A racist woman is not a feminist;
she doesn’t care about helping women, just the women who look like her and can buy the same things she can.A transphobic woman is not a feminist;
she is overly concerned with policing the bodies and expressions of others.A woman against reproductive rights
— to use bell hook’s own example, and an issue close to your heart — is not a feminist;
she prioritizes her dogma or her disgust over the bodies of others. An ableist woman is not a feminist;
she holds some Platonic ideal of what a physically or mentally “whole” person should be and tries to force the world to fit inside it.
