"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."

This is wrong, actually. A racist woman who is a feminist is a racist feminist. Call her out and deal with the problem. A transphobic woman who is a feminist is a transphobic feminist. Call. Her. Out. And. Deal. With. Her.
Stop pushing these people out of the movement by claiming that they are not even in it. They will stay. You need to deal with them to remove them. Stop trying to fix this with denial. (via commanderabutt)
