It’s Pride Month, when people commemorate the Stonewall Uprising—a major turning point in the movement for gay rights.
But for the Washington, D.C. Dyke March (a leftist, ****-centered and activism-focused alternative to traditional gay pride parades), that can mean only one thing: activists using “intersectionality” to excuse their own bigotry.
Intersectionality - Idea - People - Part - Systems
Intersectionality is the idea that all people are part of “overlapping systems of privilege and oppression.” It necessitates an obsessive focus on a person’s identity—racial, gender, religious, ethnic—in order to determine how oppressed and/or privileged that person may be. It then passes judgement about the validity of that person’s opinions—and how racist they are.
And although intersectionality says that individuals who identify as part of several oppressed groups face multiple layers of discrimination, often, Jewish LGBTQ+ Zionists don’t qualify. To the contrary, Israel is placed at the center of these intersecting systems of oppression, much as Jews historically were demonized as the center of worldwide conspiracies.
Events - Evolution - Movement - Linda - Sarsour
One of the most significant events in the evolution of this movement was in 2017, when Linda Sarsour claimed that there was no room in feminism for people who support the Jewish state.
In an interview in The Nation, Sarsour asserted, “It just doesn’t make any sense for someone to say, ‘Is there room for people who support the state of Israel and do not criticize it in the movement?” There can’t be in feminism. You either stand up for the rights of all women, including Palestinians, or none. There’s just no way around it.”
Course - Time - Sarsour - Commitment - Women
Of course, as we noted at the time, Sarsour’s commitment to stand up for “all women” does not extend to women who disagree with her; instead, Sarsour evidently feels that there is room within feminism for her to threaten those dissenting women with bodily harm.
Like Sarsour, some LGBTQ+ activists have tried to claim that there...
