Why are all the hardcore feminists on LJ white girls?

Non-white women are too busy with actual opression.

[I'm reminded of The Master's Tools; I think it addresses this very point -- the lack of inclusion in feminism, both for race and sexuality.]

and that's exactly what I was thinking. It seems that from the LJ wave (it's its own wave at this point, surely) that if you are female, in any economic position, from any background, and with any level of education you are opressed and degraded and anything done by Angry White Men (and they all are) is done in a direct move against you, your rights, and the existence of your ovaries.

This is just the impression I have from reading feminist, and there was one the other day called something like ANGRYFEMS or something like that. They all said "wymyn". Really aggravating.

Is it just lj, or the whole net, or is it maybe the whole actual world? I honestly don't know, I don't really see feminism that well 'cos the only feminists who poke at me about it are the idiot ones, and I don't hang around with idiots. And, of course, the ones who don't poke me about it, I just think, "oh, it's a person, it's doing its job, I'll let it get on with things."

well I just said "on LJ" becuase, while the chicks who show up at rallys are always predominantly white, I didn't want to over generalize *too* much.

While they tend to scoff at male contributors (why can't a male be a feminist?) they tend to revere lesbian couples as like.. the end all be all of femininity... when in actuality, it's not like they had a choice, ya know?

hm. The only place where I could be said to revere lesbian couples is in porn.

Because everyone that sucks arse wants to blame someone else for there arse-sucking-ness.

White girls just don't have that many choices so they choose feminism?

If you got say 100 non english speaking paraplegic hispanic red heads adopted by australians that all sucked arse they would have different things they blame it on because their choices are so much wider and the odds of choosing the same thing that didn't actually cause the arse-sucking-ness but is being blamed for it become lower due to the arbitrary nature of of the choice of cause.

So in other words, they're whiners.

Or as I like to say, whiney cunts.

LJ is not what i would call the epitome of diversity in general anyway, and that ends up extending right into the communities.

But there are furry communities and everything!

Seriously, though, there are lots and lots of black/ asian/ latino people on LJ. But just as in real world land there isn't a whole lot of eating together.
