    We know that for sure? I dont like malls either, malls are one of the signs of capitalism everything should be small stores and homegrown/homemade thingies.

    It depends what you mean by “god”.

    God is a symbol, so is a mall.

    True, but i dont think most smart people agreed with the general understanding of their time what god was was true. They had their own understandings that wouldnt be allowed to be learned to the "youth".

    Before it was fine, when liberals pushed liberation. Or even a few years ago when socialists pushed for low class to have it better, but now with intersectionalism its really horrible, its like racism and sexism is what we should focus on and work for but against asians/white and male.

    About the last thing no, just read what buzzfeed and other left wing say for example about mixed race relationship, hint they say its wrong. Because left now is racists, I dont like it, Im swedish and used to call myself socialist. (And yes I still am, just not intersectional).

    Literally all "intersectionality" is, as a concept, is the idea that one individual might face discrimination for multiple different facets, and those facets don't exist in a vacuum separate from all other facets.

    That's the whole thing. That a black woman might face prejudice because she's black and because she's a woman, and that "black women" have some particular racist and sexist tropes unique to that combination. That's all intersectionality is.

    Picking this particular hill to die on is spectacularly silly.

    "So in everything, do to others what you would have them do to you, for this sums up the Law and the Prophets." - Matthew 7:12

    If a man wants to be dominated, (by law, or God), they will dominate others... If a man wants to be liberated, they will treat others in kind.

    So to your observation, what is the thread that runs through the current "left"? (and the right, though more in the past.)

    Intersectionalism now is a ranking system, a victimsystem, you might not agree but thats how many people see it. Words change meaning.

    Citation fucking needed.

    Bear in mind I'm gonna hold you to a citation that establishes that this is a view held by the majority of left-wing people, not just whatever particular editorial writer you decide to take out of context.

    No. It isn't. That's not what the word means. This is a manufactured bit of nonsense people on the right made up. It has no connection to reality whatsoever.
