Have you noticed how the sexy sexy liberal white feminism totally partakes in that thing where they cut up women’s bodies into easily consumable sex objects to sell their products
Gotta make sure we’re sexy and consumable or else its not really liberation
why ‘white’ feminism I thought feminism was just that feminism and that we were all fighting for equal rights so please tell me what is the difference between white feminism and normal feminism?
"please tell me what is the difference between white feminism and normal feminism"
honey, go do some research
learn about the fact that there are different factions of feminism and some of them tend to be more profitable than others (and those more profitable forms tend to be white-led with an emphasis on making feminism sexier, less threatening and more accommodating to men).
"white feminism" is called as such because for as long as feminism has been a thing, the mainstream version of it has been comprised of white liberal feminists who are more interested in being part of a system rather than dismantling it, which is inherently exclusionary to any women who aren’t white ( and cis and straight and able bodied and so on).
when people talk about white feminism, they’re talking about the kind of feminism that continues to exclude certain kinds of women, that perpetuate ideas about feminism that go no deeper than “personal revolutions” i.e. sexual liberation, personal success. the kind of feminism that acts like being a high powered CEO is liberation, ignoring that capitalism is dependent on the suffering of women, usually poor women of color, in the United States and internationally.
White feminism is, unfortunately, “normal feminism.” it’s the kind of feminism that is most popular and it’s most popular because it’s non-threatening to men, doesn’t threaten the systems in place, puts an emphasis on women’s sexuality, is overwhelmingly white and hyper-feminine, often racist, queerphobic and cissexist.
and before you ask, no, you’re not automatically a White Feminist for being white and a feminist. but you have to actively work against that and understand your place of privilege within feminism. you have to understand that what is presented as mainstream feminism now is a watered down version of what should be a revolutionary political ideology and that it still clings to its roots in racism.
do some research.
