It’s true: feminist can be a label, a practice and a lens by which we view the world. But maybe doing the work of feminism is more important than identifying as a feminist. Without some boundaries for claiming the word feminist, it becomes meaningless. So once and for all: Can you be an anti-choice feminist? No. A Republican feminist? Unlikely. A feminist who thinks that the issues of importance to women of color or gay women or trans women or disabled women aren’t “feminist issues”? To quote Flavia Dzodan, “My feminism will be intersectional, or it will be bullshit” – and I’m not interested in bullshit. Feminism is a movement for gender justice [...] and one that recognizes the complexity of women’s identities and the intersection of oppressions. It can’t be negotiated otherwise.
