How does defending sharia legislation translate into feminist intersectionality? For the Girls’s March, it’s a key a part of their work.
Glamour Journal is prepared to purchase into this pretend intersectionality. The newest difficulty, named Linda Sarsour certainly one of its Glamour 2017 Girls of the 12 months. As a co-chair of the Girls’s March, Sarsour has been honored by Time Journal and defended by the New York Instances as a goal of “right-wing hate.” However nobody has identified that Sarsour has really promoted Sharia legislation as useful.
Not solely that, Sarsour has vehemently gone after girls who’ve spoken out in opposition to Sharia Regulation, like Brigitte Gabriel and Ayaan Hirsi Ali, saying that they deserved “an ass whooping” and “their vaginas taken away” for making “entrance web page covers and shit.” (Stylish, isn’t she?) What makes this even worse is that Ali is definitely a sufferer of feminine genital mutilation.
The Girls’s March was all about “intersectionality,” in response to Glamour. (That’s, the pooling of the indignant complaints of assorted grievance teams right into a single, cacophonous whine aimed on the solely actual enemy: straight white males.) The co-chairs, together with Sarsour, “put most all the pieces else of their lives on maintain, working across the clock to construct web sites and advertising supplies and, most of all, to ensure intersectionality was a function, not a bug.” However the Girls’s March wouldn’t let pro-life teams march on the occasion, so was there intersectionality?
Glamour painted the Soros-funded Girls’s March within the brightest, most woke gentle potential: “Quickly [Teresa] Shook and [Bob] Bland joined forces, attracting the eye of 1000’s who had been indignant that voters had elected a race-baiting white man hostile to points like reproductive rights, civil rights, and honest pay.”
Even CNN’s Jake Tapper bought right into a disagreement with Sarsour over Twitter. He referred to as her feedback to Ayaan Hirsi Ali “ugly sentiments.” However Sarsour attacked Tapper as a “member of the alt-right,” despite the fact that Tapper is Jewish, and decidedly not espousing the anti-semitic alt-right beliefs.
However feminists know finest how you can flip a blind eye.
