General Intersections Quotes

‘like they now condemn racism and sexism’. Except many don’t.

I’m interested in hearing your thoughts about this.

I often see this quote in the animal rights community

“One day, people will condemn speciesism, like they now condemn racism and sexism”.

I think this is problematic because it downplays the existence of contemporary racism and sexism. These are currrently far from universally condemned and VERY much present in society.

Think this sounds good?
