"Intersectional feminism?" I can't even keep up with the terminology. A new term every day.

Intersectional just means highlighting more than one form of discrimination.

Thanks for the clarification. At first I thought that maybe it was referring to the obligation on men to respect traffic rules regardless of the gender of the people they're interacting with, like maybe cars are cutting women off all the time.

I'm an intersectional religio-linguicist. I believe in protecting the rights of all religionists and of all language communities but also recognize that sometimes some religionists or members of unofficial language communities might be discriminated against for other reasons too.

How does that sound?

Just wait till every politicians comes up with his mot du jour.

“Like Beyonce says, to the left,” Ashton’s now-deleted tweet read. “Time for an unapologetic left turn tor the #NDP, for social, racial, enviro, and economic justice.”
Yeah right. That is why the NDP have some ridings only women can be the candidate.

“Irreplaceable” was actually co-written by Ne-Yo and Tor Erik Hermansen, a white Norwegian.

Cultural appropriation.

I'm not sure why people can't embrace their culture and identity.. I mean, this is what makes the Human Race so interesting, the different cultures, national or geographic origins.

It's not what's on the outside.. however, advertising and Hollywood has amplified this so, it's what's on the inside.. your heart, and what you're will to do to help out your fellow man..

Rex Murphy: A whiff of BLM grapeshot, and Niki Ashton waves the surrender flag (I dare not call it ‘white’, in this context)

It is a great wide world in which the strangest things bring people together. Two prominent feminists, from different political parties, one of whom is already a leader, the other seeking that status, have found themselves in the judgement court of the inquisitional Black Lives Matter branch plant in Canada. Just over a month ago, our pridefully feminist Prime Minister was left withering in the rhetorical wind from a blast issued by BLM Toronto’s megaphonic Yusra Khogali.

The stupendous gust aimed straight at the Prime Minister carried the accusation that Trudeau — a veritable Bambi of inclusivity and non-discrimination — was a “white supremacist terrorist.” A combo David-Duke-bin-Laden of our frozen, peace, order and good government North.

Is there is some extreme and hyperdistant point at which the finite merges into the infinite? Probably not, a rustic education deprives me of certainty on the matter. But should such a point exist, it must obviously extend (at least) to the very edges of our vast ever-retreating cosmos. Only such an unfathomable distance could serve as an approximate measure of how far the BLM’s rude slur is from the facts of the case. The one adjective in the whole string of ugliness mudballed at Trudeau that fits is “white,” and even that is not one he would ever emphasize. Whatever thoughts Trudeau has, they are not, ever, conditioned by his skin colour. If Justin Trudeau is a racist menace, Bambi is a great white woodland shark.

In short, Khogali’s captious catcall was a baseless and crude, as I wrote in these very pages a few weeks back. But why settle for a hit when you can work on a streak? This week another division of BLM, the Vancouver clubhouse, decided to take down another feminist — this time an intersectional one (feminism is a cube of many squares) — and a candidate for the leadership of the NDP, Ms Niki Ashton. Ashton, vigorous and stout-hearted as any in the Parliamentary playpen, a social justice warrior of highest repute, offered an attributed quotation from a Beyonce song to her candidacy’s announcement. She took three words (preposition, definite article and adjective) from the opening stanza of that fine ballad Irreplaceable, which, so you may savour its peerless wordplay and invention, I offer here in full.

To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left
To the left, to the left

~~~~~~~

Ashton’s tribute, however, captured the hair-trigger ire of a monitor from the BLM Vancouver diocese, who instantly let fire one of those bolts from Twitter’s angry cloud that are so frequent these days, flailing Ashton for “appropriating Black culture,” requesting an immediate “Delete” and scorching her for a callous affront to the ineffable ideals of “intersectional feminism.”

Call The Hague. Assemble the blue helmets. Summon Louise Arbour. NDP candidate disses Beyoncé; invades intersectional feminism! BLM feminist under trigger warning fire! Security Council meeting on North Korea suspended! To your Safe Spaces, everyone, quickly!

I would call this foolish, but it is too foolish to call foolish. The same applies to petty, pointless, wrong, irritating, smug, small-minded and witless. But here’s the rub. Ashton, seeking the leadership of a national political party, bowed and genuflected to this inanity instantly, waved the surrender flag — I dare not call it white in this context — and apologized. One hopes her platform does not include courage. At least Justin Trudeau, when he felt the wound of being called white and supremacist and terrorist, had the fortitude to ignore the lunacy hurled at him. Ashton capitulated utterly, and rounded off her retreat with the bold declaration that she “would not tolerate racism or hate-speech directed at BLM or any other movement.”

To which the question may innocently be asked, where was the “racism or hate-speech” in the phrase “to the left” and how was it directed at anyone? The whole episode is rank with the conspicuous righteousness Black Lives Matter radiates on every issue, and virtue-signalling from both parties so thick as to be suffocating. Of the two feminists we have studied here, I conclude Justin Trudeau, Liberal — male — to be the sturdier.

Actually what's funny is in Canada we keep being told how multiculturalism is a strength. But god forbid you try to embrace someones else's culture (especially if you're White) without the accusations of racism and cultural appropriation flying around.
How exactly is that a strength again? I mean geez, we have to accept different people or else the thought police will come after you but if you accept them a little too much, well then you're a racist committing cultural appropriation.

Does this all mean that as a French Canadian who was raised Catholic, I must stop using any language other than French, stop eating any dish of non-French-Canadian origin, andreject any religion other than Catholic otherwise I am guilty of the unpardonable sin of cultural appropriation?
