Or, So Empowered, Yet Oppressed By Everything.
Faced as we are with the news that Everyday Feminism may soon flicker out of existence, leaving a gaping void in our intellectual lives, perhaps it’s time to revisit some of the many offerings to have entertained us, albeit inadvertently:
Feminist “creative” and “multi-dimensional creature” Katherine Garcia attempts to justify her sub-optimal life choices. Things go badly wrong.
Rachel Kuo tells us how to order takeaway in a suitably fretful and intersectional manner.
A “white grrl with dreadlocks” atones for her “whiteness” and “appropriated” hair.
Melissa Fabello is a feminist intellectual and therefore terribly oppressed. How dare you question her?
Fat We Can Fix, The Excuses Are Trickier.
An empowered feminist of girth says not being fat makes you complicit in her oppression.
“Social justice” devotee describes herself to employers as “a political troublemaker,” and wonders why employment is hard to find.
Melissa Fabello shares her interracial dating advice with those less enlightened. Naturally, it’s complicated.
“As a witch,” says Kris Nelson, “it is my responsibility to engage in radical politics.” She’s also clairvoyant and sells magic sea shells.
Oh, you laugh now, but who will scold us when they’re gone?
