thanks for the critique, and the conversation.

I think that it’s important for white women, or white feminists, to understand that for many non white women, their white female counterparts have been the people who have been most oppressive. Of course, the reasons why this might happen is due to patriarchy in the general sense, but the people directly oppressing me have always been white women who identified as feminists. Men, white men, not so much directly. Always found them more approachable and understanding.

For me, personally, White Feminism is what kept me from identifying as a feminist and speaking against feminism for so long.
