Intersectionality

Black men: White people have oppressed black people for long enough. This needs to end now! We are willing to die for our freedom.

Black womxn: Agreed, but we also want to simultaneously tackle issues that womxn face such as gender inequality, sexism, patriarchy, misogyny, rape culture…

Black men: Shhh my sister, daughter of the soil! Don’t derail this movement. Don’t let white people influence you with these modern things that go against our culture. Let’s focus on the real enemy, which is whiteness.

Black womxn: 😩🙄

White womxn: Come over here! Together let’s fight against gender based violence. Patriarchy must fall! Come on girls!

Black womxn: Yes, finally! Let’s also keep in mind that there are many issues that we face not only as womxn but as black people too. Like systemic racism, police brutality and the war on “drugs” which is actually the new Jim Crow.

White womxn: **silence for 5 minutes**

Let’s talk about cutting tampon tax! Whooo! Let’s rally girls!

Black Trans womxn: Can we talk about the struggles trans womxn face? Can we talk about the on going killings, rapes and ostracism that we face and other queer folks?

(Black/white) Cishet womxn: But you don’t face all the struggles real womxn face, you might have penis privilege.

Black Trans womxn: 😱😭😡
