Gonna keep a tally of messages I get from a) white feminists completely proving my point and b) people who think this comic proves feminism is worthless because I criticized one part of it. (Even despite me writing these words underneath the comic.) Then I’ll add them all up, see which column has more, and then drink myself to sleep either way.
Haha… this is why we can’t have nice things.
I’ve been following this artist since the beginning of high school, maybe earlier. As a black womanist/feminist, seeing this comic makes me smile. White feminist tend to silence the voices of black women and other POC, steal their work and not give them credit. And instead of being more inclusive, white feminist tend to want to gear the conversation towards themselves. Being a POC or queer while being female adds to our human experience as a whole, which is generally erased in mainstream feminism. I am black and female, my experiences are different than those who are white and female. Awesome comic :)
