if I'm not talking to you, I'm not talking to you

They say that if you believe
in the equality of genders,
you are a feminist
and should call yourself one.

Tell me,
you who
for that reason
call yourself feminist.

Do you believe
black, Asian, Native women
are equal to white women?

Do you believe
blind, autistic, chronically ill women
are equal to nondisabled women?

Do you believe
lesbian, bi, asexual women
are equal to straight women?

Do you believe
transgender women and genderqueer people
are equal to cisgender women?

Do you believe
poor and cash-strapped women
are equal to well-off women?

Be honest
with yourself,
if with no one else.

If some women
are less equal
in your eyes
than others,

either you are not a feminist
(to paraphrase Flavia Dzodan)
your feminism is bullshit.
