yeah
so
caitlin moran legitmately just told me that she could not give a shit about the representation of WOC. SHE JUST SAID THOSE EXACT WORDS. as one of the most prominent feminists in the UK today, her particular brand of white middle class feminism is THE FUCKING PITS AND I HATE HER. please excuse my rage but CAN YOU BELIEVE THIS.
her book is called ‘how to be a woman’. HOW TO BE A FUCKING WOMAN.
can i not be a woman if i think representation of WOC in modern media is really important? more important than the representation of white women?
fuckkkkk her

ugh!

in which caitlin moran reaffirms her status as an arsehole

I kept wondering while I was reading this when she was going to talk about her research about WOC and feminism in the UK.  I was an American living in the UK at the time and was sitting on a coach from London to Newcastle thinking, “This’ll be fascinating!  A look at feminism in the UK!  And I’m in the UK!  Awesome!”  And it pretty much went downhill from there.
