I have a dream. A dream where Femcore and LGBTQ+ activism unite to create the ultimate intersectional mashup. A dream where we break down barriers and uplift the voices of those who have been marginalized for far too long. A dream where we stand together as one community, fighting for equality and justice for all.
Now, I know what you’re thinking. “But wait, aren’t Femcore and LGBTQ+ activism already pretty similar? Aren’t they both about fighting against societal norms and advocating for marginalized communities?” And you’re not wrong! But just like mixing your favorite flavors of ice cream, the combination of Femcore and LGBTQ+ activism can create a whole new flavor explosion of awesomeness!
But let’s get real for a minute. The LGBTQ+ community, particularly trans and non-binary individuals, face unique challenges that require specific attention and support. So, as Femcore activists, we need to do more to uplift and support these voices.
We need to actively seek out and promote LGBTQ+ artists and activists. We need to share their work on social media, attend their events, and amplify their voices within the Femcore community. And let’s not forget, we need to recognize and challenge any instances of transphobia or homophobia within our community.
As feminists, we believe in the importance of intersectionality. We recognize that individuals experience oppression differently based on their race, gender identity, sexual orientation, and more. So, it’s our responsibility to listen to and uplift the voices of those who have been historically marginalized.
But we can’t stop there. We need to take action. We need to show up at protests, donate to organizations that support marginalized communities, and challenge societal norms that perpetuate oppression.
So, what does this ultimate intersectional mashup look like in action? It looks like women of color, LGBTQ+ individuals, and individuals with disabilities taking center stage in the Femcore movement. It looks like us actively seeking out and promoting the work of artists and activists who have been historically marginalized. It looks like us challenging the status quo and fighting for a world where everyone is treated as an equal partner in every aspect of society.
We have come a long way since the early days of Femcore, but we still have work to do. So, let’s get intersectional, let’s get loud, and let’s create a world where everyone’s voice is heard and valued. As MLK said, “Injustice anywhere is a threat to justice everywhere.” Let’s stand together and fight for a world where justice and equality are the norm.
