationships are rarely depicted this way in the media.
8/25/2016 05:32:20 pm
How can anyone take these people seriously? I wouldn't even call them feminist. Seems that the whole point of intersectional feminism is to complain about how much of a victim they are, shut down conversations when people disagree with them, and to attack the viewpoints of white people, which includes calling them derogatory names. Why would anyone take any of that seriously?
8/25/2016 09:34:37 pm
There are a number of wonderful critiques of the regressive left; this is one of the more useful, as it critique's Marcuse's concept of "liberating tolerance": http://heterodoxacademy.org/2015/09/23/how-marcuse-made-todays-students-less-tolerant-than-their-parents/

8/24/2016 11:36:58 am
People like the woman posting in your comments section just dismiss any type of disagreement as "whiteness" instead of actually addressing your arguments. I suppose dissent and disagreement are not tolerated by intersectional feminists.
1/14/2017 03:33:08 pm
I don't think the poster wants to address any arguments, just to attack the author of the article and sadly to air her racial bigotry on here. Attacking someone's race or their skin colour is not feminist, there's a different term altogether for that...
8/25/2016 02:43:20 pm
You are seriously my hero. This stuff drives me so insane you don't even know. I'm pretty damn left on most topics, but this PC 2.0 Social Media totalitarianism is unbelievable. Islam is storming the planet like White Walkers from GOT, Far Right nutters are stockpiling weapons, and the Left is whining about "a white girl (becky in their terms) complimented me on my curly hair and I felt triggered!". Keep up the amazing work. Everyday Feminism and Twitter's "medium.com" seem to be the worst, though Huffpo is certainly in the mix. I'm a Hillary supporter, but there are days where I wake up and wish Trump would WIN, just to create some REAL busy work for these morons. Then they will get what actual racism, sexism, and general "phobia" look like. Or they can just keep on keeping on and attacking their ALLIES like Aziz Ansari or Matt Damon. That is also what I find repulsive. They NEVER post articles like "9 Ways to Expose the KKK" or "5 Ways to Help Hillary Win". It's always "8 ways to make liberal allies uncomfortable" or "5 Things that White Liberals Say about Race that You Should Not Allow". They spend WAY more time attacking people who are basically their allies than they do going after their actual enemies. Fuck them all. If I was a racist, sexist Facsist, I would ENCOURAGE the modern SJWs as they are likely to only produce a backlash and extend sexism and racism for decades more...
8/25/2016 04:02:42 pm
While women and men forage the world for sustenance, security, tranquility, and alliance with others, SJW children like the author of this garbage heap, find ever-creative ways to center themselves and their victim-hood and to escape scrutiny of their own shortcomings and unearned privilege and protection. I enjoy watching the greasefire-fueled immolation of white middle-class feminists who have time on their hands to mimic the intersectional struggles of other women.

I've been thinking this way for a while now. Social justice under the guise of interesctionality seems to have become a way to drum up outrage and gather people who feel powerless and disenfranchised into a mob and aim them at the sinner of the day. I've lost my idealism about achieving a sisterhood with women because of how awful some feminists are to other women. I hesitate to even call myself a feminist now because I don't follow any of the common party lines and disagree on what seem to be some really essential topics. I've considered myself a feminist since before I even knew the word, but seeing what's happening in mainstream feminism today is disgusting. And with the migrant issue: I have friends from Sweden who have told me the horror stories of what's been happening to women and how liberals care way more about appearing racist than about women's actual safety. This fear of appearing a bigot is leading young girls to bully another young girl into accepting a transgender "girl's" harassment in the locker room. And the attacks on race are getting worse, from either side. I've been called a racist just for disagreeing on Twitter with a person of color on an entirely unrelated issue!
1/14/2017 03:08:51 pm
It's hard to find a feminist group that that focusses on gender equality and isn't overwhelmed by extreme-political-correctness nowadays. It is important to make sure that feminism includes all groups, but unfortunately "intersectionality" is being used by those with agendas that have less to do with women's equality and more to do with racial hatred or misandry. "Racist", "white feminist", "male privilege" etc. are often used to shut down discussions, or silence anyone who disagrees with them.
11/21/2016 08:47:12 pm
I am waiting for intersectionality to eat itself. Bring of the fourth wave, quick, while there are still actually feminists alive.
11/21/2016 09:18:34 pm
Intersectionality seems to be immolating itself now. I don't put too much stock in the idea that the regressive left drove voters to Trump, as he received roughly the same number of votes as McCain in '08 and Romney in '12, but they certainly didn't win many friends among moderates and independents, and the far-left's antics make it easy for conservatives to paint universities with a broad brush.
1/24/2017 08:15:32 pm

