Intersectional Feminism!


I’m a super proud feminist and unfortunately that comes with a lot of negative connotations and stereotypes. Sadly, a lot of the time, it’s assumed that we’re all men hating and bra burning but this really isn’t the case, feminism comes in lots of different forms and you can’t tar every feminist with the same brush.
Okay, so as I said before, there’s loads of different types of feminism. Sime of these include radical feminism, socialist feminism and intersectional feminism, but there are plenty more.

I identify as an intersectional feminist, which is the most inclusive kind of feminism. It recognises that women’s experiences are bound by race, class, ability, sexuality. It includes anyone that identifies as a woman, and to me, is the most obvious form of feminism to follow. That’s just my personal opinion though, you do you – just don’t tell me trans women, shouldn’t be allowed in women’s spaces and we’re good.    

As Kate Nash said, ‘Feminism is not a dirty word. It does not mean you hate men, it does not mean you hate girls that have nice legs and a tan, and it does not mean you are a bitch or a dyke. It means you believe in equality.’ Feminism shouldn’t be taboo and I'm not going to stop talking about it any time soon, sorry. So, are you a feminist?
