Sounds like a variation on Brosocialists, where smug, entitled cisgender white boys patiently explain to women and minorities about how we must simply must put aside our struggles for the sake of the revolution and not get hung up on all the Idpol business. It's easy for them to say that, since they are not directly affected by Idpol and often benefit from it. Everyone else is drafted into the Idpol fight from day one.

Though I doubt this guy has much love for the weaksauce, milquetoast Democratic Party, I felt this cartoon aptly summed up entirely too many Brosocialist discussions: https://coinsh.red/p/Liberal_Intellectual_On_Why_We_Should_Ignore_Identity_Politics.png

My idea of what feminism is is not warped, I can assure you. I am also familiar with Simone de Beauvoir and Emma Goldman, who is one of the people who have inspired my political stance the most. I am merely claiming that anarchy rids a society of all hierarchy, meaning that feminism is simply implied. The concept of feminism is therefore not useful once anarchy has been achieved. It is however most certainly a stepping stone in the pathway to anarchy. I would like to remind you that Goldman actually opposed first wave feminism and the suffragette movement. She was perhaps an anarcha-feminist, as she opposed all hierarchy including the patriarchy. As you seem well versed in feminist and anarchist literature, you have most likely come across this Goldman quote before. "I demand the independence of woman, her right to support herself; to live for herself; to love whomever she pleases, or as many as she pleases. I demand freedom for both sexes, freedom of action, freedom in love and freedom in motherhood." This is all included in anarchism.

weird take on intersectionality but ok

Every useless anarcho-bro needs this stamped on his head:

Anarchy is a constant struggle against oppression

And this on his arse:

Anarchy is NOT a fairytale utopian society where unicorns fart equality juice over everyone
