Ultra-feminism’s mournful obsession with words and categories is making the movement a joke.
Ah yes, today Louise Mensch treats us to a new ouvre where she decries that thinking of intersections of race, class, gender, sexuality, etc is very difficult and pointless and we should, instead practice “reality based feminism” (I wish I was making this up).
Here I present you with our new politics: Michelin feminism, where we have redefined the goals. Now we get to aspire for white, cis women to enjoy the perks of fine dining in starred establishments and extended stays in 5 star hotels. Because if we are going to aspire to the crumbs of capitalist, heteronormative, racist patriarchy, at least we should make those crumbs tasty.
