What Is Intersectionality?

Intersectionality, just like post-truth, is one of those words that everybody should just know. Yet for some reason, the term is rarely known to anyone other than radical feminists, progressive activists or CRT scholars like myself. Without an understanding of intersectionality however, it’s very hard to understand modern progressivism, which to many laymen doesn’t seem to follow any kind of unified principle.

The definition of intersectionality is as follows:

“The interconnected nature of social categorizations such as race, class, and gender as they apply to a given individual or group, regarded as creating overlapping and interdependent systems of discrimination or disadvantage.”

It boggles my mind to think that a word with such a simple definition isn’t more commonly understood, but then again I’m a graduate in Critical Race Theory, so maybe this stuff is easier for me.

In short, intersectionality ties together many disparate areas of progressivism into a unified theory, explaining how seemingly unrelated victim groups all share a single oppressor – straight, white,  Christian, able-bodied cis-males from the south. Intersectionality explains why Muslims, feminists, the LGBTQ+ community and Black Lives Matter are lumped together by progressives, even though it may seem that these groups don’t particularly get along. Intersectionality explains why Trump, the number one enemy of progressivism, is simultaneously racist, sexist, xenophobic, homophobic, transphobic, Islamophobic, anti-Semitic, and every other ism in the dictionary, even though he has never had much to do with many of these victim groups. When you understand intersectionality, you understand that as an enemy of progress, he must be hateful of every victim group, because they are all related.

Intersectionality brings people together who previously might not have even liked each other, or may have even hated each other, and unifies them behind a single cause – eliminating the power and influence of white males. Each victim group is told that they are oppressed, and is given an explanation of how their lot in life can be traced squarely back to white males, who must bare full responsibility for their inadequacies, as well as numerous past wrongs dating back hundreds of years. This common hatred of white males allows disparate victim groups to bond, unionize and fight together against white supremacy, temporarily putting their differences aside while they conquer white countries. Because of intersectionality, Muslims overwhelmingly vote Democrat, even though many would consider their social views very conservative, and African Americans voice their support for pro-gay, pro-immigrant political candidates, even though the black community has a lot of conflict with both of these groups.

So thank Allah for intersectionality, because without it, we as a movement would be balkanized and wouldn’t have the numbers or common purpose to smash the white male patriarchy, once and for all.

I was thinking about trying on a kilt, because they seem like fun (I try to question everything, such as do I always have to wear pants?), but my friend said this: “If it’s not your culture please don’t do it.” Good point! I won’t wear a kilt, because it’s not my culture. For me to wear a kilt would be cultural appropriation. I am a minimalist anyway, so I feel relieved about not buying something I don’t need. I usually just wear the same pair of jeans every day.

Weren’t jeans invented by Levi Strauss? Sounds like a Jewish name to me. Does this mean wearing jeans can be considered cultural appropriation? I’m going to stick with cargo pants just in case.

How dare you post such evil bigotry here. Your hate speech is intolerable! Love takes all sorts of forms and the LGBTQ+++ community is the most loving of all (except possibly the Jewish community).

Why do Sodomites hate any mention of Sodom?

It is a crying shame that Einstein wasted so many years looking for a unified theory to explain all the workings of the universe. His theory of relativity was a decent effort, as was quantum theory. But, until now, no-one had been able to explain the relationship between quantum physics and relativity.

It turns out that intersectionality was the unified theory Einstein had been looking for all along. It took radical feminists to find the answer: proving once again that womyn are best at everything.

This article makes me look down my nose at all cis white males and breath in fast and deep. This is a sign of my deep humility and my gratitude before the truth of intersectionality.

Great article MDB but the intersectionality Venn diagram only presents half the story of your very poignant Oppression Pyramid. The Venn diagram gives one the impression that all are equally oppressed when we know that some are more oppressed than others and thus are more deserving of money and jobs in academia and government.

You studied CRT (Cathode Ray Tubes)?

Just how old are you anyway.

My vision of you has changed to a male version of Ginsberg, attempting to become the female version.

This story explains for all to see why Obama is in fact Idi Amin without a Nobel.

Black Lives Matter

Are you implying that Obama and/or Idi Amin were somehow bad leaders? Idi Amin was an AMAZING leader, and Obama will hopefully replace Trump once that bigoted pile of crap is impeached.

Everyone needs to be REQUIRED to take classes on Critical Race Theory and Intersectionality EVERY YEAR.
