16. It's not new. Its increasing use on DU reflects a greater awareness of the concept.

In most uses regarding women, it stems from the title of Flavia Dzodan's seminal essay, "My Feminism Will Be Intersectional or It Will Be Bullshit."

Feminism in mainstream culture usually means "white middle-class het/cis feminism," when it needs to be much bigger, meeting people where their identities intersect with "feminist." The tent needs to be bigger, or it's bullshit.
