new wave feminism

A quasi-academic look at Feminism, politics & race relations through the lens of a 20-something year old Nigerian American who was born & raised up in the (still) segregated south but has relocated to the "liberal" yet historic & traditional north.
This blog is my space for an interdisciplinary examination of race, gender, class, sexuality - all things intersectional & multi-dimensional.
Feminism the way I see it...

White America, appropriating and monopolizing things that do not belong to them, and then using them as tools to shame those who fall outside of tier empire standards of beauty.

Sounds about right. Taking things and then appointing yourselves the “arbiters” of who is “worthy” of it.

In college “being healthy” came with a stigma. I didn’t understand the wealthy upperclass wasp iteration of “fitness” and it made me uncomfortable to be who I was, and to try what my peers made seem obligatory. Now I’m over a year removed from that institution and I’ve finally come to terms to what being healthy means to me. And now whenever white women comment on the things I eat or do it just makes me uncomfortable. Like “how on earth are YOU able to live up to this?” Like chill I’m eating a salad because I know how to make a good salad, not to impress you or to apply membership into your club of superiority.

I wish I actually saw nerdland this morning.
