Feminism is pretty bougie. It has taken me years to be able to access the language tools necessary in order to be given equal footing in a lot of different discussions. It's always the academics who stand out the most and have the power to shift discussions. We are also seeing that same language being used to create walls to "other" opponents, rather than engage them. I feel this is partly why Trump won the election. He just got through all the specialized language and pandered to emotions, as well as real economic despair. (I'm not a Trump supporter, so don't get me wrong.)

I guess a way to sum it up is that feminists have to be careful to not get too heady. It needs to stay practical, solvent, and accessible to everyone. It's not that the higher discourse isn't important but it shouldn't be running the show. IMO the academics don't have a clue what is going on in the real world because they are so distanced from the ground level struggles.
The artist's job is not to succumb to despair, but to find an antidote to the emptiness of existence. -W.A.
