White Feminism

Have you ever wondered what White Feminism is? Are you vaguely familiar with the term, but still unclear on what it actually means -- and how it affects you?
No worries! Above, we give you a brief, basic introduction to White Feminism, and explain why we need to start talking about it more.

This short video made by Huffington post explains it quite nicely.

What do you think?

Edit:
An article that explains the video & what its trying to say.

Most modern incarnations of feminism are annoying, nasty and exclusionary. I dropped the label a long time ago because of the sheer ratio of bad feminists to good ones.

Hahaha. That's pretty funny isn't it? And it's not just the white feminists who seem to have lost touch with reason. The morons stating skewed opinions in hopes of gathering support have also lost touch. If this was more fun than irritating, I'd keep up with it.

The fact that it's about race among feminists shows me that they're largely a group of racist bigots who attempt to exclude anyone who isn't a small enough minority. Pretty soon they'll disappear because no one is oppressed enough to qualify.

If you're talking about modern ones who follow the first wave/traditional feminism then yes I agree.

I don't know, I'm talking about the third wave ones who hate men and put down other groups to bolster their own agenda in general. Misandrist brats grind my gears.

They're a bunch of selfish snots.

Third wave feminism is less exclusionary hence why white feminism became its sorta own thing.
Its a mix between the first wave & modern.

Be grateful that first wave/traditional feminists aren't the ones you see the most nowadays.
Outdated, actual man haters, burning bras, riots/protests with what we would consider to not at all be reasonable in this day & age.
:/

That's the first wave
Not the third.

When I heard they were trying to change the word "woman" to "womyn" because it has "man" in it, I stopped taking them seriously.

Exclusion is stupid.

You also can't say it's the first wave. First wave doesn't exist anymore. It's over. We're in the 'third wave' whether we like it or not, people can simply choose to bring back certain concepts from the first wave. They are obviously not people bringing back concepts of first wave feminism either.

What it comes down to are simply bigots that worry about their own stupid 'painful' world and not about others. 'Oh woe is me'. Am I surprised that it happens? NOPE.

Some people just don't understand that much of the sexism that women of color face is racialize. If these nuances are ignored, you have white feminism.

Wait isn't that just racism. Why does it have to be it's own thing.

Most issues of sexism- especially in the secular parts of the world- now come down to class/wealth.
Those at the top, who have the money, wish to perpetuate the societal norms that allowed their forbears to become the 1%... this is usually a very conservative outlook with the man as the breadwinner and the woman making the home and providing food/sex. The women are raised in special schools where they are encouraged to be subservient to the men, yet believe it is their idea to stay at home because who'd want to work anyway.

The rest of us are raised to look upon these people as superior. Naturally some of that filters down and so we have pay inequality, the ability to subtly (or not) discriminate against women and the pervading "rape culture" which - despite being prevalent amongst the working classes- is enabled by the judicial system, television, newspapers and even the educational system itself.

*removes tin foil hat*
The sooner people come to terms with the fact that we are a bunch of genetically mutated apes clinging to a rock we have no power over, and ultimately each ape is both as worthless and as important as the next, the better!

Of course. Feminism has become so preposterous with totalitarianism and perpetual victim-complexes that it's collapsing on itself via infighting over who is more victimized. They can no longer band together to bastardize straight white men. No, now it's expanded to include the bastardization of their fellow feminists women because they too are white. A delicious taste of self-served justice. A shame they couldn't have done something more productive with their time like studying high paying degrees to actually affect the gender earnings disparity.

When people say Feminism i think of my feminist ex


Porn is bad and people using it in relationships are cheaters
Porn is disrespectful to women
Men are disgusting and pigs
(continues on how men noticing women sexually makes them disgusting)

Men having thoughts about other women (intrusive) or even having any thoughts that are sexual and don't involve there partner makes them a bad person (its hard with intrusive thoughts and plus one can think something but they won't do it i mean i had a thought once about having sex with a stranger and told my girlfriend i didn't see it as a big deal as i was faithful and was like it's not big deal she lost the plot

Basically feminism to me means
