intersectionality to the greatest girl friendships in fiction Together they share divers. tl dr Save for very brief parts where trans women wrote this whole book was full of cis centric feminism and treated the transnonbinarygenderueer community as an afterthought or just didn t mention us at all It s like the brief mentions of us were just to say look we included people who aren t cisgender We ve succeeded at intersectional feminism Give us brownie points Tl dr Feminism that s cis centric is not intersectionalNote I m only going to address the issues that pertain to memy lane I m not going to delve deeper into issues with identities that aren t mine That s for other people to address I ll link their critiues as I find themI m always wary of cis white feminists who use the label of intersectionality That s why when I saw that the editor of this book was in fact a cis white feminist I already had my hesitations After all her recent thread of exclusionary tweets directed at the ace and aro communities was enough to make me believe otherwise about her intersectional feminism The book is a collection of essays from women mostly cis and a couple of men that was seeking to but failed to fully address the wide variety of feminist experiences Yes nothing will ever be perfect but when you fail to include the transgendernonbinarygenderueer community save for a token voice or two It s a glaring error that shows you re only including us for the brownie points The book prioritized the voices of cis women over anyone else And yes while including the experiences of cis women is important so is including prioritizing even the voices of trans women You re not representing the full range of womanhood if you re only including cis women For a better inclusive and detailed analysis of this read a nonbinary trans woman s perspective here were a couple of essays and other sections of the book I wanted to analyze specifically Let s start with the beginning of Chapter 2 Chapter 2 Sometimes they perform the female identity and sometimes they perform the male identity still other times feminists choose not to identify as any particular gender at all Okay Some other trans and genderueerfluidnonbinary people may not have any issue with this wording I fully accept that this will vary from person to person and I respect that But for me personally As a genderfluid masculine person it bugs the hell out of me Here s whyPeople do not choose their sexualities Ever have someone ask you or another person but why can t you just be straight That s the same problem I m finding here The wording reminds me of the wording bigots use to describe the orientations of gay and lesbian people Gender identity has nothing to do with sexuality but it s still an identity One does not simply choose to be cisgender transgender or nonbinary and so forth It s simply who they are Painting gender identity as a choice is insensitive to the plight of transgender and gender nonconforming people everywhere who have lost their families jobs housing and even their lives simply for being who they areOkay Let s move on Lily Myers essay I Have Always Eaten The Bread tackles the issue of eating disorders but fails in one area She focuses entirely on the issue of cis women who have eating disorders failing to be inclusive and mention the struggles of other marginalized gender identities who suffer from this She even goes on to say and I uote page 44 Yes men can feel insecurity about their bodies too But the same level of importance is not attached to body image for men Okay first of all I m gonna assume she means cis men because y know trans people are either an afterthought or just flat out nonexistent in the majority of this book But assuming she meant cis and trans her aforementioned statement was full of erasure Like look at me I m the living antithesis It s complicated but bear with me hereIn the world that I move around in every day I m read as a cis woman Many other masculine genderfluid people and trans men struggle in this way too Therefore we re still subject to the same bullshit that society pushes for cis women Be skinny be femme be conventionally attractive be pleasing to the male gaze and so forth Even asides from that for those who are AFAB and can pass as their masculine gender there s still a bunch of bullshit pushed at cis men that they have to endure Be leanfit have the right amount of facial hair have a certain dick size or you re not a real man etc I hesitate to criticize essays in general like this because I don t want to take away from what good they have done I don t want it to seem like I think they don t have a good message at all There are things that can do good but simultaneously do harm Messages like these benefit cis women but exclude and harm marginalized cis and trans men who are struggling with body image issues It s exclusionary af to claim that men don t suffer from body image issues and just brush them off You re ignoring our intersections of oppression and privilegeLet s move on to Chapter 3 On the introductory page it lists a few different gender pronouns and identities He She Ze They Hir ueer Trans A A lonely A sitting all by itself What do they mean by this Asexual Aromantic Agender WHO KNOWS Apparently neither of those three groups exist to the writer because they won t say the damn wordsLater on page 64 again gender identity is portrayed as a choice Gender refers to the identity an individual chooses to takethe only person who chooses their gender identityis the individual Ughhhh This reeks of the cis people are their gender Anyone else just chooses it attitude that I despiseSomewhere along the line Amandla is misgenderedWay later in the book on page 173 the writer tackles the issue of sexism men do not experience prejudice and discrimination in our society Whoa whoa whoa Hold the fuck right up Not even tackling the issue of cis men who experience fatphobia ableism and other isms in society what about us trans men and masculine genderueernonbinaryfluid people I m going to pull a page from my own personal experiences here to illustrate my point If any of you were following me on Twitter during my pregnancy last year you saw how much harassment I got from trolls by the hundreds because I stated that I was a boy and I was pregnant You re a woman and a bunch of other exclusionary bullshit clogged my mentions for awhile My boyhood was erased simply for my ability to support life within meSo look me in the eye and tell me again that men don t ever experience discrimination ever when I was harassed multiple times last year and misgendered simply for being a pregnant boyBasically to sum this all up I was really disappointed in this book Not only was some of it basic 101 stuff it was exclusionary as fuck and treated those of us who are transgender gender non conforming and so forth as an afterthought As if we were only included so the writers could say look we included people who aren t cisgender We ve succeeded at intersectional feminism Give us brownie pointsNo You have failed greatly at intersectional feminism when you treat marginalized communities like a fucking afterthought just for fucking goddamn brownie pointsall the middle finger emojis
