Intersectional means participants are expected to be aware of privileges they hold as well as disadvantages, as privilege intersects and manifests in complex ways. 

Example of how to be a good intersectional feminist: 

- Avoid critiquing the ideas, words, lives and cultures of marginalised individuals from groups we don’t belong to – e.g. promote the words of Indian women if referencing Indian rape culture, black women if talking about Beyonce’s feminism, trans people if discussing trans issues, etc. 

- Allow the voices of minority, oppressed and marginalised groups to be heard more strongly on their own issues than those of white, cisgender, heterosexual, able-bodied, neurotypical and male people. As such this is not a forum for “transcriticism” from cisgender feminists, for white critiques of black culture, or comments that infantilise or stigmatise sex workers, to give three examples.

Know what’s weird? Day by day, nothing seems to change. But pretty soon, everything’s different.
