Oh man, if I had a nickle for every time I’ve seen a radfem tell another radfem to stop talking about race until we dismantle the patriarchy, I’d still be waiting eagerly for my paycheck on Friday.
Seriously, why. Why is it always the people who have no idea what they’re talking about the ones who feel most comfortable talking?
The patriarchy is the system that oppresses all oppressed groups, not just women. Fighting to dismantle the patriarchy is fighting to end institutionalized racism, institutionalized homophobia, institutionalized ableism, and institutionalized misogyny.
I’d love to see a liberal feminist draw a graph of how she thinks oppressive power structures operate. Lots of circles. nextyearsgirl
