Mixed Feelings

While I am very excited that Ingrid and Cat are using their powerful platforms to discuss such important issues, I find that their discussions of feminism are very limited to gender discrimination. I was surprised and admittedly upset that there was no real discussion of how race, age, class, ability. etc. plays into objectification, rape culture, and slut shaming. As a white-passing person of color, I have always identified with Ingrid and while I understand that the youtube community is (as is society at this time) majority white, I think it is important (all the more important, even) that we not white-wash issues, especially when feminism is so controversial because of its history of being exclusive to white, able, upper-class educated women (while the quote from Coretta Scott King is certainly powerful and perhaps useful to discuss in terms of sexual oppression, it is important not to co-opt others’ experiences of social injustice. Intersectional feminism would certainly discuss racial discrimination as well, so I am not even sure that this quote needs to be reconfigured for gender. Indeed, I suggest that the two produce a podcast to discuss intersectional feminism as this would be a great learning experience for all). Further, gender was discussed here in terms of “both genders.” I question this wording. Perhaps they did not mean to present gender in this way, but if so, I must ask if they really believe there are only two genders…As Ingrid acknowledged, there is no such thing as a perfect feminist/advocate. I really appreciated this acknowledgement and I hope my critiques are taken constructively.

What a bummer

I love Ingrid so much, and she's so smart and interesting, I just don't like Cat. She's on this high horse that seems to be the exact opposite of what Ingrid is trying to convey on the podcast. For example, when they were reading that account that shows awful messages that women get from men on dating apps, and Cat was like "well, I just have better instincts." No, it's not the women's fault for getting those messages. And this that wasn't the first time that she talked about how great she is. Ugh, such a bummer because I would love this podcast otherwise.

I want to love it, but...

I've always loved Ingrid Nilsen (been watching her videos for years) and was genuinely excited to hear her delve into some of the topics she has mentioned on YouTube. I feel like she has a lot to offer and challenges herself. That being said... it might just be me, but I feel like Cat is the wrong person for her to collaborate with on this podcast. Everything I don't like about the podcast is connected to her comments. Again, this might just be me! Everyone is different.
