QotD: “the term “intersectionality,” coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, refers to the intersection of race and misogyny”

To clarify my earlier post, the term “intersectionality,” coined by Kimberlé Crenshaw, refers to the intersection of race and misogyny, and should only be used to refer to the experience of racialized misogyny. It was never meant to be used as an identity (“intersectional feminist”), and should definitely not be used as an identity by White women at all.