Intersectionality is racist
2/15/2017 12:25:14 pm
Wonderful post! I really appreciate your clear insights and well presented arguments. Bookmarked!
2/17/2017 06:41:54 am
I believe you and I agree with you. The anti-white racism going on nowadays in the name of feminism sickens me. I don't agree with bigotry or racial hatred in any form and have stood up for people of all colors because it's the right thing to do, even at personal risk. Yet I have been accused of racism because I don't believe that all black people are innocent angels and I won't kowtow to "white privilege" and white guilt. I was severely harassed when I was young by a black boy who targeted me because I was white, I know because he straight out told me so. And one of my best friends told me how one of her friends was gang raped by migrants but the police wouldn't do anything out of fear of being accused of racism. Feminism needs to go back to giving a crap about women over PC BS and allow us to acknowledge the reality of racial hatred, racism, and misogynist cultural traits as a universal possibility that no group is exempt from. This doesn't mean I agree with any conservative racists or look for an excuse to discriminate against anyone, but I think if we're going to decry racism in one group, the principle should hold true for all groups. Every group is capable of racism, but that never makes it all right.
1. So over people calling bullshit on Taylor Swift. 2. The main problem I have with "intersectionality" and why I stay away from it; Intersectionality says, "If you don't experience MY sexism problems, then you don't care about me or real feminism." When you made the comment about fat shaming and medical culture, I thought, "She probably doesn't buy it or understand it because she is not fat or hasn't experienced it." I am going to assume that if I could present to you a very clear case for it, you are intelligent enough to understand it exists. But I also don't think you have to agree with it and fight for it if it doesn't affect you. I'm also incredibly tired of "white" people being blamed for all the problems happening to minorities and how "white feminism" isn't real feminism. Because A. Minorities are just that, a very small part of the population that have different problems that "white" people might not face and should not be held accountable for. And 2. It is proven that the vast majority of "white" people in the U.S. will never have a meaningful relationship with a minority, which means they will never be faced with let alone have to understand what minorities encounter. Which is to say, WE ALL could use a lesson in understanding that our world is not someone else's and we don't all face the same problems.

You can't tell taylor swift shes not a real feminist. She supports equal rights to men and women. Bam feminist. Her dating life doesn't mean shit to her being a feminist or not. She has dated a lot of guys, but she doesn't go into the relationship expecting to have sex and leave. She tries to make it work but her expectations or something with her don't fit to the guy. We don't know if its her that wants to get serious and the guy doesn't or if its the other way around or if she has these jealousy flips that guys can't handle. No idea why her relationships don't work but they do at times last a while. No right to claim shes not a feminist. That's like when Christians tell other Christians they aren't real Christians.

2/6/2020 07:39:36 am
I think you should call yourself the Happy, White Liberal Feminist Talent. It's clear that you define feminism by your whiteness, your middle-classness, your privileged American exceptional self. Claim that and stop trashing discourses that define feminism as being against ALL FORMS OF OPPRESSION, not just those that happen to inconvenience privileged white women like you. Just claim it. Be honest and say you don't give a damn about other bodies, or other people's other struggles. You don't give a damn about the how mass incarceration and U.S. military adventurism around the globe has devastated other people's life so that white middle class women like you can parade themselves as being special and exceptional and "interesting". Just be honest. And that way people will respect you rather than envy your (which is what you secretly want) or simply ignore you and keep you the hell away from legitimate feminist discourses.
2/6/2020 09:39:16 am
Oh wow, it's so very rare to get an honest response from an intersectional. It's great to finally see that your kind of feminism is about excluding women, which is what you claim "white feminism" does, which makes you the same. Have a great day. ☺
2/6/2020 10:00:30 am
Susanna, EXACTLY! My feminism doesn't exclude women, and it DOES include facts, data, research, and evidence.
2/6/2020 09:46:54 am
I wonder.... Have you ever met any young people at all? They all believe themselves to be special, exceptional, and interesting. And how does US military power, that impoverishes people in the US, make white women "interesting"?
3/20/2020 06:08:39 am
glad to read this article..I notice there’s sooo many women starting to recognize that there’s a serious attack on women's rights coming at us from all directions- the right and make no mistake shots are being fired very much from the left too.
3/21/2020 11:56:53 am
Seriously. I'm all about empowerment and try not to obsess over the ways in which I'm "oppressed".... But undoubtedly, factually, my oppression is sex-based. It is because I have female anatomy, not because I "think like a woman" and sometimes wear dresses and lipstick.
