Many months ago, we became aware of a progressive site we are still not 100% sure is NOT satire. The articles seemed to be written in the correct progressive spirit, and yet often seemed so extreme that we couldn’t be sure they weren’t taking the piss out of genuine progressives like us.
We refer, of course, to Everyday Feminism which often makes The Guardian seem like a stream of Friedrich von Hayek’s right-wing consciousness in comparison. Often-times, the articles in Everyday Feminism begin with an outrageous headline or question to entice the reader to read on. Left-wing click bait, basically. Lacking a comments section, however, it’s hard to know how the average EF readers feels about the topic discussed. We thought it would be a good idea to elicit the views of our AT readership about life’s most pressing questions, as put by EF.
There are no right or wrong answers to this series of polls. Please vote as you see fit and feel free to add comments:
- “The unexpected penis in your female date” – EF poses the highly topical question: “Is it cissexist, or anti-trans, to say that you wouldn’t date a woman who has a penis?” Answer away below!
2. EF has helpfully put together a list of ’10 things every intersectional feminist should ask on her first date’. In times past, would-be couples used to ask each other unimaginative questions such as ‘what do you do for a living?’, ‘do you have brothers and sisters?’ or even what are your interests/ hobbies/ pastimes’, all questions guaranteed to raise a yawn. EF’s list of questions is much more interesting and Current Year.
3. The Religion of Peace. In a savage world where fascist Trump is President of the US, and white supremacy rules, EF offers seven pratical ways in which it is possible to ‘Self-Care And Self-Love As A Muslim Woman In White Supremacist America’ Here, we elicit your views as to the role of Islam in today’s society
