im not sure if i understand the difference in people into identity politics and people into intersectionalality or intersectional anti-oppression politics(/practice?). apart from the obvious recognition of multiple oppressions with the latter. and i dont get what either of these has to do with an anarchist position.
can anyone help me out?
heres a quote from the 2nd paragraph of dragonowl's 'against identity politics', then theres no real mention of intersectionality anywhere else throughout the (quite long) text.
"Intersectionality - the recognition of multiple forms or axes of oppression, with complex interacting effects - is an effective theoretical response to the problems of Identity Politics, but there have clearly been difficulties putting it into practice. In identity-linked movements, some people use intersectionality as a way to avoid the idea of principal contradiction, although occasionally in practice, people who claim to be intersectional end up treating one or two oppressions as primary. Nevertheless, the fact that not all identity-related theories or movements need to be treated as Identity Politics does not mean that the influence of Identity Politicians is trivial."
