Intersectionality & Oppressions

INTERSECTIONALITY

KC
Crenshaw on Intersectionality
“You’ve got to show that the kind of discrimination people have conceptualised is limited because they stop their thinking when the discrimination encounters another kind of discrimination.”

Intersectionality and Abolitionist Veganism
“[…] how we talk about veganism, and what else we do, matters in terms of changing others perceptions and practices. If we are racist, or sexist, in our language, then we risk alienating others, or making them antagonistic. And as people who are fighting a very fundamental oppression, the oppression of other animals, we also should consider the end to oppression of human animals, oppression of various kinds.”

9 Ways We Can Make Social Justice Movements Less Elitist and More Accessible
I didn’t know what “trigger warnings” or “intersectional systemic oppression” were. I didn’t dress in ripped denim and black leather, or have a colorfully dyed, asymmetrical haircut.  I wasn’t white, like most of the people in the room. I didn’t even know who this “Judith Butler” person that everyone seemed to love so much was.

Lesson on White Fragility
“The author ignores the #BlackLivesMatter campaign which aims to center the discussion of racism with persons of color, and then the author proceeds to suggest that the Black struggle for freedom is the property of whites, that the struggles of others are shared or even owned by whites. How is that even possible? Are whites now being pulled over by police for the crime of driving while white?”

ABLEISM
Ableism
Ableist Language and Solutions to It
“Many people who identify with particular disabilities or disability in general may use descriptors from this list in an act of reclaiming the language. You may well too! BUT if you do not identify with a particular disability/disabled identity, it’s probably appropriative to use some of those terms.”

Ageism in the Animal Rights Movement
“Vegans do not get to exploit one group as a means to end the exploitation of another group.”

 

Pam-Anderson-Poster
Ageist Stereotypes in the Vegan Movement
“Ageism is structural or systemic in our social world, meaning people learn it and enact it through social institutions, language, and organizations.”

A Feminist Critique to Cisgender
“First, “masculinity” and “femininity” are not monolithic, static concepts that are wholly embraced or wholly discarded. Socially assigned gender roles encompass entire lives’ worth of behaviors and expectations, from cradle to grave.”

The Many Faces of Homophobia: Microaggressions and the LGBTQIA+ Community
“Common racial microaggressions include showing surprise when a black person is eloquent or asking what country an Asian-American person is from. While these remarks may be made with friendly intentions, the outcome is the same: implicit stereotyping or othering people of color.”

Black, Out, and Tired of Casual Homophobia
“Homophobia in the black community is normalized in the first place because of religious norms, a backlash against any perceived “threat” to black masculinity (including gay men and women), or rejection of homosexuality as a “white” thing.”
