I have no idea in the world what a intersectional feminist is.
THose question seem to be a fine way to make sure there is no second date.

Now, now HW.....



This date is over.......

Seriously, I truly get most of the questions. I had a little trouble with the "sex worker" angle.

I'm not prejudiced against sex workers per se. A porn star is imo a sex worker, and I hope the sex worker making the headlines right now screws DJ to the wall.
Thanks from Hollywood

Actually the sex worker is one of the issues I had no issue with. Personally I think sex work, like drugs, should be legal and regulated. I think we'd be able to greatly reduce trafficking and protect the under aged.

It looks like the 10 points go way beyond dating, and a lot of potential readers may not have bothered reading if they think it's a post about dating advice.

#1 I wonder if the author gets into one big misgiving about BLM that I have: they've taken a shitload of money by way of foundation grants from Soros non-profits and the Ford Foundation that give these liberal moneybags outsiders a hand on the wheel when it comes to choosing leaders and goals for the groups. Sure, that will take care of any financial concerns organizers may have, but it seems to me that the goal of liberal foundations is to steer new radical movements away from radical economic analysis and into the waiting arms of the Democratic Party...which a left activist way back in the 1930's called "the place where movements go to die."

#2 One of the few black woman I talked to on the subject of clubs and dating, mentioned that the worst thing about being black in a mostly white community in Southern Ontario is 'I don't want to be stuck within my race...which limits my choices, but at least 90% of the time, if a white guy approached me at a club, he thought blackness must mean I'm a horny slut that's easy to bed the same night. When he finds out I'm not/he's gone!'

#3 Yeah, Ben Shapiro's crap is toxic masculinity sure enough! I notice pattern where it's guys like him who's 'masculinity' notions are fantasy life of nerds. Ben can't base any of his ideas on real life experiences.

I didn't read the hyperlink, but the fans of the "50 female privileges" video need to read the 160+ Examples of Male Privilege in All Areas of Life

#4 Sex work or prostitution is still not a subject agreed upon by all feminists. Some conservative feminist writers pull up stats from Europe about how pimping, exploitation and female slavery still go on in Amsterdam and other locales with legalized brothels. Doesn't look like a problem with a simple solution.

#5 Good to hear a mention for BDS, which is under direct attack right from the Israeli Government...which is trying to interfere with politics and media all over the world to stop comparisons of Apartheid with Israel's expulsions, ethnic cleansings, settlements, walls, separate rights and standards for Jews and non-Jews in a country trying to portray itself to the west as democratic and enlightened. Few feminist writers seem willing to take on BDS or any issues outside the US for that matter these days.

out of time...got to go through the rest later, thanks!
Thanks from Lyzza

The deal breaker to me is the illegal person one. Yes, there are illegal persons.

Hahahaha this article as literally become a viral meme. I love so much that you posted it in from a serious perspective.


Here is the list incase nobody wants to click the link



Here's the list:

1. Do you believe that Black Lives Matter?

2. What are your thoughts on gender and sexual orientation?

3. How do you work to dismantle sexism and misogyny in your life?

4. What are your thoughts on sex work?

5. Are you a supporter of the BDS movement?

6. What is your understanding of settler colonialism and indigenous rights?

7. Do you think capitalism is exploitative?

8. Can any human be illegal?

9. Do you support Muslim Americans and non-Muslim people from Islamic countries?

10. Does your allyship include disabled folks?




Roaming millennial breaks this down nicely. Seriously her videos are very vanilla

I always laugh at the Feminist love affair with the Islamic faith. You know the faith that kills gay people and forces women to be covered, denies them education and does not allow them to drive in many cultures. Yes, the Islamic faith, known for its feminist views. Actually the only thing Islam and Feminism has in common is subjugation, and since that is the base of both the idealogy..oh wait, I do see the love affair between the two now.
Thanks from Jimmyb and Sabcat
