Any “feminist” who believes gender is more important than the issues Bernie stands for and is fighting for, when Warren (and Klobuchar) are most certainly NOT – is actually an enemy of feminism.

Bernie Sanders is the most feminist candidate running. Whose policies help women the most? Identity politics is for idiots.

This happens all the time. A women’s group endorses a right wing woman over a man who actually supports them on the issues.

I used to call myself a feminist until the 2016 election. If Hillary was supposed to be the be all and end all of feminism, I didn’t want to be one anymore. (or at least not use the label)

My wife is White and a Feminist. She will happily vote for Bernie if he’s nominated. She doesn’t vote based on gender and didn’t vote for Hillary (or Trump) in 2016. But she did vote for a woman named Jill Stein.

My read on this is that “white feminists” is shorthand for womens’ political organizations that are part and parcel of the establishment Democratic stable of such groups (e.g. Emily’s List). As such, they don’t so much represent women but instead herd them to the preferred candidates of the DNC.
So yeah, I totally understand why “white feminists” would react poorly to AOC endorsing the candidate the the DNC hates more than Trump.
His body recovered from his torment and became hale,
but the shadow of his pain was in his heart;
and he lived to wield his sword with left hand
more deadly than his right had been.

Emily’s List is a corrupt Republican cult. And any lurkers from SV can feel free to quote a Devil on that one.
