What this commercial, albeit not without cringe, attempts to do is show people outside of identity groups. That we’re more than the box unelected advocates (like our wonderfully self-righteous author) choose to put us into. Because if we’re actually just people, than oppression is not essential to our identity / experience.

The other major sin is the assumption social problems cannot be resolved on an individual level, therefore limiting our agency to solve these problems ourselves. Having a beer with someone is just “tolerating” the status quo, you claim.

You don’t speak for anyone but yourself; all you do is stand on the backs of people you’re allegedly representing so as to make your own voice heard.

My recommendation is to lay off the Everyday Feminism and read up on postmodern feminist literature of the 90’s, specifically that which is critical of intersectionality.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
