Some ideas for a non-identitarian, egalitarian feminism

  • The mistakes and excesses of the second and third waves must be understood and discarded, while their accomplishments and good ideas must be preserved and expanded on.
  • The idea of intersectionality must be replaced with what I shall call 'multidimensionality', in which systems of social oppression or marginalisation are not conceived as binary oppositions (male/non-male, white/of colour, straight/LGBQ+, cisgender/transgender), but as systems which harm everyone bound by them in different ways (male disposability, female objectification, non-binary invalidation; straight fear of being perceived as 'queer'; cis male and female fears of being perceived as 'too feminine' or 'too masculine').
  • The demonisation of 'oppressor classes' (men, white people, straight people, cis people, Christians and culturally Christian atheists) must be recognised as toxic, counterproductive, and harmful and must be discarded.
  • Anecdotal evidence and personal experience must not be considered a substitute for statistical research and theory.
  • If you don't speak a dialect that normally refers to people as 'folk' and 'folks' then please stop referring to us as 'trans folk' or 'trans folks' it's really annoying and it bothers me for some reason
  • The two fundamental rules of the movement must be:
    1. Do no harm, whether physical or emotional.
    2. Respect everyone (and their identities).
  • The objective of the movement must be to change society such that it embodies those rules.
