So, now women who aren’t at least reasonably affluent, “normal”, and white can’t play?
Or we can play, but we have to shut up about it and play nice?
And you say it’s we disabled, lower-class, and/or brown women who are “forming clubs” and “being petty.”
A more beautiful demonstration of relative privilege would be hard to come by.
Of COURSE none of us are more privileged than any given man. Of COURSE even the richest woman’s position is tenuous. (Who even thinks it isn’t?) And of COURSE I don’t hate (or envy? are we in high school?) you.
But for shit’s sake, this “radfem hub” thing is like a country club. “Excuse me … you rabble? Over there. Yes. You poors, cripples, and browns. Your relentless presence is making it hard for me to enjoy my filet mignon. You’re going to have to either tone it down and conform, or get out.”
So can we just … not do that? Or are we going to miss the point (and fulfill stereotypes that men make about us) yet again?
Because as it stands now — Remember that one little internet blog we all have had gripes with? Right now, you’re Jill. Just on a different issue.
