    4 Nude Lingerie Options for a Range of Skintones

    (Although if we are talking language as much as actual options, “nude” is a problem term… but I am not sure how happy I’d feel if my matching tone was labelled “mudslide”.)

    Yup, the article does talk about issues with the term, particularly the problem with equating “nude” and “beige.”

    There’s nothing wrong with the concept of “nude” lingerie (i.e. lingerie that is meant to blend seamlessly into your skintone). There is a problem, however, when the word “nude” refers to only one skin color…and it’s never dark skin.

    "

    The people who are most commonly on the receiving end of the admonishment about being ‘too angry’ are, usually, the people who bear a disproportionate burden when it comes to the issue under discussion. ‘Feminist issues’ often harm women of colour, poor women, queer women even more strongly than they affect white middle-class women. In a fair world, that would instantly translate into deferential treatment for those perspectives, with the charge being led by those who represent those most affected. In the world we live in, however, the charge is led by those with greatest access (which usually means white people with money and formal education).

    It is a perversion of justice indeed to be told that your level of investment in an issue is ‘too high’ by the standards of someone who is less exposed the harms accompanying that issue.

    It is a further perversion to be told that the issues that affect you aren’t ‘the real issues’ because they affect people who are not representative of the majority.

    And when that perversion manifests itself again and again at the hands of the same group of people (a group that, in other circumstances, is the oppressive class), it ceases to be merely wrong in fact, and becomes linked to a larger series of injustices that the group seeking ‘solidarity’ never seems to get around to. A social justice movement should be concerned with the issues of those most vulnerable to injustice, and yet articles like this one in the Nation only serve to reinforce the fact that justice will be indefinitely delayed by those who are the least vulnerable.

    And that hurts.

    Remarkable. This quote is from his essay  On “Toxic Feminism” - The Nation and The People, in response to Michelle Goldberg’s piece in The Nation, “Feminism’s Toxic Twitter Wars.” The latter post purposely obscures structural power among other things (which I discussed in my own post, in detail) and here his quote brings this back to the surface. Mainstream feminism cannot continue to pretend that Black women and other women of colour (as well as trans women, sex workers etc.—those groups not centered in feminism) who respond—to how mainstream feminism is basically a tool of the State and facilitating oppression—to White feminists are “harming” them by not indulging White supremacy’s impact on feminism.

    "If you are neutral in situations of injustice, you have chosen the side of the oppressor. If an elephant has its foot on the tail of a mouse and you say that you are neutral, the mouse will not appreciate your neutrality."
