    They face these no more than men of similar backgrounds. Women are not a homogeneous socioeconomic group anymore than are men.

    It's the urge to collectivise people... to say "you all share this characteristic so you all share this problem (sexism racism etc)"

    When the idiocy of this was pointed out enough times... people have more than one characteristic... they invented intersectionality... it just got more toxic from there. For example, if someone has those characteristics but doesn't conform to the group stereotype (kanye west, Katie hopkins) look at the media excreta heaped upon them.

    As someone who isn't a collectivist, believes in people as free thinking individuals... it's been great fun to watch but this mindset does so much damage.

    I know you know all this Vince.. . Just thought it was worth saying.

    You have to show that when a list is exclusively male it is because it is exclusive of women in its discrimination.
