DO THE COMPLICITY CLEANSE!
THE COMPLICITY CLEANSE IS AN EASY WAY TO STOP BEING COMPLICIT IN THE EVERYDAY MARGINALIZATION OF VARIOUS GROUPS OF PEOPLE. THEY BREAK DOWN VITAL INFORMATION INTO BITE-SIZED PIECES THAT ARE EASY TO DIGEST. WE LIKE IT BECAUSE THEY MODEL THE PIECES AFTER FOOD COURSES! IF YOU HAVEN'T NOTICED, WE LIKE FOOD. DO THE COMPLICITY CLEANSE TODAY BY HEADING TO COMPLICITYCLEANSE.COM NOW!
We want to take a second to clarify what we hope to accomplish with our podcast. We are two white women who discuss intersectional feminism at length. This means that we discuss the experiences of people of color (POC), particularly women of color (WOC), as well as otherwise oppressed/marginalized groups of people to which we do not belong. This is a sensitive task that we do not take lightly. Let us be clear that we intend to use this podcast as an educational tool for other white or otherwise privileged individuals who may be struggling to understand intersectional feminism and why it is important.
We do not wish to use this as yet another platform for the privileged to whine about their perceived oppressions. We do not wish to use this as an educational tool for the very groups of people we intend to discuss. WOC, LGBTQQIAA (see the breakdown of these letters here), etc. already know their own experiences. They already know they are not afforded the same opportunities, respect, and resources as other people. They need no reminders or education on the matter. We ask that you respect our wishes and only use this educational tool in the ways that we have intended. Thank you!
