You probably think your opinions matter.
You probably think youre an individual with unique experiences, thoughts and ambitions.
Well, I hate to break it to you, but according to current leftist orthodoxy, youre wrong. You see, your opinion only matters relative to your identityand where that identity ranks on the hierarchy of intersectionality.
If youre now thinking, What the hell are you talking about? you havent spent much time on a modern college campus.
Intersectionality is a form of identity politics in which the value of your opinion depends on how many victim groups you belong to. At the bottom of the totem pole is the person everybody loves to hatethe straight, white male.
And whos at the top? Well, its very hard to say, because new groups claim victim status all the time. No one can keep track.
So, how does this intersectionality thing play out?
Something like this:
Lets say youre a gay, white woman. Your opinion matters, but less than that of a gay, black woman. Why? Because while all women are oppressed by the patriarchy and all gays are oppressed by the heterosexual majority, blacks have a victim status that whites obviously dont.
Of course, a gay black womans victim status is less than that of a black trans woman, who ranks below a black, Muslim trans woman and so on. The more memberships you can claim in oppressed groups, the more aggrieved you are and the higher you rank.
Get it? Good, because its about to get even more complicated.
Intersectionality takes your victim status and uses it as the basis for creating alliances with other victim groups. Thirty or forty years ago, activists encouraged racial solidarity among blacks to combat oppression. But today, thats not enough. Todays activists demand blacks make common cause with...

More leftist inspired mind f***ing with a new twist.
IDK but a Freeper more wise than myself had the definition of intersectional feminism. It’s a crazy cat lady starter kit.
You mean.... normal, white male. Stop using fag words and meanings.
Thanks for the post—great information on the leftist mental disorder.
It sounds like the long-term solution is to declare all universities insane asylums. Big Pharma would love it because they could forcefully pump students and faculty full of anti-psychotic drugs! ;-)
"Intersectionality" means you get extra points if you fit into more than one victim class.
Intersectionality is simply a dressed up term for scapegoating. All “in” groups collectively designate a common enemy, who is then deemed responsible for all of their ills.
We have the power and do not givva sh!t what they think.
Let us know when they can back up their opinions with money, guns and expertise.
I’m a purple penguin. Where do I rank? Climate challenged. Height challenged. Can’t run a marathon and the NBA won’t have me. Where’s my restroom? McDonald’s doesn’t offer a fresh fish sandwich. Can’t buy clothing off the rack. People laugh and star at me. Don’t have a love life. Prissy white boys steal all the purple crayons in my safe space. David Hogg bullied me. I was really that short kid crying at the border but some girl’s head was photoshopped on mine. Where’s my reparations and Obama phone?
That 'tactic' seems very familiar.
When Libs do no have ammunition to attack an issue, they create new terms and try to redefine the issue with their own definition.
‘Intersectionality’ is one of a dozen or so terms that, to me, are relatively knew. Another I recently came across was ‘woke’ as in ‘woke comedy’.
It is little different that the AGW crowd claiming ‘global cooling’, then changing it to ‘global warming’ and later changing it to ‘climate change’. I think I skimmed one article that is using ‘time change’ as their newest rendition.
I cannot keep up with all of the new terms the SJWs* and snowflakes come up with.

I’m a transmogrified intersectual.
Where does my opinion rank?
Confusion, squared. There’s an end in sight.
A black undocumented Unitarian minister married to her lesbian partner - - proud parents of an adopted emotionally physically, and mentally challenged transgener 12 year old from South Africa they call 'thing'...
I wonder if it comes with litter?
I think it’s when you gridlock an intersection because you thought you’d still get through before the light changed.
It’s a microaggression that guys in pickup trucks get accused of but I’m a catlady with a Subaru and I’ll admit I’ve done it myself.
May be where this leads...Straight, white, conservative males are the new 1938 Jews
Sounds like 100% pure garbage to me. The people who dream up this crap are probably making more than an honest hard-worker,too.
The perpetrators are the same people they have always been. They have just chosen a new set of victims to blame everything on.
