I can’t stand, nor do I read the academic feminists. Don’t care for the academic theories, as they are pretty bizarre. Most everyday feminists- do not give a damn about those crazy theories. I don’t. It doesn’t make me any less of a feminist.

Here is what people like you do, you find the most boring, insane, obtuse, bizarre feminist theories you can find, and label it “feminism” and then attack people based on these theories.

I don’t ascribe to any of that crazy, academic crap. Again, doesn’t mean I am not a feminist.

Academics are:

1. Boring

2. Only talk to one another -and no one really gives a dam about most of what they write or think

3. Make basic concepts seem far more complicated than they actually are, cause this is how they pretend to work and bring value to the “research university.”

4. Love to. Intellectually masterbate in front of a captive audience-students.

I’m not down with that particular hustle. I only do real talk.

Feminism not that complicated! Like I have said many times before feminism is real simple- give me the same basic legal and economic ability to participate in society as men have: the right to own property-as opposed to being treated as property or chattel — huge in European history- women being auctioned off to the highest bidder. Thanks to my favorite show, Game of Thrones, we have all got a really good idea about what that involved. This:

This scene outraged white women everywhere -as it should. That is yall history and your life without feminism. Raped and tortured for kicks. You dying to go back to this? Have at it. You are not taking me with you.

I like bell hooks and June Jordan, strong, practical, African-American feminists, who tell it like it is. Want to quote some feminist theory to me, that’s probably a good place to start.
