Lmao yeahhhh the language is so disgusting. Even if it were a well meaning, question, though, I would still disagree with the notion that people should have to give up their traditional ways of life just because their lifestyles don’t fit Western notions of “success” and “modernity.” Like that is just horrible. But yeah… as soon as I hit “least developed” and then “primitive” in that ask I was done.

ragstoreverie replied to your post: I just found your blog, and i’ve just finished reading it. I love it. But i just feel like you think that these sort of things don’t apply on white women (i know that it’s not at all in the same way as asians or black girls is being treated) but i can’t count the times black men, or arabs have been behaving exactly like in the texts you publish here, against me, a 20 y/o white girl. Black men seem to be wanting to eaher talk about my “white, pink pussy” or even sing about it. Arabs mostly -

i feel her, but i don’t think she realizes men also want to rape and scream names at WOC. & she’s stereotyping arab women based on what she’s heard from arab men (i think). this is a messy rant, she should learn a thing or 2 about intersectionality.

Yeah, the ask is really confusing for me too, and I think, as you pointed out, the understanding of intersectionality is fundamentally off base. As ichumato put really well, the sexualization and oppression of white women IS different with their white privilege, but it is not an intersectional experience (in terms of race and gender). Hopefully the anon checks out the link I embedded in my response that elaborates on the formal definition of intersectionality.

Thanks for adding on!
