Being an intersectional feminist can be really easy once you consider that we are not all simply just social activists. We all come from different backgrounds. We come from all around the world, have had different experiences, and have different identities. Not everybody is concerned about contraceptives; some social activists are worried about that their sexual orientation or gender will become illegal and ultimately fatal; others that their race and ethnicity will automatically set them back in life statistically.

Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche and cissexism
For the most part, I really dig Chimamanda Ngozi Adiche’s "We Should All Be Feminists", and was really excited to hear her sampled on Beyonce’s “***Flawless”, but I’m disappointed by Adiche’s blatant cissexism. I’d like to believe that she wasn’t delib...
