It is time to let our voices be heard. By making us dumb down our work to fit into a narrative that we are trying so hard to break out of you’re consistently telling us that white, eurocentric ideals, are the ideals we need to be focussing on and fitting into. This is the exact reason why intersectional and transnational feminism exists — to break free from that cycle, to break free from those ideals. We will stop using generalizations when generalizations no longer fit the lump sum of those groups.
This article is amazing. You break it down so well. We should never change our language to be more palatable to the very groups we are speaking about. Thanks for writing this.
