regarding this. (clarisse at feministe making a post to tons of links about transformative justice).
i don’t even know what to say any more.i don’t know how to explain that post made me sorta want to throw up how she had that big old fucking link to incite! up top with no context, no explaining how she found this group, no reference at all to her *learning*—she’s somehow inadvertantly become the “teacher”—the *expert*—again….
never in *conversation*. always the expert, the teacher. even when they’re wrong.
Not explicitly Schwyzer-related, but relevant as:
1. Clarisse Thorne has been one of Hugo’s most ardent defenders, and
2. This is the way she positions herself as an expert over women of colour, while appropriating their work in order to make herself SEEM like said expert, which
3. Is basically Hugo Schwyzer’s approach to feminism as well.
4. And the approach of many other professional/”career” Feminists, and the culture of which Hugo Schwyzer is a natural byproduct. Like, you know… the shit of the giant colon that is such Feminism. Or something.
