santagayartisan asked: A woman might be anti-feminist because feminism has a history of transphobia, racism, and classism? There is a distinct difference between feminism and a woman's rights movement.
"feminism" as I understand it isn’t a monolithic entity. There are flavors of feminism that are quite aware of the privileges often found among white, middle class, cis-dominant feminisms and include intersectionality instead of only looking at the issues of white, middle class, cis women. so that’s what I think of when I think of feminism—not a monolithic ideal, but a number of branches.
