"Let's start by pointing out that intersectionality isn't such a scary word, and gasp, plenty of people who haven't been university-educated are capable of looking it up and understanding it. Here's a good definition. It's not that hard to understand. It's essentially a useful way of saying that things like sexuality, race, class, religion, and ability overlap. For example, a White woman's experience of sexism may be vastly different from a Black woman's. Has your brain died from exhaustion yet? It's so condescending to suggest that non-academics just aren't smart enough to get this."
