"White feminism" does not mean every white woman, everywhere, who happens to identify as feminist. It also doesn’t mean that every "white feminist" identifies as white. I see "white feminism" as a specific set of single-issue, non-intersectional, superficial feminist practices. It is the feminism we understand as mainstream; the feminism obsessed with body hair, and high heels and makeup, and changing your married name. It is the feminism you probably first learned. "White feminism" is the feminism that doesn’t understand western privilege, or cultural context. It is the feminism that doesn’t consider race as a factor in the struggle for equality.

White feminism is a set of beliefs that allows for the exclusion of issues that specifically affect women of colour. It is “one size-fits all” feminism, where middle class white women are the mould that others must fit. It is a method of practicing feminism, not an indictment of every individual white feminist, everywhere, always.

This Is What I Mean When I Say “White Feminism”

Bone Thugs N Harmony - “Tha Crossroads”

"Barbara’s been dumbed down!"

No she hasn’t. Here are three instances in the first issue where she uses her eidetic memory. And the first instance is when she was still hungover. 

I relate to Babs, because I was a 21-year-old girl at one point, You are not quite 100% sure of yourself, and you are making those mistakes and those self-discovery situations. I love drawing her, because I know what that’s like. She’s 21, she’s fighting crime, and she’s in grad school, so she doesn’t have time to be a big fashionista, but she still wears stuff that’s comfortable and cute, She has a roommate named Frankie, and she’s more loud and brash — I gave her more fashion-forward things and bright colors. Dinah Drake is in the book, and her superhero costume is a leather jacket and fishnets. She would have an edgier style than the rest of the girls, so I have her in leather jackets and spiky bracelets. Her style is probably the most like my own. But I do put my own clothes on a lot of the girls. When I did pick up comics when I was younger, Lois Lane would always be wearing a generic jacket and generic heels, You could tell the dude didn’t look up what business ladies were wearing in that day and age. It would take me out of the story. I would be reading, and—really? Those shoes?

"But MY Babs wouldn’t act like that!" 
Really? Fact is, if Babs after going thru mondo-shit and saving the damn city over and over wants to toss back a few brews and hit it with a himbo on a night off, I’m all about it. I hope they DON’T try to make this a damage thing, but a girl who has decided “fuck it, I’m living it up because I could be killed any minute now”.
Further, I love how everyone becomes a damn Puritan when it comes to single super heroines. They always hate it when a straight super heroine has a semblance of sexual freedom. They’ll scream and bitch about love and marriage with a lesbian, but never bring it up about the non-‘Mo ones. WW is always too good for anyone and the only reason Jessica Jones got to have free sex was because she was “damaged”, then when she got “fixed” she was already knocked-up and did a shotgun marriage.
Upcoming solicits acknowledge that she’s acting weird and a doppelgänger is even questioned. I hope it’s that she just wants to make the most of her free-time, just like BUFFY DID over a damn decade ago. I’m not aggro- one bit about the Slut Shaming topic. If you’re not ashamed, you have no worries, period, and if you are, figure out your own boundary and stay there and mind your own business about other women. In this case, I seem to be hearing from people who I’m pretty damn sure would suck face with a hot guy beer or no beer and that is baffling. I hope ‘damage’ isn’t an excuse, just a girl being a damn girl.
To end, you can keep “Your Babs”- morose, under-developed, and at times like Batwoman Jr. and I’ll keep mine: young, moxie-fied, DIY crime fighter gifted with perfect memory and digital savvy who issues karate kicks and we will be just fine.

earlier today i was thinking about the thousands of girls who post videos on youtube reviewing makeup and talking about their fav products and making tutorials and how no girl has ever once done it just to impress men like literally that whole community exists just for girls because it’s something that so many of us enjoy and yet men still think that we wear makeup for them

it’s not your job to entertain him by sending him nudes

it’s not your job to satisfy him sexually because he’s horny

you are not required to do anything that makes you feel uncomfortable or that you don’t want to do

don’t be scared of “loosing him”

he most likely wasn’t anything worth keeping

Girls need to be taught this from such an early age.

a boner is not a medical condition. you are under no obligation to do anything.

I should probably stop caring about what other people think so much. No matter who they are. It’s just kinda disconcerting that people went ga-ga for my ex who was on the mentally/emotionally abusive side (not to mention other cringing details at the end of it) but it seems hard to gain their approval of this guy who is anything but an egotistical brat with mommy and daddy issues that wanted to keep me chained to a perfect image of a “traditional” partner. I’m happy, but I guess this is just gonna stay close to home.
