Precisely half of the regular Feministe bloggers right now are white, and half are not.
If I read that Feministe is a white or a mostly white blog one. more. time…
sorry, it is still a blog that centers whiteness. it IS a white blog. just because some women of color write on it, read it, comment now does not change the reality that it centers a very specific outlook that is entrenched in white privilege and is openly silencing of non-whiteness-centering anything.
ETA: more than feeling erased (which i do understand) by people calling it a white blog despite it featuring some woc writers, you as one of those woc writers should strive to CHANGE how completely fucked up the site is. stop getting pissed at people for seeing it as white because it is so fucked up, and instead get pissed at why you choose to write for such a fucked up site, and work with so much fucked up on-going whiteness.
I’m not sure if you clicked through to that post, otherwise, please see my latest tumblr post.
I am striving really hard, every day, to change the status quo there. I am doing my absolute best, at all times of day, writing as hard as I can about race issues, on the blog and in comments. I’m going to keep getting pissed at people who erase my work, and I’m going to keep getting pissed at that status quo. I don’t see why that work isn’t worth recognising.2 years ago • 69 notes
