Re: Reddit’s /r/TwoXChromosomes and Fourth Wave Feminism

I wonder if, instead of tried and true feminists being a bit skeptical of this self-defined fourth wave, they might actually support this fourth wave with ideas, engagements and their perspectives of intersection. I have seen some of the writings of these tried and true feminists claiming that there is no real fourth wave. However, I was struck by the manner in which their comments were so vociferously designed to discount the claims of this 'cyber-generation feminists'.

Intersecciones

I frequently peruse Reddit, a popular online community in which users vote on content. It is made up of thousands of ‘subreddits’—subject-specific communities moderated by volunteers—where users can comment on content. Popular posts that are ‘upvoted’ on each subreddit make it to the site’s front page. According to the ‘About’ page, Reddit has around 150 million unique visitors each month from over 200 countries who visit over 7.5 billion pages.
